Date night

Last night after Erin went to sleep, Mike and I headed out to Carrabba's for a date. We each had a glass of wine and shared the two founder's platters. It was so delicious! Afterward we walked around a few stores in the strip mall and just enjoyed our time alone. We didn't even really talk about the kids until we were almost home! We had a wonderful few hours off duty.

When we got home, Erin was awake hanging out with my mom on the couch. I put her back to sleep at about 9:30 and she slept until 4:45am! I went to bed at 10 so I got almost 7 continuous hours of sleep for the first time since she was born. I put her back to sleep at 5:30 after a poop episode. All of a sudden at 6:30 Leah was calling "Help, help" in the monitor. Mike went in and Leah's lamp was on and her pajamas were off. I think she was trying to change her own diaper. :) Mike came back in and I thought he had redressed her. A minute later Leah was calling "Help, I am pee-peeing." Apparently Mike had put big girl underwear on her and left her in her room? So she peed behind her clothes hamper. We got her all cleaned up and let her wake Grammy up. I went back to bed and slept until Erin work up at 8:15! This was the best night ever!!!!!

Yay! Glad you got some sleep...and a date. Two good things.

I love date nights - and several consecutive hours of sleep! Luckily, we're past the "waking every 4-5 hours" phase at our house. Oh, wait! That's not true! They've started again now that Ella is in the "big girl" bed.

I am so envious of you two. You are so smart to have date night. Mark and I finally went on our 1st, since Jack was born, when he was about 19 months. It is just hard finding someone that I trust. Sounds like you 2 had a wonderful time. Carrabbas is the best!!! Glad you got some sleep too. I think it is cute how Leah kind of 'reminded' you that you are definitely parents in the busy stage.

Yay for your date night! I'm impressed you guys didn't talk about the kids at all. Sounds like a much needed respite for the two of you :) - Chelsi
