in preparation of...

Hudson's arrival into this world, I was able to squeeze in a week of having my parents in town...and oh, how much I needed that. Mom even came with her working gloves on {if you know her at all, you're likely not surprised}.
We spent the week scouring the city for all things pretty to make our house a home, because my mom has a way better eye for decor than her daughter does. She completely transformed our house! From lamps and pillows to prints and frames, she definately fancied up our house, and we are ever so thankful. In between wall hangings and stopping to eat, it was baby stuff that dominated our trip. But, of course.
There were paci's and glass bottles to sterilize and wash, sippy cups to put up, and some very willing grandparents to lovingly help. We only bought four bottles, because Hudson gets to dine a la carte off of mommy for a long time, but would you believe there are still about 764 parts to those four teency bottles?? eeesh.
My daddy would even make runs to the farm market to pick up some berries for his daughter and grandson, because what's summer without strawberries from down the road?
Daddy even got to join in on the fun, because after mom and I came home with two carts full of goodies from Babies R Us, he had bassinets and swings to put together---while I ended up with loads more laundry to do...I'm not sure who came out the winner on that one.
Amidst the shopping, eating, and organizing somebody did some growing!!!
While we did do some touristy dinners and such, most of our good eats were some impromptu dinners at home. After having lived across the street from mom and dad the last three years----we very much enjoyed our casual nights with them and it made our house feel even more like home.
It was such a lovely week, and I was so sad to see them go. Comforting though, the thought of knowing they will be back in such a short time to meet their very first grandbaby ♥ Mom and dad we love you endlessly and wish daily there weren't so many miles between us but we anxiously await your next visit with open arms and a really sweet and tiny baby boy!
xoxo.

It sounds like you had a great visit with your parents. My mom is like yours she comes to my house in nice clothes and has her gardening gloves in the car and ready in case she decides to pull a few weeds or something while she's over. Its funny.
Your little guy will be here so soon! How exciting. I bet you guys are getting antsy to see him and hold him and just love him. How fun. I can't wait to see pics of him.
