We take off our shoes at the door. For several reasons--comfort, ease, organization and cleanliness. I think it often tends to be region- and culture- specific. It's the norm around here to remove your shoes at the door. It's not so much the norm in the Midwest where my family lives though.
I have ordered many items from Etsy. I have had one item get mis-delivered (but found) and two lost out of all of those transaction, but the seller has always resolved it with me. I would contact the seller and let them address the issue. I have had nothing but positive experiences buying there and with customer service.

Tar Beach is a beautiful and interesting book, and it's always a hit. Quote: In one of the most visually exciting books to appear in a long time, artist Faith Ringgold has created a picture book based on her story quilt, "Tar Beach."...

I used to live in a one bedroom apartment with my child, and it worked out well. It was all about organization and making a space for everything. And we spent a lot of time doing things outside of our living space. We eventually outgrew the spaces after a few years, but, in all fairness, they were small, one bedroom apartments. I think it's totally doable.
We do layers too. That way he's never overly cold and can remove layers if he gets too warm. My child wears a hooded sweatshirt or a light spring jacket--and sometimes both if it's going to be an overall cooler day.
I was just looking for this info. And you have it right here. Awesome. Thanks for posting it here.
Slings in the City has a meeting tomorrow. I think it's at 3 near the Alice in Wonderland statue with a rain location of Metro Minis. It tends to be baby talk of all kinds and is a good way to meet other parents. slingsinthecity.com is the site and KT has posted a thread about it: http://www.mothering.com/discussions....php?t=1215058
Check out Dr. Ajl. He's at 121 Dekalb Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, and the number is (718) 250-8784‎.
The Continuum Center for Health and Healing might meet your needs, but it's not in LIC. It's on 28th St. and 5th Ave. My son sees Dr. Hops, and I see Dr. Chaudhary. I think highly of them both. I know they have 2 acupuncturist on staff as well--Arya Nielsen and Basia Kielczynska. I have also heard about Integrative Health as well, and they have a Manhattan location (57th St) and acupuncturist on staff as well. If I remember others, I'll post them too.
