Back to the airport and Abigail's ready to take her next flight - old hat really at this point. Chicago is calling and the Martling / Arnolds are (hopefully) ready for us to descend. Someone, Lady A that is, had too much to drink on the plane and had to... Continue reading

So we are back from Florida! And yes - our apartment does seem ever so slightly smaller now compared to our accommodations in Sarasota, sad to say. Abigail & I had a rather relaxed (some may say "boring") week as Scott headed back to work. A few days just staying... Continue reading

Everybody arrives! Well - the first wave at least. Uncle Dave & Aunt Jill Thursday night and then Scott Friday morning! Abigail was very excited to see Daddy after 12 days apart :) Some fun beach time: As well as beer time and baby cuddle time: Baby A turns 10... Continue reading

Abigail's first big trip! We (she and I) traveled down to Sarasota, FL for 3 weeks on Monday March 7th. It sounds crazy long especially if you think about it in terms of A's life so far - she will have spent more than 25% of her whole life in... Continue reading

It's our last week before A and I head to Florida so trying to get everything on the home front pulled together. Abigail had her 7 week check up at the doctors Monday 3/1. We needed to also make sure she got all of shots before flying - which as... Continue reading

Week 7 started out with a fun Sunday brunch with Uncle Dave and Aunt Jill. Abigail wore her festive new Canadian moose socks, picked up on Scott's recent Canadian work trip. D & J then proceeded to show us how brunch is really done. During the week, I mostly just... Continue reading

Well our 6th week (ending Feb 20th for those keeping track) with Abigail was slightly uneventful until the weekend - so here are just a few photos to keep you entertained from the very expressive face of Baby A... feel free to add your own captions. And I do love... Continue reading

February 12th, we undertake the daunting task of packing up the car and getting a crying baby out the door and into a vehicle for only the second time in her short life. Ithaca was our intended destination - but we did have a few contingency plans in place in... Continue reading

Soooo... having a baby is oddly time consuming. Aren't they supposed to sleep something like 15-18 hours a day? You'd think I'd have oodles of down time to update this thing... but sadly no. I am quite behind so apologies to all who are actually checking in and expecting more... Continue reading

More visitors for baby A - even venturing over during Super Bowl weekend! Thanks Michelle and Shannio for making the time to meet Abigail - she loves all the doting :) But after all the visitors left - A was not in the best of spirits... not sure why... Scott...... Continue reading

We love visitors! And Abigail couldn't have been happier than when Aunt Wendy battled the mini-blizzard (liberties may have been taken with that classification) that thwarted the east coast and made it to NYC for a fun filled February weekend. After we finally let Wendy out of our hallway -... Continue reading

Duty calls. Scott had to go to Canada for work for 4 days. Leaving his 4 week old baby... and more importantly - me home alone with her. So I called in reinforcements. Nana is back! Thanks, mom, for making the trip up - Abigail missed you too :) And... Continue reading

Abigail is a wee bit lazy. She needs an hour on average (yes - 60 minutes plus or minus 15) to get through a feeding. And once she's done, she passes out in any manor of relaxed state. A few moments are captured below just to share my view point... Continue reading

It’s a big week! Starting off with TK’s first subway ride – who doesn’t need to go to Buy Buy Baby to Buy Buy Buy stuff with their newborn to kick of week 3 post partum? She did remarkably well – no crying. No one offered us a seat on... Continue reading

So I realized looking over the last post from week 2 that we had fewer pictures of just Abigail than I think folks may want. So here are a few more pics of her antics from the first few weeks. My different sleeping poses: This is my angry face (or... Continue reading

Well, week 2 for baby girl has been fairly busy - by our new standards at least, which realistically is to just try and get one thing done per day. So here is a quick update of FIRSTS for our little nugget, plus a few shout outs to friends &... Continue reading

Is getting through the 1st week too soon to think you've made it? Well, we will take the little victories as they come. Let's try to sum up what occurred between leaving the hospital and celebrating her first week with us. My mom is amazing - enough said. She stayed... Continue reading

You lose track. You don't know what day it is or why you need your temperature and blood pressure taken every 15 minutes. You let people wheel around with your baby, dropping her off or taking her away. They completely ignore the guy sleeping in the cot next to you... Continue reading

Well - it happened. After 9 months (well technically just shy of 38 weeks), we packed up and headed to Mount Sinai hospital for a midnight check in the night of Thursday January 7th. No surprise that our daughter was not interested in a chance delivery, she wanted it scheduled... Continue reading
