Rose visits Aunt Leslie

I went downtown many times last year while I was pregnant, but I made most of those trips on my own while Leslie was out of town. Rose's first trip to the city has been highly anticipated--we had the best weather, and typical Rose had no problem hanging out with us at brunch, taking long walks, and waiting for me and Leslie to pick out glasses at Warby Parker (ha!).

(I picked these and Leslie picked these.)

Haven't been to Garces Trading Co. in well over a year--love it there.  I always do the prix fixe brunch because you get a mimosa and your own basket of pastries.  This time I had the vegetable minestra, the smoked salmon with blinis, and the garden tea cocktail in addition to the mimosa--all of it was perfect.

It was really quiet on the sidewalk.

If you blow in her face, she laughs ... (if people blow in my face, I have to resist hitting them).

Please, Jesus, let her like us this much 13 years from now ...

We got off our butts and did more walking.  Born Yesterday is near Leslie's apartment--I never cared about it before Rose. Now, I want everything in there.

Nobody knows how to build anything this pretty anymore.

All the way down to Washington Square--lots of people there.

I mean, come on.

May so far

The whole time I was pregnant I remember looking at the gap between our chairs at dinner and wondering how weird it would be when someone was sitting in it ...

Leslie came home on Good Friday.

I got lipstick on her face
