We were so lucky to have my mama come stay with us after Ellie was born. She was a life saver! We were completely pampered all week long. She made us breakfast, lunch, dinner, salads, and dessert, vacuumed the house, swept the floors, washed the dishes, scrubbed the bathroom till it sparkled, made our beds, cuddles with little E, took out the trash, watched endless hours of Gilmore Girls and Everybody Loves Raymond, hit up some awesome sales, let me nap every day, calmed the crying, hiccupping babe, calmed the crying crazy postpartum lady, *babysat while we went on a date, and so much more! I don’t think I could have handled that first week without her. To say we were sad when she left is a major understatement. (I’ve already got a trip planned to St. George! :) So lucky to have such an amazing, talented, wonderful mom and gramma! I love you mom!

*Apparently we’re pathetic and old, our date lasted forty minutes. It consisted of going to Costco for gelato (heavenly), then to Target to pick up some soap and such. We were home before nine and drop dead tired! What the heck!? E didn’t even make a peep while we were gone. Don’t worry mom, we’ll make it longer next time. ;)
