We had a friend over both Friday night (before heading over to our neighbor's to see the fireworks) and Saturday night, and E seemed to take it well. I had to rush off with him a few times to nurse, but other than that, things seemed to go without a hitch.

I *still* have not pumped. There should be a requirement that nothing needs assembly when new parents are involved. I looked at the instructions, saw all this talk about tubing and valves and boiling everything first, and my brain just shut down. Let's face it, when I am not feeding him, changing him or sleeping, the last thing I want to do is work with complicated machinery.

Anyway, this weekend reminded me that it is nice to be social, so I think I will take the plunge and have a birthday party in a couple of weeks. Wish me luck!

Hooray for summer birthdays! Will this be like E's "coming out" party? And when I say "coming out" I mean as in a debutante, not a gay person :)

Sort of ;) He's met some of the invitees before, but not all.

Yay for birthday parties!
Whatcha gonna do??? Two years ago I had a chocolate "tasting" party and everyone brought different chocolate dishes. That was delish!

Just a run-of-the-mill birthday party at my apt ;) There may be some chocolate, though. You never know.
