Our friend Christine hosted a "Rock Band" themed birthday party this weekend for her husband Jarrod. Jeff and I had such a blast!!! It was one the first adult only parties we have attended since the baby was born and it was nice to get out of the house for a little adult mingling and adult beverages!!!!! I also had my first glass of wine in about a year which was heaven.
I have played Guitar Hero before but never in a crazy and fun competition as this! We all split up into teams of three and played our heart out. Unfortunately, Jeff and I had to leave the party early to relieve his parents of their babysitting duties so I never did find out who won.
I also had a great time catching up with my new friend and fellow blogger Heather. Heather and I met at Christine and Jarrod's clam bake this past fall. We were both pregnant with our little girls and both in our third trimesters. Needless to say, we had a lot in common and were the only sober ones at the clam bake.

Check out my guitar playing skillz!!!! I am the one in the back left corner. You can't really tell from the video but Christine, our drummer, is six months pregnant. I bet that baby was rockin!
The competiton was fierce!
Jeff and I were both pretty tired when we got home. I knew it was only a matter of time before Jillian woke up and would be looking for something to eat. Luckily for me, she slept until 4am!!! I was still pretty tired but thankful for at least a few hours of consistent sleep. I heard Jillian crying again at 7:30 and dragged myself out of bed to go get her. I was too tired to feed her in the glider, so I brought her back to bed with us and nursed her there. After she was done, I placed her inbetween Jeff and I and the three of us napped until 10:30! I just love family nap time.
