Plans for Lachlan

I'm trying to get T ready for the idea that there's going to be a baby in the house soon. At this point, daily he points to his belly and says, "I got Lachlan; you got Bruce."

I've been receiving pamphlets, coupons, etc. in the mail. The other day, I received something that had a baby's picture on the front that looked just like a Hess baby. I showed this to T and told him that we were going to have one of those in our house. Don't know if it clicked, but what has followed since that discussion makes me think it did.

Yesterday, after dropping Q off at the high school in the morning, we drove past the soccer fields. T said, "We go play soccer. I teach Lachlan." He continued by talking about shin guards and cleats and how Lachlan was going to kick it back to him. Suddenly I realized that I sometimes comment about her kicking me, and he's felt her do it, so he's aware that she's practicing to play soccer with him.

Later in the day yesterday, T did something. I can't remember what exactly--spilled or something. He quickly told me that "Lachlan did it." He said she kicked it.

He's a funny little kid. I'm glad he's anticipating this little sister, but I'm sure he has no idea what he's in for.

Kathryn has been blamed for spills and toys on the floor at our house lately. Only once do I remember Nathan blaming her for something before she came-which i found endearing. He usually picks his favorite friends to blame! I love that boy!

Aw, but the kicking thing and looking forward to soccer is so cute! Not that she'll be functional in soccer for years yet; still, cute.
