The kids are also both pretty darn excited too. I've finally gotten Zeke to accept the idea that he may in fact have a little sister instead of the little brother he's hoping for. I can't say he's completely on board...but he's more accepting than he was which is a huge blessing. I honestly don't think Ellie cares either way if it's a brother or sister. She's been talking to the baby and calling him or her a "poo poo head" often...which is not so much of a blessing! As my Aunt said, I'll definitely have to involve her with the baby so she doesn't think he or she is here to replace her. Zeke was pretty good about that when Ellie came around. He didn't have much jealousy really - he just kept wanting to know when she would be big enough to play!
And speaking of all things baby, I was recently a guest on The Mom's Roundtable on Mom Talk Radio where the subject was "Introducing a New Baby to the Family." If you're interested, you can listen to it here by selecting the show from 9/2/2012.
