Still Here

Williamsburg, 2014

Nothing to report!

I am making up errands, really, like buying this little present for Axel from the new arrival (we're in a big duck phase right now.) It's sunny and frozen out and, yay, we're expecting another blizzard on Sunday night.

We've been having some delicious Blue Apron meals, watching (more) Friday Night Lights, and chatting about how best to make use of Will's paternity leave, which he can use any time in the first year. Since I'm a freelancer, I get zip, but it's still nice to know we'll have some good time together as a family of four in the next year.

Axel is doing well. I got him a new fuzzy blanket and pillow for his crib from Little Giraffe, which he's loving. These things are insanely soft and trimmed in satin like my baby blankets of yore. If it's good enough for Suri and the Garner-Afflecks, it's good enough for Axel...I might need one of the adult-sized ones.

He's been a little needier and naughtier of late. Instead of waking up at 7:45ish (I know, we got lucky), he's been up at around 6:30 each morning for a few weeks now, moaning a bit at night (teething?), and jumping precariously on the couch for kicks.

He's a little more sensitive lately too, but I think all of this may have more to do with all the developmental strides that happen around this age than with the notion of a new sibling. I don't think it really has anything to do with the new baby concept, since he's been getting just as much attention as usual, though who knows what really goes down in the mind of an 18 month old.
