King’s Big Brother Bag!
I want this transition for King to be as easy as I can make it. I know that there will be hiccups, things that come up, etc. I knew I wanted to make a big brother bag for him that baby sister can “give” him when he comes up to meet her. I also wanted things to keep him occupied while he comes to visit us at the hospital. I am excited to give it to him and I am excited to share with you what we put in there to give him TODAY when he comes to meet baby sister!
I started making a list of things that he had been asking for when he saw them places and would order them on Amazon when we would get home to go in his bag. He is obsessed with all things Paw Patrol right now and has been wanting a Sky helicopter so I snagged that first. It is something that he can add to his Paw Patrol toys and it doesn’t make noise or anything for at the hospital.
I think my favorite thing that I snagged him is this digital camera. It was a little bit more than I wanted to spend, but was completely worth every penny I’m hoping! It plugs into the computer so he can take the pictures off of the camera. It also has video and selfie mode that he can swap back and forth on. I am hoping that when I need a second to change the baby or other things that I can tell him that I need him to record it or take a picture of it and it will help occupy him for a little bit.
I added in there Water WOW books that are clean to play with, coloring books, sticker books, color wonder pages, and his favorite treats & juice drink. When thinking of what to put in the bag I wanted things that didn’t make a mess, were new and exciting to him, and that would entertain him for awhile. I did lots of smaller things vs one big expensive thing so that way it will hopefully help to keep his attention span longer.
I will keep you updated on how it goes! I can’t believe that we are having baby sister today!! XX
