While I'm in Maine

Elliot has run the "Hudson Cup" and learned to enjoy the sprinklers at the park. (Photos courtesy of Chris's blackberry, so they are a bit fuzzy).

My Love Affair with HomeGoods

Sorry for the break in our regularly scheduled all-Elliot-all-the-time programming, but I just wanted to take a moment to say how much I love HomeGoods. Seriously. I want to kiss it. Particularly whenever I sit in my comfy new desk chair (belated birthday present from my mom) or my less comfy, but still very well loved living room chair.

If you haven't ever shopped at HomeGoods, give it a try. Trust me--it's jam packed with eclectic, fun stuff and it's extremely affordable (I'd never buy sheets or towels anywhere else). You'll thank me for the tip.

Family Photos

We recently had family photos done by Blue Lily Photography. I really liked how they turned out. Here are a few of my favorites. Any advice on which ones we should order prints of?

Rain, Rain, Go Away!

Dear Weather Gods-

If you send us one more day of rain, we won't share our cookies with you. Seriously.

Eating Sand, Take Two

Remember this post?

Well, I thought we'd moved on from there. Leaps and bounds beyond. Elliot no longer ate lint off the carpet, no longer put shoes in his mouth, and even stopped chewing on his toys.

Turns out I was wrong. Today, during a quick jaunt to the playground, I turned around and caught Elliot shoving fistfuls of sandbox sand into his mouth. Fistfuls of dirty, NY city playground sand.


I guess I should credit the kid with some progress. After a few good chews, he did conclude that it was "yucky" and spit it out.

A word of advice: You'll feel a lot better about all this if you don't stop to wonder how many rats have used that sand as their litter box. Trust me on that one.
