Halloween In The City

This is what Halloween looks like in NYC...

a little party we had at playgroup in the morning.

trick-or-treating along Broadway. In the broad daylight.

Then we headed over to 95th Street for a more authentic feel. The street closes off and residents decorate their brownstone stoops.
We were home by 7pm. Done and done. It was wild.

Ada as Elvis. Again

Yes. We're going the lazy route. But hey. I had to glue all of those rhinestones on by hand. Not worth it unless you make them wear it two years in a row, right?. And this baby boy? He'll probably be Elvis next year. Suck it Kyle.
(I found out last week that Megan had a Bedazzler all along. MEGAN!!!)

And OMG. Ada has changed so much in one year. Check it.

Ada loves to play music with her Dad. I accidentally stopped recording, not realizing that she just wanted to switch instruments (hence the two videos).

Fall Festivities

Not our pumpkin and not our dad, but hey! We're being festive! And we just might even take her trick-or-treating...

Thank you, Robert--for paying attention to our child so we didn't have to.

Ada on a Scooter

We were originally going to get her one for her birthday--due to her obsession with everyone else's on the playground. Then we decided we should wait until she'd be more trustworthy on it (you know, the whole scooting out into traffic issue). But then we found a deal we couldn't pass up, so here she is, in heaven. I see this thing getting annoying very quickly.

Oh. And a vote. Kyle says that helmet isn't gender-neutral. I bought it specifically because I thought it was. Hmmmm.


Kyle took the day off yesterday. It made me want to watch this movie again.
Ada was hilarious. That little roller coaster below? Ada was the smallest one on it by a lot (Kyle was the tallest) and she had to do it 5 times--smiled like a fool the whole time.

I had to include a pic of Kyle riding a carousel horse (it made my day). The lonely swing.

This is why there're so few pictures of me on this blog. Through the fence, Kyle? Really?

On the ferris wheel (which still creeps me out) and waiting in line.

We finished the day off right at the outlet mall, a huge Crewcuts haul and of course, dinner at a chain restaurant.

My Mom's been here all week (she left yesterday. Boo). We did a lot of stuff (Jean Georges, How to Succeed in Business, Max Brenner, Bronx Zoo, Ren Faire, shopping, shopping, shopping, Momofuku Milk Bar, Shake Shack, eating, eating, eating). Here are a few pics not documenting any of that.

A Glimpse In the Future

Ada looks about 20 here. I can imagine her sitting outside of a cafe with a scarf around her neck, casually propping her head up with her hand (though her wrist will probably be a bit more slender by then). And I swear we don't put lipstick on this kid.

First Haircut

Yep. We've made it this long. I wanted to cut bangs, but the lovely hairstylist pointed out what a terrible idea that would be, thanks to her cowlick and two crowns (genes inherited from me. lucky girl). So we went with sort of a side bang in an attempt to keep her super-fine baby hair out of her face for two seconds. It seems to have worked a little bit. No after picture--but just imagine her hair looking basically the same as it did before.

Ren Faire!

Honestly, it was kind of a bust--just a bunch of people selling crap. We did get a few prime pics though. Especially the beauty below...

It took her about 5 seconds to join the kiddie mosh pit gathered in front of the Irish dancers. She always has to be in on the action.
