Dan's mom Marilynn, or "Mammy" to the kids, came out to visit us and help with Charlotte's arrival. We had so much fun having her around. The kids love watching movies and eating popcorn with her (a staple food at Mammy's house). Dan and I even got to go out on a date. While she was here she bought an early birthday gift for the kids...their very own swingset!! They were so excited and have been on it every day since then.
Fortunately Charlotte arrived just before Marilynn had to go home. We were so glad to have her there to stay with the kids and to help them through the always difficult transition of having mom and dad gone and then bringing a new baby home. Here is Davie checking out the baby when Marilynn brought them to visit us at the hospital.
Here is Marilynn and her newest grandchild. Hooray for grandmas!! Thanks so much for all of your help...we couldn't have done it without you. She left us lots of meals in the freezer, and happy kids at home.
I have to also include a big thank you to the Taylors and Leah for watching the kids that last night and day before we got home from the hospital. Thanks guys!! What would we do without fabulous neighbors?!?
