I was going through the photos on my phone and realized I never posted these from when my parents were in town.  They're really cute and I miss them a lot, so of course they need to be shared!  Also, my dad informed me that he's never made an appearance on my blog, so Dad, this one is for you ;).

If there ever comes a day where we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.

I've mentioned that my mom came into town before having the baby to help out.  She ended up staying an entire month until my dad drove to Indiana to bring her back home.  I don't think I will ever be able to repay my parents for the help they gave our family during the eventful transition from one to two kids.  My mom became my second set of hands as she pampered me -- cleaning, grocery shopping, cooking, and playing with Pier.  Let me tell you, the woman has a heart of gold.  She's full of gentleness, thoughtfulness, and grace.  She is also a big kid in the best way and I loved watching her creativity take hold as she played with her grandchildren.  She made him a puppet show and a play house out of all the Amazon Prime cardboard boxes in our garage. The stuff she comes up with!

Seeing my dad meet Eulalie for the first time was so sweet.  Watching that manly man become a big softie whenever his grandchildren enter the room just makes my heart melt.  That little girl already has him wrapped around her tiny finger!  We miss them both so much.  Even though it's been almost two weeks since they left, Pier still asks where Kimmie and Pepere went every morning.  He loves his grandparents (almost as much as he loves flowers ;)).  We're doubly lucky to have my in-laws coming into town this weekend to meet Eulalie so I know he's going to have a blast with Annie and Papa too.  Family is everything to us, and I'm just really grateful to have four people in our lives who love my children as much as I do.
