I will not even tell you how long I spent in Trader Joe’s trying to figure out what I had put on my grocery list that had been autocorrected to “Penis”.

Then I noticed Fergie had included a few more additions to my grocery list.

We went to the Hawk Watch Festival at Greenwich Audubon on Saturday and while Gemma had approximately zero interest in watching the hawks, the bunny was a big hit, getting a hug and a kiss. It probably helped that the bunny resembled Nate.

After a fun and busy weekend, this little monkey seems to have come down with something. So far today has been filled with snuggles, yo gabba gabba, vomiting from crying too hard (3 times!) and peeing on the carpet while I ran a bath.

Fergie - why are we dyeing the pasta instead of eating it?
Me - because I spend too much time on Pinterest, obviously

My Aunt Kathleen, who’s a nutritionist, teamed up with Martha Stewart’s personal trainer to create a healthier coffee enhanced with green tea, Yerba matte and astralagus and you know what? It’s actually really good. It’s called ULIVJava and it’s under the Martha Stewart umbrella of products. That’s them with Martha on her radio show the other day.

They’re working on getting distribution at the moment, and right now the iced coffee is available in some grocery stores in NYC, Long Island and Westchester.

The ground coffee, which I like so much I purchased when my samples ran out, is available on eBay & the ULIVjava website. I think it tastes chocolatey, without even adding anything - my aunt said that’s the astralagus.

I have some coupons for a free iced coffee that I swiped from my Mom (she’s been doing tastings to help out), so if anyone wants one, feel free to send me your address. Don’t worry, you’re not signing up for any kind of distribution list or anything. It will literally just be me writing your address on an envelope and popping it in the mail.

I wasn’t compensated at all for this - I just actually like it!

I feel like it’s a rite of passage for a toddler to have a picture of themselves climbing in a cabinet and playing with pots and pans.

Shh, don’t tell Fergie’s work that he’s not actually traveling today. He was at a weekend conference and flew back yesterday, but told his office that he’s traveling today.

The original plan was for Fergie to go kayaking this morning, but the place was closed so we made an impromptu trip to the park where we saw some trains (choo choo!) and geese (ducks! close enough).

I swear, every day she surprises me with a new word. It’s just amazing to see that all this chatting I’ve been doing to her since she was born has actually sunk in.

Currently her favorite words are “shoes”, “eyes”, “car” and unfortunately for Nate and me, “no”

Fearless. 

She tried to pet the stingrays too but her little arms were too short to reach.

I’m not sure what it says about my parenting style that she refuses to put the cell phone and maraca down so she can push with both hands.

Apparently the St Leo carnival is a Stamford summer tradition, so we had to make a trip up there.

Pizza fritti is the thing to get, either savory like above with sauce and cheese, or sweet with powdered sugar and Nutella.

I cannot tell you how embarrassed Fergie was to win that giant dog for Gemma. He said he felt like he was stealing since he won it on the first try. Gemma on the other hand was thrilled!
