Granny Mrdjenovich Visits The Nevins Family

Granny Mrdjenovich Visits The Nevins Family

Most of you already know that for the last 10 days my mom came to visit and help us care for Eva.  The days went by fast, but the memories we created will be here for a lifetime.  From the first moment Granny walked through the door, she couldn't take her eyes off her beautiful little granddaughter, and as you can see, Eva couldn't take her eyes off Granny either.

While Granny was here, she assisted in everything from changing diapers to coming along for doctor's appointments, to shopping for the family and buying us Christmas decorations to celebrate our first Christmas in our new house.  We all went out one day to shop for our first real Christmas tree:

Granny decorated most of the tree, and I followed up with a few ornaments we've accumulated over the years.  I love it.  Ever since we bought this house, I couldn't wait to put a real tree in our front window, and now the day has come!

Some other adventures we went on while Granny was here is taking Eva in her first stroller ride to the park so Rocky could get some excersize.

Watched the Chargers lose (Boo!)

Had a lazy day

And, Welcomed Aunt Rhonda for a day to show off Eva, who was in Anaheim for work

Here we are, the 3 generations :)

There is so much more that we did together, but I would be here forever sharing pictures and moments, so this is as good as I could do to sum it up.  My mom taught me so much about patience, motherhood, and best of all, to trust my own instincts and know that I am the best mom for my baby.  Needless to say, it was hard to say good-bye for all of us.  Mom (Granny), thank you for the visit and for sharing so much with us.  You are an amazing grandmother and Eva is so lucky to have you in her life, as am I.  We love you sooooo much!

In other Eva news, we are happy to announce that she lost her umbilical cord this morning and she has an innie :)  Last time we checked her weight, she was just an ounce shy of her birth weight, which I am sure she has surpassed by today.  She has her first pediatrics appointment on Tuesday so we will find out how much she has grown since birth, which I am pretty sure she has grown a bit because she already seems so different than those first few days.  She loves being soothed by her daddy, but only cries when she's hungry (which seems to be a bit more lately).  She has slept through the night a few times, but we aren't expecting it to happen often, at least for a few more weeks.

You can check out more pictures taken while my mom visited here.  If you have already looked through the album, I did just add a few more pictures for the last few days that she was here.  Enjoy!
