Gamma and Gampa (Ian's parents) had previously made plans to be here during Talia's birth (well, that was when we thought she was going to be born on schedule). So, when she decided to arrive 2 weeks earlier than the planned c-section, Gamma and Gampa still came to visit and help with the boys.
It was a huge help to have them both here. Gampa is a super handy-man and was busy helping with any and every household chore I couldn't do myself and Gamma kept the boys entertained picking out things to give to the kids for Samaritan's Purse and all sorts of activities. They took the boys to school each day and cleaned and cooked for our household while Ian and I focused on Talia and just getting caught up on some much needed sleep!
We were so grateful for their visit and Talia was spoiled with new outfits galore and all the hugs and kisses anyone could ask for. I don't think she was put down for more than a few minutes at a time. Someone always wanted to hold her! :)
During their visit, I attempted to get some family pictures taken in the back yard. Here are a few of the pictures from the session with the grandkiddos.
The boys did a good job with Gamma and Gampa.
It was a fun tradition to have story time right before bed each night and when Gamma and Gampa were in town they were requested to be the guest readers every night!
Ian and I even got a date night! It was such a wonderful blessing to be able to get out and just have fun together. We putzed around at Buffalo Exchange downtown and headed out for dinner and a movie at the Alamo Drafthouse. It was great to be together just the two of us and remember how much we just love being together.
