These are the days we’ve been waiting for. After a few weeks of cold weather and colds that seemed to never end, it feels like we finally entered Spring, so we spent it enjoying our city (both on and off Island:)). I’ll tell you, it sure is filled with everything Spring in NY has to offer. Cherry Blossoms, crisp air, energy and reach. I say reach because after a winter that instills hibernation the city suddenly becomes so much smaller when the temperature rises. A trip to Chelsea no longer feels like a trek and the Ferry is suddenly a main mode of transportation. Mostly this weekend brought the smile above out even more so than ever. Maybe it was his first lunch a Katz’s or his first walk on the bridge, whatever it was we can’t get enough. We had hit a few weeks of tantrum fests (where I think we all thought we were gonna lose our minds a little) and while they are not going away anytime soon they’ve subsided (not gone away) for the time being. And you can tell O along with the Cherry blossoms is blossoming into not only a full blown toddler but a full blown person.
We walk down the street and we hear him talking to himself in the stroller (that is when he’s not walking along side of it and pushing it down the street). It’s actually funny what goes on in the stroller. He sees things and people from a different perspective. I can’t tell you how many times we were on the train this weekend and I saw someone smiling or laughing and engaging with O in some way because that’s what he does. He makes eye contact, smiles, laughs and sometimes even makes funny faces at people without thinking twice about it. It’s nice to think that when they get off that train they’ll think of his little face for a few more moments and smile. He brings us so many.
Did we mention we love our city? Happy Spring!
