    How to Help Your Firstborn Adapt to Baby

    I thought that was a great read

    Last night when I told Noah I was going to get a swing for Lucas he got so jealous. I really think he thought we meant some type of toy because once he saw it he was fine. Before that as soon as I mentioned it he said "I want a swing too!" I told him it was a baby swing and he replied "I want a big boy swing!" He even cried about it. I was thinking "Lord, help me!" Lol.. so I am trying to read on it and make sure I make him feel loved and like he's still and always will be part of the family.

    Mamas that have BTDT.. any suggestions?

    Aweeee!! Poor baby cakes..

    DD will be days shy of 10 years old when baby boy comes and hasn't exhibited one ounce of jealousy as of yet. My gut feeling is that she won't.. She's older and significantly more mature than others her age. Her thought process understands that baby is going to take a lot of work and being a baby - read: self dependent on mom/dad/big sister. But.. she's not a needy child. She's a little lover, to be honest.

    I feel I'm totally blessed in that regard, to be honest!! But, I may be eating my words in less than 3 months! lol..
