.You Lied To Me!.

Brooklyn came out of the restroom carrying a package of my prenatal vitamins. She comes up to me and questions me as to what they are.
I respond "They are vitamins that help make the baby in my belly grow bigger."
She immediately gets angry, stomps out of the room and slams them down on the nearest table. She turns back to me and says "You lied to me! You said the baby was growing by itself in your tummy!"
I had to try not to giggle at her, as I could tell she was very serious about this. So instead, I sat her down next to me and told her that the baby is growing on it's on. The vitamins just help make him stronger and healthier.
I am glad she accepted that answer and the conversation didn't need to continue any farther.

.Baby Brother.

Brookie is VERY excited for her baby brother to join our little family.
She gives him kisses AT LEAST once a day.
She also reminds me almost daily how big my belly is getting.

Yesterday I had to take my glucose test. Knowing that I would have to be there for at least an hour and also get my blood drawn, I asked Aaron's sister Katie to watch the girls. 
As we were getting ready to leave, I explained to Brookie that she would be going to Aunt Katie's while I went to the doctor that day. Her face instantly lit up and she got this HUGE grin on her face as she says "And then you are going to have the baby?!" It was the most adorable thing ever. Sadly, I had to explain to her that was still a few months away.

.Spring Break.

I feel bad that I don't post about Brooklyn as often as I do Lily.

They are both quite the comical little children and I have loads of stories every day that I could post about both of them. 
The thing about that though, is that Brooklyn's funny moments aren't always ones that other people would understand. We have a lot of little inside jokes that make her crazy moments so hysterical. 

The week before last was Spring Break for our school district. Easter also happened to fall right on the tail end of Spring Break this year. It was her Dad's year to have her for Spring Break, so we didn't get to enjoy her for Easter this year. 
It was a bit of a rough week and weekend for me, since I am so used to having her home with me every night and cuddling until Aaron comes to bed. That is my special time with Brookie that we enjoy almost every night. I started to realize, while she was gone, that cuddling in my bed at night is probably going to be changing to a rare occurrence once Baby Boy arrives. Which makes me sad, since I know how much she enjoys that time every night and is always a bit let down when Aaron comes to bed at the same time as us and she has to go straight to her bed. 
I haven't had to worry too much about Lily being jealous of mine and Brookie's little time together every night. Lily isn't much into cuddling and never really has been. She likes her own space and will just talk your ear off if you let her into bed with you most nights.

Needless to say, I am VERY happy to have my Brookie back home! I have missed having her around all the time and I know Lily missed her playmate.
