We got back from Raleigh on Friday night, and on Saturday morning Mabel, still on East Coast time, was wide awake at 4:30 AM. So, what the heck, we got up and went for a dawn walk. We got hot chocolate and looked at the newly lit up big tree in Union Square, and then we wandered down Powell Street. By this time it was 7:00 in the morning on the day after Black Friday, and low and behold, the various retailers were throwing their doors open--though there were very few shoppers about--so we popped into a totally deserted, clean and organized H&M and did a little baby shopping for Mabel. It's the best spot to buy super cheap organic cotton long-sleeved onsies, but normally so crowded that you can't get in there with a stroller to save your life. And we also got this hat. Which may well be the cutest hat in the history of the world.
