^^The subway doors opened, this guy got on  one knee and proposed.  Then the subway doors closed and they were off.  It was awesome.

This weekend my little baby turns one.  It’s hitting me much harder than I expected.  My heart almost feels heavy thinking that she’s not a little baby anymore.  I’ll save the rest of my mushy thoughts about this for her actual birthday post.

We’re full swing into party mode in our apartment.  I’m so excited to have all of the people who have supported us and loved on her over the last year in one place at one time to celebrate.

Bring on the party!

Vegas, Baby

the baloney bug photo and title stolen directly from Jon’s instagram

After an unintentional blog hiatus, there were supposed to be cute photos up here on the blog today, but then someone was up until all hours of the night thanks to teething and jet lag.  So instead you get this adorable photo of Adelaide in Vegas.

You’re welcome.

The Last Few Weeks in iPhone Photos

I told Jon the other day that I’m really starting to enjoy this whole being a mom thing.  I felt like I was just making it, just surviving each day before.  Now I’m getting better at reading Adelaide’s cues and really make an effort to listen to what she’s telling me she needs.  I wait anxiously for her to wake up so I can snuggle with her some more, so I can see her big innocent smile, so I can tickle her belly.

Also, I discovered boxed wine.  It’s been sorta life changing.

I think this photo on the left may be my favorite yet.  We were waiting for the doctor to come in for her 4 month check up.  Can’t get enough of this girl.

The Last Couple of Weeks in iPhone Pics

A lot has happened in the last couple of weeks.  I became an auntie to the sweetest baby girl (and found out that I’ll be having a girl as well), I baked my little heart out, fall tv started…  Ahh, fall tv.  It’s like a consolation prize for the weather getting cold.

I’ve been finding myself walking around the streets of New York with a big dopey smile plastered on my face.  Yep, life is good.

Last Week in iPhone Photos

Last week was overall uneventful.  Coming back from vacation and going back to an inbox full at work is always a bit of a harsh reality.  And hubs left a day after we got back for yet another business trip, so the week was mostly Brady and me snuggling on the couch catching up on a very full DVR.  Brady loves the Real Housewives.

I’m excited about the week ahead- having hubs home, plans with friends and slightly cooler temperatures.  Have I ever mentioned that I love summer?

Last Week in iPhone Photos

Who can complain about an amazing family week at the beach?  There’s been lots of sun, ice cream, walks on the beach and swimming for Brady.  That dog loves to swim.  I’ve been letting him run in the muddy water that he loves so much and then clean off with a swim in the bay.  The smile on that dog’s face is seriously priceless.  Yes, life is good.

Last Week in iPhone Photos

Apparently last week I took more photos of food than I did the whole time I was in Spain.  Last week was crazy and great and so freaking hot.  I only took one picture of our Fourth of July celebration (that amazing “pork explosion” pictured above) but I can gaurantee there was lots of booze, barbecue and patriotic attire involved.

Now I just have to make it through two more days at the office before I go to the beach with my parents.  Bring it on.
