I’m so thankful for my mom being able to be here these last few weeks as we welcomed our fourth baby into the world! She helped lighten my load while we waited for his “late” arrival, was an integral part of my birth team during labor, and took great care of my busy brood and house while I recovered - even staying an extra week to make up for that unexpected late arrival! She cooked and cleaned tirelessly, sparked my kids’ imagination with innumerable rounds of pretend play, conducted school lessons, went grocery shopping, washed clothes, and read stacks of library books - all in the name of true love. Thank you, Mom, for everything! We love you!
