A small boy feels the baby kick inside his mother's tummy, hears the baby's heartbeat during a visit to the doctor, and finally gets to say hello in person after the baby is born.

Narrating the story himself, the boy shares what fascinates him: how the baby grows inside the womb, unpacking his old baby clothes, and hearing about the day he was born. When the baby arrives home at last, the boy tells how she eats and sleeps and cries, and how it takes a mother, a father, and a new big brother to make this baby feel at home.

Told in simple words and charming pictures, this book lets children know just what to expect when Mom's expecting.
