Farewell, friends

by Ashley on November 28, 2011

Or, rather, see you soon! I’ve decided it’s time to say goodbye to Baby Mine and bring some of its family-focus over to Hither & Thither. Now that Hudson is here, exploring the city and beyond with us, it’s hard to know which personal stories belong where. And then, let’s be honest, there’s the matter […]

Alphabet rings

by Ashley on November 11, 2011

Catbird, a jewelry shop in Williamsburg, has lovely little gift guides–including one for new moms. My favorite are the delicate little alphabet rings.  A good friend is about to (any moment now) have baby #3; wouldn’t it be sweet to wear three stacked rings, one with each child’s initial?

Many of you have asked about our registry, and the items we have found most valuable thus far. So with the giant caveat that we’re only a few months in on this whole “Oh my goodness, we have a son!” bit, here’s my list… Crib: Remember the closet that became the nursery? Only this crib […]

First Halloween!

by Ashley on November 1, 2011

‘ ‘ No trick-or-treating yet, but Hudson looked sweeter than any candy in his baby shark costume! We had so much fun walking around the village with him on Monday evening; he had no trouble baiting new friends. [P.S. A few more family photos on Hither and Thither]

Oeuf halloween

by Ashley on October 28, 2011

There are a host of good halloween inspiration round-ups floating around (Martha Stewart is always an impressive source–such cute homemade baby costumes), and I wish I could say that I got my act together to personally make something for Hudson but alas I’m still working on making dinner now-and-then. If money weren’t an object (and–okay–if […]

A less practical gift

by Ashley on October 6, 2011

First off, the folks who are receiving your meals and diapers as gifts are super lucky! I agree that new parents really appreciate any help they can get with keeping themselves fed. Here’s another–less practical–gift idea for new parents: family photos. Aron and I are secretly (well, until now I suppose) always wishing that someone […]

Care Package

by Ashley on October 4, 2011

Did you happen to see this post over on Odeedoh about Finland’s national gift to new moms? Can you imagine? Hudson received all kinds of wonderful things celebrating his arrival: a ton of cute clothes, blankets knitted with love, and some toys that he is just now starting to notice. But there were also a […]

When you are born

by Ashley on September 15, 2011

The baby shower Erin’s sister threw is one of the most creative and beautiful I’ve seen. The book which grounds the theme–When I Was Born–is one I love to thumb through when I’m in the children’s section of the bookstore, so this immediately caught my eye. But the thoughtful details and collaborative efforts of the […]

Whose Birthday?

by Ashley on September 8, 2011

I was on the phone with my mother-in-law last Friday and she asked me if I had any plans for my birthday. (Which happens to be today!) I had completely forgotten that it was coming up. (Which I promise you is not typical.) Someone else’s recent birthday has had me a bit distracted. I feel […]

Month One

by Ashley on August 22, 2011

Hudson month one from Aron Bruhn on Vimeo. We decided that Hudson should sit on the couch with his elephant friend for his monthly photos. Thank you to those of you who added some suggestions last week! I swear I’ll narrow it down to just one at some point soon, but I just love all […]
