Spring

We headed over to the Central Park Conservatory Garden in hopes that the tulips might be in bloom (even though last year it happened the end of April. It's been a crazy warm spring). Nope. Not yet. I guess we'll just have to make another trip back.
Luckily the gardens are gorgeous pretty much year round.

I just pulled this book out of Ada's left over Christmas pile. Should have done it a lot sooner. She went crazy over it. NYC moms--buy it for your kids.

My Face Got a Little Sunburned Today

...and I had to wash Ada's hair 4 times to get all of the sand out. That's how you know it was a good day.

Today Was An Awesome Day

Started out with lunch at Westville. A quick jaunt over to Clementine for some consignment shopping (plus consigning). Around the corner to Cones for the best dark chocolate gelato in existence. Then off to the Children's Museum of the Arts. Finished off with an actual date with Kyle at Bar Boulud (thanks Mom!). I'd call that a fairly successful day.

Also--Jessie wanted proof that my child could smile. Here you go.

Ada at the Library

I think this is the fifth picture I've posted of my mom and Ada on a carousel together

Ada Today

And just so Joseph doesn't start to feel neglected on this blog...

Not that I think Kyle and I are are unattractive people, but holy crap! How did we make this?

Ada is upstaging me in all of these. I'm ok with that.

We've been having fun with Ada's mispronunciation of the word "bridge" (starts with "b" and rhymes with "itch").

"That's my bridge".
"Look! A bridge".
"Whoa. Cool bridge".


You get the picture. This has obviously been endlessly entertaining.




Love This One

He looks so newborny.

This might be the most perfect picture ever taken of Ada.

From Joseph's newborn shoot with Lesley. Lots and lots and lots more to come (like, obscene amounts).
At the Natural History Museum yesterday morning. I even brought my big camera and still only got crappy pictures.

waving "hi" to some dead animals

taking a dinosaur bone for a spin (I'm having a hard time wording this caption without it sounding really dirty).

Photobucket
floating t-rex skull!!

And if I was going to post a REALLY unflattering picture of my child, I'd post this one.

Photobucket

Haha. The more I look at it the more I laugh.

What? You don't walk around with a bag over your head, pretending to be blind?

(does the last picture remind anyone else of the best scene in Mad Men?)

Trains

We headed to the Transit Museum in Brooklyn Heights this morning. Here's Ada rampaging through Subway cars that date from 1907 to the 1950s. Really cool.

more planking


P.S. The baby is still doing well. He's happy and getting chubby (growing like crazy. He's already filling out his 3-6 month clothing). Also, he's still looking a lot like Ada did (though I think a more masculine version). He's been a dream baby so far (minus some random bouts of acid reflux). He's been smiling up a storm too. I'll get back to taking pictures of him when his baby zits clear up. Oh my vanity!!
