Having my sister and mom here for over a week was heavenly. The extra help, the girls' outings and just the familiarity of family is something I miss everyday. I always heard parents say how hard it is to live far away from family, but now that we've done it, I really understand what they mean. No built in back up and support can be trying and tiring. The silver lining, I suppose, it that is makes us appreciate the time we do have with family in a whole new way. We're already counting down the days until Grampa (Chris's dad) arrives! I just thought I'd share some pictures of Meredith with family over the past couple weeks.
