The past week has been blissful since Angel has been home.  We welcomed her back on Tuesday evening with a party in her honor.  I guess that she thought it was her birthday since everyone had gathered; there was food, presents, and balloons.  She requested that we sing happy birthday and that she blow out a candle, which we did and she did 3 times!  She loved her new room and was very excited to play with her toys both old and new.  It was like Christmas morning for her.  Everyday has been wonderful, and she has been an absolute delight!  We have stayed busy having something to do every day.  I have gotten more hugs and kisses than I can count.  I have heard “I lob you” many times and yesterday when I was putting on sunscreen before we went to the pool she patted my head and said, “AWWW you so precious”.  Things like that make my heart leap with joy!  Since she has been home I have learned that the fire hydrant outside is for doggies and the reason why you have to be quite in church is because Jesus is sleeping.

I was a bit worried about her return and how it was going to affect both of us, wondering how we would respond to each other.  Everyone told me that things would be just fine and I am happy to say they are.  It is like she never even left.  The only adjustment for me is that I have an early wake up call almost every morning.  She still request Cheerio’s and milk and lies in the bed while I get ready for work like she is a princess, which of course to me, she is.  

I mentioned in my last post that I redid her room.  When I did I left the glider in there not sure if she would want me to rock her to sleep or not.  Perhaps, she out grew that while she was gone.  I am happy to say that she has not out grown it, and I have rocked her every night.  I love that time to sit, hold her, and listen to her say her prayers.  Even though she is not a little baby anymore and her legs dangle off to the side, I relish this time and hope I can do this for at least 1 more year or 10. 

So now that she is home things are back to normal and for me almost perfect.  The only thing I have to complain about in regards to her is that she still wants to drink the bathtub water, and I just don’t care anymore.  You have to pick your battles and this one is one I am going to let go.  It still grosses me out, but it hasn’t hurt her yet, so bottoms up! 

On a somewhat different note, tomorrow will be 3 years ago that I found out that I was pregnant.  3 years ago my life changed forever, in the BEST possible way.
