Nana Saves the Day

My mom came in town this week to make me stay off my feet. She was AWESOME! I don't think I have changed any diapers this week. Emily was her little buddy and would call her name out when she woke up each day. How cute!!

Nana took her outside to play every day.
Nana trimmed her bangs.

Nana colored with her.

They read stories together.

And we got ready for the baby!!!!! Nana down all the baby stuff from attic, bought an outfit to bring the baby home in, got some baskets and organized everything and cleaned the house. Thanks Mom!

So I wonder if Emily is going to share any of the baby stuff with Sarah??? She has been putting her baby dolls in the seat and covering them with tons of blankets. And she likes to sit in the baby seat and lay on the baby mat... or both at the same time as below. Luckily, we went back to the doctor on Friday and he said there was no change. Good News! This doctor wasn't as strict about staying off my feet. He said to "lounge whenever you can." However today I think I did a little too much nesting and will take it easy tomorrow and stay home from church. My next appointment is on Tuesday, so we will see how things go. This could turn into a very long waiting game!!!

What an amazing mom you have! I was on bed rest with Ethan at about 6 months along. It was the longest time in my life! I know what you're going through. It will all be over soon and you'll have another sweet little girl!

I love the pictures. My favorites are of mom and Emily outside and the one of mom reading her a book. Emily's facial expression is great.

Hanging out with Emily all day, every day was heaven for me. I think she is going to be a great sister. Well, if Little Miss Sarah comes, we are ready.

Emily is getting so big. What a cutie! I am so glad you have your mom to help you out. I think having a two year old and being that pregnant is the pits...just speaking from experience. And I was never on bed rest so that definitely must put an even harder spin on things. Take care!

Well, today is Tuesday and I'm anxious to hear about the Dr. appointment. How did it go?

It's so nice to have family nearby. You can tell your mom really enjoyed being there with Emily, who will be a great big sister, I'm sure. Her independence will start showing more when she can do things for mommy and baby Sarah.

Oh, and a big hello goes out to Jane and Tom.

Ok, Emily is seriously the cutest little girl!! I'm sure Sarah will be too (great name, btw). That's so nice that your mom was here to help. Good luck!! = )
