We weren't financially set up to do this before. I think it'd be nice to do, especially since both kids are going to be older than DD was when her brother was born.

 

What are you getting for you/the baby to give to your current LOs?

DD has been wanting a stuffed pony forever, so that's what the baby is "getting" for her. :)  Easy, peasy, and DD will just love it!

Krista, where did you find the pattern for the dolls?

Hadn't really thought of this since my kids are both old enough to know the baby isn't really giving them anything... BUT. They know their levels of responsibility will increase and have already been stepping up quite a bit to help me out, as dh is rarely home. It would be nice to give them something recognizing their hard work and helpful attitudes... something signifying that they are showing a lot of supportive and mature growth, and we have seen it and appreciated it, amidst so much change and uproar in their lives (moving, maybe a couple of times by the time the baby is here, plus a new baby, missing extended family that is no longer close by, etc). Have to think about that.


It's such a relief to finally trust yourself.

DS will only be 21-22mo when this LO is due so I think any new toys would be a great distraction and reward/celebration for becoming a brother.  I recently found some 1/2 price Thomas sets and trains and since he is obsessed with everything Thomas (exposure from an older friend), I think he will be thrilled.  He also has a balance bike from xmas that we haven't given him yet since the weather has been bad so I think we will break that out too.
