Apartment Tour: Part Uno and Parenting FAIL

view from the door. My favorite part of the room is the crib and mobile.

Snot-faced. Ada's favorite part of her room is the sheepskin rug.

Ada is miserable. This is the first time she's really been sick and I've never taken care of a sick baby before. It's really not that much fun. Sad that she won't cuddle even when she doesn't feel well. I figured that would be our only opportunity for that. She's currently taking her 4th nap of the day. It's sunny for the first time in a week and we've been stuck inside all day. The joys!!!

P.S. Almost forgot. I tried to take Ada's temperature for the first time ever. I had everything laid out, the thermometer lubed up, Ada across my lap...and I just couldn't do it. PARENTING FAIL. Maybe Kyle will be able to stomach it? I was doing ok until I ran across the line in the directions that said "Stop if you feel any pressure".

Babies, Babies, Babies

Trying to get a picture of three little girls. Absolute mayhem ensued. May, Ada and Norah.

The Life

This is my life now--head bumps and all. I usually try to get Ada's attention by treating her like a dog.

In other news, Ada's bald spot is starting to fill-in.
Old man be gone!!

Pseudo Spring

The weather has been amazing--70s and sunny. There's nothing better than NYC in the spring. Though March is such a tease (this week is rainy and cold). But we did manage to have just about the best week ever. Walks, picnics, park going. Only one picture to document.

The open-mouthed smile is sort of Ada's thing.

And So It Begins...

Sorry to go all "Blair Witch Project" on you. Hopefully it doesn't make you too nauseous. She started crawling yesterday for the sole purpose of cornering the cat. Yoko's life will never be the same. The best part of today was when she came and found me in the kitchen instead of crying in the living room like a big baby. Ada is thinking she's a pretty big deal. Enjoy.

Cat Face

Yes--that is my child licking the cat. Yes--Yoko is very patient. And could someone please explain to Kyle that Yoko is a great cat?

My apologies for the terrible photo quality about to ensue. We can't all be semi "professional" mommy blogging photographers.

At 7 months, Ada is getting increasingly frustrated by her efforts to crawl. She's so close and you can just see her mind working. She whines because of this... A LOT. She can move into a sitting position and out of it from a crawling stance. She's basically awesome.
The end.

Ada + Pool = Awesome

Or maybe Ada + bathing suit = awesome. Ada went swimming for the first time in her short life today. She LOVED it. She took to the water like a crazed guppy. Just like I thought she would. She spent half the time trying to squirm away from me--this kid is independent--definitely her own little creature. All ready to swim away and leave her sad little mommy behind...
