My mother flew in for Eli's birth and stayed with us for 10 days cooking, cleaning and even pushed us out the door for an early Valentines date, knowing we wouldn't get the opportunity again...for a loooong time. Then a week and a half later my father brought my sisters to town on their break from school. Annnnd now the husband father and wife just left. We've got one more weekend with visitors and then it's just us for a while.
