We had a great weekend that got started on Friday morning! Rob and I had the chance to go see our new baby via ultrasound and have our first appointment with my normal OB. I was so excited to get to see our little one and find out how they were developing. The ultrasound tech found the heartbeat right away and it surprised me how quickly we could hear it. I will never get tired of that sound!
My mom came into town for the weekend and she arrived earlier than we expected, so Rob and I took full advantage of it and went out for a date night on Friday night! We went out to dinner and saw his grandparents at the same restaurant! Even though we had called ahead, it was completely packed. His grandparents ate separately from us and we ate at the bar, but it was still delicious. I am still recovering from some morning sickness (make that all-day sickness!) but I was so thankful I was able to eat a good chunk of my meal. :)
We tried to go see a movie afterwards, but it was all sold out. Maybe we will get lucky with another babysitter soon and get to see a movie! I am so behind in my Oscar moviewatching this year!
Saturday morning I woke up way earlier than I wanted. I just couldn't sleep! My mom and I tackled a few cleaning projects around our house like our baseboards and Henry's room. We made so much progress in such a short amount of time. Henry had a blast with his grandma being there, it was very cute!
During Henry's nap I watched the Louisville v. Duke game and even though I was really bummed out, I still love the chance to watch their games! My mom did a little antique shopping in town and Rob went out shooting with one of his new guns.
When Henry woke up, Rob and I were still getting ready for our date night, but Henry had a great time organizing my bottles of lotion and bars of soap under my sink. He doesn't really need toys--he loves playing there! He will stack everything up outside of the cabinet and then organize it all when he puts it up. :)
Rob and I had dinner reservations at a new restaurant in town, The Guild House. We had the best meal including this zero proof cocktail for me! I loved this option and thought it was just so delicious.
I have to tell the story of our awesome service here, because it really was unlike any other restaurant we have visited! The Guild House had only been open for 3 days when we went, so I was fully expecting there to be some snafus during our experience. However, I could not have been more wrong! Our server was top notch. He struck the perfect balance of being attentive without being overbearing, which I think can be difficult! He was also able to provide great recommendations when we were choosing between two dishes or trying to decide what to order for a certain course. He was also very versed in GF dining, which I very much appreciated!!
This would've made for a great dining experience, but one of the managers also stopped by our table to talk to us during our meal. We were talking about the new hotel going in next door and just having a casual conversation. The manager asked if we were celebrating anything special that evening and I let him know that we were having a baby, while our first baby was at home with my mom. He was so excited that we were out for a date night!
Rob and I split the most delicious dessert--a chocolate flourless torte with peanut butter fudge and a chocolate ganache on top. It was so rich and perfect. We could barely finish half of it together, but it was amazing!
When our server brought our bill to the table, he also brought a bag with an additional dessert for my mom as a thank you for babysitting for us. I could not believe how thoughtful everyone was at the restaurant and how attentive they were to us. Maybe it is because of my pregnancy hormones, but I definitely teared up because I was so touched at the amazing service and attention we received!
Sunday morning I had to get up early for a church service I was helping with. Rob and Henry stayed home because Henry took an additional morning nap! His second nap is very rare, but when he does want it we know he is tired!
Sunday afternoon while Henry napped, Rob and I watched the NFL playoffs and relaxed on the couch. I am back into knitting so I worked on that while we watched. In the evening, we went to visit some friends and have pizza together. My friend had several of her own baby's toys out and Henry was so excited for this playmat! I cracked up at how excited he was to play with it, especially because he had a hard time figuring out how to get his body into it!
We had such a great weekend and I am so thankful for the dates I had with Rob, as well as the chance to hang out with my mom and Henry of course. :) I hope you had a good weekend, too!
