So this morning Abby Kate and I were sitting at the table eating our breakfast. Our conversation:
AK: Can I say hi to baby, Mommy?
Me: Sure (thinking she was talking about her doll baby sitting on the table, I held it out to her)
AK: No, Mommy... I say hi to baby in your belly.
Me: Oh, well OK (surprised at her request). Sure you can! (I get up and let her touch and hug my belly) That's such a sweet girl, Abby Kate. You're a good big sister.
AK: Can I hold the baby, Mommy?
Me: Well, you can't hold it right now, but when the baby comes out, then you can.
AK: When the baby falls out?
Me: Um, right. But we'll catch the baby. It won't fall.
AK: Baby will fall out? And then we'll catch baby? We will catch baby with a net? (her face as serious as can be)
Me: Uhhh... OK, sure. With a net. :)
