when hazel was three weeks old we decided it was probably time to hit the beach. she loved it, other than not being able to be in the sun or the sand... but once we got set up she took a nap stretched out on the blanket under the umbrella and seemed to be loving life. can't wait until she's old enough to dig in the sand and splash in the water. far rockaway june 2014
okay. so i realize almost all my posts lately have been about hazel. but i guess that's the majority of what's going on in my life, and since this is my blog about what i'm seeing and doing i guess it makes sense. as a visual person i'm still trying to keep an eye out for photo opportunities in everyday life, but right now my days pretty much revolve around her. and lets be honest - she's pretty stinkin' cute.
i just spent the last week hanging out with my amazing sister, melissa, who came to nyc to visit us and meet hazel.
it was HUGE help to have her here to reassure me about things like - yes, that is indeed a noise babies are supposed to make and yes, that diaper blowout is completely normal. already miss having her around but glad she was able to come for as long as she did. man. family rules.
it seems like everyone is weaving something these days, and i saw these woven chairs on a blog so i thought it'd give it a shot for one of my bestie's birthday presents.
the hardest part was creating the pattern and doing the math to figure out how to execute it properly, but after that was done the weaving part was pretty easy (once i got the hang of it) thanks to nina - the birthday girl - for the adorable photo of hazel in the chair!
