Can you tell her when the leaves start turning colors is when he’s going to say hello to you, until then you can talk to him and write/draw him things?  Maybe involve her in some ongoing activity like making a scrap book or making him a card everyday?

I am not sure I would give her excuses, but keep repeating the truth. Simply tell her that “baby Kins has to stay in the belly until this day to make sure baby is healthy enough to play with you”

 I would get a calender that you can cross off each day until the Due Date together. Make it part of the day routine she can look forward to. Like an advent calender. It will help her understand better.

But that is very adorable! A cute story.

@figgnewton:  Awww, that’s so cute!

You could make a chart with the size of her growing sister using household objects (i.e. Kins is the size of a peanut now, the size of an avocado, the size of a grapefruit and so on).  You can help her compare these items to a life size infant doll and explain that she has to grow in your tummy some more before she is ready to play.

I think an advent-calendar type thing is a good idea.

Also, when you can feel baby kicks from the outside, that might entertain her a bit 🙂 so she can feel like she is “playing” with the baby. Perhaps have her do some crafts to make things for the baby, or pick books for you to read to both of them, etc. So cute 🙂
