First Date... Again

Some of you might think I'm a little crazy, some of you probably think I'm a fruitloop, some of you might think I'm just plain pathetic. But, I have major separation anxiety with Zayde. Therefore, Zack and I just went on our first date last night since Zayde was born 10 months ago. Yeah for me!! There have only been two other times that I have been away from Zayde, and they were both for educational training for my preschool. My mom has been asking me for months when her and dad were going to get to keep Zayde, and her wish finally came true last night. Zack's birthday is Saturday, so I surprised him with a date night for his birthday. (I am going to be out of town all weekend, so I will miss his b-day on Saturday.) We had a wonderful time together and enjoyed Seafood at a new restaurant called LouLou's, Christmas lights on the square, and coffee at Arsaga's...


We were so excited and ready to go! I didn't even cry like I did the other two times that I've been away from him.



Papa and Nana were so thrilled to be able to finally keep him!



Mama kissing her baby good-bye. Look at those gorgeous blue eyes! Can you blame me for wanting to be with him all the time?

LouLou's Restaurant on N. College Avenue...
Zack enjoyed crab cakes, appleslaw and french fries. I had a grilled chicken sandwich and hush puppies. Everything was delicious!


Lights on the Square... We didn't get out of the Jeep, because it was waaaaay too cold. I also forgot our coats, stocking caps, scarfs and gloves.

Horse and Carriage Rides...




...Camel Rides



Toy Soldiers...



After eating dinner and driving around the Sqaure, we decided to go to Arsaga's for coffee and dessert. We had this delicious caramel, chocolate cheesecake and our favorite coffee's.


Amy enjoying her White Chocolate Mocha!



Zack reading a newspaper... It was so nice to get to sit, relax and just enjoy each other's company. We used to go sit at coffee shops and talk for hours.



And this is how I found my sweet baby boy when we picked him up. Nana said that he was so good and she can't wait until next time! (I can, ha ha)

Woo Hoo! I know you had fun! I'm sure Zack enjoyed his one-on-one time with you. I'm proud you did so well, Amy! I know it was bittersweet for you. We saw the lights last night too! We didn't get out of the car either. We went to Hobby Lobby and and out for Mexican. It looks like you had fun!

That's great, Amy! I bet you all had a blast. There's nothing like "dating" your husband..again.
Gary and I are trying to squeeze in as many things that we can't do with a baby before ours is born!

What a sweet time you and Zack had, as well as Zayde with his Nana and Papa. That makes fun memories! Zayde is such a good baby. You can tell he has a mommy and daddy that really love him.

Its good that you got a date. It will be easier to leave him when he's older. And one day, he'll be so busy, you'll be trying to talk him into going with you places. There's a season for everything, even kids!!

Congrats Amy! It sounds like you did very well. I know we were talking before about how hard it is to leave them. Tayson is 10 months old too and the only times I really leave him are either to go to work or to go to Razorback football games, we just recently had our first "date" night again! Hopefully it will get easier!
