Hunker Down

in All Posts

We’re currently getting the tail end of Hurricane Sandy – the morning started off like a typical autumn day, but the day quickly turned chilly and windy.  But our weather is nothing like the northerners will experience soon. If you’re in the area, please be safe and stay dry!

We spent the morning comfy and cozy in the new clinic, organizing some items and putting together the new waiting room chairs.  Nice, huh?  Looking snazzy!  Now we just need our new sign for the wall.

Henry is so good while we work from the clinic.  I bring a ton of toys, and he has a place to sleep, so he’s happy.  And look!  He sits up like a big boy now.  He started doing this on Saturday night during our Halloween party and hasn’t looked back.  He looks so. freaking. adorable when he sits up. I can’t stop gushing, “YOU CAN SIT LIKE A BIG BOY!!!!”

I die.


Workin’ lunch included a platter with loads of hummus and chips.  All mine!

And a salad.

Off to turn up the heat and pour myself a cup of tea!  I really should go for a run, but I’m going to hunker down instead.  Brrr.

    It’s really good that you’re able to do the clinic set-up before Henry gets more mobile. I think it would have been a LOT harder to do it even in two or three months.

    And he was such a cute little cow at your party!

    In hunkered down in NYC! We just caught up on Homeland, so we’re looking for the next show to get hooked on. 🙂 I’ve been proud of how I’ve spent most of my “lazy day” though—I’ve kept mindless munching to a minimum and crossed a few things off my work list. I have saved my plank + glute workout for later—especially because I’ll need something constructive to do if the power goes out!

    We’re hunkering down here in Vermont, and it’s been awfully windy outside! I just want to sit, eat snacks, and read blogs. 🙂

  • Kendra @ My Full-Thyme Life October 29, 2012, 5:48 pm

    Yay, Henry! Way to go! 🙂

  • Cara @ I Don't Believe in Diets October 29, 2012, 5:50 pm

    awww the office is so elegant. and Henry, oh my goodness, he is getting so big!

    The clinic is looking great!

    I can’t believe how fast Henry is growing up 🙂

    The clinic’s seating area is gorgeous! Love the chairs.

  • Kelley October 29, 2012, 7:41 pm

    Wow, he is a big boy! My little Adele isn’t doing that yet and she’s a bit older than Henry! I’m in no rush though. But it’s exciting to look forward to!

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats October 29, 2012, 8:25 pm

    He is too cute sitting up! He’s going to grow so quickly! And I love those chairs in the clinic!

    Where did you get your cute tan wedges?

    • Caitlin October 29, 2012, 9:12 pm

      Banana but a while ago!

  • Deva @ Deva by Definition October 29, 2012, 9:47 pm

    He is so adorable!

  • Alli October 29, 2012, 10:00 pm

    Looks great! Sometimes it’s hard to get out that door, but even walk/sprint intervals for 10 minutes is a great heart pumping workout 😉

  • Jen October 29, 2012, 10:27 pm

    Wow – the clinic really looks FANTASTIC! And, I can’t believe that Henry is sitting up already…seems like you just had him! Such a cutie!!!!!

    Thankfully, we haven’t seen any effects of Sandy…this is one of the few times that I am actually glad to live in a landlocked state. Thoughts & prayers with all who live in the hurricane’s path!

    I’m in Toronto and the lights in our condo are currently flickering. So far nothing’s out except the clock on the microwave–which seemed to mysteriously reset itself. The grocery store tonight looked like madness. I didn’t realize that the radio was telling everyone to stock up for three days’ worth of necessities when I didn’t think we were supposed to get hit by Sandy very hard. I’m all caught up on your blog and am going to turn off all electronic devices in fear of shutting this place down! Everyone stay safe!

    I know you said you were bored with food and I’ve been trying to think of recipes to send your way. We had this one for dinner tonight and it was very good.

    • Caitlin October 30, 2012, 8:37 am

      oh thanks!!! this looks good!

  • Emma October 30, 2012, 3:16 am

    Yay for babies that sit up! Way to go Henry!

  • Hotpotatokate October 30, 2012, 4:33 am

    He got himself into a sitting position?! Wow! Such a strong little guy 🙂

  • Presley @ Run Pretty October 30, 2012, 6:46 am

    GO HENRY! Maddux is trying his best to sit up, but he just wobbles back and forth until he goes face first into the floor veeeeery slowly. Babies rock.

  • Molly @ RDexposed October 30, 2012, 8:03 am

    I’ve learned that it’s good to have patient chairs be easy-to-clean!

  • Ashley @ The North Carolina Cowgirl October 30, 2012, 8:27 am

    Aww Henry is growing up so fast! I miss those days/years when they are that little and you get to see them experience stuff for the first time.

    The office looks great too! I’m in central NC and luckily the only thing we’ve dealt with is harsh winds and tree branches falling. I’ll be glad when the wind moves out and it’s not as cold!

  • Carrie @ The Cook's Palette October 30, 2012, 2:06 pm

    Gah! He does looks adorable sitting up! So fun seeing his milestones. The clinic looks great too! Call me crazy, but I sort of like chilling out at the doctor’s office reading magazines.

  • Brianne @ pootimestwo October 31, 2012, 9:00 am

    Experiencing the twins sitting up was one of my FAVORITE milestones! It really makes them such “big boys” in your eyes…go Henry!
