It's getting closer and he's getting a little excited!
He wanted to go to the ultrasound, but was disappointed to find out she was a girl. He felt her kick once, and wasn't interested in feeling her move again. He gave his opinion on a color for her room, but hasn't wanted to help with any of the decorating.
While I wished he'd be more excited, I was okay with it. I didn't want to push anything on him, and I left his involvement entirely up to him.
DH and I did sign him up for a sibling class though, to hopefully give him some tools for coping with having a baby in the house.
It went wonderfully! SS asked lots of questions, and was very attentive to what the teacher was saying. He practiced how to hold the baby and how to diaper a baby. I even caught him practising at home a few times. I was honestly amazed at some of the questions he asked.
When we were leaving, DH asked him how he was feeling about becoming a big brother. SS usually tells everyone he's excited (it's like he knows that's what everyone wants to hear), but he'll tell us the cold hard truth. He told DH that he was feeling a little excited!
I know he'll have a range of emotions when DD gets here, and it won't always be sunshine and butterflies - but I'm happy that he was so attentive and curious during this class.
I think he'll be a great big brother!
