in less than a week, conrad will turn two years old. i don’t really want to talk about it just yet, because i’m a selfish mama who already feels like the last two years went by way too fast (besides the night shifts. which i also don’t want to talk about).
i’m so thankful for this little boy. he makes my heart burst, and it has been special to get to spend some one on one time with him this fall when his older sister and brother are away at school. being the third child, alone time can be hard to come by it feels like, even when we try to prioritize little one on one dates with the kids. we spent a little time at the natural history museum yesterday morning with papa, too, who took some pictures when we were in the space wing.
also, i wore my sparkly glitter shoes. because, why not. :)
love when he points up, but refuses to let go of his bagel. he’s my new york baby through and through, and it makes me proud to see how well he’s held onto that title. examples– could hail at taxi by 9 months old, doesn’t flinch at the sight of a cockroach on the sidewalk (he loves holding the hissing cockroaches at the museum, did you see this video josh posted of him holding a stick bug the other day??), willing to ride the subway, but prefers to walk everywhere (and not ride in a stroller), and smiles and says “hello” to strangers on the street regularly (my favorite sign. because i have often found new yorkers to be the kindest of strangers).
it just felt appropriate.
this space wing is one of my favorites in the museum. it’s also a great spot to get lots of running wiggles out since the pathway loops round and round a bit.
touching everything and saying “wooooowwwww!”
i just bought this backpack (you all know how much i believe in the mom backpack!) and conrad loved pulling down the pocket that looks like a monster’s mouth and pretending the monster just bit his finger! he laughed so hard every time.
when your child won’t let go of your shoes and thinks it’s funny when you try to take them away… i don’t know, we must have played this little game for a solid couple of minutes because he just though it was the funniest. it’s the most simple and silly of games that are his favorite, and i’ve just learned to try to roll with the punches and go with it. makes the day less stressful for all of us.
such a fun little outing with my littlest baby boy, who’s not so much a baby anymore but you know. let’s go with it. have a great festive weekend, you guys! it might snow in new york on monday and we are all READY!
sparkly glitter heels (they are only €37!)
blue monster face backpack (i love that it’s less than $50. beats the fendi monster backpack that all my dreams were made of until i saw that awesome fendi price tag! lol.)
