One of the best parts of being a mother...

...is being a daughter, too.  Watching my own mother with her grandson is a tremendous joy and blessing. 

Is it love?  I think so!
My saintly mother, who is one of my dearest friends and greatest role models, arrived several days ago to spend time with her newest grandson and to help me and Nate.  Her experience and guidance are great comforts as we navigate parenthood.  Having a third set of helping hands is invaluable, especially when those hands are fixing delicious meals, soothing Henry during the middle of the night, or giving me a hug.  Her presence brings added light to our already bright house and I am brimming with thankfulness that she is here with us.
