As I mentioned in my last post I told my mom to come a week after the baby was born since they always "wake up" and aren't as sleepy. Well I was right...Reagan has definitely gotten harder. And the transition from 1 to 2 is becoming more of a challenge everyday. The great thing is we had lots of visitors to ease the pain a bit. My mom & dad came together and then my mom was able to stay on her own several days after.
Camryn was sure spoiled with attention. My dad is the best at making up games and fun unique ways to play with his grandkids and Camryn was obsessed. It was so great having both my parents play so much with her to make her feel so special when I was unable.
This was our first family outing with the babybjorn and I was able to walk more than a few steps. Even though it was cloudy-Salt Creek never disappoints and it was fun to show my parents around town since they hadn't seen much of it before.
We also finally succeeded in getting Camryn to hold Reagan (which involved a treat of course). Camryn loves her sister but is a little nervous when it comes to touching her, but it getting much better everyday.
We also got to have my brother Scott and his family in town for the weekend. They stayed with my sis Amy but we were able to do our pool/hot tub on Saturday for a BBQ and also dinner on Sunday night at the park. This is Camryn and her cuz Ryan in her car. She loved getting to ride with all her cousins and luckily they liked the car as much as she does.
Cute SIL Carrie & Reagan
Camryn and 3 of the 4 Motley boys. Some of the cutest boys I know and you can tell how much Camryn loves them too.
After everyone else had to go home we got to have my mom all to ourselves. She even got to see Camryn's first real dance class. It is so fun to see her dance. I am also glad to know I am not the only one that is obsessed with her little body in her ballet clothes.
Showing off her adorable apron that my mom made. On top of sewing projects, she also stocked up on everything at Costco, made meals for us, cleaned every nook & cranny, played with Camryn & helped out so much with the baby.
Her last night we took her to go see the Newport Temple and out to dinner as a small thank you for doing so much for us. I have one great mom who is such a giver. I was so sad to see her go and my other family, I just pray that though the honeymoon is over I will be able to make it through the next couple of weeks with a some ease.
