Attack of the Grandmas!

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

I mean that in a sweet way of course. My mom and grandma arrived last night and their first stop was the hospital to see Maya, who was in Maya form, complete with a couple of "mean Maya" looks, which my Mamaw says is definitely my influence. (I couldnt possibly know what she is talking about... I was a perfectly innocent child!) They are enjoying their visit with the babies. We celebrated Sophia's 21 month birthday with her special dinner and then visited a little while Bobby took one of his few naps of the evening. We went to bed and thought that he would sleep better in the cosleeper. That's a big fat no. Since we still werent holding him, he still wasnt happy. I didnt sleep much. I handled the first feeding and Peter handled the second and third so that I could pump and not doing a feeding/pumping combo, but we were both so tired. I'm surprised I'm still awake. I took a nap this afternoon, but I am just wiped out. I'm pumping now or I'd be asleep! Mom is talking to Bobby (Peter and Mamaw are with Maya).

Mom went with me this morning for a visit with Maya and dont you know she stayed awake the entire time that Mom held her! She told her stories and just talked to her. It was so cute to see her (it's cute right now while she's talking to Bobby). It's amazing to see your mother holding your baby.

Maya had a wonderful day again today. And some NASTY diapers. OMG. Just downright NASTY! She thinks it is funny when we wrinkle our noses and make funny noises. And it is so adorable. So cute! She had her eye exam with her surgeon who said she looked GREAT and just what he'd hoped! We still have a few weeks to go to know how well it worked but she doesnt have to be seen for 2 weeks. Her carseat test is scheduled for tonight (please let that happen!) and they are saying tomorrow or Thursday for her homecoming!!! YAY!!!

Oh, my gosh, what fantastic news all around! What a wonderful day - even though you sound like you were so tired that you were in a fog! :)

Is that for real, she could be home this week. Hooray. Enjoy your company and let them help!
You will have plenty to do when they go home. I am still in awe of Bobby and Maya being home. You have had such a long journey.

Tomorrow or Thursday?! Incredible! Your little babies did so well. I know you had a few bumps along the way, but they really did amazingly on their journey. I'm crossing my fingers for you!
