It goes without saying, really, but I will say it again...I am so blessed to have such a great mom. And Ellis is so very blessed to know her as Grandma Rose. Since E was born, my mom has come over each afternoon to spend time with her. Initially, Adam and I would use the time to take Henry for a walk. To get out of the house and get fresh air. But eventually, when I was ready to work out again (and boy was I ready!), Adam and I would use the time to go for a jog around the neighborhood.
Now, since I've returned to work, my mom is still coming over each afternoon - sometimes meeting us as we get home in the afternoons (smile)! Adam and I returned to the gym and teaching Body Combat with ease knowing that E was in good hands and truly being spoiled and well taken care of for the hour and a half that we use to work out. I have yet to go into my postpartum self here on the blog - and though I seriously plan to, I will just say for now that getting back to working out and teaching Body Combat seriously helped me come out from under the cloud I was feeling. I needed it like I needed air to breathe. And I think my mom knew that.
So to say that we are blessed beyond measure to have my mom is truly an understatement.
And Miss Ellis absolutely loves her afternoons with Grandma Rose.
This particular afternoon, my mom noticed my camera on the dining room table and insisted that E looked just too cute in her yellow outfit to not have a quick photoshoot (smile!). I am so glad she did.

My wonderful mom, and my sweet little girl in yellow and gray. Love.
