Some Firsts

We had lots of firsts this past week.

1. We had our first official outing as a family to Wyatt's first college basketball game! He sat with us through the whole thing and looked around with his wide eyes. I don't think he even really cried once (just a couple hungry whimpers here and there). He must like basketball.

2. Derek and I had our first date without Wyatt. Derek planned the whole thing. We dropped Wyatt off at my mom's, then we stopped and got a Starbucks and then Derek took me shopping. After that we saw "Tangled" at the dollar theater, and topped off the afternoon with a bit more shopping and a Dairy Queen!

3. Derek pointed out that our date was the first time I've been anywhere without Wyatt in 10+ months - I hadn't thought about it that way, but it's true! I must say, I had slight separation anxiety, and even though I hoped he was doing okay with his grandma and aunt, I kind of hoped that he missed me a little bit too.

Already scrunching when Mama kisses his cheeks. Get used to it, Kiddo - it's not stopping anytime soon! (Actually he was upset about the wind, not my kissing him - just thought I'd clarify.)

4. I went clothes shopping for the first time since Wyatt was born this week. It was pretty fun to go into a normal store and buy normal clothes and have them actually fit again. Derek let me spend $55 on eight new shirts, two new layering tanks, a skirt, and a pair of shorts (my wardrobe needed a pick-me-up). I thought that was a pretty decent amount of stuff for $55, so I was pretty happy! Here are a couple of my finds:

5. Wyatt wore shoes for the first time. And I am in love with his adorable little feet:

See what I mean?

But I am even more in love with his adorable little face! This is my new favorite picture of my little man.

He looks so mischevious! It cracks me up.

6. And the big one . . .

Wyatt went six hours between feedings on Saturday night - which translates into five straight hours of sleep for me and Derek. This is clearly a milestone! If he keeps this up we'll be sleeping through the night before he turns two months old. Hey, a girl can dream, right?

Snoozing in his car seat - it's so funny the positions he likes to sleep in.

Good for y'all for making time for a date! That's the one piece of advice I keep getting from mothers - make sure you & hubs make time for each other.

And good job Wyatt for being such a good sleeper!
