Carson's 13 week birthday celebration didn't include him. Although we love our little man to pieces we needed some time for the two of us. I was excited for an occasion to wear more than sweats and a T-shirt with spit up on it. AND I finally am fitting back into my clothes! We went to a very nice restaurant called The Vintage Tavern. It was beautiful and lodge like inside. So cozy! Jeff commented almost halfway through the dinner that we were able to talk about other things other than Carson for about 45 minutes. Oh, how our lives have changed with this little man! It was so nice to just sit and be and not have to feed him while we're trying to eat dinner. We would love to try to go out just the two of us at least once a month. A great thing was that I didn't feel guilty at all for leaving him. One, I knew he was in good hands with Pops! And secondly, I crave alone time with my husband. It has been an adjustment for everyone with me staying at home with C-man and Jeff starting a new position and working some longer hours. I believe we are better parents when we take time to spend on our marriage. I am so grateful for my husband. He is an amazing man and a wonderful father. I can't get enough of both our family time and "mommy and daddy time."
