I don't want to make this a QOTW on BM&O because it doesn't apply to everyone, but I'm curious?.
How did you prepare/are you preparing the older sibling(s) for the arrival of the younger?
Bean still doesn't talk very much, but she knows the word "baby" and she seems to get it when I point to my belly and say "baby," but I don't think she understands anything about the fact the baby will be coming out of there and living with us! I have a couple of books. One is cloth and has big mommy animals where you lift the belly up and find a baby animal velcroed in that can be taken out, then the last mommy is a human mommy. The other is a toddler asking a bunch of questions about the new baby, which is supposedly meant to inspire discussion, but Bean isn't at a "discussion" point in her language development, so I don't know how much she gets out of it.
