My two girls, Aoibhin (aged 7) and Eanna (aged 5), have been asking for a baby brother or sister for a number of years now (in fact, last year Eanna decided to tell her class I was anyway… if you wish hard enough I suppose!!) So I knew they would be very happy, but I guess we were a little nervous too, just in case anything happened.
We decided to tell them after the 12 week scan, so we sat them both down on the sofa and told them of the new addition to the family…. There were tears aplenty and equal amounts of excitement. My belly has never been kissed so much before. I must admit, I am loving the attention.
Here is the video we took when we were telling the girls, CAUTION; you might need ear plugs for this!!
