Back when we moved from Missouri to Mississippi, Sam had to start work before we had found a place to live. My parents very graciously offered for us to stay with them until we found a place. Not just anyone would take in a 4 year old, 2 year old, 4 week old and their parents!! We had a lot of fun while staying there and it was great spending so much time with my family after years apart from them. However, since Sam only got to come to Jackson a night or two a week, we were ready to be reunited as a family in Columbus sooner than later :-) We stayed at my parents from Feb 27-April 19! We were ever so grateful!!
Mac loves Clara and when she cries, he rushes over with his doggy and blanky to make her feel better.
During our time at CeCe's, we figured out that Clara slept much better on her tummy. So a tummy-sleeper she is.
Playing all together
Clara used her swing for the first time there and began watching the little mobile that hangs above
They love watching movies and eating popcorn at CeCe's, especially when the cousins are over
Clara also started noticing the television during our time there
Clara met the Hill's for the first time as soon as we arrived in Mississippi. Ellie is a lil mama and loves taking care of her.
We took some walks in mom's neighborhood. On this walk the boys were protecting "the princesses" with their "webbons"...a bat and a nerf gun
Played lots of dress-up in Aunt Lia's Disney gear
Caught lizards and kept them in a jug
Sweet brothers taking a walk...it had been a LONG time since we had taken a walk on a road so straight and flat!
Doing a little water painting
Spent lots of time playing and building with PePaw's scrap wood.
Feeding the ducks with PePaw. We love the McAlister's in Jackson where kids eat free on Saturday and Sunday!
Spent LOTS of time with the Hill kids. Our "best buddies"
Bless her, working hard to focus on something. haha
Spent lots of time napping...when someone was holding her! She was still battling reflux pretty bad when we first arrived. But by the time we left she was doing much better.
Lots of race running. Mac constructed this get-up which he deemed his "Anger Bird" running race costume
Loved helping PePaw work any chance they got
Started smiling and laughing while here
We got to watch Parker in some baseball action
She began following the toys that hang down and has loved them ever since
Lots of time hanging out in pjs
And even a little bit of time getting into trouble...and paints.
