Fifteen years ago today, David asked me to be his girlfriend. :)

Oh, don't let her fool you. She's only pretending to like sleeping. Sweet friends.

a Yankee Bird no more

It's official! We are moving to Houston soon. It's going to be a busy next few weeks and months, but we are so, so excited. More details to come. Here's what I'm thinking today...

What I will miss: the ice cream stands, the flowering trees in the spring, the leaves in the fall, day trips to NYC, our neighbors, our doctors, our wonderful friends, Red Sox and the AL, Harvard, KK, KQM, the crazy accents, watching David play baseball

What I'm looking forward to: Blue Bell ice cream, Chick waffle fries, hot weather, Astros and the NL, living close to family, friends in Houston, being homeowners again, the super-cool neighborhood we're moving to, Birdie's future sweet southern accent

6 months!

Yesterday was Birdie's half-birthday. JDub gave me the idea about celebrating half-birthdays, and I love the idea, so we're going to start that for Birdie. So, as of yesterday, she's half. :)
I went to HGSE last night to hear Howard Gardner speak, so her birthday present was that she got to go to Harvard for the first time. Yes, she's going to be a super-nerd just like her mommy.

play dates and random cuteness

It seems like we have so many friends with new babies right now, so we've had several play dates recently. I think Birdie is trying to convince this sweet sleeper that being awake is much more fun. We've been friends with this family since Colorado, and it was so nice to finally meet their little boy. This pretty momma is a fellow baseball wife with me. We love their sweet girl.

Here are some cute pictures from the last few weeks.

Someone needs new jammies. I laughed out loud when I noticed this...

funny face

Birdie started making this funny face off and on a few weeks ago, but now she does it all day. She wrinkles her nose and huffs and puffs. Pretty cute!

playing with Daddy

I packed up Birdie's clothes that are too small for her today. I had this shirt and onesie made for David's first father's day this year, so I had to get one more picture of them together.

She loves to look at "the baby in the mirror." Here she is bending over backwards to get to her.

Happy New Year!

We went to a New Year's party yesterday, and it turned into a baby convention. It was so fun having so many babies together. It's snowing again all weekend. All this effort just to check the mail!
