Take Me Out to the Ball Game

What a night! We went to a Baron's game last night and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. My company had a family night at the ballpark, so we decided to go since I had never even been to a baseball game there. Food was served at 6:00, and the game began at 7:00 - so we arrived at 7:00. As we were walking in, we saw many familiar faces leaving - they all had toddlers that they couldn't control and decided to go. We had Bennett in the baby bjorn, which is our favorite new thing, and she was asleep. In fact, she falls asleep in it so quickly from the swinging movement she must feel when inside of it. So, we mingled with a few co-workers, ate some bbq and then went and found a seat in the stands.

We ran into some friends, Jay and Tricia East, so we sat and talked with them. As I said earlier, the night was beautiful - no humidity, a slight wind and a clear sky! Bennett stirred once we got seated and she wasn't moving anymore so we took her out so she could look around. For the next two hours she just hung out - our perfect angel. I am so thankful that the Lord blessed us with an easy child. We get so many compliments from our friends telling us how lucky we are to have such a good baby, and we know it!
In the bottom of the 7th inning, Bennett started to get a little unsettled so we hit the road. When we got home we fed her the last bottle of the day and put her down at 10:30. This morning Steve and I awoke at 7:30 - before Bennett and Spencer!! It truly was a blessing to have a full night sleep without any interruptions. Considering how late it was, we immediately checked on Bennett, but she was fast asleep in the corner of her crib. So, we let her sleep and fixed ourselves some coffee and fed Spencer his breakfast. Steve and I alternated checking on her until she finally woke at 8:15 - almost 10 hours after she went down!! We knew she was tired since she didn't really nap much yesterday, but man 10 hours??
