When Ellianna arrives I want to have something for each of our other two. I know they will each get something from my mom. That will be some type of toy. I want to get them something that is like a keepsake (not a toy that is used just a little). Any ideas?
I am going to get them matching shirts. I also think it would be cute if I got her a big sister necklace, she is really into jewelry. I will go look at etsy!
Also, we are going to be bringing her to Build a Bear to build a bear for her sister. Maybe she could build one for herself too and I could keep it until the baby is born but I am not sure she can be patient enough
I've been thinking about this, too. When. Had my youngest I put together a "big brother bag" for my oldest with a shirt, tattoos, a hat, and some other things, but he was three at the time. I'm at a loss what to do for them his time around.

I am with you on the keepsake thing, but I am not sure exactly what to do. I would like to get some piece of nice jewelry that they would like not (DD is super into jewelry), but something that they can keep and wear when they're all grown up, too. I found a charm that I love from Tiffany's that I would like to get for each of them on a sterling bracelet and engraved, but the total would be sooooooooooooo expensive. I really want to do it, but the part of me that is even still remotely reasonable says it would be nuts to spend that kind of money. The sentimental side of me really wants to say, the heck with it, and spend the money. With older boys, I have no ideas...
