Ok so you are never going to believe this

So I am holding Gemma on my chest and hugging her. I haven't been able to do that in what feels like so long because of her egg issues. Anyway, I heard her making some noises but I was reading something online and didn't pay much attention. She was in a receiving blanket. I got up a few minutes later and went to put her to bed. I set her in her cage and something falls from the receiving blanket... an egg! She laid an egg while snuggling on my chest. It has a streak of blood on it :/. Poor thing. This is her second one. She laid the first on last Saturday.

The funny thing is that I was talking to her during and right before snuggle time, just telling her I love her and I know it is hard being a girl. And definitely hard making that transition from baby to big girl and I forgive her for being such a crab. She immediately calmed down to snuggle....the egg happened sometime there after lol. I think they really do understand more than we give them credit for.

What a nice story, the egg is rather big for such a small girl, isn't it?
