|story time with grandma|
My parents came to spend a few days with us and to meet their first grandchild. It was wonderful seeing them in this new "grandparent" role! My mom read books and sang songs to Clara for hours on end (sooooo cute!)...my dad cuddled and cooed with her. They took little video clips of her crying and sleeping and bathing and being sweet. They took tons of pictures with their cell phones and their camera. They told us she is "exquisite" - and we agreed.

They took us out for ice-cream everyday. My mom made us yummy dinners every night, and filled our freezer with her creations so we can eat well for a few days. She cleaned my house... let me nap everyday...and would stay up late with me while I nursed Clara. It was like a vacation in my own home.

I cried when they left...like realllllly cried. As Clara is my little girl, I am my parents'. While they were here I had such a sense of security. Like everything is going to be ok (having a newborn is hard!).
I adore them It's hard to live so far away. I miss them already.
