Thank Heaven for Grandmas

A couple of weeks ago Zayley decided to start playing a couple of games called: "Put Me Down and I Cry" and "I'm Never Sleeping." After just a couple of days of this, I was starting to lose it. Nate needed to go back to school sometime, and I was feeling a little desperate for help. Enter: Grandma Gail.

Gail flew in on Sunday afternoon (we called her on Saturday night!) and was able to stay for the entire week. Zayley had a wonderful time with Grandma Gail. Zayley started trying to smile, play with her voice, and track faces. She got all kinds of tummy time so she could practice holding her head up, and she even started getting really good at sleeping during the night. Gail also helped Nate and I get some sleep and made it so that Nate could go to school at a reasonable hour. I was finally able to get out of the house a little more and started doing some normal grocery shopping.

Gail went home the day before Easter so we made sure that we colored some Easter eggs while she was here. We were all sad to see her go (I was personally terrified); however, since she has left we have discovered that we can in fact handle Zayley and that we are not terrible parents.

Thanks again Grandma Gail...we can't wait to see you again in a few weeks!
