sad to see her go...
My mom was here this past week, from last Saturday until tonight. She came to help me out so I could get some school work done. She watched Ollie in the days and stayed up with him at night (all night, every night = bliss for me). She did the dishes and laundry too. It was truly amazing. She is wonderful. On top of all of that, she drove here from Utah by herself so she could help me. I feel so blessed to have her as my mom.
My brother and his girlfriend are also here visiting. It's fun having them here.
This morning I took my Bio midterm. W was sweet and made me an omlet before I left. I studied for roughly 60 hours for that test. I really felt like I lived at the library this past week. I think I did okay. I'm just glad it's over. Now I only have to do that one more time (for the final) and I can put this class behind me.
We had a fun little photo shoot this afternoon of the three of us. I will have to share pictures as soon as I get them back. I'm excited about them.
W and I went on a date tonight - our first date since Oliver's birth. My brother stayed with Oliver while we went out for Indian food (our favorite). It was nice to get out for a bit.
We're sitting in his nursery - W is rocking our sleeping baby and I'm sitting on the floor typing out these thoughts. We're listening to Elizabeth Mitchell's Little Bird cd and singing along every so often (we both pretty much have it memorized now). These are times I don't want to ever forget.
