Her world is being treatned by this new baby, even though she is happy to be having it, treat her special, take her for special things, that are only you and her. My mom when my she was having me, my dad, mom and brother would go out for ice cream and just sit and talk, while I was being taken care of. So, just give her the time and space she needs. Things will be better, when the baby comes, and when she's a little older.

she is the baby of the family and may be insecure that the baby may take her spotlight. Maybe focus on the job she will have as a good big sister and the things she can teach the baby. But a two year old is only going to be so receptive.

i think that is pretty normal of her to be doing that. all you can do is just make sure you have time to snuggle with her and spend with her doing what she likes to do.
