Pappa & Mummy's visit

A week after my Mom returned to PA, Roby's parents came for a 3-week visit! They were helpful while we continued to adjust to life with a toddler and newborn. Man, what would we do without our parents? O was thrilled to have Nana, Ammachy & Appachan visit for weeks at a time! Clearly he would love if we all lived near one another. I wonder if the future ever holds this for us? We are always saddened when family leave...we feel so far away.

Meeting their fifth grandchild for the first time

As part of Roby's Malayalee culture, the grandfather ties a black string and gold chain around the grandchild's belly on the baby's 28th day of life.

We are forever trying to get the perfect family shots to share with the grandparents. Every year we make my mom and Roby's parents an ofoto calendar with various pics from throughout the year. Thankfully we have many good shots to choose from!

We had to bribe Owie with freshly baked oatmeal raisin cookies for him to comply with taking these pictures! Olive requested a full belly and seemed to deal with her photo shoot pretty well!
