Is this my blog or my Flickr site, huh? I know, I know. But I also know that not a lot of you are going to complain about lots of pictures of my supercute baby even if they come at the expense of words. We’re just so busy experiencing the world (and picking up after […]

My mom’s in town for the weekend, and we went straight from the airport to daycare to get Evan who, because of that, didn’t get his second nap today.  He was in great spirits but very, very sleepy. At the park this afternoon, he kept oscillating between Happy and Sound Asleep, skipping right over Drowsy […]

In other words, YAY! There are a lot of good things about being home in Rochester. Six hundred and fifty four of them I will leave to your imagination. One, however, is seeing pictures of myself as a kid. There are an unfortunate number of pictures around from high school, but the great ones from […]



I’ve never been much for Valentine’s Day. In high school I convinced my mom to let me stay home, even. As I’ve said before, she’s a good mom. But I’m totally all for romance and for love in general. That’s why Brian and I are going out on a date tomorrow night (avoiding the crowds, […]

Pale is the new tan, burp cloths are the new blankies (Evan’s been carrying this one around all week as if it’s his Wooby), and apparently Sylvester Stallone is the new Sylvester Stallone. First Rocky and now Rambo? Seriously?

Here’s Peanut, this week’s naptime project. No surprise, he’s from Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts (the only craft book I own). I think my favorite part is his ears: But I love the tail, too: Evan seems to like Peanut, too: A lot: In dissertation news, this week saw some writing (I’m up to about […]

I know. I know. I’ve been neglectful lately. I’m sorry I haven’t called you back, Aub. And Dawn, I haven’t called to let you know that you left your scarf here on Saturday. And all my bloggy friends, I know, I haven’t been commenting. My bloglines reader has, like, 104 unread posts. But I’m thinking […]

What is the deal with baby towels and washcloths? Are we afraid that actual corners might somehow injure wee little babies? Are towel corners really so sharp? Please, someone, explain this to me because I hate folding round-edged washcloths. (Pictured: Evan in a round-cornered towel — can’t figure out where the corner is? That’s because […]

For Daddy


Every time I spoke to Brian today, he sounded more and more frustrated. It was a day of urgent meetings, fires to put out, unrealistic deadlines, and the promise of work over the weekend. Lots of it. When I told Evan about this, he wanted to do something for his daddy, who would be stuck […]

They really shouldn’t make turtlenecks in baby sizes because come on, babies don’t have necks. But still. Seduced as I was by the allure of a cute baby in a dark blue turtleneck, I bought one. And I made Evan wear it. And really I was probably the only one who noticed it was a […]
