THere's nothing like having mom around to make you feel better about anything! My mom came to stay for the week and help me get all the last minute nesting and errands done for the baby. Priceless. She cleaned, made me sit down every once in a while, worked a bit in my yard, did the curtains for the babies room, went shopping with me, helped me arrange the nursery, wash all the clothes and sheets and just be a MOM! We did LOTS of talking and discussing what baby girl Howell will look like, be like, what kind of mom I want to be, what kind of Nona (grandma) she wants to be . . . It was great. I can't imagine going through this without her.

Micca and Michal were here from Okie-Land for the week. I really couldn't tell you in words how amazing it is to have your best friends here in Montana - to visit, hang out and just talk our brains out. Micca helped plan the shower and Michal had some time off and made the trip despite having to leave her ADORABLE baby boy for 4 days. What great friends!

The dogs really enjoyed their visitors too . . . Even though, as you can see, they much prefer any moment that Peter is around the most. This is the typical "welcome home" routine after he leaves for 15 minutes to go to the store and back.

This is Mic and I at the airport. The worst part about her coming is that I know it has to end at some point. We usually cry... Then cry more an hour later. I HATE seeing her go! I am really trying to get her to just move up here. It would make things MUCH more simple.

Next time Micca come to visit will be in a few weeks for Baby Howell's arrival. She will be OUT of the belly and actually IN her aunt Micca's arms! Pretty crazy to think about. Baby Howell already LOOOOVVVEEESSS her and can't wait to meet her!

Me crying - what's new these days!

Another wonderful suprise visitor- Amy and Cash!

They came all the way up from Gillette, WY for the shower and to visit for the weekend. Cash is now 6 months old - even though he is so enormous he looks like a 9 month old. He is as cute as they come and we (especially Peter) had a lot of fun playing house with him. This got Peter really excited about our little one coming in a few short weeks.

My AMAZING sister-in-law at the shower. She is the best. Can't really imagine a better family to marry into . . . . I didn't know she was coming to the shower until she walked in the door!
