The Lettuces: Hey Brother

The Lettuces: Hey Brother

NOTE: This post was originally published on Instagram. I am reposting and backdating it here as part of a historical series in order to preserve these meaningful memories and early motherhood thoughts and experiences in a way that is not tied to any social media platform. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for some time. As we formally shelter in place in NYC, this project brings me happiness and a welcome break from the news. 🖤

Hey brother, there’s an endless road to rediscover…


There are only a handful of people I’d travel across the world for — with a seven month old baby! And most of them are pictured here.

This week we traveled to Mykonos to celebrate my brothers birthday. It was amazing. Challenging at times to make it work with an infant. But we did it!!!

As my brother says, it’s your world Javi. 🌍

So we want to make sure he sees it as often as he can.

Thank you @jcosenzainsta for motivating us to #travelwithkids and for being such an incredible brother and uncle.

PS, a lot of people asked us for baby travel tips. Of all the great tips we got prior to packing and takeoff, plus all of our original improvised solutions, just rolling with the punches is how we actually survived.
