Family visit

Sorry for the silence, but it's hard to type with a little piggy constantly demanding food.

My sister Meaghan, her daughter Catherine, and my father came for a visit to meet the newest member of the family and to help me manage the care of two kids. It was so, so wonderful to have Catherine's help entertaining Sidamo and holding Nora and Meg's help with cooking, housework, and various tasks of mothering. And both kids loved spending time with Pop-Pop!

Catherine already wants to know when she can paint Nora's nails

That's right, blame it on Aunt Meg

Pop-Pop and progeny

That postpartum belly makes for a pretty comfy pillow

Yaaaaaay! I gave up on sleep (as usual) and headed here to see if you were around! Nora is SO DANG CUTE. She really looks like you! I'm glad it's going well. I cannot wait to join you! :)
