Big Brother was the one who told me "Mama, you have a baby in your belly" in January 2011. I hadn't even taken a pregnancy test yet and, lo and behold, he was definitely right. He was also pretty insistent that the baby was a 'boy' from early on which helped us decide very early on a boy name - before we had even seen the ultra sound. Big Brother was pretty curious all throughout my pregnancy, asking lots of questions and giving my growing belly lots of hugs and kisses. He would often talk to his baby brother through my tummy, letting him know how loved he was already. While I was hopeful that he would graciously accept Little Brother into our family, I wasn't sure how the transition to becoming a Big Brother would go for him after almost 3.5 years of being our only child.
