What a rainy day in Portland! Today, Landon and I went clothes shopping around Portland today for Samuel, who just went through a growth spurt! We stopped at a fancy boutique in the Sellwood neighborhood called Spoiled Rotten, and got one pajama outfit & two toys for a total of $32.00, which was not a bargain! Then, we went to Children's Exchange, where we got four pairs of paints, 3 onesie-shirts, and 3 overalls all for 29.50!! What a bargain! With the rate this guy is growing, it pays to bargain shop--plus, it's more fun because there is more of a selection, and vintage clothes can be much cuter than brand-new. Hey, the way I see it, as long as it is functional & in good condition, I don't care what the brand is! Samuel is usually in and out of his clothes within about 8 weeks--he is a growing boy!

After our shopping trip, we dropped Samuel off at Mike & Susan's so we could go see a movie. After going out to dinner last night while Mike & Tracy babysat, we realized that we have not had enough time one-on-one since Samuel's birth! We saw Munich tonight, which was excellent, but very violent, realistic, and intense. The film was based on the book,Vengeance, by George Jonas (a Canadian journalist), which was in turn based on a narrative by self-described Mossad agent, Juval Aviv, that was never proven to be true by outside sources. The movie was inspired by true events, but some of the facts & character-names are incorrect. The basic premise, however, is true & this movie is definitely worth watching. Seeing this movie inspired me to brush up on my history, so I plan to read Massacre in Munich: The Manhunt for the Killers Behind the 1972 Olympics Massacre by Michael Bar Bar-Zohar.

So, that's about it for today, January 7th. Landon and I went out on a date for the 3rd time in 11 months! Samuel is doing GREAT at this time with being babysat. He even did great last night with Mike for awhile, which he isn't super familiar with. It is a good feeling to get out every once in awhile, and now that Samuel is ready to be separated from us, I'm hoping we'll get the chance to do it a little more often!
