Totems

Colm watched Henry for awhile tonight and when Jacqui and I returned we found that they’d made little totemic representations of friends and family out of building blocks and puzzle pieces.

Hangin’ With the Ladies

Henry spent the end of the week playing with his girlfriends. Isla and Jessica came into town for a short visit on Thursday. Henry and Isla hadn’t been together since last year so they were happy to be reunited. Friday, Henry spent time with Aubrey and Halsey in Prospect Park. We are happy this has become a weekly event.

Take Me Out to the Bronx

Henry and I attended our first New York Yankees game in the Bronx tonight with friends, Colm and Eamonn.

I’ve got to be honest that I always thought if Henry were to express interest in baseball, I’d try to steer him towards Mets fandom since Yankees fans tend to be more arrogant and entitled. But Henry loved the atmosphere and had a great time so it looks like we could have a little Yankees fan here.

Colm and Eamonn, Minnesota natives and casual Twins fans, took it in stride when Alex Rodriguez hit a grand slam homerun in the seventh inning to give the Yankees the lead and eventual 8-4 win. Many thanks to Colm who organized and provided tickets.
