weekend review

Eric and I went on our first date minus Mia on Saturday!! My parents couldn't wait to kick us out the door so that they could have their granddaughter all to themselves :) I knew I'd miss Mia, but I was excited to have some time alone with my man. Of course I had to get a picture of us just before we headed out...

And then I had to get a picture of Mia, who is totally mesmerized with her daddy in this picture. As soon as he started talking to her she focused on him and gave him a little smile :)

And then I had to get a picture of our little family because I love them so much! And I was already missing Mia.... ha ha!

Eric took me out for an early birthday dinner (I'm really hoping for special birthday treatment ALL week... ha ha!) to Red Lobster. I always love that place, but I couldn't really eat there while I was pregnant so I was way excited to eat there again. I may have eaten 6 of those ridiculously addicting cheesy biscuits in like 2 seconds :) And then my sweet husband took me shopping. He kept telling the employees in each store that he was trying to get me excited about shopping and new clothes again :) He really is the best and I'm so grateful he cares so much! I actually bought a pair of jeans, normal jeans. I can't remember the last time I did that! Yay, for packing up the maternity clothes and wearing my stuff again!
Other than our solo date night, our weekend has been very low key. But I guess that's how life goes when you're still adjusting to being parents! I can't wait for more adventures and to show Mia everything we love!

Such a cute little family :). Happy Birthday!

I'm always super impressed when I see brand new moms out and about. Maybe my memory is a little jacked, but at this point I feel like I was still wearing my own set of diapers and didn't leave the house until all of THAT stopped. Haha. It's healthy to have a date night every now and then, so good for you!
