Add me to the list of "reading but not finding time to post"... I don't seem to find time for much of anything these days! Well, other than nursing, changing diapers, cleaning up spit-up, reading books, packing up diaper bags and car seats, etc... :LOL
I took Iain to my chiropractor on Thursday and he got an adjustment. He didn't throw up at all Thursday (though we saw her in the afternoon) or Friday. That's the first time in a week or ten days he hasn't thrown up at all! Jeremey (DH) was changing him for our party (see below!) and Iain flopped backwards pretty far - enough to make him cry and fuss for a bit. He vomited again a short while later. Sigh. Hopefully it's just 'cause of the backbend he did and he'll be okay after this. At least, perhaps another adjustment will fix whatever got messed up and he'll go back to being okay! Anyhow, we were at least encouraged by these last couple of days...
We had our "Welcome Baby" party today, and it went pretty well. I did some decorating with some dipes - it was cute.
We didn't have nearly as many people as I thought would probably come, though at one point my living room was quite full, anyway! (It was an open house sort of thing, so we didn't have everyone all at once.) There were some people we really expected to be there that didn't show up or call, so we were disappointed in that. But, I'd been praying that just the right people would come - so I have to trust they did!
Iain actually slept through most of it in his bassinet that we'd moved into the living room. I kinda feel badly about that because not everyone got to see him as much as I'd hoped - I kinda thought for those who had already met him (most of those who came had) that they'd get to see him "in action" a bit more and that might be neat. But, he slept.
It was great for me 'cause I was scurrying around picking up things and trying to keep a neat appearance for whomever would show up next. I did actually wake him up for some friends who hadn't ever seen him and whom I see rarely.
Is it weird to feel badly because people brought gifts? We got a couple of gift cards and some lovely things. Some of it I know people were wanting to do anyway and this just gave them an opportunity, but I'd hate it if anyone felt like they needed to give us a gift. KWIM? Especially with a party we hosted ourselves! I think everyone who came brought something. It was very thoughtful but I hate to feel like somehow we "asked" for it. Anyhow, I need to go dig up some thank you notes (or decide to stamp some) and get them out before I forget about it.
Well, we are all zonked from getting ready and running around all day. It's not even 9:30pm and I'm thinking bed sounds like a very good idea!!
