Slowest Week Ever

This week is creeping along... When will it be next Wednesday?

William and I had an evening out together -just the two of us! We hadn't been out since April, and I'm betting it we'll just have to enjoy our time alone traveling to Ethiopia for our next date!

We ate bison at Ted's Montana Grill. Of course, there is a HUGE bison head on the wall (appetizing, I know!), and when the family before us walked in, their little guy pointed and exclaimed, "Oooooh!! It's the big, bad wolf!!!" Too funny. We breathed a sigh of relief not to be seated near them since it is usually our bad luck to be seated near children (loud ones, usually) when we've made the effort to find another place for ours! (Thanks, Mema!!)

After Ted's, we got down to business and hit Target where we registered for things that we'll need for Benaiah. It has been 11 years since we have registered for a baby, and it is funny how the perspective changes when it is your 4th child. We not so naive to think that we need everything, and we also can't justify adding things that we think we won't be using for more children like we did the first time around.

Now, the whole bottle thing... We've not dealt with this much before, so we had to register for a lot of things that have made me cringe since joining The Militant Breastfeeding Cult years ago. I am going to try my best to get Benaiah to nurse, but that will have to wait until we get home and I sleep for a few days. In the mean time, he's got to eat something I suppose!

I hope Wednesday comes quickly for you. We'll be praying. I'm nervously excited for you.

Date nights are wonderful! I'm so glad you two were able to go out just the two of you.

With Love,

P.S. I finally have my "toilet phone". Yeah! I'll try to remember to post pictures this week.
