Definitely. I'll let them pick out something they want to give the baby and the baby will be giving them something in return.

I'm honestly stumped as to what to get them, though. I was thinking perhaps a new game or movie .. something that can keep their attention! I'm going to be needing all the help I can get while we're in the adjusting period!! lol

But, I also was thinking perhaps something a little more personal. But, honestly, I'm not sure if they'd really appreciate "personal" as much. So, I don't know yet. Still looking for ideas!

Emily won't be old enough to understand, so probably not. I'll keep an eye out for ideas for you all too!

I have seen some super cute big brother shirts, which i will def get, but i really want jake to get a gift from the baby. Jake and steve are going to go buy something for the baby before they come to visit for the first time and i would love to have something he really wants to give back. His preschool teacher advised to get something he has been after for a while and tell him that the baby had heard him talking about it in my belly and really wanted to get it for him to say thanks for all the help he gave mommy while he/she was getting ready to be born.

But i have no idea what to get. the only things he has been talking about are the things he is asking santa for!

What about a disposable camera or a cheap digital so that he can help take pictures of the baby? It'll help him be involved too!
