New Babies

Williamsburg, 2013

Today, for the second time this month, we visited friends with newborn twins. The last twins we met were in London, and each family now has three kids under 3.

My proverbial hat goes off to these mamas (okay, and the dads too.) Toddlers are terrifying...add two more brand new humans to the mix and, well, there are some serious logistics to grapple with.

It's no secret that we would eventually like a brood, but I'm still in awe when I actually see our friends or family pulling it off so gracefully.

Needless to say, we did not arrive empty handed. This morning we popped into The Blue Stove in Greenpoint for some provisions. It's an all-pie bakery (genius!) that makes lovely organic chicken pot pies (as well as the usual sweet ones.) We also made a pit stop at Dough, because, well, donuts are awesome. To anyone wondering what to bring friends with new babies, I have one word: Food! We survived the first ten days at home with Axel thanks to some lovely hand delivered meals. Without them I'm pretty sure we would have subsisted on toast for weeks.

Compared to the week old babies, Axel looked huge!!! We all watched the inauguration while running interference with the four kids.

Our fellow was apparently exhausted by all the patriotic fervor.
