First Father's Day

Highlights of my first Father's Day:

  1. Waking up to Brenna decked out in one of her cutest fluffiest dresses, a jar of Jelly Bellies, and a really sweet card from Diana.
  2. My mom treating Diana, Brenna, and me to lunch.
  3. Getting wished a happy Father's Day from random strangers in the restaurant and around town.
  4. Long walk with Brenna and my mom around Central Park.
  5. Diana getting the yummiest dinner ever.
  6. Brenna's first giggle :D

First Date!

Back when Brenna turned one month old, Diana and I slipped out of the apartment to go on our first date since she was born!  Ok, it was actually a well-orchestrated and planned event with Diana's mom helping take care of Brenna.  But whatever, we felt like kids sneaking out of the house.

We went to Sixteen Handles for frozen yogurt!  And yes we held hands.

Happy One Month, Brenna!

It's been a crazy crazy month, but we made it and our little munchkin, Brenna, has grown into a very real (sized) baby!

We couldn't have done it without the help of dozens upon dozens of folks who were so incredibly generous with their time and energy, whether it was helping us care for Brenna, teaching us, finding us a nanny, sending us gifts, moving our stuff, or even just lending an ear.  And in return, all anyone has ever asked of us is to pay it forward.

We owe special thanks to Diana's mom who spent the month with us helping with Brenna, feeding us, and even providing Diana and me an opportunity or two to sneak away on a mini-date!

So here we are, at the one month mark and we have a wonderful little treasure in Brenna.

Here are some pictures we've collected along the way in the main gallery.  Ever since daddy (wow, that's me!) got a new camera (why should Brenna get all the toys) he's been snapping away non-stop so there will be plenty more to come.

Some highlights from the new photos in the gallery.  Enjoy!



Food coma is serious, serious thing

Welcome to the world, Brenna!

A couple weeks ago we welcomed, Brenna Yi-Pey Kuo (郭怡霈), to the world.  She was born at 12:04pm and was a little peanut at 6lbs 2oz and 18” long.  We love her to itty-bitty pieces -- even at 4am.
You can find all the photos in the main photo gallery.
Here are a few select pictures from the past two weeks.

Our first family photo just after delivery!

Shortly afterward, they sent me back to the room with Brenna while they finished up with Diana.  I was just in this waiting room chair not half an hour ago, but it seemed an entire lifetime ago.

Then they brought Mommy to her recovery room and she got to hold her Little One.

And now, little Brenna sleeps everywhere (except when she's not).

Apparently, the world is a big place!

And every once in a while, she gives us a smile that lights up our whole world.

First Rain

This is probably my favorite video that I've watched this year.  So <3.  I can't wait to show our little one the world.

Winter Wonderland

Diana took these gorgeous photos walking home from work today.  NYC can be a beautiful place after all.

Nesting Time Part 2 (Baby Hats and Dress!)

And just when I thought Diana had knitted herself out, I just got a text message with all of these pictures attached followed by a big smiley ":D".

Nesting Time (Baby Sweaters and Hats!)

Diana has channeled all her nesting energy into knitting and making sure our future little one will be bundled up into the cutest, fuzziest ball possible.  Here is her latest batch of goodies!
