NYC

I’m back! I was in NYC for the past four days/three nights… It was fun, but I’m so happy to be home! I had been to NYC once before, for three days, to visit one of my good friends. She was the perfect tour guide and it was so much fun. This time, I went for work, with my boss/best friend and another coworker. (We went in search of new clothing lines for BB Children’s Boutique, in case you’re wondering!)

Anyways, it was lots of fun and I actually did better (being away from Blaire) than I thought I would. Jason sent me lots of snapchats and videos, and she looked like she was having so much fun that it didn’t make me feel guilty for being way. While in NYC, we spent a day at a clothing show, and two days shopping in the garment district. We met up for dinner and lunch with my friend Jackie. I haven’t seen her for over a year, since I went to visit her in October of 2013, so it was lots of fun to catch up. She’s getting married this October which means there was tons to talk about! While we were there, we had sooo much good food, including some New York pizza and Shake Shack. We did a little sightseeing, including shopping in Columbus Circle and Times Square.

While I was gone, Jason transitioned Blaire from her pack and play (in our room) to her crib (in her own bedroom). SCARY. My worst fear was that she wouldn’t let him get much sleep while I was away. Jason gets up early for work, and he had to get up even earlier to get Blaire to daycare. Between her cold and teething, she had been waking up for hours in the middle of the night, or would toss and turn for hours… Luckily, each morning I got a good report! She would go right to sleep and was only up for an hour, or less, each night. #success ;) She also had her third bottom tooth pop through while I was gone!

Blaire tried yogurt for the first time this weekend. We found this baby yogurt at Target. She LOVES it! We started with the apple and blueberry package and she seems to love them both equally. We are slowly transitioning her from purees to more solid foods, but it’s just not the easiest with only 2 1/2 teeth. Speaking of teeth… now that she has her two bottom teeth, and a top tooth that’s about half way in, she has started grinding them! It is the most terrible sound. Did your kid(s) do this? If so, was there anything you could do to get them to stop? I can’t handle it!

Last week Blaire had her first piece of cat food, and now we can’t keep her out of the kitchen! Any time she can, she makes a bee line to the cat bowls. So gross. Well, we’re halfway through the week… here’s hoping your last two days go by quickly! xo
