Wine Night

Those girlfriends of mine who I was supposed to meet out last night at Crescent Moon are probably curious as to the title of this post seeing as I how I never showed up.

I was supposed to meet a bunch of girls for a ladies' night out...I had been looking forward to it for weeks! I reminded Andy to get home on time because I had to leave by 7, and assured him that a wine bar was not a place for a baby when he asked if I was taking Graham.

I totally understand his apprehension....two kiddos on his own and around bedtime? Scary. Not that I didn't think he could handle it...he would be fine.

Well Andy did get home in time for me to go and was ready and geared up to take on his daddy duty...but.... I was EXHAUSTED. The thought of actually getting in the car and driving to the wine bar was too much....I know, pathetic.

But wine night still happened.

Andy suggested he put Addison to bed, I feed Graham and then pour myself a big glass and sit on the couch and catch up on my DVR'd shows. He would take Graham and I could just pretend I was at the wine bar off duty until 9:30....when I had told him I was going to be home.

Can I tell you how great it is to have a wine night out? Yes, I missed my girlfriends, but the chance to vedge out on the couch in my PJs, drink some wine and eat some jelly bellys while watching the biggest loser was just what I needed after a long day!

And it gets even better.....

Little man slept from midnight until 6am!!!! Six hours people! Huge improvement from the four times up the night before. I woke up when Andy's alarm went off and ran to check the bassinet to make sure he was still breathing! Breathing and sleeping away he was.

Could it have been that wine night was good for Graham too?

And now for a little bit of fun....

Addison absolutely loves playing around teasing Harley....
We took some time playing around with the camera yesterday. She loves it when I take the picture and wants to see it right away. I love those blue eyes...this may be why she sometimes gets away with more than she should.
and just another typical morning in the playroom....again, must have her hat and shoes!

I love that I am not the only one who sits in front of The Biggest Loser and EATS junk. :0) LOL. Sorry you missed your girls night, but your night sounded relaxing and great. Had to laugh at Andy asking if Graham could go to the wine bar.
And Addisons eyes are so blue they don't even look real in pictures. NO FAIR! She's a beauty.
