Since there has been a lot of questions from the boys about the new baby I thought I would include some of our recent conversations. I love how little minds think!
Kolbe: How does the baby come out?
Me: (slight hesitation)
K: Your belly will just open up and then you press a button and it will go back together.
Ethan: What’s in your belly?
Me: You know, a baby.
Kolbe frustrated that some of his clothes are getting too small.
Me: It’s a good thing buddy, it means you are growing.
K: Well, we’ll see.
E: Will the baby have diapers on when it comes out?
Me: No, the baby won’t have diapers on right away. We will have to buy some.
E: (In a squeaky, high pitched voice) And then it will wear little, little pajamas!
One of my sister in-law’s is due with a baby in November.
K: You and Aunt Jess are in a belly race, I think you will win.
Me: No, she is going to have her baby first.
K: (Comes and touches my belly) No, I think your belly bump is bigger and probably winning.
Me: Goodnight Ethan, I love you.
E: Goodnight belly!
Me: What do you think we should name the baby?
K: Pepper-Rhubarb. That’s a good name.
