Welcome Aviana

Don't you just love those days that turn out differently than you expected? Our plan today was for church and some random housework like vacuuming and laundry, and some exercise on the treadmill. Oh and pouring down rain all day, not too exciting.

Just as we pulled in from church we got a call from Rafe that this had happened...
Welcome Aviana Loren (that part's after me! Pronounced like Sophia Loren) 7lb, 10 oz. Erin had what sounded like an uneventful labor of about 16 hours. Aviana has a crapload of dark brown hair and is doing very well.

After nap time we went up to visit. Tessa talked about it all the way there and back but was super shy in the room. I think because I had told her she needed to be quiet and obey while in the hospital, and she did! She liked touching her hair and tiny fingers.

Charley was mostly oblivious and more interested in Erin's graham crackers.

They went to a hospital on the north side of Indy which is sort of the more 'swanky' part of town. So after we left, why not celebrate with a nice dinner at PF Changs? (sorry no pics of that but Charley had a rice explosion that required a huge tip for the waiter)

Then we dropped by Trader Joe's for a quick shopping trip, since there's not one anywhere near us. Oh how we love TJ's...both their food and tiny kid size grocery carts. If only they would build one on the south side.

What a wonderful and exciting day it turned out to be. Happy Palm Sunday!

I know I sooooo want a Trader Joes or Whole Foods for the southside, I would be a frequent customer for sure!

Congrats to Erin and family!

The baby has a very pretty face! I have never shopped at Trader Joes either, but my daughter has and really liked it.
