We had The Boy's birthday party today, and it was such a success! It was supposed to have been outside, but honestly, it worked out better to have it indoors. I do wish that the weather had been nice enough for the swingset but we'll get to that eventually. Maybe tomorrow if it isn't raining.
All the grownups got along, and it was a good mix of people. All the kids were wonderfully behaved, got along famously, and played with ALL of The Boy's toys.
One of my friends from WAY back came to the party, with husband, kids, and her mom! My mother was thrilled. They're good people. They even helped us with cleanup after the party was over.
I demolished my diet today but will resume at least a moderate version of the anti-thrush diet tomorrow. The biggest thing I think I'll change is that Ezekiel bread is now allowed. And if I go out to breakfast, so is corn beef hash. Dairy is still off the list. And I'll continue to watch my sugars. I feel somewhat better as far as nursing is concerned but I don't know how much of it has to do with the diet and how much has to do with the fact that Tiny Guy really is calming down, and that I can now tell if he is actually hungry or if he is playing.
This morning it took pumping, calming by Grandma, AND change of position to get him to eat well.
Today/this week, he likes to lie on his stomach across someone's lap and listen to Mommy sing the Polecats. And Daddy singing bass (but Mama sings lead, at least in this song, and bonus points for getting the reference). Who knows what will make him happy next week?
