I have been extremely spoiled the past couple of weeks with wonderful family members who came to help me recover and help me with my children. There is something wonderful about big families, and my older sisters really stepped in with my mom being on a mission. My boys now know their Aunt Jeanie, Aunt April, and Luke's Sister, Aunt Carissa very well.
Jeanie brought so many fun things for my boys to do, that we are still enjoying the projects she left.
There is nothing like Grandparents coming to visit and help. My boys love their grandparents and will forever remember making mud pies with Grandpa. It was fun to have them around on Father's Day.
Luke's sister Carissa and my sister April who are great friends came together to help and it was so nice. They left me with a full fridge, a clean house, and happy children. I even learned how to use my pressure canner while they were here. I have now been a few days alone and we are surviving. I still am not ready to take Violet out so we make all our fun at home. My children eat breakfast every day with Dad, but I'm hoping soon to learn to function on less sleep. Violet is still sweet and I am loving the pacifier. She is now 5 pounds 10 ounces and can now fit into some newborn clothes.
