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 […]

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 […]

Playing Doctor

by Ashley on October 25, 2011

No, not that kind of “playing doctor.” With his dad being a urologist, I’m of course drawn to doctor kits for Hudson. This wooden one seems especially like an especially nice one to start with (at least until he’s old enough for “Operation”). [Top image from Soopsori via LMNOP; Second photo from the Bruhn family–that’s […]

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 […]

Spell it out

by Ashley on September 23, 2011

I’ve always loved those magnetic letters and numbers for the fridge. These ones from Mudpuppy are made from recycled wood! (We took Hudson out to  his first gallery show last night and I ran into Emily, who suggested I check out Mudpuppy–thanks, Emily!) We’re sharing a few photos from our trip on Hither & Thither […]

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 […]

Baby wear

by Ashley on August 19, 2011

I’ve been spending a lot of time wearing Hudson in his Sakura Bloom ring sling. He loves it! Provided he’s not hungry or sporting a heavy diaper, he will grow calm or fall asleep almost the instant I put him in it. I often still push his stroller along with me–having not quite mastered the […]

Guest Post: Jesse’s Top 10 Parenthood Songs

by Ashley on August 11, 2011

I’ve asked a few friends and fellow-bloggers to guest post while I am getting acquainted with Hudson–though I know I’ll enjoy sharing updates and photos from time to time. Jesse and I have been friends since college and I’ve always trusted his opinion when it comes to music. These days, I look forward to his […]
