Anyway, after we finished our Starbucks Forrest and I dropped John off at his friend's house. As I mentioned earlier, the guys John works with were throwing him a diaper party. For those of you who are reading this like "HUH, a WHAT?!" a diaper party is something that I pretty common nowadays around where we live. When talking to my friend Kimberly who is from Ontario, she kinda mentioned that diaper parties seem to be a Maritime thing which wouldn't surprise me in the least. Anyway, basically a diaper party is like a man's version of the shower. Only instead of playing cheesy games and eating cake while sipping punch they drink beer and eat chicken wings. Each guy that goes brings a package of diapers for the guy who is going to have/just had a baby (in this case the party was for John). Anyway, it was very nice of them to throw this party for John and I know he had a great time and he is still talking about how great the food was (men - haha)!! Even his friend who lives in Moncton now came to SJ for the party. And we are now stocked up on a lot of diapers and wipes which is so generous of them all!
After Forrest and I dropped Daddy off we came home. I fed and changed Forrest and then we played for a bit until the little man started looking very sleepy so I put him to bed. I watched a little TV myself but then decided to go to bed myself since Jimmy's girlfriend would be picking John up at the party for me I didn't have to go get him (like that would be happening at 2:30am with a baby now anyway - can you say Taxi?!). I literally laid in bed with my mind racing and was WIDE awake. I could not sleep for the life of me. I couldn't figure out since I thought I was tired (normally I'm zonked out every night by 11pm at the latest). I was wide awake until John got home after 2 and after he filled in on all the stories and we had some laughs he was sawwing logs while I was still wide awake. Wide.Awake. Forrest also chose this night to be up every 2-3 hours which was odd for him and of course a cruel case of irony for mommy. Didn't really matter since I couldn't sleep anyway. It was close to 4am by the time I fell asleep and then little man was up at 6am. I thought I was going to die. My awesome yet hungover hubby surprised me by jumping out of bed to get him. He knew I hadn't been able to sleep at all and also knew we had a bottle of milk that I had pumped just hours earlier in the fridge so he got up with him and fed him and played with him. I was shocked and sooooo thrilled! It was so sweet of hubby to do this for me without even having to ask! LOVE him! The next day it dawned on me that the barista at Starbucks must not have given me the DECAF skinny caramel mochiato that I ordered and gave me the regular caffienated version which would be the only explanation for my night of awaful sleeplessness. Since she was only very young I am going to assume she doesn't have a baby of her own...but for that awful night I am going to wish upon her a week of sleepless nights when the time comes that she does have a baby! lol
The next day we had a quiet family day in! It was raining all day so we were pretty bummed we couldn't even go for a walk. Jimmy and his girlfriend Shauna came over for a visit before heading back to Moncton! They brought Forrest the cutest little outfit for summer (stayed tuned for pictures). It was very sweet!! Now it's another 'work' week and John is back at er! We're looking forward to another weekend with him off and hopefully some nicer weather! Oh and...in only a couple of weeks we'll be doing our first ever family road trip. Stay tuned...
Until then, here are some pictures:

|Uh Oh Jimmy-I think someone is moving in our your lady...better watch out, you've got some competition ;)|
|The items that John's buddies so generously gave us!|
|Daddy thought this was funny and had to snap a picture...I have to admit I got a laugh out of it too!|
