awww that is a fantastic shot! and I LOVED your Monday post, I suffered PPD after both births of my girls and it was the scariest, loneliest, darkest feeling . . . i sought the help of a postpartum therapist, but i think sharing these things are the most important gift mammas can give to each other (i shared my stories on my blog). . . you are a beautiful soul xoxox E

Cute, cute pic! And your post about depression - very thoughtful and brave. I always sort of slouch through this time of year - where is SPRING? In fact, my last blog post is about Winter Doldrums. Glad you are feeling so, so much better!

That is adorable! His body language suggests he is genuinely moved. And he is such a little guy!! Hehe.

I just squealed & the cat jumped:)

Very cute! I am always impressed when I see families with little ones at art galleries and museums. Too many people are probably afraid to bring their kids - but it's a great experience for them! Good for you!

Megan said...

So cute! I need to start checking out some galleries. Any recommendations on ones?

Lemanie said...

Aww! Look at the lil guy!! =)

Augh- a tiny hipster! I love his little red hat!
And he looks pretty at home in that gallery too.

This is too cute! My friend and I have a saying, regarding babies, "That is so cute, it makes my uterus hurt!" Definitely applicable on Toby's pictures :)

I wonder what he's thinking while he ponders the art?!

Joanna Goddard said...

thanks for these cute comments! when you go gallery hopping, you can just walk down a few streets in Chelsea and hit a bunch in a row (keep in mind that they're generally closed on Sundays). and you can look on the website for the new yorker magazine for listings, or check out these tips from my NYC guide: http://joannagoddard.blogspot.com/2011/09/nyc-guide-10-amazing-things-to-do.html

Oh that sweet boy! It is so fun to pal around with them, isn't it?! That little pose in a red hat and green jacket, love! Milo has a little green rain coat that makes my heart swell every. time.

Simone said...

Great photo :)

Trina said...

I've always loved the idea of taking kids to see art and "unstuffing" the sometime "stuffiness" of it. Just a couple of weekends ago, my brother and I took my 5-year-old nephew to an art museum and I had fun with him identifying parts of certain paintings and sculptures.

This is such a cute picture! Toby looks so tiny compared to those big men.

What a great picture. It makes me think of the book Olivia, which you may or may not have read since it is a girl kid book.

SKC said...

OMG so cute! I think his red toque puts it over the top for me.

Apparently my writing friend who writes for Fit Bottomed Mamas went thru the same thing you went thru but she had no clue why. I sent her your post :) ♥ you're helping so many women figure it out.

glad you made it thru unscathed and can now enjoy the simple sweet moments.
