Baby talk

We began discussing Baby Plum with Little Elvis as soon as we found out I was pregnant.

He's very aware that there's a baby in my tummy. At first, he would notice my tummy, lift up my shirt and say, "Hi Baby!" then "Bye Baby!" to it very quickly.

Twice Little Elvis has seen another baby in public, and run to me to try and lift up my shirt to show off the baby in my tummy -- once in the doctor's office and once in the ladies bathroom at a museum. Guess his choice of location to expose my belly wasn't too terrible.

Recently, he's been into the concept of home. He likes to yell "Home! Home!" whenever we pull into our driveway. Now, when we talk about the baby, he likes to point to my tummy and say that the baby is home.

We've asked him a few times if he'd like a baby boy or a baby girl. Most times Little Elvis says baby boy. He's only once asked for a girl.



I hope these sweet feelings continue as my belly grows and my lap space gets depleted. Will he still be able to fit on my lap in the 3rd trimester? How can I not hold this sweet boy in my lap?

We asked my little one last night if he would like a brother or sister. He answered a car. He's starting early this one!

He sounds pretty optimistic about the whole thing. Ben took a while....now he's really lovey and kisses my tummy and says 'hi baby', but I'm a little anxious to see his reaction when grandma holds the baby...you might hear him losing it at your place!!
