Default For Those With Older Kids

For those of you that already have kids, or this is a third, did you, or are you planning on buying a gift for the older child from the baby? I can't remember if I asked this before, if I did, I don't remember the answers, but I was thinking that I should get something for B from the baby and for the baby from Ben, maybe matching stuffed animals from Build a Bear or something? I dunno...anyway, looking for ideas!

You know, I had planned on doing that for Ava when Keller was born, but just never did. She was so excited about the baby anyway that it didn't matter to her though! She thought of him as a new toy.

I'm not sure if Keller will even really "get it" if I do it this time though, so I haven't decided yet. Hmmm....definitely something to think about. Maybe I'll at least pick up a couple things for each of the kids so that if people are visiting and bring gifts for the babies, I'll have something on hand for them too.

i had something at the hospital for C when he came to see me-- it was in my bag ready to go-- so that was nice-- I think it was a book about being a big brother and a matching shirt to one I got for Brennan...

I'll do something similar this time too

I think I will buy a gift for Ava from me and dh. Not necessarily a gift for the baby to give to Ava. I have a book about welcoming your second baby, and it said something to the effect that it can be confusing for a child if the baby "gives" them a gift, almost like, how did the baby get the gift? I dunno, whatever, but I think the gift will most likely just be from us, maybe a big sister shirt or something, or maybe a new doll.
