On Friday we drove to Montréal for a little overnight getaway. Montréal is about a two hour drive from Ottawa and before Lilah came along we used to go every once in a while. We just wanted a little break from our daily routine. Not to mention the city is well renown for it's shopping, especially Saint Catherine Street, right downtown, which is where we stayed. Lilah loved the little getaway as much as we did, she was too excited to have her regular midday nap on the drive there and has since been asking to go back to the hotel again! She had herself a nice double bed to sleep in and as long as she had her blanket, her piggy and her Bible, all was well. She doesn't normally have her Bible with her when she's in bed, ready to sleep, (just in case she rips the pages!), however she did have it this time and fell asleep holding it. She was fast asleep as I was heading to bed, so I took it from her tight little grasp. Well, she woke up around 2am, obviously she couldn't find it, she cried out and I went over to soothe her, thinking she might be afraid of the different room and bed. Not so, in a worried questioning voice she said to me "Bible?". She sure has a good memory.
