We then gave them a poppy seed and told them that is how big our baby was right now. We let them hold it in their hands and see how little it was. We then glued it to a piece of paper to track our babies growth over the next few weeks. It is amazing to me that something so little can be so very very loved already!
You will have to forgive the scars on Maggie's hand-which is larger than the baby, but she was healing from swim lessons:)
We have continued this tradition each week.
It is so delightful to share the fun of our baby with the girls. The last time I went through a pregnancy, Annabelle would not even talk about the baby. This time, they are shopping for the baby-playing with the baby in my tummy, and they both talk about the baby all the time. I LOVE it so much and cant wait to see how much they enjoy the baby in the house. I also cant believe how fast it is all going. I am sure it will start to get harder, but for now I am enjoying everything and cant wait to meet our new daughter or son :)
