I Want my Mommy!!!!

My mom came out to be with us for the birth (and after) of Alice. She came out on the 4th, I ended up having Alice on the 7th, and she went home on the 20th. That might sound like a lot of time, but it flew by. She was AMAZING. My house actually was clean and my kids taken care of. Our bellies stayed full of delicious food. I got naps and adult conversation. Also, a word game partner (just you wait- I will have a scrabble comeback.) After she left, I guess we started "real life". I think I'd rather wait for that. It's been getting harder and harder. I miss my mom so much.

What a happy and wonderful mom. I hope to be like her one day.

This was on our way to the airport. I wanted one last picture and this is the face she gave the camera. Classic and awesome.
Loving sweet Alice.

We tried to go to a pumpkin patch with pony rides- the ever reliable Internet told us they were open all week. Turns out, they were only open on the weekends. Sally got to comb the pony's mane, so all was okay.

This next part will be for my Mom (and anyone else who's interested) as well. Her are some pictures of our time since she got on the big airplane, as Sally says.
My family is so cute- you know you're jealous.

Sally looks happy. Does Alice?
Sally Rose is still super sweet and super cute.
Here's our little peanut in her peanut shell- a gift from Amy- I use it daily and LOVE it!!!

What a cutie

Maybe this is what Alice was remembering in the previous picture. Sally really loves her baby sister, sometimes a little too exuberantly.
Look at my cute girls!

I love this picture

Sally loves slides

Alice loves sleeping through tummy time

She has such a concerned expression here- don't worry little one.

Baby in the awesome sling again

Such a sweet girl.

Cute pictures! Mom is always fun and helpful, especially after babies arrive. We're glad to have her back!

Ah shucks! You're too nice.
Alice is changing a lot. I miss holding that cute baby, listening to adorable Sally antics, and beating you in Scrabble! Thank goodness I'll be back soon.
