There was something different about finding out we were expecting Baby G 2. The first time round, we were bursting to share our news with family and friends and started spreading the news straight away but this time, there was something very special about having a family secret. While Honey had no idea what was going on at first, it was so exciting to know that she would be the first person we'd tell once things became a little more visible! We also made the decision to let her break the news to our families using a series of photos! This turned out to be easier said than done with a hangry toddler making her own rules and preferring to throw or ignore the sign rather than pose with it, but I think you'll agree that the end results are super cute!
Now here we are in 2016 with due date only 6 weeks away and Honey is already talking about getting her baby brother dressed and changing his nappy, she talks to him, sings to him and helps us choose clothes and toys for him. We've read lots of books written to help toddlers get their heads round having a younger sibling which Honey really enjoys and she's also taken to poring over my Mum and Baby magazines, which is adorable! The latest 'getting ready for baby' activity is a New Baby Lotto game given to us by a friend who has recently had her second child. Honey loves matching up all the baby equipment and activities and it starts off loads of conversations about what life might be like with a new baby in the house!
