It was 55 degrees so we went on our favorite walk across the north side of Central Park over to the Conservatory Gardens. A much appreciated beautiful day. We are back to the cold cold cold this week (and possibly more snow today). What a tease tease tease.
Child with tail.
Central Park was basically one giant run-off river--all that snow melting at once. We actually saw (dead) grass for the first time in months!
He was there. It's impossible to take pictures of him plus Ada on the loose since they run in opposite directions.
Ada had this entire last week off of school. I'm not sure what you're supposed to do with your kid inside all day in freezing cold weather, but luckily it warmed up at the end of the week. We got a sitter for Joseph on Thursday and went ice skating. Take away: she's still too young. She made it around 3 times and said "I'm done. This is too hard." Though I think she did as well as you could expect for a 4 year old. Unfortunately--this was the only picture I managed. I practically begged a woman standing on the other side of the rink to take a picture of us together. She took 15 pictures of our ice skates.
Buying her ticket for the carousel.
She's always so serious on these things.
Lunch and then a quick jaunt to the library for that children's book exhibit again.
One of those days that reminds you how much you love the city (much needed this winter).
My friend Kami's new little guy, Graham. He's already a month old and already pretty awake (and huge! He reminded me of my own babies)--BUT my first ever newborn pictures were, I think, a fairly good success. Especially considering the fact that these are all 100% artificially lit. Curse my side-street apartment/crappy afternoon light and bless you little speedlight.
Was there ever a more gorgeous new mom? I think not.
