Today, by a miracle of miscommunication, Anna and I ended up with all three girls for the afternoon. We all decorated Easter eggs - terrific fun - and did some painting as well. I'm not in the slightest bit artistic, but it seems like Alice has picked up that gene from her daddy - she loves to paint and color and draw. We had a great time.

Then we walked to Chipotle to meet Michael for dinner. The sunshine was out, and the weather perfect. On our walk home, we passed a huge snow mound - remnants of a film shoot on the Barnard campus today. Alice loved climbing up with daddy!!! A lovely evening all around.

Perfect Saturday

Today started at 9 AM, when our sweet, sleeping daughter woke up. Happy. At 9 AM.

Our apartment was full of gorgeous sunshine, nothing but blue skies all around us. Alice was happy to let us put her sweet hair in pigtails, put her bangs up in a barrette.

We took our typical Saturday stroll through Central Park, including a stop at the Central Park Zoo. Alice LOVED the animals. We watched the Gus, the Polar Bar, swim:

We petted the cow and the alpaca:

We walked by the St. Patrick's Day Parade, clapping for the bagpipes and the drums. We went and ate Chipotle, and on the train ride home Alice said, "Momma happy. Daddy happy. Alice happy."

Yes, sweet love. Exactly.

Have you seen how adorable my baby is lately? Because it's pretty insane. Very overwhelmingly lovely.

There's a lot on the brain these days, but not enough time to write about them. But let me tell you about something wonderful: Today, I had to attend a training for work. We ended early, and so Michael and I met for a drink before picking up Alice from daycare. We were grown ups, spending time together, not chasing after a toddler. Fabulous.
