The upside of living on and Island is that it’s surrounded by water. (there’s a quotable) We’ve had a lot of fun taking Colette to the Fire Island Light House – (several times actually). Last week we wanted to take her again but Field 5 of Robert Moses was closed from the hurricane damage – so we [...]
Having a baby is a ticket to new and different adventures. – Some of them are scary (I do sometimes sent pix of poop bombs to teenage guys for kicks) some of them are adorable (like watching a line form at Panara of older women who want to see the baby’s feet) and some are just normal [...]
Still almost a week behind in posting pictures – but this was an eventful week. The Sutter family came to visit from York. We visited Northport Village, Caumsett Park (again) and Planting Fields Arboretum State Historic Park
So we all made it three weeks now – here are some new pictures. The weather on Long Island has been amazing this week giving us a change to explore the Village (and almost run into the lead singer from AC/DC) and Caumsett Park (I love that place!), and spend some time Melissa, Jamie, and Noah. It’s [...]
Colette and her parents survived a second week and a lot firsts – first road trip, first Bible story, first YANKEES game etc.

Once she falls asleep… it’s actually quite tough to wake her. Here is an edited version of her morning routine… (it actually takes her a [...]
We’ve made it one week home with Colette. Thought about having a 1 week graduation party… for Colette’s parents. Ashley is a really wonderful mom, and we’ve been thankful to have Grandma (MeMe?) over for a couple nights to help Colette sleep at night – it’s been a fun adventure so far. Enjoy the pix.
Mondays are nice at our house. After her first night home (not a ton of sleep), Colette spend her first day getting to know the surroundings and animals, furniture, routine (hopefully?) and people who are a part of our home. Also she learned that she has to play the piano… it’s grand.
My twitter status read: “On mothers day normally I pick up a card… maybe flowers… today I’m picking up a mother and a new baby… I’ve really outdone myself this year.” It was a great day – we were discharged from Huntington Hospital and returned around noon just Church was letting out. Colette was amazing - it [...]
Born May 6th at 2:30PM at 7lbs, 9oz and 20 inches. We could not be more thrilled to welcome baby Colette to our Family.
