bye bye doggie doggie

Before 9am and after 9pm Prospect Park the dogs at get to be off their leashes! Good time for baby Bee because she loves dogs!
We found a pack of dogs that must have been in some sort of doggie club because they all had matching bandannas around their necks.
Bee in the stroller watching the dog watching the fountain in front of the Brooklyn Musuem!
Bee likes to wake up her daddy!

Bee thinks she is a big girl now!

Bee watching the dogs. I do believe that her first word besides daddy will be doggie!

Eating dinner one night we discovered that Bee can wave bye bye! We have been teaching her signs (she does milk and light everyday) but we weren't trying to teach her this one!

Bee likes to pull herself up on everything and everyone. She discovered that she can use her crib rail to practice!

Here are two videos of Bee with the dogs at FAO!

P.S. Bee's two top teething are breaking through her gums right now! Ouch! She is having trouble sleeping but hopefully they will be out soon!

It's Da Da Day!

Happy Father's Day!!!!!!!!!!
It is a very special day! It's Cory's first father's day (or da da day as Bee would say!).
I am blessed to have a great dad, a great father-in-law and a husband who is the best dad!
Thank you all so much!
Also, Happy Father's Day to my grandpas and other special dad's in my life!
Here are some old photos of our dads!




Bee watching mama this morning while she was eating a peach.
For father's day I made Cory a bouquet of 2 dozen bow ties!
One of the first things Cory showed me when I walked into his room 6 years ago was his collection of vintage bow ties (that belonged to his grandpa). He loves bow ties! I wanted to make him a bow tie in many different types of fabrics and materials. Here is the first 24 I have made!
We went to our first Opera last night! I Tre Compagni (The Three Companions).

We met Aimee at the show! She is on the plane back home! We will miss her!


This picture was taken during the curtain call. The Composer (Louis Gioia) is in front.
On the walk to the subway we went passed the Plaza Hotel. It was a beautiful misty NYC night.

On Friday, we went to FAO Schwartz.
Bee loves this place!

The biggest doggie we could find!
A wall of doggies! Bee was sooo excited! She was making her excited face! She looks sad but believe me...she was happy!
I think Bee thinks that this was a real doggie!

Notice her hands...this is how she approaches new things.

Mommy I want candy!

Bee has to center her weight just right in order to set off the lights!

Cory and Annie and 3 years of Wedded Bliss

I love my husband!






Aimee just got to NY! She will be at my house any minute!





An 8month old Bee!

Little Bee looks cute in the outfit MaryBeth brought back from Italy!
We asked a friend to come to our house while Bee was sleeping so we could go out for a dinner and...We got the "Baby Sitter's Club!"
It was fun having Jessica back in town for a few days! Chris, Bee and Jessica!
Gaia and Bee hang out while the mommies prepare kale chips for dehydration! Bee and Gaia have fun playing together! They live only a few blocks from each other too!

Amy (Gaia's mom) and I made kale chips at her house. The don't look and sound great but they are amazing!!!! They are dehydrated! The topping is cheeselike too! (red bell peppers, cashews, nutritional yeast, lemon juice or pineapple chunks, salt and cayenne!) You must try some! Amy and her husband Joe own a health food store in the neighborhood (NY Naturals) and I started working there a few hours, two nights a week while Bee is asleep. It's fun working in a juice bar again!
Bee and her favorite page! She can tough the white fur on the kitty!

Bee turned 8months old on the 13th!
Bee and I went for a walk to some stoop sales and we found a fun Bee Hive!!!!

Mommy and an 8month old Bee in her party dress I made!
Me, Bee, Wendy, and Sue Rock! Sue Rock Originals a non-profit textile company is a few blocks away from my house! I am going there tonight for a sewing class! I want to get better at sewing and learn more complicated techniques! I hope to make some clothes for the women that Sue Rock supports.
---Sue Rock Originals Everyone, Inc is the only textile charity committed to supporting the lives of survivors of domestic violence. With such a small percentage of women leaving domestic violence situations nationwide, we felt it was important to provide direct support to these women who have made the courageous first steps towards change. Each year SROE partners volunteers with the raw materials to create NEW clothing and accessories they will need as they live in transitional housing. Many times women leaving the cycle of violence only have their basics upon entering a residence. Volunteers create handknit and hand crocheted sweaters, shrugs, bags, tops and so much more!



Look what Bee wants for her 8 month Bee-day!!! A Shit-zu!!! So cute! Bee wants to hug and sqeeze the puppy so bad! The 10week old puppy is named Honey!
Honey and Bee! They were meant for each other!
Brunch at Chavella's with Will and Cristina!
Cristina has been in training to be a yoga teacher and she came over yesterday and gave me a private yoga lesson. It was amazing! She is a great teacher!
Today is our actual wedding anniversary but last night I gave Cory his present! I fixed up his un-usable roller blades as a surprise! It is hard to keep a surprise from your husband when you live in a small apartment! But he had no idea! Teddy came over last night while Cory and I went for a "roll."
