Jackie Geschwind said...

joanna...you wouldn't have to deal with those long winters anymore if you move to los angeles!;) big fan of your blog, btw.

Erika Peterson said...

He is literally one of the cutest babies I've ever laid eyes on. Adorable!

Joanna Goddard said...

i know, jackie--LA is actually our go-to escape fantasy during long dreary NYC winters :)

Lotta said...

That looks so wonderful! playgrounds are lovely, i love them even though i don't have any baby :) i feel like one myself when i reach the swing. btw toby totally has your eyes, so cute! it's really nice to follow how he grows up. i've been wondering one thing lately while following your blog, have you ever thought of how toby will feel when he gets older and there's a whole blog of stories about his childhood?

have a nice mother's day :)

Naurnie said...

lotta, i hope he likes reading through it! i try not to put anything on here that might embarrass him later :) but who knows? maybe blogs won't exist when he's older!

Joanna Goddard said...

Ahhh, so cute. I missed the sun so much. I believe our Canadian weather was similar to your NY weather.

Happy Mothers day! Enjoy your little man ;)

Caitlin said...

That first photo is just too much! gah that smile! Thanks for sharing these. Just came back from lunch on a bench in Union Square and was thinking the same thing, how wonderful some time in the sun felt after this ridiculous winter.

Toby's just precious and I see both of you in his very expressive face!

Happy Mom's Day.

Gorgeous, although the swing photo scares me a little...small children on swings make me nervous! xx

Caitlin said...

I remember reading that picnic club post last year and wanting to organize one but never got around to it, but I'm hopeful for this summer. Sorry for the shameless plug, but my friends at Zampa on W. 13th prepare picnic baskets for afternoon excursions around the city if anyone wants a little help in putting something together! http://www.zampanyc.com/Html/picnicbaskets.php
