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 […]

Sensible snacking?

by Ashley on September 12, 2011

I’ve started a bad habit that’s going to take some work to kick: dessert for dinner. Or more accurately, dessert that spoils my appetite for dinner. I don’t actually get around to having a square breakfast or lunch (often snacking on sweets then, too) and come 3 or 4 in the afternoon, I reach for […]

Bento trending

by Ashley on September 7, 2011

James of bleubird is probably best-known for her family fashion shoots, but have you seen her kiddo lunch series? Wowzers.¬† I love all the bento-style boxes now available for kids’ lunches (do we have Lunchables to thank?): these come with a insulated pack, these would make lunch seem a bit more exotic, and this simple […]

Coconut water

by Ashley on August 26, 2011

I wonder if the coconut water companies know what a market they have in expectant mothers. (Probably.) Just about every pregnant woman I know loves to drink coconut water–usually citing electrolytes for hydration (a nice alternative to brightly colored and sugary sports drinks) and high potassium for leg cramps. And chilled coconut water with a […]

Le Pain Quotidien

by Ashley on August 1, 2011

I took this picture of Aron on the Saturday morning before I went into labor; I think le Pain Quotidien will, now, forever be linked with Hudson’s arrival. It seemed fitting to return there this past Saturday–on my actual due date (and for one of our first true outings together). How odd to think that […]

Style for a nursing mom

by Ashley on June 24, 2011

Alyson of Unruly Things asked me to guest post while she’s on maternity leave. (Have you seen her new little man, Wolf? Adorable!) I picked out a cute outfit that would meet my requirements for nursing-friendly wear–but which I’d happily wear anytime. Stop by and check it out! And while on the subject of good […]

Pregnancy-approved beers

by Ashley on June 6, 2011

Over dinner last week, an expectant friend and I were lamenting that we would be setting aside the pleasure of sipping beer on hot days this summer. So for the sake of summer barbecues¬† and pregnant women, Aron and I did our best to judge some commonly found non-alcoholic beers. The contenders: Kaliber (Ireland, from […]

A few months, we went to Giggle to get some help with our registry. We were being helped by a really nice guy who was spending a ton of time with us–having Aron try on carriers, taking us through all of their stroller options, and telling us about their apartment-sized cribs–and we were loving it! […]

down home amy

by Ashley on May 17, 2011

I love the muted greys and yellows in these organic cloth goods–available in Down Home Amy’s etsy shop. Of course, I’m partial to greys and yellows… and elephants (in case you hadn’t noticed). Isn’t the fold-over snack pouch brilliant?

Make mine a virgin

by Ashley on April 5, 2011

I’m having some girlfriends over tomorrow night for a ladies-only potluck and have been trying to come up with a cocktail that will start the night off right–but which will also still be interesting and unique sans alcohol. For example, I make a pretty tasty Dark & Stormy (Cruzan rum has made all the difference), […]
