One Month of luuuuuuuuuuuuuv!
I feel like I should be writing something other than how enchanting the boys are, because - really - how much of that can people take?
The problem is that they are the big story in my life right now (and for a while I imagine) and they really are that interesting - to me at least!
My biggest trips from the apartment have been walks to Fort Tryon Park and driving Mom to the airport. The most distracting entertainment I have had - aside from the babies and parental visits - has been watching movies from Netflix (Dan in Real Life was good! And Mom introduced me to the Duchess of Duke Street!).
So I am a bit boring.
But the fun of watching the babies suck their fingers, kissing their kissy lips and chubby cheeks, changing their cheesy/poopy diapers and trying to sooth them to sleep at 2AM is entertainment enough for me!
With only about 4-5 hours of sleep, I don't have the attention span for anything more entertaining and though hanging out at the apartment isn't as cosmopolitan as going for cocktails at the Blue Owl, it's been a fun opportunity to really connect with Mom and Dad and Lucia during their visits.
Plus, Dad did a lot of cooking - yum! Thanks for the salmon fettucini Alfredo and the chinese stir-fry!
Anyways. A month into this parenting thing and I am just as captivated by the boys, by getting to know them and their funny ways - Max likes to fall asleep with his head spilling over your arm (see the baby Lucia is holding in the photo below?) and Thomas is an unrepentant finger-sucker and bink-a-holic.
Happy belated one-month-birthday boys! We've decided to keep you!
Gotta go now - we just received a shipment of 200 diapers - which should last us about a week...
There's Max - draping his head right off Grandma Lucia's arm - just the way he likes it!
