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.

But not for long, I bet.

I just love this photo.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Day 325: More sprouts

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

Day 324: Closeup

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

My two guys sleeping peacefully.

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.

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.

Day 315: Baby applies for a passport

Although we are not planning on traveling internationally any time soon, we thought it would be good to get A's passport sorted just in case. So my goal this week was to get his photo done and get the application completed and accepted at the post office. Just in the nick of time, we achieved the goal! Added bonus: passport fees are increasing in just 4 days.

Day 314: Sprouts

One upside of the heat wave: sprouted moong beans. S sprouted these in less than a day and made a salad for us. He also made some yogurt from scratch.

Wednesday, July 7, 2010

Day 313: Water

The excessive heat here has caused a significant increase in the water demand for our city. As a result, there has been sediment in the water that was stirred up in the pipes. The water authority has assured us that it is safe to drink, and that we should just let the sediment fall to the bottom and drink the clear water on top. Um, yeah, I don't think so.
