It's been a while! Having a newborn means I never get to update my blog anymore, I guess. I sat down a few times and promptly got distracted by something (i.e. fell asleep mid-sentence). But I took all these lovely photos recently and wanted to share them, so here I am posting from my iPhone.
After Z came, we were pretty much in a daze and now, 12 weeks in, I still spend my days primarily changing diapers, entertaining the baby, and being a human milk machine (ugh). But we also headed upstate twice for a change of scene and to enjoy the great autumnal outdoors. It's seriously the best time to visit the Hudson Valley!
The first time, we hiked a couple trails, including up to the Mohonk Mountain House. It's a strange place. Grand and ramble-y, an old timey resort that looks like it's frozen in time, but there are some pretty glorious views of the Shawgunk Ridge on the way up.
We stayed in High Falls, a small town to the west of the Hudson River. Our AirBnB was amazing! Check it out:
We also went up to Tivoli to visit a friend, and walked around the Bard campus for a while. It's gorgeous, sprawling, and right on the river. But being as lazy as I am, all I could think was how I would so not enjoying having to walk so far between classes.
A few weeks later, we went upstate again and stayed in a little red cabin in Red Hook.
We hiked some more trails, and went to the top of Burger Hill. After being indoors for most of September and October, it felt so good to be out of the apartment and the city.
And in case you were wondering, here he is. Presenting #babyZ!
