I'm sad to say that my dad went back home yesterday. It was great to have him around and little Ella just loved her grandpa. I can't wait to take her back to Montana for everyone to meet her.
While he was here, my dad had the absolutely brilliant idea of buying us a swing. It has been a lifesaver in the last few days. I was even able to take a nap yesterday! Woohoo! It doesn't always do the trick - Ella still likes to be held from time to time - but it has helped immensely so far and given me time to take care of important things... such as going to the bathroom :-)
