Alex's 1st Movie

Our playgroup decided to "step it up" and start doing outings on the off week of playgroup. Our first outing was to Baby Day at Alamo Drafthouse (first show of the day on Tuesdays). I had been wanting to go for a while but was too scared to go at it myself and wondered how Alex would do. Well, he never ceases to amaze me. He did sooo well!! I brought him in the carrier and set it in the seat next to me so he could "watch" the movie. He was so enthralled and liked it so much he was actually smiling at times. He loves our TV so I am not suprised that he really liked the big screen! :) Of course he didnt last in the carrier too long but was content on my lap, with just a lil wiggle time. He only cried a little when he was ready for his nap and I actually rocked him to sleep! It was great! Oh, but he did knock my burger into my lap (those new lil grabby hands!) and the bottom bun went to the floor- who needs all that bread anyway! :) Overall, a great way for Mom to get to see a movie and get a good lunch in at the same time! The concept is great- all moms with their lil babies in the theatre, noone cares if your baby cries bc we all are used to it and we know that ours will probably cry in moment too! I reccomend it for all the moms out there!
We saw The Women, since we knew our husbands would never go. Poor Alex. Not really what your want your 1st movie to be as a lil boy. He is always surrounded by my girly intrests. Travis mentioned that maybe I could turn on a little sports center during the day every once in a while. :) I know that soon enough it will be Transformers, Spiderman, and whatever else boys like??, so I have to take advantage of the time I have when it doesn't matter. :)

Definitely enjoy this time...Brayden insists that I refer to him as 'Optimus Prime' when he's in his costume. There's no girlie time in our house anymore.
