Anyway, I'm sure it is just the pregnancy, but I am so sad for Ruthie! She was with Hooie more than she was with anyone! When I see his picture, I feel like I've lost one of my kids. Yes, I'm sure it is the pregnancy.
Ruthie always loved to turn Hooie upsidedown and rub her face with his tail. So his bum was always in her face. :) We told her that a new Hooie was coming in the mail, but he's still not here yet. I spent all day figuring out what BRAND he was (since the tag was all rubbed off) and then trying to find a replacement Hooie. The best I could do is one that looked like Hooie's crazy uncle or cousin or something, but he's on the way!
When I showed Ruthie the picture of "New Hooie," she wasn't quite sure at first, but now that she knows another Hooie is coming, I think she's o.k. with the whole thing. She keeps saying, "Hooie, come back!" and "I'm sad be-tuz Hooie is wost." And of course we pray for him to come home every night. Funny how all of these little thing affect us, but they do! Especially if you're pregnant.
