Meme Time

My mom is awesome! She came for 17 days to help us when Abbott was born. When Aidan was born she was here to help us figure out what to do and make sure we were fed and had clean laundry. We were just trying to figure out how to be parents then. With Asher, she was so helpful with that stuff too, but was also a great playmate to Aidan during the transition to big brotherhood. This time the kids had the BEST time with their super energized playmate - Meme. They spent literally hours on the trampoline, had the best bathtimes, and just loved hanging out with their Meme. We were still taken care off with lots of sushi to eat, lots of cuddles for Asher, many diaper changes, and fun times with Mom. We so appreciate you using your vacation time to spend it with us and to help us immensely with all 3 kiddos. They loved playing with you. Thanks Momma!!We took literally hundreds of pictures this past month, so here are some of the best with the kids and their Meme. And yes - they are out of order.... :)

I love you Momma!!

SO happy their Meme is here!!!!

Our last picture before Meme headed out. She had hidden "goodbye" packages in the house that the kids weren't allowed to open until she left, which made for a whole lot less tears from everyone.

Me and my momma. I love you!

Jake and Mom.

Asher told us she was blinking, which means winking, in this picture. :)
