Two Weeks with Grandma

Yesterday we said goodbye to my mom who had been staying with us for the past two weeks. My parents live in Virginia, so they aren’t too far away {it’s only a 2 1/2 hour drive} but it was so nice to be able to have my mom come stay with us to help with Baby Brooks during his first few weeks – it’s crazy to think that my mom was with him for 1/2 of his life!

Everyday my mom wanted to post a picture of what she did with Brooks that day on Facebook for her friends & our family to see. It was fun to document our time together in this way so I wanted to share with you a little peek into the past 14 days & how we spent them with my mom!


Day 1 – Brooks gave my mom a Valentine in the form of a Hands & Feet Love Print!

Day 3– Grandma helped give Brooks a bath – He loved it and didn’t even cry!

Day 6 – Grandma & Brooks were #twinning – both wearing red together.
