feliz cumpleaños miguel!

being that i work full time and have a 6 month old baby at home, planning a party is not on the top of my list. however, i have THE BEST friends marisa, louise and elizabeth who helped me trick out a señor antonia birthday extravaganza. just add guacamole, homemade tamales, limeade, piñatas and the smilebooth and you have a bonafide good time. ¡gracias mis amigos!

elodie 6 months - new york, new york

elodie's first trip to nyc. let me tell you a little bit about traveling with a 6 month old. much easier to do with a first class upgrade on virgin air. i was going back east for a week of model casting, client meetings and work work work and couldn't bear the thought of leaving her at home. bringing the snap and go, her infant car seat and the ergo (the best baby carrier EVER!) were invaluable. super easy to gate check and i used the ergo when boarding the plane to keep my hands free (well, as free as you would imagine having diapers, wipes, toys, breast pump etc.) i think infants are easy breezy to entertain and i'm sure the toddler years are going to be a far cry from this semi-relaxing trip. also, strapping her car seat into the cabs was a cinch. my favorite was crossing the williamsburg bridge, heading down delancey and all of a sudden hearing the reggaeton blaring out of the windows. welcome to new york sweet elodie!

oh, and p.s., she loves her little sophie giraffe. worth every penny!

off, off and away!

this weekend i'm dreaming of spain. a picnic amidst the olive trees in cadaques, sea spray, garlicky tapas and a cold bottle of vino. oh and a siesta of course. those are pretty hard to come by these days. i took this photo from salvador dali's house in cadaqués, spain (one of my favorite spots in the world!)

a 6 month old's best friend

you gotta love the bumbo. it just keeps that wiggly little baby in place and helps them sit upright when normally they would be half slumped over on the couch. elodie looks pretty happy sitting in the adirondack. adorable photo by max wanger
