Visit from Grandma Jo (and Grandpa too)

I love this picture of Eddie with Grandma Jo. I think it sums up the weekend. Eddie loved spending time with his Grandma and Grandpa. Uncas and I also enjoyed the much needed break after a long, tough week (that's for another post).

My mom spent a lot of time holding Eddie, feeding Eddie, putting Eddie to sleep, changing him, comforting him, and playing with him - it was great! She even got up and did the middle of the night feedings, so the hubby and I could get some extra sleep. We can't thank her enough!

Because she spent much time with the baby, Uncas and I were able to do other things. Uncas worked on his boat and motors and I baked. I made a homemade coffee cake for Saturday morning and then a fresh rhubarb pie with rhubarb from the Richfield Farmer's Market. Oh it was a tasty weekend.

The last time my parents were here, I was still recovering from labor and they did so much around the house to help us out. This time it was nice to actually do stuff for them while they were here.  And next month Eddie will be traveling down to their house for the first time!  We can't wait!
