Day 365: Dads and babies

We were invited to our friends' place for a barbeque. Here are the dads and their babies! From left to right, Joe and Jacob, Brian and Meghan, and S and baby A.

This is the final post of my second 365! Year 3 will begin shortly.

Day 364: New neighbors

We have new neighbors upstairs who have just moved in. They had a very large moving truck with lots of helpful friends bringing it all inside.

Day 363: Happy

Tried taking a few quick photos of baby to send to Daddy while he's on the road.

Day 362: Trip to the library

Even though Daddy is out of town, we still made it to the library and Anand was good enough to let Mommy check out a few books.

Day 361: New wardrobe

Our landlord lent us a vintage wardrobe, which he and his friend moved into our apartment. It's a little big, but I love it!

Day 360: Farewell to my suitcase

I'm really sad about this. My favorite suitcase, a suitcase that has been all around the world and back with me, has finally died for good. I must replace it immediately!

Here are Shanta and Madison, my sister-in-law's daughter and my sister's daughter.

Day 352: The baptism

Baby was christened today at our home parish. He was generally very good with a few minor stressful parts. But we were all very happy he survived the water. Here is the baptismal font.

Saturday, August 14, 2010

Day 351: New blanket

Baby has some new blankets and this one is my favorite.

Friday, August 13, 2010

Daddy's sleeping, baby's sleeping...why isn't mommy sleeping?

Thursday, August 12, 2010

Day 349: Home sweet home

We start our first full day at home in the Chicago suburbs. Anand and Daddy are reading a magazine.

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Day 348: Airplane ride

Baby's first airplane ride! We made it successfully and even scored an upgrade to first class, but it was only for one of us plus baby, and neither of us were willing to leave the other back in steerage. So we kindly gave back the upgrade...I'm hoping that karma will come back to us!

Day 347: First election

Baby's first election.

Monday, August 9, 2010

Day 346: Smiley

He's finally starting to smile!

Sunday, August 8, 2010

Day 345: Politics

We are having a primary election in a couple days, and the mail and telephone calls have been ramping up. It's starting to get annoying, so I'll be quite glad when August 10 is done!

Saturday, August 7, 2010

Day 344: Wentworth's

S took me and baby A to Wentworth's for some ice cream. They have the best ice cream of any place around here. Plus, they have a nice backyard seating area where you can relax with your treat.

Friday, August 6, 2010

Day 343: Dreading this

S will be taking a trip when we return from Chicago...which means I will be on my own with baby A. I hope we survive!

Thursday, August 5, 2010

Day 342: Laundry

Since having the baby, we now have a permanent pile of laundry located somewhere in the apartment.

Wednesday, August 4, 2010

Day 341: Poor little one

Today was the day I'd been dreading. Baby received his first set of immunizations (jabs for my UK viewers). He was so brave and only cried when she gave the initial injections, then he quieted right down. I was so proud of him!

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

Day 340: Working with Dad

Dad had some work to do, and luckily baby A was on hand to help.

Monday, August 2, 2010

Day 339: Closeup

Baby's closeup.

Day 338: Tomatoes

My landlord's growing tomatoes in the backyard and they're just starting to ripen.

Saturday, July 31, 2010

Day 337: CTLX

Connecticut Lindy Exchange! Needless to say, thanks to baby, I am not participating this year, but I did stop by to see some friends and check out the dancing in the plaza.

Friday, July 30, 2010

Day 336: Gym time

Baby A spending some quality time on his little gym. Also wearing an extremely cute shirt given to him by Grandma.

Day 335: Thunderstorm

An impromptu thunderstorm on the way back from my mothers' group.

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Day 334: Sleeping

But not for long, I bet.

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

Day 333: My two guys

I just love this photo.

Monday, July 26, 2010

Day 332: Cookies

The heat finally broke enough for me to consider doing some baking. Yay for oatmeal raisin cookies!

Sunday, July 25, 2010

Day 331: 50 point bonus

S and I decided it had been way too long since we'd played Scrabble, so we got out the board. We started a game on Saturday but ditched it as we ended up going to the concert instead. So we started again. And guess who played EYESORES for a 50 point bonus as his very first move? Needless to say, I did not win!

Saturday, July 24, 2010

Day 330: Impromptu concert

After a day spent out of the heat, inside with the air conditioning, we decided at the last minute to check out a free concert on the green. The New Haven Symphony Orchestra played. It was a nice evening.

Friday, July 23, 2010

Day 329: Success

A's passport has arrived! I'm so pleased. Considering it could have taken six weeks and we got it in less than two, I'm impressed.

Thursday, July 22, 2010

Day 328: More Catholic places

We took an impromptu road trip up north to a seminary that housed a Catholic bookstore. I was hoping to get a baptism gown for Anand's baptism next month, but they didn't have any. Still, it was a nice trip and the seminary was beautiful.

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

Day 327: Catholic center

We went to meet with Father Bob at the Yale Catholic center as part of our preparation for A's baptism in August. The center is really beautiful.

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

Day 326: Meghan and Anand

Meghan's mom and I met a few months back when we were both pregnant and going to prenatal exercise class. Meghan was due on June 4 and Anand was due June 20, but in the end, they were born only two days apart! Here they are at our moms' group.

Monday, July 19, 2010

Day 325: More sprouts

The hot weather has led S to sprout even more lentils. These look almost alive!

Sunday, July 18, 2010

Day 324: Closeup

Baby was looking so sweet in his carseat (where he had been placed in an attempt to stop his shouting).

Saturday, July 17, 2010

Day 323: Sleepyheads

My two guys sleeping peacefully.

Friday, July 16, 2010

Day 322: Twilight

Dad and baby out in the garden. Dad was trying to calm baby down by giving him a change in scenery.

Thursday, July 15, 2010

Day 321: A visit to the art gallery

We motivated and got out to the Yale Center for British Art today. I had wanted to see an exhibit they've got up of British Transport posters. I have a few of them up in our apartment. It was a good exhibit and baby was generally well-behaved, although we did need to take him out so I could feed him at one point. But all in all, a good day.

Day 320: Head to head

Father and son go head to head.

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

Day 319: Experimenting with the camera

Trying the camera's color accent mode.

Day 318: Mommy brain

I was generally able to avoid pregnancy brain. Mommy brain, not so much. This morning, I was going to make some pancakes for S from the leftover batter. I poured what I thought was the batter on the griddle, and it started separating and looked very oily. Generally not nice at all. So we got rid of it. Then much later, we found what was actually the batter in the fridge. What was it that I had tried to fry? Salad dressing.

Day 317: Visitors

We had a nice time having David, Nicki, and Emmett over for brunch. Emmett's mom is a great baker and brought us homemade ginger scones.

Day 316: Action shot

Baby in motion. Clearly not interested in sleeping.
