Guess who came to visit her new grandson and coordinate outfits with him?
It was so nice to have my mom around for awhile, especially to entertain the toddler. Blake baked all sorts of treats with his “Ya-Ma Youlie” (Grandma Julie).
Grandma taught Blake that cookies were a breakfast food. That makes for a fun morning battle each day.
They colored pasta together.
They painted beautiful pictures.
And what would a visit from Julie Nash be without some crafting? I’d like to take credit for these projects but all I did to contribute was pick out and purchase the fabric. Here is the car seat canopy she made:
I found this awesome vinyl fabric and had the idea to recover our dingy looking highchair cover. Before and after:
More vinyl fabric projects:
Finally, my mom whipped up these cute aprons in just a few hours. I wish I had inherited some of her amazing sewing skills!
It was such a relief to have some help. I was pretty spoiled during my mom’s stay; I don’t think I unloaded our dishwasher or prepared Blake’s breakfast once! I will be missing the little extra sleep I received and the company we all enjoyed. Thank you, Ya-Ma!
