The Studly Hubby's rockin' awesome employer gave him two weeks off after Layla was born. I didn't realize before she was born how much we would NEED that two weeks - I was totally not ready after one week. We did really enjoy his time off, especially after the first week when I was feeling better and the baby was finally taking short breaks between feedings so we could venture out of the house. Below is one of our first times out with the stroller, we went to the park in the neighborhood.
Just before the Studly Hubby had to go back to work, my mom (Layla's GRANDMA!) arrived in town for 10 whole days to help me out.
She was thrilled to finally meet her granddaughter.
On Grandma's first day here we gave Layla a bath and then went directly out to buy her a pretty bow for her hair and some other nice things.
We went on so many adventures that I got all worn out and so did Layla - she actually slept 6 hours in a row on Saturday night! I couldn't believe it.
Having Grandma here has been GREAT. She is helping me figure out how to take care of her on my own and she is helping with all the housework and many diaper changes. She is also making sure I get out of the house a lot so I don't get bored and worn out from nursing.
