Girl's Night

I went on my first girl's night out since the baby! I've been slowly making some friends here and two of them happen to be my neighbors to the right and left. They mentioned earlier in the week that they were going to dinner and a movie, and did I want to go with? I was unsure at first because we had never given Penny a bottle before. But hey, no time but the present, right?

We tried the bottle on Tuesday and she took to it easily! I was set! So I pumped a bunch all week in preparation (she was only going to miss one meal, but I like to be prepared). By the time Friday came, I was ready.

I fed Penny, said goodbye to my little family, and went off! There were five of us in a little car, but it was fun. We ate dinner at a Mexican restaurant and then hit up the movies to see The Hunger Games. I have to say, that movie was MUCH better without a crying baby in my lap.

I didn't get home until past 11pm and was I tired. We ended up sleeping in a little bit this morning with Penny snuggled between us. I had a good time, though! I hope I can do it again, but not too often, I did miss my family.

A great story from last night. Brandon spent some time with the husbands and kids, and then he came home to put Penny to bed. After awhile he realized he hadn't seen the dog for awhile. He peeked in Penny's room and saw Dexter laying at the foot of her crib. He ran to grab the camera and managed to get a picture before Dexter jumped up. My sweet doggy, protecting his baby!


  1. Awww what a sweet puppy!! Sounds like you had a great night!

  2. those are such a must! but I agree it is hard to leave, Evelyns almost 9 months and I'm still debating on leaving her at points, at least she's in such good hands and loves her daddy!
    Thats soo cute of your dog to do that! What a sweetie!

  3. Awww! Sweet Dexy. ;-) I was drying my hair this afternoon and found Jasper in Charlotte's room when I was done. There's something about these dogs and babies!!

    Glad you had a girls' night! I don't know how I'll handle being away from Charlotte the first time. =P
