this and that + newborn picture preview

+I've been watching Parenthood (free via Amazon Prime, streamed through our Apple TV- highly recommend both), and am now on season 3. I can't decide if I love this show, or am just in too deep to stop watching at this point. Either way I watch at least an episode a day and I have no idea what I'm going to move on to when I finish the series.

+The weather here in Cincinnati over the next few days is going to be in the upper 60's and lower 70's. I am SO excited for some reasonable temperatures, and hope to get out of the house for a walk a few times in the next week or so. The things that excite me these days…

+Tuesday we had Norah's newborn pictures taken. Since she was hooked up to a zillion wires in the hospital, and I never managed to make myself look even remotely presentable during that time, I was really looking forward to these pictures. We got a few of us as a family and plenty more of just the baby. Our photographer shared a sneak peek and they are fantastic, to put it lightly. I can't wait to see the rest and start ordering prints to put around the house.

+I'm almost finished with Norah's birth story. I just need to add pictures and finish up the last bit of recapping. I can't wait to share what will most likely be two really long posts, or three shorter installments. I didn't want to leave anything out!

+I have a Baby K'tan wrap for Norah. I like it, but I don't love it. I was totally overwhelmed by the number of baby wraps and carriers available, and even more overwhelmed about all the info regarding which ones are safe for baby's hips. If any of you have a recommendation for a baby wrap or carrier that is good for newborns, I'm all ears!

That's all for now. Happy Thursday!

Those pictures are beautiful! We didn't get any decent pictures of us in the hospital either -sad but true. Eh, the pictures are all in our head, right?

There are so many types of carriers/wraps! It really is hard to know which one you prefer until you actually use it for a bit. Your best friend might love one and you just think it's so-so. My favorite ended up being the Infantino Mei Tai carrier. My sisters had a box of different carriers and wraps and a friend gave me another one -but of all of those ones [and they were free!] they just didn't work for me and I went out and got a different one. I'm glad I did too! I hope you are able to find one that you love!! They are so nice when you do find a good one :)

and again - those pictures!! love them!

I'm in cincinnati too! And so happy to have these cooler days :) My hubby and I are watching Parenthood also... I really do like it a lot, I cry just about every episode, but it's pretty predictable!

Congrats on your beautiful daughter, these photos are just precious!
