We told the boys about it, and Carson is so in love with the baby already. He will just look at me and give me a great big smile. He started being incredibly gentle with me, and giving the baby lots of hugs. He felt the baby move this morning, and is convinced that him giving hugs is what makes him start moving. He's been asking lots of questions, and I've even got the big one: "How is the baby going to get out of your tummy?" Such a hard one to answer!!
Jackson is excited too, but just wants the baby out NOW! He keeps asking when we're going to the hospital
Here is the announcement I made up to send out to our parents. It was done real quickly in my garage because it was HOT! I was sweating up a storm trying to get these images.
Congrats Steph! You look amazing! As for the question I go with C-section all day when my kids ask lol
Congratulations! Wow on having 3 boys!
As for the question, I have always been honest with my Eva about life questions like that (softening it in a way that is appropriate). I don't agree with lying or making up stuff, or being embarrassed, there's no reason to....anyway, what a neat little announcement too! (watch there is a smudge on your side between your arm & side)
Oh, this wasn't perfect by any means, and just went out to our parents
I think it's harder to tell a little boy (who doesn't have a sister) about how a baby comes out of a woman than it would be a girl who has all the parts. Especially a 5 year old. I just told him that I would go to the hospital and he would come out when it's time, and left it at that for the time being.
Congratulations Steph! I remember telling my son a watered down version of the truth. He immediately jumped to 'does that mean i came out there too' then hid under the doonas giggling and saying no, no yuck. He was only about 3 so I hadn't expected him to connect the dots so quickly.
