Here is an update on Saturday. Jen (a friend of ours) found Munchkin’s owner, whose real name is Lucas, but we still call him Munchkin. That afternoon his owner came and picked him up. Both were very happy to be reunited! We were also very happy to have the house back to normal. Munchkin spent the night crying and wanting snuggles, he’s a big baby lol.
We took it really easy all day. We watched Pocahontas and I ate skittles, popcorn, and chocolate milk (a well balanced diet). Brielle had so much fun! She loved the movie and loved her treats, she has always loved chocolate milk, even from my first trimester. I played Brielle her music all afternoon and she spent the whole time dancing and having fun.
I made her fajitas with red peppers and onions for dinner. She didn’t react, so I’m not sure she was swallowing the amniotic fluid. She loves onions and red peppers, I guess she was napping. We watched a really funny movie while we waited for my parents to arrive and I ate Brielle’s halloween candy, specifically nerds and airheads. She loved those! I tried to eat a Reese’s and she did not like it, after I ate a couple bites I had to give the rest to David, she did not want that Reese’s.
When my parents arrived Brielle got real quiet and just listened. She is so shy, and there were so many new voices and so much commotion. Emmy and Rosie went crazy when they saw
my family. We all hung out in the living room for a while, snacked on popcorn, and talked about things. Brielle remained quiet the whole time. After my parents went to bed, my sister and I talked for a while. That was fun, we rarely see each other and it was great to catch up.
We then turned on Swan Princess and began singing the begining song together (This is my idea…). We played with Brielle and Tessa patted, wiggled, sang, and talked to my tummy. Towards the end of the song Brielle began to perk up. By the middle of the movie Brielle was moving around and listening. She was finally comfortable enough with Tessa and Zach. Silly girl! Towards the end she was doing a lot of big kicks and punches. I think she had fun tonight. I think she enjoyed the movie and interacting with Aunt Tessa. Mommy and Aunt Tessa sure had fun!
Tessa bought me a couple of books for Brielle for my birthday. The first one is titled “On the Day you were Born” and the other is titled “Wherever you go my Love Will Find You.” Brielle LOVED the book! She danced and kicked. David rubbed coconut oil into my belly as I read to her and she wiggled when he tickled her feet. She seemed very happy that it was just us three again. She is so shy and prefers to just be with her family. I love her so much.
