Our First Date Night.

Jason and I are huge fans of date night. We have taken seriously the advice of friends and marriage mentors who have encouraged us to continue "dating" during marriage. This week we have taken advantage of Jason's mom being here and went on our first date night post-Alex. I fed Alex and we headed downtown, knowing we had about 2 1/2 hours before Alex had to eat again. We had no trouble handing him over to Grandma and calling, "see ya" over our shoulder as we walked out the door...

We ate sushi for the first time in 9 months, shared a cocktail (I promise this is ok for nursing moms!), and walked to a different restaurant for dessert. It was our own little new parent progressive dinner of sorts. So fun.

Hooray for date night!

Keep that up! Mark and I are also finding out that date nights are CRUCIAL to the survival of a new mom and dad. Glad to hear things are going well. We'll need to get Alex and Callen together soon!
