We are hoping DD (5yrs old) will be present for this little guys' birth. We plan to labor at home as much as possible and then go to the birth center late in labor. Anything you recommend packing for her? We have quiet activities, snacks, comfy change of clothes, pillow, blanket.... what else am I forgetting?

Sounds like you have it covered. I'd bring coloring book and mini dvd player with plenty dvds too.

If you already have a portable CD player or iPod or something, you could get her some books on tape (or whatever they're called, you know what I mean). If the labor slows down or if she gets bored for whatever reason, she'll have something quiet to listen to while she colors or plays with toys or whatever.
