Baby AB’s Fashion Blog – Issue #14: Salmon and Carmine

Posted on August 26th, 2013

When we were kids, we had one jillion pencil crayons, courtesy of my dad. Mostly Laurentians and Prismacolors. They were kept in three old sorbet containers, one for warm colours, one for cool colours, and one for neutrals. We spent a lot of time colouring, and knew well the nuances of Deep Yellow versus Lemon […]

Nothing like a trip to the emergency room to put things in perspective.

Posted on August 20th, 2013

Dear Baby AB, Sometimes you frustrate me. Sometimes you scream way louder than is called for, and sometimes your melodrama gets tiresome. Your reluctance to let me do simple, important things (like change your diaper or wipe your face) is aggravating. But know this: I love you more than waterfalls and music and fresh peaches […]

The village that raises my children

Posted on July 30th, 2013

Family Camp 2013 at Camp NeeKauNis:   Where there was ALWAYS sand in my bed. Where we scored the luxury of a cabin with a bathroom (thanks for being a baby, Baby AB!). Where Sean was able to be with us for four happy days. Where we ate three home-cooked meals a day – none […]

Baby AB’s Fashion Blog – Issue #12: She’s Got Good Jeans

Posted on July 19th, 2013

Jeans on a baby are undeniably cute. Any time you see a baby in “grown-up” clothes, it just tickles the medial ventral pre-frontal cortex, amiright? Unfortunately, they’re not very practical – hard to get on the baby, and hard for her to sit properly with them on. Especially because she’s cloth-diapered and therefore has bubble-butt. […]

Baby AB’s Fashion Blog – Issue #11: Festivities

Posted on July 12th, 2013

Here is a special little fashion post in honour of my big brother. Happy birthday, Ben! Not counting her parents or her own big brother, you might say Uncle Ben is Baby AB’s biggest fan – and vice versa. Their faces light up when they see each other. What is particularly awesome is that Ben […]

Here we are. Two years.

Posted on July 8th, 2013

It’s here. This day has been homing in on me for weeks. As I begin to write this, at 2:21 p.m., it was exactly two years ago that my husband and I wandered around the mall with my induction prescription in hand, wondering how we’d manage family phone calls to tell everyone that the baby […]

Baby AB’s Fashion Blog – Issue #10: “Fruit Punch Plaid”

Posted on July 4th, 2013

Currently in our city, we’re experiencing warm and very humid weather. In truth, Baby AB is wearing mostly the minimum these days. (Which, as it happens, is the most delicious getup of all. I’ll do a feature soon.) Still, there’s a lot to be said for summer dresses. Lots of room for air. This is […]

Things to be grateful for when travelling with small children

Posted on June 26th, 2013

Travelling with little kids is tough and stressful. As such, it would be easy to kvetch about the monkey wrench in our travels to my cousin’s wedding in New Mexico last weekend – the storm that delayed our flight from Buffalo, meaning the folks at Washington Dulles didn’t have our gate ready, meaning we missed […]
