Birthday number three

Brock's birthday was yesterday. Which puts Dashiell right smack in the middle of us. A yummy baby birthday sandwich.

We celebrated with:



A late morning in bed. You can actually get 7-8 hours of sleep if you get in bed at 10 pm and get out at 10 the next morning.




Our first trip out in the Moby. We walked to Peets for celebratory lattes.




And french toast for breakfast at 2.



I made Molly's recipe and added cinnamon. I cannot have french toast without cinnamon.




Followed by a delicious dinner made by Melanie and Sky (pictured above, sorry should have mentioned that earlier) in our own kitchen. It was a good day. Except that Brock had to go back to work today. Starting a new job 1.5 months before your baby is due does not allow for ample time off. Poo, is what we say.

And thank you all for your super nice comments and wishes. It's amazing how normal this all feels, having our baby with us. We love it. Even though I could srsly use a nap today. Coming soon, I hope.

that baby dash is TO DIE FOR. rather, to eat cinnamonny-french-toast-with winter-strawberries-at-2pm for.

and what amazing friends to come over and cook dinner! in YOUR kitchen! we loves them.

happy napping, if you can squeeze it in! xo.

your baby is so amazingly beautiful! I am so happy for you 3. I saw Deja on Friday and she could barely walk in the door without me asking about you and your little one to be. So so so happy for you.
PS. why are you reading comments you should be sleeping {wink}

So weird, Charlie (our firstborn) is exactly halfway between our bdays! Enjoy all the sleepy snuggly time. :-)

What a wonderful-sounding day. I love nothing more than a great photo of a dad proudly wearing a Moby :)
And oh, that last photo is gorgeous. You are beaming with love.

i hope you are all feeling happy and healthy. SUCKS that your partner can't be home with you two during this oh-so-special time. Take photos, breathe deeply, these moments go so fast!

Thanks you guys!

Also, just to clarify: the last picture is Brock's brother Sky and his wife, Melanie. Not Brock and I. But they do make good looking parents, don't they?
