First Date Night Post Baby

We were feeling pretty crazy the other night so we went on a date! We must have seriously been out of our minds, because we went to the movies on a Saturday night. AND we bought popcorn. So basically we spent a small fortune. But it was fun!



It was so strange to leave the house without Amelia. It definitely felt like I was forgetting something super important.  Within the first 5 minutes of the movie there was a weird alien mama holding a weird alien baby. They were only on the screen for a split second and I was like, "BABY! I want my baby! I miss her." But then we settled in and thoroughly enjoyed some Star Trek action.  The knowledge that we had the best baby sitters anyone could ask for eased the transition quite a bit.

Seriously. There is no better care then the love of grandma and her aunties. I don't think a single breath she took went unmonitored. It's so nice to have family close by.

So, we left the house without her, and when we came back she was just as sweet and happy as could be. She definitely didn't even know we were gone. Such is life.

Good for you guys!! We have never had family close to be those rock star sitters, so use them while you can! Cory's mom and sisters are so wonderful!

Hurray for much needed Lindy and Cory time! Amelia is super cute and awesome but I bet it was nice to just have a little night out on the town... or I guess at the really sad looking Tallahassee Mall. haha. Either way I hope you guys enjoyed yourselves!!
