Thanks for the good wishes about Norah's cold; she already seems better today. Still a bit boogery, but it doesn't interfer with her sleeping or eating, so that's good. She never ran a fever, the boogers were never green, and like I said, her sleeping and eating weren't interrupted, so we never called or went to the doctor. But she has a regularly scheduled appointment on Thursday, so I'll mention then that she was sick.
But sick or not, our friends volunteered to watch her last night so Jerry and I could enjoy some time to ourselves (thanks again Erin and Ryan!), so we went out to dinner to a new restaurant, and we had a wonderful dinner. Initially, it was tough for me to leave Norah, even though I know she could be in no better hands, but I was brave, and it was good to have the time with just the two of us: We had a really awesome dinner and it was nice to be able to eat together at a relaxed pace where we could actually take our time and talk to each other.
Then, afterward, we returned to Erin and Ryan's to find a very content Norah, and we gave her a bath there, and then once she was jammied, we all played some radical Rock Band: Beatles. Norah didn't want to go to bed; she wanted to rock! So, she stayed up for the show, and we rocked out, and I have to say, the Beatles version is awesome! So, we had a lot of fun playing that, then we sat on the porch for a bit and had drinks and chatted while Norah still refused to go to bed.
Needless to say, she was a tired baby when we went home and she conked out in the car right away and then slept one of the best nights she's ever had (in fact, it's 9 am right now and she's still sawing logs after I fed her at 6:30!); I guess babies love to hear Mom and Dad rock out some Beatles tunes!
All in all, it was a very nice evening out with the perfect blend of time alone for Jerry and I and time with friends. I think we really needed a night like that.
Now for today, we plan on a very lazy Sunday filled with an afternoon of laying on the couch watching football, and I plan to run again this evening once it cools off. Hope everyone else is enjoying a nice weekend!
