When your first three Face Book status updates in a row are new baby announcements, you know you’re in the zone. It’s that block of time where everyone around you is simultaneously expanding and decompressing. Which means, so many gifts, so little time. The Times blog gave me this fun wrapping idea (use art scraps, kid’s scribbles, basically left-over-anything), instead of trad paper. I especially like stuffing some little things into a mason or weck jar. And to all of this I say…Welcome Aria, Phoenix and Violet! Great name picks, y’all.
