While Nana was here...

Nana informed us it was TIME to teach Sophia to ride a real bike without the training wheels. Whoops. Somehow it just hadn't occurred to us yet. Put it on the list.

She stayed a whole week. Got here on Friday when we got home from the hospital----stocked the fridge, made the dinners, got the girls ready every morning, sent them off to school, cleaned my house, kept up my laundry, took the girls on daily bike rides to the park, decorated sugar cookies, made Gingerbread houses because... we still had the kit and why not? and snuggled my darling baby boy in her spare moments. And made me feel like everything was warm and cozy and lovely and perfect, because --- well, she's my mom--- and everything's just right when she's around.

I asked her how you were doing since you had the baby, and her eyes just lit up as she dished about her new grandson.

I love moms! Just reading this makes me breathe a sigh of relief for you. I loved it when my mom came to stay with us after Leo was born. I balled like a baby when she left! haha. Congrats on your adorable baby boy. :)
