We had some family visit this last weekend and it was such a joy! My mom had surgery earlier this year and doesn't have any vacation days, so coming two states over to visit Victoria has been difficult. So my husband and I surprised her by purchasing a flight for her to come for the weekend.
My mom was shocked that Victoria had grown so much. She hadn't seen her since she was 7 weeks old, so the difference was huge. Victoria is a very big, strong, solid baby, and she showed off her new skills to her very attentive Nana
It was a cold weekend so we bundled up Victoria and went for a walk in the sunshine. I try to make sure Victoria gets outside at least once a day. (By the way, I got her little fleece suit in the photo below for just $5 at a consignment sale!)
I've realized the trick to getting family to come visit from out of state is to have a baby! ;)
