Getting ready for baby

I've been trying to get the kids used to the idea of having a baby around. Nicole has her dolls (and Tyler plays with them when she's not looking) so we practice with them. We talk about giving the baby bottles, being quiet so that babies can sleep, being soft and gentle with babies, etc. For my birthday I got a new rocker for the nursery. I am sure I'll be spending a lot of time in that chair when the baby comes. Before the chair got here, Nicole decided to use our old rocker one last time. I walked in the nursery and found her like this with her baby:

She was rocking and singing to the baby and giving her some water. It was so sweet! Tyler's preschool teacher had her baby yesterday, so Tyler says that when she comes home from the hospital, it will be my turn. I still have 43 days to go, but it will be my turn soon enough. :-)
