Nana

My mom came to Salt Lake City last week for a visit, and I was spoiled!  We all were spoiled!  She's always the perfect house guest and treats us well, but this time she completely outdid herself and it was amazing.  I literally didn't lift a finger during her stay.  She planned out all our dinners, cooked them, & cleaned up.  She took over bath time & pre bedtime routine.  Never since having kids, have I had so much leisure time in the evenings to just relax.  And relaxing is exactly what this pregnant mama needed!  I would come downstairs after putting Liam to bed each night to a completely clean house.


She's pretty much the best mom, and she completely rocks her role as Nana too!  Liam just loves & adores her!  She brought Valentine's treats & presents (not just for the little one, but for us all), always under the guise of a "house warming gift".  As if that is even necessary!  Oh how I wish she lived just down the street instead of a few states away.


We simply enjoyed every minute we had with her!  Liam & I took her to all our favorite spots, and she finally had the chance to meet many of our new friends.  I have such a special bond with her, so I love any opportunity to immerse her more into our life here in Utah.  



We miss her fiercely already, but she will be back for Finn's birth in just two short months!!!

    1. She really is! Now if only I could finagle a move back to Spokane and live right next door to her... :-)

  4. What a great visit!! Being a mom is definitely a gift that keeps on giving.

    Can't imagine living states away from my mom. Just 5 hours is hard at times.

  9. Grandparents are the best! You look so much like your mom! So glad she was there to take care of you guys for a while. We all need to be spoiled by our mommies, no matter how old we get.

  12. Moms are definitely the best. They just "get you" and know exactly when to swoop in with their bottomless tool bag. I so wish my mom was able to visit more often. Once or twice a year just isn't enough. So glad yall had such fun and many moments of quality time!

  13. What a sweet Mama! I wish my mom could do that for me - B is back to work now, and the days are going to be LONG until Vivian arrives from here on out. Chasing after a toddler all day while 8 months pregnant is hard work!
