BURGERS IN PARK SLOPE

Posted on: Thursday

Just a few shots of our afternoon in Park Slope...








After our second (and last) prenatal appointment at the hospital the other day, it was just about nap time for Biet, and just about lunch time for us.  So we strolled through the gorgeous brownstones until she fell fast asleep, and then Gaby and I had a little lunch date at a cute organic burger joint on 7th avenue.  Walk-the-baby-to-sleep-on-the-way-to-the-restaurant has kind of become our our go-to strategy for fitting "dates" into our lives lately.  If you've never tried it, I highly recommend it: no babysitter needed! Of course it helps that our baby can sleep peacefully in a noisy restaurant, and walking by garbage trucks, and in screeching subway cars... that's a city kid for you.

Over lunch we excitedly pored over the printout from the ultrasound. We had just witnessed our new little one twist and stretch and thumb-suck on the screen at the hospital, and now we couldn't stop looking at the pictures of those tiny hands, tiny limbs, and beautiful profile. We talked about the future. We talked about the great changes heading our way.  We celebrated the baby in my belly, whose gender had just been revealed to us.

Gaby and I have decided to keep the gender to ourselves for just a few days. It is the last bit of this pregnancy can be just ours for a little while, so we are telling only a select few, and happily letting ourselves be giddy and excited about our secret while it is still ours.

In a few days we will reveal everything. The most important thing, of course, is that the baby is perfect and healthy with the absolute lowest risks of all of the scary stuff.  I have had a deep feeling since the beginning that this baby is strong, and it seems to be turning out that way. 

*GRATITUDE*

(Since we will be having a second home birth, all of our prenatal appointments- of which there are many- are with our midwife, in our home. We've only had to venture into the medical world of the hospital twice: once for a triple screen test and early scan, and once for the twenty week anatomy scan. Since all of the tests came back great, we are through with the hospital! Hooray!)

    1. It's called Bare Burger, and it was really good. Not as good as Zaitzeff in Manhattan though, in my opinion (that's where we ordered burgers from after my labor with Biet! We ordered delivery and ate on the bed with our brand new home-birthed baby)
