A Busy Weekend

You know how some people's social lives slow down after they have a baby? If this last weekend was any indicator, apparently we are not one of those families. Friday night we went out to dinner with my dad. Then on Saturday we fit a little cleaning in between shopping in the morning, a birthday party in the afternoon, and a belated St. Patty's Day gathering in the evening. Sunday we hosted a brunch for several couples and their little ones. It was one of those things I wanted to do for a while but wanted the house to be perfect first. Well finally I realized that it would never happen if I waited for perfection, so we might as well start living. Brunch seemed like a good option because (1) evening gatherings are not as feasible with babies and (2) I'm not much good at cooking anything besides breakfast.

It was a fun albeit tiring weekend. It didn't help that Jillian did not sleep well Friday night, and I try to handle middle of the night wake-ups on the weekends since Jeramy does them during the week. Work almost seemed relaxing today...almost.

Oh, and unfortunately Jillian did not make it to the next round of the Baby Idol contest. I think the voters must have been blind to overlook my precious Jillian, but don't worry. I'm not going to go all Toddlers and Tiaras on anybody. (Is it even possible for TLC to find new ways to exploit the children of crazy families?). Jillian seems to be handling her first life disappointment quite well and spent the weekend entertaining many of our friends with her smiles and babbling.

Wow! That does sound like a busy weekend. I'm lucky if I can fit house cleaning into a day of staying home and playing with Lemy. :P

Super busy weekend...but sounds like it was refreshing and fun! Sorry about all the middle-of-the-night wakings - Julian does that too - he's constantly flipping onto his belly in his sleep and whines until we flip him back over...so annoying and tiring.

I'm amazed that you "cleaned" in between all the fun! Good job mommy!

Thank goodness! That gives me hope. Hubby is quite the social butterfly and I worry how he'll be once the little one gets here. Of course, it all sounds very tiring to me . . .

Thanks for having us at the brunch, it was delicious! Your friends are super friendly and were kind enough to welcome us even though we don't own a 4WD vehicle. Or a gun safe. Or a gun. :) The house was beautiful, I love all the upgrades! Those are the nice touches that I'd love to add to our place, when DH gets a second job to pay for it all. I'm thinking that brunch should be a monthly event. I could get used to those crepes! LOL

I'm sorry I missed the voting! I totally would have given her those 10 votes a day!

glad you had such an awesome, but tiring, weekend.

Wow! You fit into one weekend what I fit into a two week time period. Holy cow! But it sure does sound fun.

She should have won!
