Grandma, uncle and the Yankees
I can't decide which is my favorite photo from the weekend. The one of Fay alone in her little yankee cheerleading outfit. Or the one with Fay, Andy, and Ryan's gigantic smile at the yankee game. Fay must be doing something right because her Daddy NEVER smiles for photos like that. Usually he makes a little smirk or worse, opens hie mouth in a way that makes you NOT want to take the photo.
We had a very fun weekend with Sandy and Andy in town for Memorial Day. We started out on Friday night with a dinner show at the Loews Regency Hotel featuring Bebe Neuwirth. The show was great, and the venue was neat - a very small intimate space centered around a piano on a stage.
On Saturday we all piled on the subway and took the long hike up to the Bronx for the yankee game. Fay's first yankee game. Fay enjoyed it thoroughly as her daddy got her special ground floor tickets. We were just off of right field and we could see Johnny Damon pacing.
Sunday was more relaxing with brunch and a long walk to the park. Then today, Memorial Day, we reved it up again with a trip to the Belmont Race Track. This morning Sandy and Andy left for the airport and Ryan, Fay and I headed out for our annual trip to the races. We picnicked on pastrami and strained carrots. And Fay had her first teether biscuit.
Actually, as far as firsts go, Fay was gnawing on a lot of larger items this weekend -- an apple, a pair and the biscuit. She has these two lower teeth that she is dying to use. And she likes to grab at what we are eating if she is near the dinner table. So we tried handing her a little fruit and she really enjoyed it. I think she likes to do a little more mimicing than she has in the past. Wants to do some big girl things!
Speaking of big girls, we lowered Fay's crib platform tonight. She's been pushing her little torso up so that she can see over the bars when she cries out in the morning. So I thought it was time to sink the platform down to a safer level. No sense in waiting for her to prop herself up on the railing before lowering it. :)
