Concept of a new baby

Hi, Psychotoddler gave me posting privilidges a while ago, but I got swamped with work and a class. But I want to at least start. I have two daughters, Tikvah and Ahava (now 4 and 2).

When my wife was pregnant with Ahava, and Tikvah was about 17 months old, we kept trying to get her to understand that a new baby was on the way. We'd have her rub mom's belly and would say "Baby... there's a baby in there!" Then one day I was laying on the floor, on my back, playing with Tikvah. She came over, rubbed my belly, and proudly declared, "BABY!!"

Oops, I need to cut back on the desserts!!

My parents have a photo like that when my mother was pregnant with me, and my father was "showing" almost as much.
