a few photos from my iPhone from the last week or so… it was a good one! there was an entire day in there called freaking mother’s day, and my kind husband likes to make it a mother’s day weekend, not just day, so i felt a little bit spoiled and loved extra the past few days. in fact, i think my kids were catching on, because at one point during the weekend, eleanor asked, “so, when is children’s day?!” i laughed so hard because sometimes i feel like every day is “children’s day” when you are a mother. sweet girl. ;)
ps. my red dress there is an oldie from anthropologie.
this chunky little dude is 5 months old this week. it’s just too much. he’s trying hard to get his legs under him when he’s on his tummy as he assumes the “crawl” position! he likes to scoot in that sort-of-pretend-crawl-phase and he is crazy vocal making the silliest and loudest sounds throughout the day. samson used to make this deep grunting fake laugh as a baby and i’m not kidding, conrad is doing the same thing! i don’t know where he picked it up. but it’s hysterical that both boys have done it.
birthday parties for little friends in central park never seem to disappoint. just look at that view! who needs streamers or garlands or any sort of party decor when you have that. am i the most annoying broken record when i keep saying how much i love this stupid city?
i know summer has not officially begun, but it was 80 degrees yesterday and the water fountains are on and we aren’t mad about it. it’s going to be a wonderful summer of mommy and conrad time as we watch E and S play.
on our way to sheep’s meadow after a delicious brunch at the smith on saturday! ps. we crammed all 5 of us into a photobooth. you can see it here. so silly. hardly any room in there, but we’re busy introducing conrad to what our family loves, and photobooths are high on that list. it’s almost like he knew what was up, too! it was a good time.
and also, my highwaisted cropped jeans are found here. most of the sizes are out of stock now, but more can be found here. i’ve been on the search for some jeans like these forever and i can’t even believe what a good fit these are.
more parties for tiny friends in central park, you see what i mean?! how cute are all those tiny firefighters putting out that pretend fire of colorful cups? and also i was walking a little ways behind josh on the sidewalk the other day as i pushed the stroller behind him. josh was carrying both boys like he is in this photo and as a few ladies passed him they started whispering to each other “that’s so hot! a dad holding babies…” as they walked by me. and i had to laugh! because it’s not just me that thinks this is IT. reminded me of this hysterical jim gaffigan preview for his new show, which i think i’ve talked about already cause i can’t help it. it’s my kind of humor and it’s what i find attractive.
across the table from me, sweetest little boy. and eleanor representing the davis family strong in an old shirt of josh’s that used to be his brothers before him. we do hand-me-downs right in this home. i love it.
sheep’s meadow with the family and also, my kids love when there are stacks of free newspapers around the city. they slide out of their stroller so fast to grab their own copies. the best is when they react to pictures and start telling stories of what they are “reading” around what the image looks like. samson occasionally will blurt out a “WHAT!” followed by an “oh man!” and we lose it. but i don’t think anything tops eleanor with her legs crossed in the stroller as she reads. someone recently asked me, “is it boring?” referring to having a family. i was a little confused. it’s many things, and not all of them are glamorous or exciting all the time, but boring it is most certainly not.
and I JUST CAN’T with this photo. the amount of kisses those cheeks get from josh and me. makes the 2:30AM wake up calls and constant bouncing and spit up on every single article of clothing i own worth it. so so worth it. :)
