A New Sibling

With Baby #2 due to arrive in just a few months, my husband and I have been busy trying to prepare our firstborn for all the changes coming his way. From simply coming to terms with the idea of no longer being an only child to the process of potty training and moving from the crib to a toddler bed, we still have quite a bit that we need to accomplish!

Thankfully, author Joanna Cole has written a wonderful series of books for children designed to help little ones through these intimidating life changes! I love that her books always have a really positive perspective! Right now we are reading "I'm a Big Brother" and it has been wonderful. What things did you do to prepare your child for a new sibling? I would love to hear your ideas!
