Last week, my in laws came to visit from Louisiana and were such a huge help. I went a whole week without washing bottles or doing the dishes, and I so appreciated the extra sets of hands around here. The last time they saw their grandkids was when we surprised them by flying to Louisiana on Memorial Day weekend (and my mother in law was so shocked she sobbed and sobbed!)
Needless to say, they love their grandbabies and now that both kiddos are walking and jabbering along, they are a lot more fun to play with than the early days when we had to give them 6 bottles a day and be up at all hours of the night. Even my mother in law commented on how much easier things are than they were in the beginning and boy is that the truth.
Perhaps the best part of the whole trip is that I took a completely impromptu nap one afternoon. I can’t ever nap anymore, but I was so exhausted and writing in my room and all of a sudden zzzzzz. I can’t remember the last time I took a break like that.
Needless to say we love having visitors here and I know the Beans loved snuggling with their grandparents.
Here are some pictures of each one of the kiddos with their grandad and their grandmother (“Milly”).
