How did you help child #1 "adjust" to the arrival of new baby?

Well, the title pretty much says it all. Our ds is our first child and he will be about 21 months old when #2 arrives (He's 19 months now.) We talk about the baby all the time but really, I don't think he understands what is going to happen!

How did you ease your older child's transition into being a big sibling? I am particularly interested in hearing stories from others whose kids have about the same age difference as mine will be. (Since I think a much younger or much older child might handle things differently, KWIM?)

Are there any good books / links on this?
