little girl in the big city

On July 5th, Zoey took her first trip to the big apple. It was a big success. Zoey had a great time...she was really engaged with her surroundings and very content. Does this mean we have a little city girl on our hands?

This is our tale of urban adventure in pictures...

Zoey took her first train ride into the city. All eyes were on her, which made feeding her that much more weird. Luckily, Kirsten is a Mom first and foremost, and she always finds a way.

At first Zoey was very sleepy. Here she is sleeping at Grand Central.

and sleeping through her first trip to Jamba Juice

and sleeping at Bryant Park

This is Zoey at Rockefeller Center. She says, "I am way too tired to care about some crazy golden statue."

Finally in Central Park, Zoey yawned to life.

After that, she became very engaged for several hours. She toured the city in the Baby Bjorn, and although you can't tell from the picture, her eyes were wide open as she peered out at the taxis and people and buildings.

She was so fascinated, she allowed us to have an uninterrupted meal in a nice restaurant with Aunt Barbara! Thanks Zoey!

Shortly after this shot was taken, minor celebrity David McCallum from NCIS and Man from U.N.C.L.E. stopped by our table to extend congratulations. Unfortunately for Mr. McCallum, Aunt Barbara recognized him and he scurried away as I asked for a picture with Zoey. If we had taken the picture, it would have looked something like this:

To recap, Zoey rode the train, she took in the sights, she had a brush with celebrity--and she did it all in high spirits. We're proud to have a cosmopolitan kid.


  1. Oh, that bit about meeting up with David McCallum was too funny. I'd love to hear what your Aunt Barbara had to say about him.

    Zoey is adorable. :)

  2. great brush with fame, thanks for sharing! :)
