"and the hardest part was letting go..."


saturday night brad and i went on our first official date since becoming parents. we left reesey with aunt shanea and went to the coldplay concert.


the concert was AWESOME! i hadn't been to a high profile concert in a long time and it was totally worth the money! they put on a breathtaking show. it must be amazing to know that you are making so many people happy in one night. i wish i was a musician. they were really cute and humble saying things like, "i hope everyone has a good time tonight for whatever you are missing tonight." it was funny. at one point the band ran off the stage and went in the stands and played a couple of songs, chris (the singer) played the harmonica and the drummer sang. it was unexpected and enlightening. brad and i had a great time getting out of the house and away from our daily routine. it was like a taste of life before baby, but i loved getting home to our little reese and squeezing him.



we went to the doctor yesterday and got him weighed and he is a whoping ten pounds nine ounces! he is growing like a weed and changing so much. he coo's when he is happy and makes the cutest noises when he is eating. he has also mostly been sleeping in his crib. it's nice for us cause i think brad and i both sleep better without his little grunts and snorts right next to us in the night. sometimes he can't calm down though and he ends up sleeping the rest of the night in the bed with us. i love snuggling with him. brad has been so awesome, even though he has to get up for work he helps out with reese in the night. he will get up with him to get him to sleep when i have been up and can't take it anymore. he is a good daddy.

Little babies make grownup beds look so big! Sometimes I think Kylee could get swallowed up in our bed.

Way to go!! I can't remember how long it took us to take our first night off. I know it was way overdue by the time we finally did. It is good to get away every once and a while!

Hey, we went to that concert too. I cant believe we didn't see you there being it was cozy backyard type party. That was a joke btw, incase you didn't get the funny behind it. It did rock! Best concert I have been to in 8 years. (also the only one but who's keeping track.)
