Because of my crazy work schedule, I have the luxury of enjoying 3, almost 4 day weekends every weekend.  Or it feels like it anyway.  So last Friday I got the chance to take baby Theo on our first solo sort-of-longish trip (almost 3 hours) to visit with a friend.  It worked out pretty perfectly.  We left during his morning nap time and came home at his bedtime.  All my fears about traveling alone with him (by car, less than 3 hours) were alleviated.  Anyway, we spent some time with Theo's "aunt" (translation ~ my BFF of 17+ years) and she took some adorable pictures of my adorable boy that I just had to share. 

We started off at a yummy local pizza place.  I think Theo was just happy to get out of the car seat!

We went to a park to give him a chance to stretch his chubby legs and take in some fresh air.  There were dozens of ducks in the water and he was mesmerized by them.
We couldn't have asked for a prettier day.
Look at that slobbery smile.  It was the first time he was actually big enough to really go in the baby swing.  I think he knew it was a momentous occasion.  And he LOVED it.
If that's not a look of pure joy, then I've never seen one.  Silly face, but definitely joy.
I love this sweet, rare, close-mouthed smile.
I love that he got his daddy's eyelashes.  But what's a mother supposed to do with hair like this?
We went to Barnes and Noble to relax and waste some time, then stopped at Penn Station for dinner before heading back to our respective homes.  I've tried to think of some ways that my baby boy could be cuter, but I just haven't come up with anything yet. 

I'm so lucky that he's such a happy little man.  And every time a friend asks to photograph him, I remind myself that I really must get a better camera.  He doesn't mind the photo shoots (this was his 3rd one in October).  I hope to add some pictures of his Fall/Halloween shoot very soon! 


  1. He's awesome! My favorite pic is the one with him in the swing with his eyes closed and the wind blowing his hair back. He looks so happy. Looks like you guys had a great time.

  2. So Cute! Cant wait to see him!

  3. He's so adorable! And the pictures are even better on the computer screen! :)
