It's a good thing we went shopping
Remember that shopping spree that we went on last weekend, buying Logan a whole new wardrobe? The timing couldn't have been better. He is in the midst of another growth spurt. All of the moms were talking about how he looked bigger at playgroup this week. He's been sleeping all day & all night. He's been sleeping for almost 4 hours this afternoon. He slept for 12 last night. At this rate, he's going to wake up to be the size of a 12 year old.

Last night we went on anther Date Night. It was a lot of fun. The babysitting co-op (that I'm a co-coordinator of) organizes a Date Night once a month so everyone has the opportunity to spend time with their significant other without worrying about their kiddo & how much it will cost, because it's free. It's just getting started & I couldn't be happier that we have this service available to our club.

Bill & I went out for dinner (at a place that I'd never go back to again) & then went bowling. It's been forever since we'd been bowling & we had a great time. We were placing bets on who would win & the loser had to get up with Logan in the morning. Every time I bowled crappy, I joked about how it looked like I would be watching Jo-Jo's Circus or The Wiggles (or any other kids show that we totally hate). We got some good laughs over that (things that only parents would think of as being funny). Bill ended up kicking my butt.

After bowling we went out for ice cream & then left to go pick up Logan. Logan was on his best behavior & did really well at his friends house (along with 5 other kids there). After the other moms came by to pick up their kids, I stuck around to talk to the Date Night Host & Assistant to get some feed back about how the night went. Apparently, there was some drama.

One of the newest members of the club dropped her two kids off, without even introducing herself. She had never met the other two moms before & not only did she not introduce herself, but she didn't leave any detailed instructions about her kids. Her youngest is 10 months old & is still drinking from a bottle. She didn't explain anything about feeding or her usual bedtime...nothing. This baby ended up crying uncontrollably for 30 minutes. The Host & Assistant thought that she was just exhausted & up way past her bedtime (pick up was at 9pm). So, I ended up emailing a report to the other co-coordinator when I got home & we talked for awhile this morning too. We have a co-op meeting next week & we're going to address some more rules & regulations (like, inform people of infant feeding instructions & if your infant can't handle staying up past their bedtime, it would be a good idea to stay home), among other things. It should be an interesting meeting, to say the least.

Other than that, it was a successful night & we had fun. I'm glad Logan has been sleeping all day because I'm feeling exceptionally lazy too.

Woo growth spurts all around!! What's his latest height/weight measurements at?

I fear Kira has not only shot up, her feet have shot out. It's possible I may have to invest in yet MORE shoes for her. LOL. Oh, and more pants of course because clothing makers believe girls are short things with teeny legs and tall, leggy girls are non existent. :\

Glad you had a great time! I would love to go out on a date with the hubby sometime. I can't believe someone would leave their children without instructions and what not. I would have a list a mile long to make sure my kids were gonna be happy and content.

Erica-
I have no idea where's he's at for height, but I think he's about 22-23 lbs. He likes to stand on the bathroom scale before he jumps in the tub. He goes in for his 18th month check-up in about 3 weeks or so.
