My 3 1/2 y/o son has achondroplasia dwarfism AND I am 22 weeks pregnant with his little sister. I am curious how him being the older brother to a full sized child will be when they are older

Completely agree with Michelle. Just treat the the same/equally and they should be fine. They'll grow up not knowing anything else. There will probably be questions on why the child with dwarfism is *different*, but just answer them honestly and in an age appropriate way. it'll be fine :)

To them it will be normal. It will only be a problem if you make it one.
