For my birthday this year, your dad got me tickets to see theater production of Disney’s The Lion King and back in June, when you were just three weeks old, it seemed forever away. We went to the musical last night while you stayed with a *paid* baby sitter for the fourth time in your life.
The show was amazing, especially the opening scene. It made me cry. The animals come to life through beautiful puppet-like costumes, masks and music. I kept thinking how much you would have enjoyed seeing all the different colors, lights and dancing.
It was really nice to spend some time alone with your dad, too and we tried our hardest not to talk about you, but somehow our conversation always drifted back to our favorite little topic. 🙂
Last night also marked the first time that you slept all night long! The sitter put you down at 7:30 and while you did stir a little at 2:00, you didn’t wake up until almost 6:00. Hooray!! The best part? After a full bottle, you went back to sleep. I am going to have to find out what the baby sitter’s secret is.
The best is yet to be.
