I have a 18 m/o daughter and I am 2 m/o pregnant. How have you other Moms prepared your older kids for the new arrival?

I did the same thing I bought my son a book that explained and have talked to him a lot about it. Also keeping the older one involved and allowing them to help pick things out is also very helpful in ensuring that your older one does not get jealous.
