Carving our giant pumpkin

I was so excited to carve Scott's very first pumpkin!  "Firsts" are so much fun with babies.  They make everything more exciting.


Scott really loved being naked in the pumpkin.  I was loving it too, till he peed.  Ended up having to mop my floor that night and we had to throw out the pumpkin the next day because it was making our apartment smell like urine.  Oh well, at least we got some cute pics while it lasted!

Couples Retreat

I am notorious for posting pics a month or more after they were taken (if I even post at all).  This trip was way too fun not to post!  5 couples + 5 babies + 1 beach house = a weekend to never forget!

Here is our sweet 15 passenger van.  We had an additional small car, so we weren't totally crammed into this thing.  On our way to Montauk...on the very tip of Long Island.

Since we don't ride in the car very often, Scott is very intrigued when we do.  He also sleeps so well in the car!  Amazing!

Straws.  Favorite thing.

Bryan wanted to give Scott a lemon so of course I had the camera ready for a funny face, and I never got one!  He wanted more.


Love this cutest family!

The long jump contest turned into "let's jump over each other".  Boys will be boys.

His pointy chin.  I die.

Darn, he got his aunt's cheerleader moves...def not from me!

Stop and look at Scott in this "flying baby" picture.  Perfect Superman form!

 Ben and Ava flying their kite.

Wooaaaah FIRE.

It's dark, so it's blurry, but Scott crashed at our bonfire and slept on the beach for like 2 hours while we enjoyed the fire and some s'mores.  Rough life.

The whole gang on the roof.  Thanks for an AMAZING time.  Let's start planning next year's trip.

Best friends.

GO Baltimore Ravens!

Scott got to go to his first NFL game!  He loved all the loud cheering and even added some cheering of his own.  A big thank you to our dear friends, the Pittas, for letting us come spend some time with you and watch Uncle Dennis play some football!

Also, a big thanks to our friend, Joe Flacco, for letting us come party at his house after the game!

 So many people comment on how much Scott looks like Bryan...and Bryan loves it.  Therefore, he decided that he needed to get Scott a matching hat...then show it off at a friend's bday party.  
"P" for Perkinson.  Love these boys!

(Scott's "huffing and puffing" face that he loves to do while breathing really fast out of his nose)

City folk on a farm

While it is so fun living IN the crazy city, sometimes it is so refreshing to rent a car and enjoy some beautiful countryside.  (Not to mention, it is fun to just simply DRIVE!)  We drove up to a farm to do some good ol' apple picking.  It was so fun to see the changing leaves, pick some yummy apples, and spend some good quality time with the 3 of us.  Scott thought the whole thing was so fun and he LOVES eating apples!  We are loving this fall weather.

The farm also had a pumpkin patch, so we snatched the biggest one we could find (Scott's request).

So long sweet summer...

Everything in my life lately has screamed FALL at me and I'm so excited for the change of season because I love everything about the Fall AND it means that we are closer to the holiday season!  To make it official I figured I should do a "farewell to summer" post.  This summer was a total dream for me...maybe the best summer I've ever had, and I'm sad to see it end.  Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I wasn't working, maybe it was the new little man in my life, maybe it was the city I live in and love so much, maybe it was the wonderful people I got to spend my time with.  Ok it was probably ALL of those things.  All I can say is that Scott's very first summer will be one for me to always remember, and I sure took enough pics for him to enjoy when he gets older.  Thank you for being so good to us, summer!!  (Disclaimer:  a lot of these pics are Instagram reposts, so if you follow me on Insta sorry for the repeats!)

We are about an hour train ride from the beach, so we went there often.  Even in the middle of the week we'd throw together a group of ladies and babes and make the trek out there.  Nothing better than lounging on the beach with good friends and cute babes!

Scott got his first haircut when he was 4 months old... the mullet was killing me!

Scott and I watching the sunset behind Miss Liberty (the tiny statue in the background).

Soooo in love with my handsome boy!

Swim lessons for Scott.  This kid loves everything about water.

Born Mets fan and we made it to several games.

Already a lover of books...getting a head start preparing for Harvard.

Fun date night in the city zipping around on this beauty!  Bryan's goggles kill me every time!

Broadway shows never get old to me...neither does my sexy husband.

Scott's shirt says it all... Peace, Love, Rock &Roll.  Babiators.
 Ready to catch some waves.  Stud.

What's a girl's night without some tattoos in Times Square?

 One of the many splash pads...

This is one of my favorite pics.  Scott with St. John the Divine in the background.  Just down the street from us.

This is a classic "first time trying baby food" photo shoot at 6 months.  Scott absolutely loves food and has since day 1.  You should see his excitement when I pull down one of his bowls.

Suspenders and cute diaper bum.

Surfing in the subway. 

Everyone tells me how much Scott looks like Bryan.  When he does his serious face I get a glimpse of some Hall genes.  Do you see it??

A new favorite: swings.  Especially with dad.  Scott sure loves his dad and it is the cutest thing to watch these two become buddies.

On Scott's half birthday.  STOP GROWING!

Mom got to do some surfing this summer as well!  This surfing trip we saw a huge whale so close to us!  We started paddling out but he was a little faster than we were.  It totally made my day.

There you go.  A handful of the thousands of pics I took this summer.  A few more posts to come soon.
