Thank you everyone for all the sweet birthday wishes. It was, indeed, a happy day for me--a happy weekend, in fact! As you may have gathered from Mike's...um...thoughtful post (I'm not sure my poor brother would agree with the "thoughtful" part.), we had a house full of family this weekend.
My parents stayed with us for the entire weekend, and my brother and his beautiful family joined us for the day on Saturday. It was such a treat for me--I don't think we've all been together in Mike's and my house since Eva was born! What a lucky girl I am.
(Somehow, we all managed to fit in our small kitchen to enjoy a meal together. A miracle.)
