Thank you, Grandma!!

My mom left today after 2 months of watching Ryan.  We are all sad to see her go, but Phoenix is waiting and we can't blame her for wanting out of here before winter hits! 

Andy and I are in for a reality check on Monday morning when we try to get ourselves and our 3 young children out the door on time.  Andy has made several references to wanting a morning nanny to help out.  :-)  Mom also helped us with many most dinners, baths, and bedtime.  And she babysat so Andy and I could get out every now and then.  THANK YOU, Mom!!!!

The kids are sad to see Grandma go too.  She is definitely Drew and Kayley's favorite playmate.  She played with them constantly - playing catch, pitching balls to Drew, board games, card games, writing on the white board, reading books, bike rides, etc.  And of course, she took great care of Ryan and she is the only one of us who can get him to drink his bottle well so we are in for a battle now.

Ryan starts daycare on Monday.  I know he will be just fine, but I am still sad to send him.  We were so lucky to have Mom watch Drew and Kayley when they were babies and the thought of Ryan losing that one on one attention he has had the last 4 months makes me feel bad.  But, we love our daycare and I know they will take great care of him. 

Here are a few pictures from the last week and a video of Ryan showing off his talking skills (and a little more!):
