Mommy's Helpers

We've been happily overwhelmed with the wonderful help that has come into our home since Olivia was born. Here are some of the highlights.

First, Grandma & Grandpa M* came ... and if you'll recall, all in the nick of time (within an hour of when we were at the hospital in labor).

All of us at R*
No offense to my vegetarian friends. But really, we didn't make it to the top of the food chain for nothing.

And my favorite
Thanks, Dwight & Ruth for EVERYTHING!

Then, John & Eli E* showed up and saved the day and within an hour of when G-ma & G-pa M* were leaving - I'm not kidding.
To all that know John: He DOES have a very nice, bearable, non- saracsitc/obnoxious/smart-aleck side to him.

We miss them all terribly. I can't thank them enough for everything they did for us: the food, the sleep, the endless entertainment. I have now had a week and a half to try motherhood to three on my own. In a few days, Grandma & Grandpa H* will show up. They haven't seen us for two years. Is that so weird? - and sad? I'm almost nervous for it. Now that is weird.
