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 […]

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 […]

Word on the street is that babies need a humidifier. When Hudson was a few days old, he sounded a little congested so Aron looked around at reviews and tried his best to find something (a) well-reviewed and (b)not hideous/ginormous. The combination of a plus b seemed elusive. By the time we found something even […]

Not enough wallspace

by Ashley on October 21, 2011

There are so many amazing new wallpapers showing up lately. Recent favorites by Famille Summerbelle (top) and Emma Molony. I love how you don’t immediately see that Molony’s are scenes from Peter Pan; they could be for a grown-up who doesn’t want to wear a serious expression in the middle of July…  Both could be, […]

Moveable work surface

by Ashley on September 30, 2011

In my imaginary extra room for crafts and (eventually) playtime, I would love to have one of these. Just put away your work mid-project and–literally–pick it up where you left off. Can someone please get Ikea to start production? In the meantime, one could work on breakfast trays and shelve them in a cupboard for […]

Closet Space: Hudson’s crib

by Ashley on September 28, 2011

Hudson is now occasionally sleeping in his crib, so I thought it might be a good time to share some photos of Aron’s closet-space-turned-nursery. There are really two doors inside our apartment: one to the bathroom, and one beside the bed leading to the walk-through closet that leads to the bathroom (you can see it […]

Did any of you get your silhouette cut by the artist on Disneyland’s Main Street when you were a child? What a treasure! Is the shop still there? Until we can go and see, on my wish list for Hudson:  a custom-made silhouette by Love & Victory.

Clear skies ahead?

by Ashley on August 29, 2011

We weathered a hurricane this weekend–a first for all three of us. Fortunately, the storm didn’t cause much damage around us, and we weren’t seriously impacted (save for some anxious anticipation and cabin fever). In fact, Hudson was so nonplussed by it all that he slept nearly six hours straight–right through the storm! Hooray! (Do […]

Cover your ears

by Ashley on August 25, 2011

I have grown more or less accustomed to the sirens, the trucks, the construction… the things that pass you by countless times in a single afternoon in Manhattan. Walking around the city with a baby, however, I am more aware (read: scared) than ever of how loud it can all be. And then we took […]

Have you heard of this Swedish Snotsucker (aka nasal aspirator)? I was telling Aron about it the other day and it went something like this… Me: “There’s this thing called Nosefrida that everyone seems to really love for clearing a baby’s nose. You suck through a tube against his nose and the suction draws out […]
