He lives!

31 Mar

Here are some outtakes from my first Easter. After church we went to a brunch with a bunch of our friends, some who are expecting. I let them practice with me. We brought avocado and bacon deviled eggs and a chocolate stout cheesecake. We ate delicious pork shoulder, broccoli slaw, quinoa salad, and banana pudding. Really I just rolled around on the ground with a red plastic cup.

Happy Easter. What a holiday to celebrate. He lives!

Love, Townes.





And one more thing…

Easter Eggs

30 Mar

Some very special friends came over and brought me eggs with whopper-style choco eggs inside. They were also very pretty. It was a good day.


Day Off Date

29 Mar

Happy Good Friday.  Mom took the day off and we had a 24 hour date together.  It was great.  We did all the things we sometimes wish we could do every day:

– We (she) did not take a morning shower.

– We (she) joined me and daddy for the breakfast, morning routine, news and all.

– We (she) read a novel (!) during my nap.

– We went to see daddy at work and then took him on a date to our favorite sandwich shop in his work hood.

– We (she) bought a new dress for spring.

– We (she) read more novel took a nap during my nap.

– We went on a run.

– We played in the grass at Prospect Park (see below).  Dirt.  What is that?  Now I know. Fascinating.

– We (she) made a delicious dessert.

– We (she) lounged some more and ordered vietnamese bahn mi sandwiches for dinner.

– We took a bubble bath.

Lady of leisure.  That’s what my momma is.

Love, Townes.

This series sums me up: a blur of movement while I try to get everything possible in my belly.






Grand Prix

25 Mar

Just me at the little Townes Grand Prix today.  Wore my racing tee.

In other news:

  • It’s snowing.  Again. I think the groundhog thing is a hoax.  Took me all of 7 months to figure that out.
  • I am drooling up a storm.  I know I say it a lot, but these teeth have got to be coming soon.
  • I am also “dadadadadada”ing up a storm.  Probably also tied to my emerging teeth (or my love of my pops).  Mom things the former since dadadada quickly turns into blablablabla which then turns into lalalalala.
  • I am scooting all over the place, mostly through the use of my right leg.  With the slight imbalance, I tend to go in a circle.  Sometimes I get exploring and end up in far corners of the living room.  I am really determined.  really.
  • I ate hummus today for lunch.  yum.  It, unlike the pesto, was intentional.
  • Dad lowered my crib, locked the oven, put a gate at the top of the stairs, covered the little electrical holes in the wall, and put a mommy-proof lock on the cabinet under the sink.  What is this, a bubble?

My reward for being cute

20 Mar

So it’s been a pretty awesome day. Mom and dad were both home by 5 so we celebrated by going out for BBQ and beer at a local spot with a GREAT mirror.

Guess who doesn’t have to wash any dishes? Me. Three cheers for awesome mirrors and BBQ.

Love Townes.


“I’m Fine”

20 Mar

Hi Mom

Just a midday note to let you know that I’m having a great day. Don’t worry about me. I may have been sad when you left but I’m fine. We’re about to go outside for an adventure.

Love Townes.
