Then they got to choose from oodles of stickers and markers and confetti to make a card for the new baby’s bassinet.
Lucky, who is now rooting for a girl for the first time since the beginning of my pregnancy, glued his picture and gave me very detailed instructions on what to write on the card. He wanted to remind the baby how much fun he and Ace are and how much the baby is going to love them.
I finally put together sibling kits for them too. I made little tags that say “Biggest Brother and Big Brother” and filled them with goodies to keep them busy while they are waiting for their new brother or sister. Luckily, my mom is flying in this week and will keep them busy. They love their Yiayia!
I filled them with things like mini coloring/activity books, crayons, a lollipop, coin purses with change for the vending machines, bubbles (they’ll be outside feeding the ducks while they wait), flashlights, big brother books, a big brother t-shirt and their cameras. I love the idea of them taking photos of their idea of how the day played out. I’m going to develop them and put them in little albums for their keepsake boxes.
I also found some fun Lego kits at TJ Maxx for $4.99. The boys will go home to spend a special night alone with Baba and I figured this will give them something fun to do together. So…now all we’re doing is waiting anxiously for the big day to arrive! I’m so excited!
