Happy Due Date!

My mom

Well, today was Judah's due date. He was a week old on Monday...hard to believe! I feel like he's been in our lives for longer.

My mom left on Tuesday night. It was so sad! Having her here for the past week was a major blessing for Thomas and me as we were able to sleep while she kept watch by night. :) She was so helpful around the house and willing to do anything for us. It's interesting how your perspective on your own mom changes after you become one yourself. I look at Judah and pray nothing bad ever happens to him. Then I think about all the things I put my parents through as a teenager. I'm so sorry! I love you mom, thanks for everything. I can never tell you enough how much it means to me.

We kept joking with mom that she was spoiling Judah by holding him all night instead of letting him sleep in his crib. He's been so good with not crying very much at all and allowing us to sleep through the night. We were in for a rude awakening after she left. He cried almost all night and Thomas and I had to take him in shifts in order to get some sleep. I guess he'll get adjusted to the night at some point without grandma there to hold him!

We met Thomas' parents at the airport around 2:30 yesterday with Judah in tow. It's so great to have them here with us for the next 3 weeks. We're looking forward to hanging out and them getting to spend time with their first grandchild. Life is good.
