Noah’s bellybutton stump came off on day 9. He had his first submerged bath that night. He was not thrilled.

Hanging out in the Boppy.


Noah and Nana.

More Boppy time. It turns out this is a good way to keep Noah awake for a bit during the day, having him hang out in the Boppy while we coo and make funny faces at him.

Today at Gravelly Point, watching airplanes take off, braving the cool winds, and running around.

Carb overload.

Matty loves bread.
No, no, scratch that.
Matty LOVES bread.
His favorites lately include Rosemary Olive Oil and Sesame Semolina.
You know it’s a good bread when the chicken falls asleep whilst still clutching a slice.

Post-season craftiness.

Before we even knew the Red Sox would make it to the ALDS, let alone the championships, Matty and I set to work on some Boston crafty goodness for our front door.
