Tutu meets Caleb!

Sorry for the absence!! My Mom came in town on Wednesday and got to meet Caleb!!! I was SO thankful she was able to fly in and spend some time with us. It was a big relief to me to know that the older three kids would have someone with some energy to play with them, and that they'd have a great time. I felt bad that we didn't do very many fun or exciting things - but I guess that wasn't the purpose of this trip! She got to be here for Caleb's first bath, and was a HUGE help to us in getting some of the last minute preparations for school starting done. We were even able to leave the other 3 kids home with her while we took Josiah to meet his new teacher at the open house. So it was a blessing! We're all in a depression now that she's left, but at least we know we'll see her in a few more weeks (Labor Day weekend). Thanks for coming Tutu - you saved us!

Mom helped me give Caleb his first bath on Friday because his belly button finally fell off!!

Mom came with us to church on Sunday morning - my first Sunday back. It was nice to have some extra hands! :) As you can see by Josiah's face in this picture, he was in a foul mood that morning...sigh...

Caleb started to really follow our faces over the last few days. He's so smart!

I don't think he ever relaxes his eyebrows - they're always up!!! And eyes wide open!

Goodbye Tutu - come back to see us again...we'll be more fun, I promise!

I DO love my Mom!! :)

I'm so glad your back...I was worried, don't know why because you can always handle EVERYTHING, but I've just been thinking about you and your four cuties. Wondering how you're handling it all, praying that you're getting rest...
Anyway, I LOVE the picture of your mom holding Caleb after his first bath. It's a great picture of her and the last one is so sweet of her looking down at Caleb sleeping. I'm so glad she was able to come visit and help out a little. There is nothing like having your mom after having a baby. I'm not even going to think about havning another baby until my mom moves here :)
