First of all I am still headed up the roller coaster for this I am grateful! Another good week and I fully appreciate the good days.
Friday-Brian went to the Mariners v. Red Sox with my brother and our friends Megan and Jason (I don't really get into sports too much). They were all rooting for the Red Sox (Brian is from Maine). I feel like it is sacrilegious to root against the home team, but then again I don't care about sports so whatever. Red Sox won...good I think! My sister and I met up with friends at my favorite happy hour place, Puerta Vallarta mmmm cheap Mexican food! I spent the rest of the night at home like a bum on the couch catching up on the dvr (this was not sad induced, just felt good to relax).
Saturday-Spent the day running errands while Brian was at work even gave Annie a bath, I love the way this lab feels after she is all clean and silky. Also got my car washed and some other boring things that felt good to get crossed off my list.
When Brian got home we headed out to meet up with two of the couples from our child birth class and their babies for a BBQ. These two couples have stayed friends with us and their support is much appreciated. Addison was born in the middle of the two babies so it is fun and sad, but mostly fun to see their personalities and see where they are at developmentally. We miss out on SO much, so it is nice that we were able to maintain these friendships. It brings some kind of weird comfort to see what are lives SHOULD be like. Plus I really like this group of parents!
Sunday-Family reunion no. 2. I was really worried about it since the first one went so well...figured the last one may be more than I could handle, but it wasn't. No one said anything dumb, but mostly people didn't ask about Addison. I suppose I didn't really give them much of a chance. I stayed close to people I know that knew our story and the people who I wasn't sure about, I held my distance. It was like I didn't want to give them the opportunity to say something dumb...I don't know, I felt weird and anti-social, but the people who knew were wonderful and there was a lot of hugging going on!
Brian was "amazing" or so I keep hearing. He was the guy in the water, taking kids for rides on the jet ski and letting them use him as a human jungle gym. God, he is good with kids. Everyone kept telling me how great he was...something I already knew, but it's nice other people noticed. He was so wonderful with all the kids. As much as I love watching him with them, it breaks my heart that he isn't able to do all these fun things with Addison.
Sunday was also my good friend Kayla and Matt's 1st wedding anniversary. Happy anniversary to some wonderful friends...how I wish we could go back to that amazing day when I was the big fat pregnant bridesmaid! Good times!
