We're doing a big brother day, but waiting until after the baby is born. We are celebrating our toddler becoming a big brother, and kind of making a big deal about how exciting and cool it is to be a big brother. We are getting a gift for him from the baby & mommy and daddy, and letting him pick out a cake (he already has his eye on a Thomas cake at the bakery, it's really small and pretty cool). I have a feeling that the transition is going to be a bit tough for him, so I want to make him feel special and not left out of the process. A friend of mine did this with her oldest recently and said that she noticed a difference right away in the way that he wanted to help out with his little brother after that, etc.
