And on to the rest of what's going on...
M was able to spend about 2 1/2 weeks with his mom in Iowa and I had about 9 days. It was a special time with family and S provided much needed comfort for her grandma.
S and I flew back into Denver from Iowa, met my mom at the airport, and visited with Hannah and Noah for breakfast and a trip to the farmer's market. My mom and I bought fresh golden beets for Hannah's delicious beet, green, and bean warm salad. If you ever need a way to use your beet greens, let me know, it is delicious.
Mom and I goofing around. We spent one night figuring out the camera on my computer and took lots of hilarious pictures. Mom spent the entire week here to help me while M was with his mom. She is amazing. My child was happy and slept well and often. My house is spotless and all of the projects that I was putting off are done. We drank too much wine and ate amazing food together every night. She refused to let me do a single dish because I worked all day. I can only hope to be such a blessing to S some day!
She is trying REALLY HARD to crawl at just 5 months. She can't sit up yet and doesn't seem to want to, but she does want to move. I think we have a little independent thinker on our hands.
