We went to our first kid party tonight. We were invited through one of A's work friends and had never met anyone at the party except for the guy that A works with. It wasn't too bad. T was excellent and even wore all of his costume most of the time. I was surprised that he was the only boy (except for a newborn wearing a very cute pea-in-a-pod costume). All the little girls had played together before so they mostly stayed together. He played by himself, mostly, all quiet in the bedroom. The other girls were out in the living room jumping off the couches and T was in the back bedroom talking on the barbie phone. I always forget how shy he is around other people. I guess we're both going to have to suck it up and learn how to make friends! He was amazing considering that we spent the morning at the Children's Museum and then he didn't take a nap.
This non-napping is the craziest thing. He ALWAYS naps. I seriously cannot remember the last time T didn't take a nap during the day. He is an amazing sleeper. He took two 2-hour naps until he was about 20 months old. He still takes a two hour nap and sleeps for 12 hours at night. A and I are exhausted. After T's non sleeping and holding a newborn that didn't even open it's eyes all evening, we're not sure that another newborn is right for us.
