Mercy knows that Remy is very resistant to the idea of a new sibling, especially a sister. So, when she feels the baby kicking she invites him to feel it.
Mercy: “Remy, sweetie. Would you like to feel the baby kicking?”
Mercy: “You’ll be the first one, that makes you really special to her.”
Remy: “I….I’m…first to feel the baby kick? You said….her?”
Mercy: “Um…..hmmm….I did.”
Remy: “Oh wow! MOM! I felt her kick my hand. I’m going to be the best big brother ever. I’ll even play dolls with her and everything.”
Mercy auto-invited him to feel the baby, she must have known he needed the extra attention to be OK with getting a sibling.
