Goodbye's stink!

BeLLa headed back home this morning and we were all SO sad to say goodbye to her.  We knew this day would come and I remember how hard it was when she left after I had Sawyer.  You can read about it here if you missed it.  Well, it wasn't any easier this time.  And it felt like it came way too fast.  I can't believe it's been 4 weeks since Graham was born.

There is just something about your mom!  There is no one I trust more, no one more comforting to me and no one else who gets me quite like my mom.  But this time it wasn't just about me.  There are two little boys who loved every second they got to spend with their BeLLa, Sawyer especially.  I think this whole transition for Sawyer was easier because my mom was here to help.  And I am so grateful for this past month with her,  all of her help and all of the sweet memories we all made together during this special time.

Mom, I can never thank you enough for all you did.  Please come back very soon!
Okay, now for some pictures.  Bob came to visit this weekend and it was really good to see him. 
We had a great couple of days - minus our AU loss. 

Perfect breakfast to me -- doughnuts and a pumpkin spice latte.

These two sweet boy have my heart! 

And I'm pretty sure hers too.

Saw got to shoot some pool with Daddy.  He loved it!

Preparing some game day snacks.

Yesterday afternoon, we went to the park to enjoy the nice weather.  Saw loved it.  But he didn't want any help doing anything.  The boy is stubborn!

And adorable!

I've been thinking about you all this morning as I knew it would be hard for everyone! I'm glad that mom got to stay for so long! Jealous but glad...jk! I love Sawyer's sweet smile in these pictures and I can't believe how much Graham has changed! Both boys are adorable and you look great too! I miss you and can't wait to see you again! Love you!
