6am//I LOVE 6am. That's when it turns light outside and it lights up our bedroom, and I think to myself "yay, i did the night and now its day time!" This is how baby sleeps, right next to me.
7am//early bath with me this morning cus Jachen planned to skype family early. Baths really have been helping my body heal, and him with me is such a little treat. He is so calm and serene.
He LOVES his daddy.
8am//Skype call with Jachen's mom
830am//Skype call with his grandparents. (his aunt and uncle too) Jachen rarely has seen his granddad smile, this was one of those times. His grandma emailed after we had the baby about how granddad was bragging to friends that he is going to be a great granddad. Which is something very unlike him to do.
9am//Jachen made me breakfast. So me and baby ate breakfast in bed. :)
10?//Jachen said to me "go do something, I get baby" and then snuggled him and took a rest with him
11ish//My one request for Mother's Day was that Jachen take the nail polish off my toes and fingers and then repaint my toenails. It was driving me nuts!
Sometime that afternoon after lots of feeding, and such
3ish//I cleaned some dishes and then started the pasta salad for our mothers day picnic
3ish 4 ish//Watched a little Star Wars
5//family mothers day picnic. He slept the whole time and got passed around. Had a lot of fun, besides when the bird in the tree above pooped on my pant leg! Nasty!
I realized that now I have a kid in there and will have to participate in picture taking again.

This month post is a departure from the normal 10 on 10 format. This is the top 10 things we did with my parents last week! My mom and dad came on Friday morning, my dad left earlier than my mom who stayed until today (I wrote this on the 10th).
In no particular order:
In the morning we had a short "devotional" which led to opening a small box of candy filled eggs and a gift. It was nice to have their Grandparents able to watch as they opened the goodies. We all enjoyed a special breakfast before settling down for General Conference. That evening we had our good family friends (the Farmers) over for dinner. They hid eggs for the kids in the back yard. It was a short but fun Easter egg hunt! Both kids were super into it, and Henry was able to be super into it while still letting his sister find her eggs.
2. Reading lots of books with Papa and Grandma.
Piggie and Elephant books. My mom bought him another one... so that's all we've been able to read to him since she left:)
3. Visiting BYU campus.
4. My mom coordinated a long-distance matching shirt day between all the boy cousins that have the same shirt- a shirt she gave them all at Christmas time. Lisa had texted her pictures of her three boys wearing the shirt, so we dressed Henry in the same and my mom texted Alicia and Natalie to dress their boys in it. Alicia said Xander already happened to be wearing his! (not sure if that's true... Alicia?). It was fun for us grown-ups.
And these awesome attempts at getting three boys into one picture by Lisa (Colin, Zachary and Clancy)
5. Yummy lunches with Grandma, including this picnic
6. "Grandma school"
I came back home from running an errand to find my mom and Henry engaged in a math lesson. In that time my mom successfully taught Henry teen number recognition.
7. Pizza buffet.
8. Walks with Grandma
9. Date night!
We left the kids with my mom and enjoyed a date night: dinner, frozen yogurt and... thrift store shopping!
10. Bonneville Salt Flats
I hope it shows that we had a really good time with my parents during their visit - because we did! Thanks for visiting us, we love you and can't wait to see you again!
