a much needed DATE night!

hey everyone whats up?
Last night logan and i went out on a date, no Kason.
Seriously last time we did this was back in May.
And i counted lastnight, Kason has only been left with a sitter or family like 6 times maybe less.
its not that we dont trust anyone, or we dont want our alone time, its just Kason was easily portable. we could take him anywhere in his carseat and he would sleep through movies, dinner, etc. etc. but now he has out grown his seat and loves to talk, climb stairs, and play with anything he can get his hands on.
So it was nice to go out.
THANK YOU BROOKE!! my friend Brooke took kason for the night so we could do the typical dinner and a movie and it was AWESOME!
I got a giftcard from my Dad (thank you dad you are amazing) to go out and eat. We went to Olive Garden (my fav) and just had fun, no diets, no kiddo, just us.
I had my all time favorite there, The 5cheese ziti alforno. I get it with Alfredo sauce instead of the red stuff. the pic above is the chicken alfredo which is not what i had but still yummy. Logan had the never ending pasta bowl and has a few different ones and loved it. of course we had lots of BREADSTICKS!

another one of our favorite foods! :)
We then headed over to the Capital Mall and went to the movies. We wanted to see The Dark knight but we ended up staying too long at the resteruant and missed it, and the only thing on was THE ROCKER and i wasn't too excited. But we went ahead and got tickets and watched it, and i gotta tell you it was WAY WAY better than i thought it was going to be. It was so funny and just good ol non thinking movie to laugh at. and i really liked the music in it. I told logan i wanted the soundtrack and he agreed! so im sure that will be on our shopping list sooner or later.
The best part was that Kason was perfect for brooke, no crying, ate all his food, played well with her daughet and went to bed with no crying! yay Kason!
So we are going to make this a regular thing and switch off and on with Brooke and Rob and watch Breanna for watching Kason and then do it again!

need an update?

yeah so its been a LONG time oops.. sorry. gotten busy here.
lets see....
We have had some nice weather and i have taken Kason swimming ALOT. he loves it. We have gone to the Lake a few times as well as the pool. At the pool i have let him "swim" all by himself. Its the whole "natural swimming" thing. Babies are natural swimmers so i have been reading about letting them swim and they all say just let the baby go and they will bob down in the water and then float back up within seconds. So i tried the first time FULL of nerves and he did great and liked it. Since then we have done it a few times and he still does great and loves it. He kicks and tries to blow bubbles as well :)
We went to the zoo the other day. My friend Brooke came with us with her little Girl Breanna and the little guy she watches (Zach) we all had fun and Kason loved the playground they have at the zoo in Tacoma. our "train" of kiddos. Yeah we looked great! it was funny and kinda rude at the same time. We were walking back to the cars when some guy who passed muttered "do you think you have enough" i wanted to say NOPE I WANT 10 MORE! some people goodness! lolKason chillin in the stroller! He is getting SO big! Kason is 100% boy. Where ever we go he will always find a stick, bark, grass or a leaf to play with!He loves to climb the stairs so it was no surprise when he was all over this "rock" at the playground at the zoo. up and down and all around it!and of course a mommy and kason shot! i love it! so us.
So next week Kason turns 11 months... WHOA! he is getting so big!!!
things he does now-
-He was just weighed on Monday and he is 21lbs 14oz!!
-He moved up to a Toddler car seat!!
-Eats table food only now and loves it

First Hair Cut!!

Kason finally got his first hair cut! It was long, in his eyes and over his ears. He needed it bad. So i finally did it.
I wanted to give him his first hair cut, i know silly but i wanted to. so i did. We went over to my mom's so she could help me. It was hard because he kept moving all around and everything but i did get it done and it turned out pretty good. It looks way better now that is has already grown out a big and not so even. lol i know that sound weird but to me it looked like a took a ruler and cut across his forehead. lolI love this picture. I look nervous as can be and Kason looks scared like "GRANDMA DON'T LET HER!"All done! see not too bad! and it opens up his big beautiful eyes!
i will never give him another haircut though i will go get it done at a kid place! lol
