Yep, you read that right! Maryam is going to be a big sister! I'm 14 weeks pregnant and due October 30. Of course Maryam has no idea what that means. Here's how the conversation went:
Mommy: "Maryam, you know how Ian is Anna's big brother and Anna is Ian's little sister? Or how Trip and Paddy and Collin are all brothers?" Maryam: nods Mommy: "Well, you're going to have a little sister or brother soon. You're going to be a big sister." Maryam: "OK." Mommy: "Mommy is growing a baby in her tummy. (rubs belly) Mommy's belly is going to get really big as the baby grows." Maryam: (with eyes wide) "Wow, OK." (runs after a ball)
