Ada and May

They were so darling together. How is it that I only got one sort-of-decent-ish picture of them?

throwing coins and making wishes

All of the other pics looked like this. Grotesque rabbit faces and claw hands. haha.

Cherry Blossoms

We headed out to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens yesterday morning to check out the cherry blossoms. They did not disappoint.
Ada reminded me of a hobbit on an epic journey (must have been the "walking stick"). And yes--I'm a dork (and proud of it) for throwing out that reference.

The Most Exciting Post Ever

Sometimes when Kyle has a day off, we rent a car and go hang out with all of the tacky people at the outlet mall (and a chain restaurant. When in Rome... But I won't admit which one).

This about made Ada's day. It's Lowly's apple car!!

Water break. Ada is starting to have very strong opinions. That hat was one of her better ones. We also picked up her first princess-themed merchandise (a learning kit). She INSISTED.

The whole family together in a car for the first time ever.

2 minutes later...

I know, I know. Try not to die of excitement.

Sunday Morning

yesterday morning

Could someone please tell me who taught my child how to sing Jingle Bells? I sure didn't. And why is she just now pulling it out of her repertoire?

Ada and her dad having way too much fun at church today. Whatever keeps them entertained, right?

And Joseph's still here (and looking uncharacteristically serious). I think I might be getting my brown-eyed child after all.

Ada Goes Super-Girly

I finally broke down and bought Ada some (non-themed) dress ups. I figured it was time to round out her train/car/ball/animal fixation. I'm pretty sure everything will be ripped and broken in a few days. Oh--and an entire dress will be going directly in the garbage. Too glittery--we've got a strict no glitter policy. Once you have it in your house you will ALWAYS have it in your house.

Why do they have to be so cheap? Is the only way to get quality to make them yourself? Maybe that will be my summer project while I'm at my folk's house.

The best part was Ada tap dancing around the apartment in those awful plastic shoes. Video.

I think the maroon socks and the skinned/bruised knees really set the outfit off.

We headed back to the Conservatory Gardens this morning. We'll have to make yet another trip out to try and get some better pics..

Easter Redux

I knew that I couldn't do the Easter Egg Hunt justice (so I didn't even try). Check out more here.
There is a photo of Ada hitting the pinata floating around somewhere. I'll have to post it when I get it.

We were lucky enough to get invited to an amazing easter egg hunt blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah


the calm before the storm. Ada had no concept

and they're off!

Ada got to work. You've never seen a more focused child. She had such an obscene amount of booty I had to re-hide half of it.

After spilling rice all over herself during dinner--"I'm a mess!"

I was going through the pics Lesley took and stumbled upon this one. How did I not notice it before? Probably because Lesley managed to get so many beautiful shots of Ada. Real talent that one.

This Is How We Roll

It's HERE!!!

And just in time for all of you expectant mothers looking for the perfect name for that little bundle of joy (and please check out the previous years installment for even more inspiration).

This has nothing to do with Ada and Joseph (except that their names probably don't appear on this list), but I have to spread the word.


My younger sister is pretty much brilliant.
