I had not even thought of this. I like the idea. If I were to do this I would probably pick out a sweet stuffed animal for DD. She loves stuffed animals.
Would your son like something like that? Or does he have a favorite character? Maybe a stuffed movie character?
LO will be giving DS a new train or two (DS loves all the Thomas trains).
In turn, DS will be picking something out for LO....like a lovey or a small stuff animal or blanket.
I'll have them both packed in the hospital bag so that when DS comes to meet the new baby I've got them ready to go and the Grandparents won't have to remember one more thing.
DH and I married 8 years.
Mom of three, stepmom of one.
mel689:DS is obsessed with cars right now, so probably a few Matchbox cars or a stuffed animal.
This is kind of what I had in mind for Wyatt. (He'll be 20 months old as well)
My friend had done this with her son and the new baby.
I am probably going to have ds go shopping with me and pick something out for the new baby. I'll let it be whatever he wants to get him (even if it is a transformer or something).
I will also pick something up for ds that will be from the baby. I'll bring it to the hospital and have the baby "give it to ds". Ds will be over 4.5 years old so I think he will know that it isn't reallt from the baby, but who turns down a gift??
