We had to put up her morning ribbons in the hallway so that Ada could still get out. Ada usually wakes up before her, but she also uses the bathroom at night. Ada was very good to hang back and let Rue get through her ribbons. We had a special waffle breakfast. I do feel a little bad, I didn't plan anything for her day. I wasn't feeling well still so her birthday was very low key.
We did invite our parents over to have cake and ice cream with us. I just made a pineapple upside down cake (first time doing it alone). We had pizza for dinner. Mom and dad actually came out and they brought Grandma Broderick over with them. They had dinner with us and then Keith's parents came over for dessert. It was a fun calm evening. Keith and I decided last minute to tell our parents about the baby. I've been so sick, it's only a matter of time before people around me start figuring it out and we didn't want friends and ward people to know before our parents. So as things we winding down we announced our baby news. Mom and dad were so excited! They gave me hugs and mom said she had been wondering (because of my deep breathing and other sick symptoms). Keith's parents said they were surprised we had beat Melissa. It's just nice to have it out and not have to hide. I don't like telling so early, but I'm needing a little support. Really struggling still with headaches and sickness. Overall, a great day. I didn't feel like I put as much effort as I usually do, but I did the best I could this time. I love my little Rue. She is so special and sweet. I love her little personality. Happy birthday my darling little lady. We love you so much!
