During this part of our voyage, Bryan joined and we were lucky enough to get to stay with our friends Lauren and Michael. They live in a beautiful apartment in the Meatpacking District and since they have two fantastic little girls, they were all prepared for an infant. Mostly. I’m not sure anyone is prepared for Jonah’s special screams.
With this as our base camp, we tried to make the rounds to see all those people we love who were a constant part of our 6-year life there. Doing it with a stroller and bjorn made things more challenging. Undeterred…
Jeremy talked me up to the High Line. Okay, I get the hype.
Visited with Dana and Will. Will showing Jonah the deal on snuggles.
More friend visits, including a sidewalk stop by.
The most important thing about this Mets game was the delicious food at CitiField. And free hot dog night.
My old law firm. Well, not MY firm.
Most people get gifts for de bebe. Pas Mariel. She is awesome and got me a hair style at the salon at The Plaza. Probably the first and last time I’ll ever have reason to go there. Jonah, on the other hand, seemed taken.
Night out with friends at The Half King- one of my celebrated poor decisions. It was Fashion Week’s Fashion Night Out and the West Side was crawling with scenesters and the overtired 3-month old did not want to be at a loud bar. I think I spoke to each of our friends for 5 seconds and then proceeded, upon my quick stroller getaway, to roll right through an elaborate sidewalk art installation. People screamed at me from all 4 corners of the intersection.
We did get to walk for four blocks on the way to the bar with Ethan Hawke and his kids and his nanny-wife, Ryan. Honestly, what’s with all her tats? He lives in the area so maybe it’s not that exciting. But it was for me. He was in total dad-mode. Oh NY. Jeremy ran through Red Hook the other day, stopping to say hello to Matt Damon on his film set. I digress.
