My Buddy

Henry and I took the MetroNorth train (Henry’s first time in Grand Central and on Metro-North) to Fairfield, Connecticut to visit Jessica, Gray and Isla Burn. Jessica and Gray’s baby, Isla was born in June 2012, so she and Henry are not too far apart. Although in baby time, it is pretty amazing what a difference even two months makes as far as development. Isla is almost eating two solids a day while Henry is still drinking his food. It was fun for the two kids to meet and it was nice for me to catch up with my good friends. Here are some photos of the two just hanging out. Many forced poses by parents, of course.

This hand holding pose was not forced. Henry fell into Isla and it looked as though she was trying to hold his hand. What a flirt.

Henry’s New Year’s Eve

Mark, Henry and I traveled uptown to Central Park for New Year’s Eve. I have always wanted to run the Annual Emerald Nuts Midnight Run that takes place on New Year’s Eve. This year seemed like a good time to add to the new adventures list: have a baby, run at midnight!

We met our friends, Cara, Aaron and their daughter, Sierra (plus a few of their friends) on the Upper West Side before the race and headed down to the start line a little before 12 a.m. Mark carried Henry in the Ergo carrier while I ran the race. There were fireworks which Henry took in stride and he mostly slept through the cold and loud music at the park.
