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.
