I have found that trying to have a third party present to the conversations helps keep them from geting retold in a distorted manner later on. 

And I think if you keep inviting her to events and sending her pictures you have done all you can to keep the relationship civil.  If she chooses not to return calls, emails, or show up… then it says everything about her and reflects nothing on you.  These are her actions that are uncivil.

I think parents start to get nutty it when they lose a child to marriage, and certainly having a baby cemented you in her sons life way more than a marriage can.  I hope she will mellow out a bit.  Good luck.

Just keep open and honest communication with your Fiance. It sounds like you are both on the same page and he’s supporting you, and that’s good.

As for Future Mother-In-Law.. Send invites, etc, as they come up. Be civil. Don’t respond to anything petty, and – as cynical as it sounds – to avoid “grapevine” drama – try to minimize contact without witnesses.
