We may not have the crib mattress just yet, but at least baby has a place to sleep. This is his bassinet that just arrived today. It sits next to the bed so that we can keep an eye on him and also so that we don't have to get up to comfort him in the middle of the night. I think we will get a lot of use out of it, at least until he outgrows it!
We had our New Haven baby shower and it was a big success. My cousin Mira, S, and I did a lot of prep and I think everything turned out really well. It was great to celebrate with our family and friends.
We went and had a 3-D ultrasound done of the little guy. He had his hands covering his face for most of it, but we managed to get a few shots in the end. He was moving a bit and even yawned and smiled for us. He looks very happy and comfortable in there!
This is a photo taken surreptitiously from my spare bedroom. It's a photo of our neighbors having dinner by candlelight in their sun porch. They have dinner in there nearly every night now that it's lighter in the early evenings. Such a sweet thing to do!
Since most of the Cape was still closed for the season, we weren't quite sure what to do with ourselves. But we found out we could take a one-hour plane ride up the coast and back again. The plane was a Cessna 172 which seats FOUR. Very small! But it was really cool. There were loads of good photos, but here is one showing the very tip of the Cape.
