Happy Halloween!

Our little miss was Angelina Ballerina for Halloween today. Unfortunately, her teacher at school mixed up the cameras and didn't take any pictures of her, but we made up for it when we got home.
And we pretend-trick-or-treated (because there aren't many places to trick-or-treat in our area... and this kiddo does not need any more candy!)

Sasha's first haircut!

Today, Sasha got her first real haircut (let's not talk about what happened when mama tried to give her bangs a trim two weeks before her 1st birthday, ok?) She did so well, and seemed to really enjoy it, as manifested by "I want to get another haircut" the minute we stepped out of the salon.
I didn't really get a "before" shot, but here's Sasha with her hair down a couple of weeks ago:

This is the "almost before" shot from today:
Do you see how long her hair has gotten?
And here she is getting her haircut:

We bought a house!

Oh. My. God. What have we gotten ourselves into? Yesterday afternoon, we closed on our new house. This was the easiest, fastest closing in the history of closings, ever! Ok, maybe not, I'm not sure, but compared to our first closing with our current condo, where the two partners selling it to us had a fight smack in the middle of it, and where we sat stupidly for hours on end, this one was super fast and easy!
I've started packing (and panicking). Tomorrow, an electrician is coming to put in the overhead lights in the bedrooms, then tapers this weekend, then we're in Vegas all next week, and then finally painters the week after that. And guess what happens after painters? We move in! So that leaves us a little over two weeks to pack and sell our condo. Panic mode!
But here's motivation:

Was she really ever this tiny?

I'm going through Sasha's baby clothes right now (and giving them to a friend's brother who's expecting a little girl soon) and found this little white dress she wore when she was 3 months old. Naturally, she wanted to try it on.
OMG, how is this possible?! How did my little baby girl get so big and grown-up??
Sasha at 3 months old
Sasha at 3 years and (almost) 2 months old

I'm so looking forward to having another little baby to cuddle and hug and squeeze and love on!

Family fun day!

We went to the Bronx Zoo today! And you know what's better than going to the Bronx Zoo with your family on a beautiful October Saturday? Going for free! Z's company had their yearly Family Fun Day there and all the tickets (and parking, and the food) were included. Plus, Sasha got to see giraffes, ride a bug carousel, and get her face painted! Such a fun day!
Later in the evening, we headed to Z's grandma's birthday and had a blast (mostly dancing)!

Four years!

Today, we're celebrating our fourth wedding anniversary. It's been a pretty crazy ride, with its highs and lows, but filled with so much love and happiness. We're watching our wedding video (as we do each year) and I gotta say I'm tearing up a little... but that could just be the crazy hormones!
I'm so glad I picked this man to be my partner and the father of my kids (yeah, I'm getting used to using the plural too!) Happy anniversary, honey, and as you like to say "Here's to many more". Love you!

Family fun at the aquarium

On Sunday morning, we headed to the aquarium. We love love love that place (we do not love paying $40 just to get in and then another $30 for the pretty crappy food, but what are you going to do!)

I will get a dance at a wedding!!!

We're having a little boy!!! We had an appointment yesterday and took a look at our baby Honeydew and the little one is definitely a he! The baby looks perfectly healthy and measuring a bit ahead (but my dr. doesn't want to move my due date, so we might just end up with a large baby again - Sasha was 8lbs1oz when she was born). When we told Sasha she was going to get a little brother, she looked at us, disappointed, and said "But I asked for a sister"... and yes, we do have this on camera!
The poor kid might remain nameless until he's here, because we're having a hard time coming up with a boy's name, so for right now he will be known as baby Honeydew (Sasha is Watermelon, don't ask, a very long story!)

Oh, and p.s. I've been asked a few times if I was showing yet, so here's a picture of me from yesterday, 17 weeks pregnant (yes, in a Target fitting room):

Beach day!

A beach day in October? Well, why not? I'll take all the sunshine I can get! It was in the mid-eighties yesterday, so kiddo and I headed to the beach to hang out.
