The Many Adventures of Keira!

This is our page to document our family's adoption journey- starting from when we first started planning for our little one, to when we brought her home. We're also going to keep this updated with all of the things that Keira has been up to since she's been home with us here in the U.S!

Date Night

Dan and I missed the Summer Movies this year. Although, we have lots of friends and family that would love to watch Keira if we wanted to go out...all of you parents know how it is. You do sometimes need time to yourselves, but the best times are times as a family which Keira is-our family.

Lorraine has watched Keira in the past and Mom so graciously volunteered to watch Keira while Dan and I had a date night. It's the end of summer---would any of the big summer movies still be on the screen? Now, I HAVE seen a couple of the summer movies, but they were with Keira, so of course they were movies like Surfs Up and Shrek 3. What to see...what to see...Dan offered a couple of suggestions, but there was no WAY we were going to use up a precious date night on a stinker of a movie. The decision was made- The Bourne Ultimatum it was!

I can't even tell you the last time that we saw a movie on a Saturday Night! Wow! To all of you Saturday Date Night veterans, is it ALWAYS that packed at the movie theatre??? Yikes! We got there kind of early because we're freaks like that, but wow! I think this movie has been out for a while now and the theatre was still completely packed. So packed that unfortunately I got stuck sitting next to a man that was wearing a shirt that smelled like sour moldy rags. Everytime I would get used to the smell, he would shift in his seat, bringing the smell back. Wow--powerful...

To those that have not had a chance to see The Bourne Ultimatum- GO SEE IT! It was really good! I think that I even liked it better than the first two Bourne movies, although, you will be lost in the movie seeing the third one if you haven't seen the first two.

Date nights are great, but you know for a fact that the second I was walking out of the theatre, I was on the phone calling to see how Keira was doing... I really am a parent now.

By the way...wanted to make sure that we said a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Keira's Auntie Bee! Hope it was a good one! :)

Date night is good. We try to do that at least once a month. There were a couple of times the baby spent the night at the grandparents so Carrie and I can get an occasional unbroken sleep. Keep up the date night. I heard Bourne Ultanum was good as well.

Oh, date night. I'm so jealous. That was one of the pieces of advice that the girls' pediatrician gave us is to set up date nights. He suggested once a week. We couldn't find someone that often though. Enjoy the date nights, they are almost as precious as family nights.

Once a week??? Most people can get about a date night in once a quarter lol. I don't know if they have anyone there in Anza, but sometimes they have drop off sitters that will watch your kids for date nights. I'm saying this, although you are like me and probably wouldn't trust dropping the girls off with someone that you don't know.
Unbroken sleep is such a beautiful thing---and VERY needed sometimes!

Shay, that would be Dawn and I. We went out on a date last night. It was the first one in a long time. Her mom is in town visiting so we took full advantage of it. :)Dawn left me in the middle of our date, though.
