Five down...

This weekend was BIG.

My gorgeous little niece, Ailani Janelle Miller, was born on Friday afternoon at 12:55 pm. She is 7 pounds and 2 ounces and 19.75 inches long. She has tons of black hair and serious attitude. The nurses at the hospital actually yelled at my sister for letting her drink a full two ounce bottle. (She's going to be nursing when they get home but there were lots of complications during her c-section that they forced her to wait...) My sister was a mess. Saturday morning when they made her get up, her blood pressure and blood sugar were so low that when she stood up, she blacked out. Terik is so in love with his little girl, it's so charming to see.

Saturday was Steve's and my fifth wedding anniversary. We had a really great day. First we went to Turning Point, our favorite little breakfast place, like we have every anniversary. This time we had all three kids with us and it was just good. Steve adn I looked at each other across the table and we were just content. After breakfast, we went next door to Barnes and Noble and browsed around for awhile. Joey fell asleep and Andy played with their Thomas train table. 

From Barnes and Noble we went to the hospital  to see Ailani and Nela.  We left the kids with my parents and went to dinner at this fantastic rodizio place up the street from my parents house.  We ate copious amounts of meat.  I had a small pitcher of sangria all to myself.  It was a really nice night.  

Sunday was spent house cleaning and relaxing.  We did seven loads of laundry which are now dumped out on my bed, waiting to be folded.

All I see is red x's for the pics, but hopefully they're the same ones you sent me. :) She really is beautiful. Tell Nela I said congrats (what? what do you mean she doesn't KNOW me?!) :)

Happy anniversary again! Sounds like a really nice time you had that day! Any exchanging of gifts? Did you find something made of wood? ;)
