We then headed out to the Lake house to spend some time with the Wilkes. Luckily they had already eaten their Thanksgiving meal so we did not have Thanksgiving food for the 3rd time. We spend the rest of the weekend at the Wilkes and Momo joined us out at the lake on Friday. Blythe is not a “hold me baby,” so wed., thurs. and Fri. were intense for her as everyone wanted to hold her and play with her and she was not getting “Blythe time.” By Saturday she was getting used to all the new faces and the amount of people had dwindled down so she was becoming more of her normal smiling, giggling self.
Jason had mentioned to me that he wanted to go out on a date while we were home for the holidays. I told him that I didn’t want to be gone for bedtime, but we could do something during the day. Since we had already watched several movies we decided to go shopping instead of seeing a movie. Blythe was in great hands, with 2 set of grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. so I was not worried about her, but I do have to admit the tears were flowing as we left the driveway. I was saying to Jason “this is just like going to work this shouldn’t be a big deal, but I guess it was the first time we were choosing to leave her instead of having to leave her.” Once we got on our way we were fine, but leaving was a tear jerker.
We headed home on Sunday afternoon and had a extra hour on our trip due to traffic, but we got home safe and sound and Blythe was very excited to be on her lamb skin and see her best friend, the fan!
