EV is very excited, we all are because we will be welcoming a new addition to our family in early December. When we told EV that she was going to be a big sister she was amazed and very grateful, she said "thank you mama!" quite a few times. She then wanted to play the ukulele to the baby and wanted to know what songs it would like. I told her I didn't know so she decided to sing Rock-a-bye Baby. Then she got out her leapfrog laptop and played some more tunes for the baby. It's safe to say EV is going to be a very involved and helpful big sister. She sometimes even puts things away and tells me it's so the baby can't get them. This is going to be a long pregnancy!
Coincidentally at school EV and her fellow Pukekos' are investigating brains, in particular 'baby brains'. They have been studying the babies in the creche and have decided babies brains are "messy". And everyone except EV thinks that babies have a brain while in their Mummy's tummy. EV is adamant they don't have a brain until after they are born, despite lots of conversations and looking at ultrasound scans she maintains her opinion. I did ask her how the brain gets in after they baby is born, but she hasn't come up with anything yet.
EV did draw a picture of "our baby" with a brain, that's the red bit, the yellow bit is the hair.
And here's a pic of the baby. We don't know what we are having, although EV wants a sister so that's what she tells people. The baby was a bit shy for the scan but did give us this profile right at the end. Welcome to eat your heart out baby, baby.
