Mine and Will’s first night out without Lily

Saturday night Will and I had our first night out without Lily.

We were invited to our friend Juan’s birthday party that started at 8:30p.m.. We thought about bringing Lily but decided to ask uncle Darren if he would babysit instead (he has been eager to do so). Not only would it end up being past Lily’s bed time but also, we needed some Will and Claudia time.

Before we left, we bathed, fed and put a very tired Lily in bed. When uncle Darren arrived, we slipped out the door.

On the way down in the elevator, Will and I both looked at each other and let out a long breath. Ok, here we were, out for the first time alone  since Lily had been born.

It felt a bit strange and like we were missing something while we walked over to the restaurant but, soon after getting there and ordering the first drink, all was good.

We checked with uncle Darren via text every now and again and all was good at home with him and Lily as well. She had only gotten fussy in her sleep once and uncle Darren had it all under control with a little back rub and humming.

It was a fun night out and even though both Will and I missed Lily, it felt great to be out on a date! 😉

Here are Will and I with our friends out on saturday night.
