Passage of time

Waiting for our little ones to arrive.

Three months later, Leo and Popi meet for the first time.

Leo and Popi's first baby-off. How cute are they!

Wow, look at all those chins!

Leo's cheeks are getting bigger and lower while his chins are multiplying. A few more pounds and his mouth with completely disappear.

Bless my little finger

Sometimes, this is the only thing that will calm our little one and thank goodness for it. At eight weeks, Leo is a whopping 13 lbs. and 22.5 inches. That's a lot of baby!


Awwww dad!

Mirror, mirror

At eight weeks, Leo is able to lift his head up and look at himself in the mirror.

Growing and growing

Grandma Mirman had bought Leo this outfit when I first told her I was pregnant-it was his very first. We wanted to get a picture of him in it because amazingly, he is already almost too big for it.

No smiles yet but cute none the less.


Grandma Mirman and Pop-pop gave Leo a baby gym for Thanksgiving and he loves it.

Leo's cousin Jay cheers him on as he is having tummy time.

Leo and mom both looking very funny.

Leo was introduced to the extended Worth side of family and found the experience...well you can see the expression on his face.


A very modest boy. Actually, Paul wouldn't let me post any nude shots.

Thanks Grandma Rose!

This is a great soothing position told to us by Grandma Rose.

Blue Steel

We call this face, "blue steel" (from Zoolander). He makes this in between bowel pushes. Can you tell that we think and talk about poop a lot?

Trying to capture the real Leo

This outfit was a gift from our friends Dave and Sharon out in SF. His Shirt says, "A surprise will appear in my pants."

Dream or Nightmare?

This is a Perego 1960's pram. It was my mother's wish to own with when she had children. She finally got one of her very own and saved it over the years for her grandchildren. When she was finally blessed with such, she took it out of the attic, only find that some little critter had made a nice little nest in it. But, this Summer when her neighbors across the street were moving, she went over to say goodbye and they gave her their Perego pram to her delight. It was too big for our Hoboken condo so Leo now uses it when visiting Somers. Paul thinks it looks like the pram in Rosemary's Baby. Day-z, of course, is Leo's guardian angel.


Aunt Chris knitted this hat and it was worn on Halloween.

Sleep much?

Pretty much just eating, pooping and sleeping at this point. Oh yeah, and looking adorable!


We quickly learned that this is his pooping face.

Just perfect!

Bum Genius

After hearing Celina talk about modern cloth diapers, we decide that Leo needs to be environmentally conscious from the very start. Leo is still a little small for his Bum Genius.

Going Home

Waiting for daddy to get the car to take us home. Leo is wearing a sweater knitted by Grandma Mirman and it has been worn home from the hospital by her sons David and Robert and then her five grandchildren: Cole, Alexandra, Jay, Zachary and now Leo.

Can I hold him?

Everyone gets a chance to hold him even Grandma and Pop-pop who flew back from California just in time for Leo's birthday. Paul apparently said to my mother (which he doesn't remember), "You wouldn't believe all the stuff that just came out of your daughter!"
