Mommy, where do babies come from?

You know that question isn't really as scary as some people make it seem. Particularly when it is proceeded by an exchange like this:

*Sophia: I think it looks like a baby sister.
Ethan: No, it's a baby brother.
Sophia: It's a baby sister!
Ethan: Baby brother!
Sophia: Baby sister!
Ethan: Baby brother!
Sophia: Baby sister!

They went on like that for a couple of minutes in the doctor's office yesterday as they looked at an ultrasound picture of the latest baby Pierce. Hubby and I had a good laugh over their argument. This morning Sophia asked if we could go to the store to get a baby sister for her and a baby brother for Ethan. I told her that babies don't come from stores. That led to the question of where babies come from. It's not so complicated a question to answer and a three year old really doesn't need much in the way of details.


*Hubby notes that, "The exact quote was, 'There's no baby brother in that picture. That's a baby sister.'"
