Garrett’s birthday was four months ago, but we finally got around to doing his present! He loves helicopters so I knew a helicopter ride would be the perfect gift. (I gave him a toy helicopter with the gift certificate from Manhattan Helicopters for the ride on his actual birthday.) Between our two schedules, we couldn’t find a good time to go. Then I think we kind of forgot until I looked at the gift certificate and realized it expired at the end of January!
I’ve never ridden in a helicopter and it was completely different than I expected. I assumed the flight would feel choppy, but it was such a smooth ride! (Oh, and getting in the helicopter totally reminded me of the helicopter scene in Annie.)
I had the worst seat. It was just like the middle seat in a car, squished. The views were still great because the windows were huge, but it was difficult to get good photos since I couldn’t get that close.
Love this photo of Garrett with the Freedom Tower.
It’s so cool to see the city from this height and angle. Totally worth the trip whether or not you’re a tourist! We circled the Statue of Liberty and it was beautiful there with the city in the background.
If you want something fun or different to do, if you’re visiting or live here, you should definitely give the helicopter tour a try!
Have you done something touristy in your city that was super fun?
Can’t wait to fill Rory’s @petitekeep trunk with special memories and treasures 🏻 Jack’s is tucked away in his closet and every once in a while I open it up to store another item and reminisce on all the wonderful moments of his life so far. Love these keepsakes 🤍🍼👶🏼
After quite a tough pregnancy, from the first days all the way to the very end, I’m finally starting to feel like myself again! Nothing better than feeling a bit more “me.” I am trying to prioritize taking care of myself by carving out little slivers of time to do things that I enjoy… I don’t have unlimited time for hobbies, but I’ll take what I can get! I’m working on a couple of small needlepoint projects and I’m excited to start on Rory’s stocking soon🧵 🪡
My Valentine + Valentine Baby ❣️ After a very stressful start to the year, Rory’s birth felt like a bright light of hope and positivity. I’m so, so grateful for a healthy (and speedy!) delivery with Mike by my side.
(If you’re local, I switched to @madisonaveobgyn and this experience was night and day compared to my first pregnancy/delivery. I am *eternally* grateful for incredible care both during pregnancy and especially during delivery. It makes a huge difference.)
@get_nanit’s Pro Camera was one of the very first things I registered for with my first child and I just got a second one ahead of the birth of my second baby. It remains THE most used item from my registry– even two and half years later. It has given my husband and I the most peace of mind throughout every stage of our son’s development! With two way audio, split Screen, sleep reports, and personalized sleep tips we all sleep better.
