Last week we were just coming home....

This week we are up to all sorts of good things! Our little Finn is changing so quickly. I really love this teeny stage and I know it'll be gone in a blink of an eye.
We have taken our first walks in our ergo and in our stroller (a little picnic in the park), had friends come by for cuddles, sponge baths and more!

We couldn't be more in love with her! Gabe and I are doing well and my mom is here taking really good care of us. I haven't eaten so well in 9 months (thankfully she has also made meals to freeze so that we can continue to enjoy her cooking!). She is sleeping really well and we get btw 2-3 hours of sleep btw each feed. She is eating well and I am anxious to see how much she gained when we go back to the doctor on Wed. (fingers crossed she is back to her birth weight). During her awake time we read, sing and dance. Gabe and I are trying to sleep when she sleeps during the day but that isn't the easiest.

Now to the pics. My brain isn't quite working so I know this little update is all over the place!
Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes!

End of Finn's first week

* I feel I need to add a disclaimer to this post! No one was harmed in the taking of these photos:) I got a little wild and crazy here. The tutu is her halloween costume as we aren't much of a tutu family but i had a moment of weakness in the Gap while talking to Aunt Katie on the phone.

Our daughter is HERE!!

Finnegan Marie Robinson has joined our little family....and let me tell you she is the most perfect addition. Her birthday is 9/18 born at 2:32, 7 pounds 15 ounces (holy cow almost 8 pounds) and 20 1/2 inches long. She is the most beautiful thing Gabe and I have ever laid our eyes on (we are biased but she's SO cute!). She has a full head of black hair and tends to look like my Italian roots but that is still debatable.

Will post pictures soon but we are all doing well. We head home tomorrow and jump in feet first. We are so thankful to be entrusted with this little life.

Tornado in the hood

A tornado went through Park Slope yesterday! Everyone is safe and our apartment didn't get hit but it was nuts out there. I was working at the dining room table when the sky went black and then the torrential downpours started with the wind. You couldn't see anything outside it was so strong. I closed the windows and went to comfort Ms. Dakota who was hiding behind the crib (which is still empty...come on Ms. Finn!).

Then in the thick of it my "knight in shining armor" arrives. He looks like he just jumped in a pool with all of his clothes on. He actually stood in the hallway and handed me all his soaking clothes. He said debris was flying everywhere and he couldn't see a thing in front of him. Thankfully he made it home safely.

We took a walk last night around 8 and there were tree's everywhere...took a few pics, they didn't really turn out but for your viewing pleasure~

This one is two doors down

I will NOT

Have a baby at work!
Yes...I have 12 days till my due date and I no longer have to trek into the city to work. I am beyond excited. I have my laptop in tow and will now be working at my dining room table- in my pjs with my pup at my feet.

Come on can break any time now, I'm not scared of you!
