Three things to love about a weekend change of scene...

Waking up in a new place.

Finding unique challenges (and things to chew).

Gaining a fresh perspective.

It sifts from leaden sieves, It powders all the wood (E. Dickinson)

All bundled up and ready to go,

Our little bunny's very first snow.

And, scroll down for a Christmas post..

Lucy's First Christmas, Warm and Bright

Presents wrapped just for her.

Sparkly red tights on Christmas Eve.

Grandma's chin.

Grandpa's chin.

New friends all around.

Ten things to love about today

Photos taken this afternoon in honor of one of Lucy's favorite bedtime stories, Ten, Nine, Eight by Molly Bang

Ten chubby fingers, nice and brown

Nine tomatoes, rolling all around

Eight blue mugs in straight array

Seven giraffes, waiting to play

Six unmatched socks in a row

Five chocolate cookies, made with peanut butter dough

Four strong hands, two big, two small

Three new candles that smell like fall

Two squirming feet in a tiny heap

One perfect baby, fast asleep

Lucy's gramma's summer stations...

Perching at the crib.

Holding out the hooded towel.

Singing songs in the morning.

Welcoming Lucy

From very pregnant...

to watching the sun rise over the Boston skyline with little Lucy Lark.

We love her so.

Lucy from far away.

Lucy from nearby.

Holding Lucy close.

Three things to love about a visit from my dad...

Well, as the timing of this post shows, Lucy (this week the size of a melon) is starting to slow me down a bit. My dad's visit was a perfect break between lots of busy weeks at work trying to wrap things up before she comes and quite a few baby classes and appointments...
We took a little trip to Amherst for homemade onion rings and a visit to Emily Dickinson's house. These little white houses with her poems are everywhere right now.
My dad assembled Lucy's crib and rocking chair, put up her blinds and curtains, and a hundred other things we had been postponing for just the right moment. Isn't it starting to look ready for someone?
For his last night in town, we indulged Lucy's sweet tooth with these delicious ice cream samplers in the South End.

Around the house this March...

My silhouette isn't quite what it used to be.

First load of Lucy-laundry.

The house is full of picture books again. Only instead of writing papers, I'm planning to teach a workshop. Click here and scroll down a few and you'll see it in print:

Three Things to Love about February

Our first time back to Wilmington's blue skies since we moved! And a sweet stay at the Blue Heaven Inn--the last time I'd been there was with my mom, the night before my wedding.

Pre-Lucy nesting including the bright colors of this new shower curtain.

Enough flowers for even a thirtieth birthday.

A Very Lovable January

Making berry scones in my Christmas gift pan on a snowy Sunday morning.

A new job at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art.

It's a girl! We found out that we're having a little Lucy.
