Get ready—a new baby is coming to your house, and there are going to be lots of changes. Mommy’s stomach will get bigger, and there won’t be as much room for you on her lap. But you can pat her tummy and feel when it moves in funny ways. The baby will sleep most of the time, and your mommy may tell you “Shhhh.” Sometimes the baby will cry—loudly. That’s just the way it says “Feed me!” or “Hold me!” or “Change my diaper.” As a big brother or sister, you can help with many things and have fun teaching the baby everything you know.
