My 3 year old and the baby

Since Ro is very aggressive these days with everyone - love 3 - we have really been trying to figure out how to get him to know there is a baby in my belly. I am showing, so we have tried simply saying that there is baby in there, but no comprende

Well today I was watching the u/s video and he was watching with me. He knew it was a baby and I told him that that baby was in my tummy. He then seemed to get it and it was quite cute.

My youngest son is 2 and named Quinn. Ro associates babies with Quinn, as he is the baby of the house. Ro just came up to me and said "A baby Quinny in your belly." It was really cute. He then patten the belly and was gentle.

Aww. DD has watched birthing videos, she really enjoys them! So she understands that there's a baby in there and where it's coming out and that my belly is going to get bigger.

My 14 year knows...LOL! The 2 little ones - no. They just have never been faced with it. They both have special needs, as well, so I think that they are just not calm enough to really get at 2 and 3 that mommy has another person in her tummy. They see babies in stores, but I one of the few people in our circle with very small children. Most are their ages or older. No one else is having babies...LOL!

I think as I grow and they feel kicks, they will sort of get it.
