  • Swimming | Making of a Family
    hidden away While Sandy floated away on an innertube Ezra and I dug holes in the sand and were entertained by an eight year old girl doing magic tricks See all this sand in my hand Now I ll just put my hand under the water and it s gone On the second day a motorcyclist sent us to a beach in Alma a tiny town on the Mississippi Alma s beach was as small as Whitewater s but featured two lifeguards on summer break from college You re from Chicago I go to college in Milwaukee so that s like close and just one other family It also had a slide that Sandy took Ezra down a few times Not like a pool water slide Just a playground slide sitting in a few feet of water A few days later we took a day trip to Minneapolis where we stopped by the Walker Art Museum for a free concert and met a really nice woman with a Golden Doodle and advice about a great local beach Cedar Lake Point Beach was almost as tiny as the others but crowded with people cooling off on a sweltering Saturday One of

  • Dear Ezra: Month Twelve | Making of a Family
    pretty short three or four steps at a time but your increased confidence is noticeable You take off rolling your whole body from foot to foot not worrying about the fact that you ll tumble down in a few steps You ll get there one way or another Most of the time when you walk you do it with this amazing silly new grin on your face your giant cheeks pushing your eyes up into scrunched little half moons You look so pleased with your self and so excited about the world You ve been showing us that grin a lot recently We went to a petting zoo last weekend and you smiled wide at the baby goats and sheep giggling as they nuzzled you reaching out to them without any trepidation Each day you get more confident at mimicking sounds and I feel like an explosion of words can t be far away Last night and today you said dada and dad dee a bunch of times almost but not quite using it to actually refer to you dad and you ve repeated bye bye a few times too even starting to wave You are becoming an expert at saying yes and no and practice all day long You re still not sure how to use yes other than as a tool to make people giggle but you re a pro at using no to put a stop to unwanted blueberries or spoonfuls of yogurt You re also getting more clever about pointing at what you actually do want I am looking forward to all your new words and gestures especially since this month you ve taken to saying it with your teeth when you can t find the sound you re looking for As you sunk your teeth

  • Oh, no | Making of a Family
    Then a few days ago I noticed a funny thing he was doing He started to say no while shaking his head So I countered with an emphatic yes while nodding and he mimicked me though his version is more of a yeh We went back and forth all day practicing Yeses and Nos He started playing a hilarious kind of duck duck goose variant with us faking us out with Yeh yeh yeh yyyyyyyyy NO In hindsight I should perhaps have shut this down rather than abetting it because Ladies and Gentlemen Ezra has his first word and it is NO It took about three days of practice for him to get it but he now uses it with some skill combining it with head shakes hand gestures and wails No I don t want another blueberry No I don t want to be put in my crib Sadly he doesn t understand it quite as well when I use it as in No Stop biting mama While he doesn t really understand Yes quite as well he has picked up on the fact that sometimes the answer is Yes and sometime the answer is No For instance this
