Joy of Joys, we get another girlie! We were a little nervous that Jilli would be upset, as she had us all convinced it was a boy. She accepted the news with an "oh, ok" and that was that. Now she's having a baby sister.
Even more fun news... my sister is having another girl at the end of June. So Leanne is due in March, me in May, and my sis in June. Oh the busy, busy grandparents.
Last night was the first time in a long time we left the girls with a babysitter. Mike and I went to a valentine's dance with some friends, which was fun, in it's own special memory kind of way. (not that there was any dancing, or even romantic music) Jilli didn't do too well with our leaving. It was really hard because she could say things like "I don't want you to leave" and "please can I come with you". Just broke our hearts!! In reality of course she was fine after a while, but the knowledge of reality and the tug of a mom's heartstrings are not related at all:). Sam (our babysitter) told us when we got home that Ali would look at Jilli (while she was still crying) and say "I think she's still crying". This morning when we asked the girls if they had fun, they said yes. and jilli added, "I cried for you. I said 'wah, wah, where did you go?' and then I ate my pizza".
Today, sadly Jilli is running a little fever, so we are going to stay home from church and watch the olympics and rest. Jilli did crawl in bed with us last night for the first time. She curled up next to me and I fell asleep again for a few minutes. She has some congestion so was having a hard time sleeping, but she laid very still and rested, and tromped happily back to her own bed when I told her it was time. It was the perfect snuggle time (I needed) to comfort her after having left her in such a sad state earlier in the evening.
