Four Months Old

May 15th, 2015

four months 1

Your ever-increasing propensity to smile. It is the most fun.

Your new adventures with your nanny Nadine and your baby friend, Bash.

How you do NOT like to be burped. Seriously. You cry as soon as I position you over my shoulder to burp you.

Your first tooth. No joke. happened about a week ago. (You can almost see it in the photo below.) Read the rest of this entry »

denim jumpsuit 3

Well, it happened. I bought a denim jumpsuit. (Ok–two of them.) And I figured out how to style it. (With these high tops.) It’s incredibly comfortable, although I do sometimes feel like I should be working in an old-timey auto body shop. Read the rest of this entry »

Judge’s Day Out (a.k.a. My Birth Story)

April 18th, 2015


We arrived at the Kaiser Permanente Hospital in San Francisco at 10:00am on Thursday, January 15, 2015. I was all nerves and excitement. Chip was cool as a cucumber, as usual. Brian and Natalie drove me and my mom to the hospital. Friends really are the best. Chip took the scooter so he could run out and quickly get anything we needed. I think it will be fun to tell little Judge that someday: “Your dad drove a scooter to the hospital the day you were born.”

The New-Mom Problem with Rompers

I love a good jumpsuit or romper. It’s one pice of clothing and you’re done! Like putting on a dress except you can sit cross-legged! You don’t have to worry about matching your top and bottom because THEY’RE THE SAME FABRIC!
