Things I Love Thursday: my family!

I'm besides myself with excitement. Tonight my parents and my grandma will be flying in to stay with us for a week and a half! And since it's also Thanksgiving, it only seemed right to dedicate this Things I Love Thursday to my family! My parents live in California, but my grandma lives overseas, so I rarely see her. My parents came out right after the baby was born, but I haven't seen my grandma for some years now.

Obviously, she has never met my husband or our daughter. She's seen pictures, but this will her first meeting them. I am so very happy and thankful that our little princess will be able to meet her grandma. Unlike my husband who has 3 FULL sets of grandparents, my grandma is the only grandparent left on my side. Most of my childhood memories involve my grandma (and my grandpa), and for a while I even lived with them during the week while my parents worked. After I started school, I still made sure to stay overnight with them during the weekend. I still have the teddy bear that she gave me for my 2nd birthday, and I'm proud to say that I still sleep with him every night (My husband swears I love the bear more than him). I am so thankful that my little girl now has a chance to get to know the wonderful woman that is my grandma.

With the little princess' crazy weight issues, I haven't really had time to figure out where to take them or how to entertain them, but that's the great thing about having family for company. They just don't care. They would rather stay at home and play with the baby than go for a whirlwind tour of the city. Nonetheless, it will still be rather chaotic. That's a total of 6 people and 2 dogs living in my house for 2 weeks.

And it'll get even MORE chaotic. Next weekend, my uncle and his family will be driving in from New York, and they'll be bringing their puppy. They're going to be staying in a nearby hotel, but obviously they're still going to hang out at my house. That makes for TEN people and THREE dogs crammed into my house next weekend.

I kind of wish that this family reunion could be postponed until after the baby's weight issues, but hey, at least that makes for more people to take over some baby feeding shifts! Maybe I'll remember what my arm looked like before a bottle or a spoon was permanently attached to it!

I have a couple of posts prepared, and some AWESOME guest bloggers have covered my back. I will still be around, but please try to be understanding if I take forever and a day to get back to your email.

Oh, and I nearly forgot...HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
