My parents and sister flew down from Colorado so they could meet the newest member of the Williams family. I think it's safe to say it was love at first sight. When we picked them up from the airport they all went straight to the backseat to say hi to Avery before even acknowledging Matt and I!! I guess I better get used to that :)
My mom arrived 4 days after Avery was born. It was so wonderful to have her here, she was so helpful. She even got up each night to feed Avery at 1:00 so that Matt and I could get a little more sleep. I hope that I will be half the mom she is :)
Dad arrived next, he has always had a huge soft spot for babies but when he met his granddaughter... well lets just say I didn't know if I'd be able to get her out of his arms long enough to feed her!! He was so cute with her, it totally melted my heart.
The proud grandparents
We picked Stefanie up from the airport Friday afternoon and hit terrible traffic on the way home. It was pure torture for her to sit next to Avery in the backseat and not get to hold her for more than an hour!! When we finally got home Stef was able to hold and cuddle her all evening (well, when she could get Avery out of my dad's arms!). She was such a natural, she's going to be a great aunt!
While I was pregnant, I really missed being able to eat sushi... Saturday afternoon mom, Stef and I left Avery with the boys and went to Whole Foods to get everything we needed to make sushi rolls. They were delicious and so fun to make. Thanks Stef!
While we made sushi, the boys enjoyed ribs and beer. Such a typical Dad and Matt picture... I love it!!
