Big Brother in Training

We are trying to prepare MB for the arrival of his baby sister. I really don't think he comprehends it. HeRoos and I were watching the baby move and MB came over to look at my bare stomach. We taught him to pat it gently. Before we knew what was happening, he pulled up HeRoos' shirt and started patting his stomach too. He still does that with both of our tummies. Like I said, he is clueless.

Much to HeRoos' disapproval, I bought MB a doll and a toy bottle. I am trying to teach him what a baby is and that he needs to be nice and soft. The doll holds his interest for about two seconds.

But he loves the toy bottle.

And playing with his old baby toys.

And destroying his little sister's room.

I hope and pray that MB will be a good brother and that the two of them will get along well. His world is about to change forever.

He is sooo cute! I can't believe how big he is now. I love how he is intrigued with the bottle. I am sure that he will be the BEST big brother ever.

He will. When I was pregnant with Jace, Ethan would come up to me and hit me in the belly (he was 4, so no damage could be done) and then say I am the baby. But when Jace got here, he constantly wanted to hold him, and feed him. He was a great brother.
