Our hospital offers a Sibling's Class so that the "big brothers and big sisters to be" can get an idea of how life will change once a new baby comes into their lives. I wasn't going to do it, but in the end changed my mind after thinking it wouldn't be a bad idea. (At least they can't blame me years from now that I didn't prepare them!)
Then they got the chance to practice diapering their dolls.
They both loved this part and took it sooooo seriously. Good! Because anytime they want to step in with this new little one is fine by me!
Andy slept on a cot for 4 nights last time and now there is a nice built in couch/window seat for him. He's excited about that.
I had a C-Section with the girls, but only because Katie was breech and she was first. So I am going for a VBAC this time and my OB is all for it. I told him that if it looks like things aren't going well and I need to have another C to just wheel me on in. I want to try for the VBAC, but I'm not being stupid about it.
Another new thing with this one is that we are using cloth diapers. But that's a whole 'nother post!
