In an effort to help NHL to try to understand the reality of how life is going to change when his little brother is born, we signed up for a Sibling Class at our local hospital. This class is specifically for kids that are 2-5. During the time they are asked to bring a doll or special stuffed friend. We took this opportunity last night to give NHL his very own baby boy doll. His reaction was really cute. He finally named his baby “Harry” thanks to Harry and the Bucket Full of Dinosaurs. Last night we tucked both boys into NHL’s bed and told NHL to take care of his baby. This morning they woke up and came into our bed. NHL promptly asked for his baby’s bottle to feed him since he was hungry. I know things won’t go quite as smoothly with the real baby, but it’s a start. Below are some photos from last night. I will update later after the hospital class and tour.
