In-laws visit and such...


July 22nd-August 19th
I was lucky to have my mother in law and her husband come to town for an extended visit; they were so incredibly helpful and I'm so thankful for the time they spent with us...
Although they missed Gaby's birth, they were able to come to town a few days after she was born and spent some quality time with us and the girls... it was great!
My mother in law helped me with Olivia every day and gave her a lot of attention so that she wouldn't resent her little sister. She also helped me a lot around the house with things such as laundry, cooking, shopping and general housekeeping...
We did have a few disagreements here and there (as with any mother in law).. but all in all their visit was great....
They left a couple of days ago and I already miss them terribly... I can only hope they come back to visit rather sooner than later...
Today, as I reminisce about their visit, I realize that I was so lucky to have them around for almost a whole month...
I've felt a little lonely since they left and I continue to make efforts to adjust to my new life as a mommy of two, which is rather challenging... Although I know I can handle it, I can't help but feel overwhelmed at times....
