Last weekend we packed up and headed to our friend Dan's house. Dan is actually my best friend's brother. He and his roommate let us all move in for the night and the dudes held down the fort with the kiddos while Angie and I rocked out to Billy Joel at the Target Center. It was SUCH a good concert. Besides the surprise opening act of Gavin DeGraw, Billy Joel sounded awesome and he.was.hilarious. Very entertaining, great music, played everything we hoped to hear, and a much needed night out with my pal. Sorry for the junky concert photos, I'm too lazy to upload the actual videos. Maybe someday when I'm bored (HA!).
From what I hear, bedtime could have been better (there was a barking dog/baby waking incident and Myra has been very independent with bedtime especially "Myra to do it!") but really the night went very well. We all slept in one room which was confirmation that we should not be doing such a thing. We have never bed shared with either kid and Myra has never even slept in our room. Neither of us is a huge fan of having Niko in our room, but it makes the most sense for right now. So, having all of us in one room is definitely new. Luckily, we had a pack and play for each kid and spread them apart as much as possible. Niko slept well, woke up to nurse twice but let us sleep in until after 8 (close to 9??). Myra did fine, too, except when she did her usual tossing and turning at night (typically no big deal and she falls right back asleep on her own), she realized we were in the room and wanted to chit chat. "Hi Mommy! It's Niko!"
And, for funzies, some random photos from the last week:
