I never did update on what the girls' reaction was about the news they were having a baby brother. (even being asked multiple times!)
It actually wasn't that exciting. When we were all home together, I told them I found out if the baby was a boy or a girl. And Ella said very calmly, "I already know it's a boy. Uncle Mark told us."
We told a few friends during the day and our friend mark, not actually an uncle of the children, told them when he picked up his kids from the same daycare! I was pissed! But Mark isn't someone who will admit fault. In fact, when we did say something, we were told "you should of told us not to say anything." Oh, didn't realize that was a necessity! But whatever.
Ella told us she will not play with her new baby brother, but Allie informed us that she will. How nice. Heh.
Ella is also very into telling me how "giant" my belly is. Little does she know.
We did have a little conversation on the way to dinner last night.
Ella: "Broccoli makes you big and strong!"
Allie: "Ice cream too!"
Mommy: "No, too much ice cream can make you fat."
Ella: "But aren't you fat mommy?"
