Every once in a while we are blessed to have Zach’s Nanny (Chris’ mom) come over and baby sit. She generally comes once a week and I go out to Walmart or the dentist or whatever, but this week Chris was home recovering, so we took the opportunity to go out on a date. Like real big people:)
We went to Grazie, our favourite Italian restaurant in Toronto. It had been so long since we had the opportunity to sit down and really enjoy a meal- so we went all out! We had brushetta and a lovely drink (pom martini for me, some weird wheat beer for Chris). I had Napoletana, which is linguine, shrimp and mussels in a tomato sauce. Delish!
Chris had Tosca (some type of stuffed pasta with a creamy tomatoe sauce and tons of ooey gooey cheese inside). Because we are wild, we also had chocolate cake and coffee for dessert!
It was so fun to hang out- and when we arrived home, our little man was in bed!! Nanny did a great job:)
As a side note, Zach decided he neither wanted nor needed a nap this morning. So I took him to Babyville (our mom and baby group). I thought he would be a terror but he was actually quite sweet and stayed awake for 99% of the time we were there. It was our last class and I’m really going to miss going- it was nice to talk to other Whitby moms and hear what they had to say! On the plus side, Big Z has now been napping for 1 1/2 hours….hopefully he’ll make up for his lack of nap this morning!

Okay….you two are officially the cutest couple with the cutest baby!!!
So glad you finally had your dinner out like a real couple again!
