Well, it's still raining and it's still cloudy! I love the temperature but the gloomy part and the headache sucks the big wang chung! Today is the first day in a week that I don't have anything to do but laundry, dust and clean. I may even nap later!! I don't have to get ready, no makeup, nothing!! I'm happy!
I went to the HR Hospital yesterday to get baby's heartbeat checked and as we were walking to Unit 100, the nurse from down the hall says in front of many other doctors and nurses "you're the one in the HR Times. I read the article." Then another nurse repeats what the first nurse said then the others start asking questions. I felt a bit shy about it, which as you know, shy, I AM NOT!! All I said was "yes, that is me." Great answer Krista!! It just made me laugh that they were excited to see us! Funny moment! I felt like Justin Bieber! Totally kidding. :)
We had the most amazing nurses. That HR Hospital is wonderful and quiet and they take such good care of the patients. My blood pressure was a bit elevated when we got there but they hooked me up with some drugs and it came down fairly quickly. Baby Collins was movin all over the place so getting a consistent heartbeat was difficult but they managed to get it and it sounded good, still lots of hiccups but the number was decent, so that's what makes me happy.
I have to admit that I was on fire with my comments yesterday. I was full of wit! When we got home, James even said to me that I was quite witty! I told him that I'm always witty, he just doesn't ever listen to me. Usually when I say to him "are you listening?" He will more then likely respond with "WHAT?" I love my husband!
All went well at the hospital.
Brinley's Dinner!! :))
Auntie and Uncle took care of Brinley and even fed her dinner. Ange said that she ate just as much as her kiddies. She devoured all of her food. Uncle Bob loves his little niece so much and gets worried about her and usually tries to keep the kiddies at a distance so little Brinley stays safe. He also checks her food to make sure that it's cut up into tiny bite-sized pieces. It's pretty sweet!! He protects his little niece. <3
Ange put Brinley to bed and they had some snuggle time, book time and cuddles before sleepy time. I guess Brinley cried when Ange left the room, she has such a special connection with her Auntie, always goes to Ange and wants to be loved and snuggled. I get 2 second snuggles...I'm so jealous!! ;)
I received another sweet message today from a friend. We've known each other for years, but also have not seen each other for probably 14 or so years. It was one of those messages that makes you smile and realize that it's all good.
I thought I would send you a note letting you know that I think your blog is amazing. Every post has made me cry, especially the early ones. My husband and son now know that when I am sobbing uncontrollably, I am reading your stories. I am so very proud of you! Being blessed with a baby is such a joy. Being blessed with a baby that may have DS is an honour! God believes in you and your family. That all of you can handle the challenges that it will bring. Including all the smiles, hugs, laughter and unbiased look on life that your little one will show you. Thank you for sharing your journey. My heart is full of love knowing that you have chosen life over inconvenience. Great...I'm crying again!
