Four months

by Ashley on November 17, 2011

Hudson is four months old today. I realized that it was also exactly a year ago today–the Thursday before Thanksgiving–that we learned he was on his way. I can’t believe he is four months old, but I really can’t believe he has been in our lives for a year. This week has been a tough […]

One of the things you read or hear about a lot when you’re pregnant is that, at some point after the baby is born, all of your hair is going to start falling out. I thought I was in the clear–no bald spots yet–but I do seem to be shedding more than usual. I’m pulling […]

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]

Three months

by Ashley on October 17, 2011

For some reason, for the past couple of weeks, when folks on the street ask how old Hudson is, I’ve been answering three months. So this time our little photo session has actually felt a long time coming! Perhaps it is because he seems to change so much with every week? Something that hasn’t changed: […]

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 […]

City kid

by Ashley on September 26, 2011

Watching Hudson’s eyes widen at the sight of grafitti had Aron and I talking about some of the funny realities we’ve encountered so far, having a baby in Manhattan. Believe it or not, and cost aside, New York seems like an amazing place for children. There are new playgrounds popping up all over the city […]

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 […]

Two months

by Ashley on September 21, 2011

We were in California on the 17th, the actual two-month-mark, so this is Hudson a day shy. I find it so bittersweet to see him growing so much. When people point out what I already know–he’s not a newborn anymore, he’s a baby!–I find myself thinking: have I drunk in every little expression? Did I […]

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 […]

Returning to the Highline

by Ashley on September 6, 2011

Thank you for all the well-wishes for my check-up last week. When the time came, I felt good heading to the office and everything was peachy-keen on my end; Hudson, on the other hand, wasn’t so intent on making the trip to the doctor easy. It was my fault for trying to accomplish too much, […]
