Baby Brother



Gisèle has understood for a while now that there is a baby (Baby Brother) in Mama's tummy. I explained that he was growing in Mama's tummy, but had to stay there until he was big enough to come out. One day a couple weeks ago he started kicking, and I asked her if she wanted to feel him move. She nodded, a little confused, and Jamie and I showed her how to put her hand flat on my belly. As soon as he kicked her hand, she jumped backwards with a stunned expression on her face. It took a few minutes before she asked to feel him again.

She has felt Baby Brother move a few times now, and each time she's COMPLETELY shocked. He somehow knows when it's her hand on my belly - he'll always kick directly at it, even though he tends to avoid everyone else's but mine. Now that she really understands that there's a baby there, she likes to go around insisting that "Baby Brudder OUT." And then she'll smile and make the "small" motion with her hands and agree with me that he's too little right now. It's going to be fun watching them interact as he grows!

That's wonderful! How exciting to see her start to really "get it." I can't wait to see the first photos of the two sibs together. :)
