Day At The Beach

We went boating and to Shell Island!

The Birdie

Is Piera giving Siena the finger?
Bad, Piera, bad.

Heroine Chic

They were just watching American Idol, but Piera and Siena's latest playdate bore a striking resemblance to a Hitchcock movie.

Sailor Hats

Piera and Siena looked so cute in their new sailor hats.

The UFO Chair, Part Deux

Piera borrowed this cradle swing from Adara. It puts her own vibrating seat to S.H.A.M.E.

Baby Love

Piera's new friend, Adara, showed her some love. And an empty bottle.

Meeting Siena

Siena was born on December 15th, nine days before Piera. Today, Mama, Piera, Siena and Samantha (Siena's mama) went to lunch!
Piera was really hungry.

First Plane Ride

Jetblue flight #61 to Florida.

Genius Baby

Piera has learned how to remove her pacifier...but not how to get it back in.

Go Patriots


Tom Brady is hot, even with a bum knee.
Piera always roots for Daddy's teams.
There's always next year.

Sunday Finest

Dwell Studio for Target makes the sweetest baby clothes and bedding, like this bird print onesie that's making Piera so happy today.

Got Milk?

Daddy is from Vermont. There are a lot of cows there. Moo.


She dropped her pacifier again.

It's over by your right knee, little Piera.

Wake Up, Daddy

At least someone is sleeping through the night....

Couch Potato

Piera settled in for some good Sunday night TV.

What Happens At Grandma's

In two weeks Piera is headed to see Grandma in Florida.

The shirt says it all.

Bad Table Manners

Hey, it was more comfy than a highchair.

Rainy Evening

Cozy in her Uppa Baby stroller, Piera didn't need an umbrella.

PS. Sad news: Piera's Grandpapa Thibault passed away today. We will cherish this picture.

Stranger Danger

Who is this crazy guy feeding our baby?

New Snowsuit

Piera has gotten so big, it's time to retire Mama's favorite newborn size snowsuit. On the bright side, our pint-sized fashionista grew into this adorable teddy bear one.

PS. Dear fan club members: Please excuse the absence of updates over the past few days. Mommy and P. have been trekking to Brooklyn, Long Island, upstate New York, and Vermont, not to mention Mommy had a fever of 103... She is feeling better now and plans to post lots of great new pictures of the little princess soon!

Meeting Sofia

From strangers to BFF in 60 seconds flat.

Face-Off: Gymboree Versus Carters

Notice anything similar about these onesie/bib sets?

The question is: Which designer copied which?

25 Things

The "25 Things About Me" craze is sweeping the Internet. Here are 25 things about Piera:

1. When she was born she weighed 7 lbs, 14 oz and was 21 inches long. Two weeks later, she weighed 7 lbs, 13.5 oz and was 20.5 inches long. She shrunk...
2. But now she's well over 10 lbs!
3. The alternate name Mommy and Daddy considered was Cassandra Rose.
4. If she was a boy, Piera would have been named King.
5. She'll take her first airplane ride on February 25. She'll be two months old since...
6. She was born on Christmas Eve.
7. It was a very fast labor. Mommy was only in the Birth Center for three hours and forty-five minutes before Piera arrived. She was born "sunnyside up", just like her mother.
8. She likes to wake up with the roosters, but then she usually goes back to sleep.
9. She can relate to the Princess and the Pea. Napping is much easier in her carseat, stroller or Mom and Dad's bed than in her bassinet. The mattress is too hard for sleeping!
10. She looks just like her mom and mom's siblings did when they were babies.
11. Her eyes are blue and Mommy doesn't think they're going to change.
12. When she had a bad case of baby acne at 3 weeks old, Mama took Piera to the pediatrician; it went away the next day.
13. She's a l'il fashionista: Her favorite clothing brands are Baby Gap, Janie and Jack and Carters.
14. And she already owns Converse, gladiator sandals, Crocs and furry boots—but she doesn't walk yet.
15. She sucked her thumb in utero.
16. She nurses and bottle/formula feeds. She doesn't believe in "nipple confusion".
17. Her appetite is prodigious.
18. Daddy makes her smile and laugh a lot; his voice is funny!
19. Lots of people think she's a boy, but Uncle Chris just calls her "it".
20. Mommy wants her to take ballet and Daddy wants her to play baseball—someday.
21. She loves other kids. When her friend Elijah came to visit, Piera kept trying to touch and grab him but Mommy wouldn't let her...
22. Not that Piera usually listens to much of what Mommy says.
23. Sometimes she has tummy time on her Gymini playmat.
24. The first movie she saw was Benjamin Button. She let out a big fart during one of the quiet scenes.
25. She loves to cuddle. If you let her, she'll sleep on your chest for hours.

Lunch Time

Some would call this bottle feeding. To Piera, it's just another 4 oz. down the hatch.

Say Uncle

Too bad Uncle David is still in high school: Mommy and Daddy are in the market for a good nanny—er, manny.

Friday Outing

Mommy and Piera spent the day on the Upper West Side. They had lunch with Eboni, went to Barnes and Noble, and visited the midwife who delivered Piera. Everyone admired Piera's cozy shearling hat.

Piera was so flattered she...slept the whole time.

That Dress

Just six weeks ago it was baggy on her!

Coaxing A Smile



According to The New York Times, babies instinctively know that a little dirt helps develop your immune system. Excellent news for us, since Piera only bathes once a week.

But she sure does look cute posing for the camera with Mama in her pink hooded towel.

Daddy Daycare

Mommy had business outside of the house for 10 hours today, so Daddy watched Piera. This was the photo he sent Mommy on her cellphone.

Talk about hitting the bottle.

Sweet Dreams

This is Piera's baby kimono set from Belabumbum. Mommy has a matching one!

Too Small

Everyday it seems like we're adding something to the pile of clothes that Piera is outgrowing....

Sharing Is Overrated

Piera had fun with her boyfriend, but she decided there was only room for one baby on her Gymini playmat.

Where It All Began

This is Mommy and Daddy shortly after they met in the summer of 2006. After an 8-hour long sailing expedition, Daddy asked Mommy to be his +1 at his cousin's wedding.


16 hours a day, baby.

Sign Language

Is Piera giving the camera the sign of the devil? Uh oh.

Super Bowl Sunday

Piera had her first playdate with her new friend Elijah. She kept trying to get his attention. No luck.

After awhile, she gave up.

They took turns with the Touch Down rattle.

Unfortunately, they were both rooting for the losing team. Oh well, there's always next year!
