It's almost baby time, and everyone in the house is so so excited. The big kids cannot wait to meet the little baby...and Halloween time cannot come soon enough. (We told them baby is coming right around that time!)

In the past we've brought some little gifts with us to the hospital for the older kids from the new baby. Babies get so much love and attention (and rightfully so!), but sometimes it can be a hard transition for the other siblings. The two girls are already starting to get a lot more clingy and needy than usual, and I think that they know there is going to be a big change coming.

 I don't want them to feel left out or ignored when that time comes. We wanted them to feel so loved...and a few thoughtful gifts can make a big difference. It also gives them something to do while they are with us at the hospital during visits.

Here's a look at what I got the kids!

I told the kids that the baby would be coming right around fall and Halloween. I thought it would be really fun to give them some Halloween inspired books that we'll bring out each year around the season. It's something that they'll remember each season we bring the books out.

I'm also getting the girls some activity and sticker books that they can play with. They love them and it's a perfect thing for them to play with if we're preoccupied.

I got the kids all a small stuffy - a bat for Ben (they have Halloween ones out now and that's his favorite animal!), kangaroo and baby roo, and a baby llama.

Necklaces & Bows
I got the girls two Coral and Cloud necklaces - one rainbow (for our rainbow baby!) and one honeycomb style in pretty pastel colours. They love these necklaces and wear them all the time. I also got the girls a few little bows just for fun too!

Other Goodies
I bought a few mesh bags for sand toys over the summer, but they ended up being too small for what I originally wanted them for. But they're perfect little totes for putting the kids little gifts in! We got the kids a few other small items that we thought they'd like. We got Ben a new deck of cards, chewing gum (his fave!) and some little treats for him to snack on. For the girls, we got some new chapstick, and some little chocolate treats as well.

I think the most important thing is to remember that these little gifts (no matter how big or small) just shows them that as we've been waiting for baby's arrival for so many months...we still think of them all the time and want to show them how much we care about them too.
