Fall festivities!

November 6, 2008

Last weekend was Halloween and my birthday. Two parties in one weekend – unheard of these days for me! (And, for more photos of the event, including some of the Apostles Church women’s retreat in the Poconos, click here.) Friday night for Halloween we took the train with our friend Julie , whose husband Chris […]

This crazy birthing business!

October 29, 2008

Wow, it’s been 2 weeks since I posted! They’ve been busy ones. Dave moved in. Jack came to visit. I went on a women’s retreat with church in the Poconos and had an awesome time (and meant to post the photos, but haven’t yet taken them off the camera). Evenings out with friends. Exhausted. I’m […]

New Registry and Doctor’s Visit

October 15, 2008

So we decided we much prefer a crib that we found at Target.com. I was already thinking of starting a 2nd registry there because some things are less expensive. They also just updated the Babies R Us site, so it looks better but is often down, and takes way to long to load pages, so […]

Belly shots!

October 12, 2008

All right, finally found the camera cord and can post belly shots of recent days, in my 26th week of pregnancy:

Bedroom sets

October 9, 2008

I got an email last night that the original bedroom decor, “Giggles”, I’d been wanting, is now in stock, so I jumped on it and ordered the bedding set, valances, and diaper stacker. However, if I get them and decide it doesn’t look right (and I have 3 months to do so, which is lovely), […]

The joys of registering

October 7, 2008

If you walked by me now, you’d probably laugh at how bleary-eyed I am – at least one guy did when he said “good night!” and it took a good 30 seconds to respond. That’s because I’m still working on registering for baby at Babies “R” Us, and I couldn’t possibly be more overwhelmed! Actually, […]

Back to Baby

September 29, 2008

I haven’t actually blogged about baby for a bit, being that we’ve been all-consumed in our trip to Jamaica and then moving to Queens. But baby is doing great! Definitely kicking these days, still at somewhat random times of the day, though I may start writing down when it happens for myself. For a while […]

Moved in

September 29, 2008

We did it. Somehow we always do. But after this weekend, Jason has made the edict that we will raise three children in this apartment, somehow smuggle in a dog for its lifespan, and die here. Never moving again! I predict that as long as we’re in NYC and have no more than 2 young […]

Our new ‘hood: Astoria

September 24, 2008

I’m stealing this video from my friend Julie, so parents can see a bit of the neighborhood we’re moving to. This is from Travel Channel’s show No Reservations, and they’re hitting up The Kebab CafĂ© (Astoria is known for it’s large Greek population and restaurants). It looks pretty freaking amazing. I’d have Julie and Chris […]

Moving, Ikea, Target, Dogs in Costumes & Ninja Cats

September 24, 2008

Currently I am OD’ing on Red Hots. In response to a previous post, in which I mentioned I couldn’t find the right kind of animal cookies (Keebler’s) or Red Hots candies ANYWHERE in NYC, my amazing mother-in-law sent me a box loaded with both. For the baby, of course. God bless her! OK, since I […]
