Friday Favorites: Grandparent Time

Welcome to Friday favorites: a weekly linky for your favorite blog posts from the week co-hosted by Maya of Musings of a Marfan Mom and me!

In addition to the linky, I'm taking this opportunity each week to write a little bit about my favorite moments from the past week. I hope you'll feel inspired to leave a comment telling me about your favorite thing(s) that happened this week, too!



These are a few of my favorite things:



This past week seems to have gone by so quickly!

Jaymz was off of work for the long weekend, and his parents were here visiting us until early this week, which was just lovely. I am so grateful they were able to fly all the way out here to spend some time with our family before the arrival of Baby #2. We finished several house projects with their help, and started several more that are now still progressing (a bit slower). We rearranged our room to be ready for baby by putting our mattress on the floor to enable safer bed sharing, setting up the changing table, and spending time washing and sorting all the baby clothes we'd saved from Daniel's infancy. We also made a lot of progress on organizing the messy basement, and the room where I plan to give birth is coming along, too. There were also copious culinary treats to consume, and we even canned chicken stock and put some chili in the freezer for a post-baby meal. Overall, it was an incredibly productive few days, and I'm so very grateful for all the help!

Daniel also reveled in nearly unlimited attention from two new playmates, which I know he loved! He got to do tie dying, lots of reading, going on walks, and building with blocks and dough (among many, many other things). He even had extra helpers taking care of him when he came down with a cold (with fever) over the weekend. D has been talking about how he misses his Nana and Grandpa ever since they left—we're all definitely looking forward to their next visit!
