  • Dear Ezra: Month Seven | Making of a Family
    a small repertoire of games that we know you like and we re always trying out new ones to see what sticks You haven t quite figured out hide and seek yet but you re slowly catching onto the idea of anticipation and surprise It s not the tickling itself that affects you much but the sight of those tickle monsters slowly approaching you from above always makes you go slack jawed with delight Your eyes squint and from the bottom of your belly comes a hearty sustained laugh Your giggles when they come are like a mainline of endorphins OD ing on them is a serious possibility This month also saw your first swimming lessons You continue to earn the E Z of your name by being such an easygoing kid in the water The sessions are only a half hour long but even that is too much for some of those other babies Not for you You re as content as a clam looking around playing with the toys whatever You are unflappable You cannot be flapped You re starting to eat a lot more solid foods Mama is treating you right with all sorts of homemade concoctions from squash to peas from chicken to beef She swears you have favorites but I m not sure She also thinks you prefer Afropop dance music to other kinds whereas I think you re just happy to hear any kind of beat but who can say for sure Whatever it is you eat it up with gusto if not precision Filing under Things I never got until I had a kid how it is that more food ends up on the outside than in I m not sure what percentage of all these goods are getting digested but I d

  • More from the Weisz family songbook | Making of a Family
    singing the classic Korean baby song Zousan from the album Elephant elephant you have a very long nose Yes my mama has a long nose too Elephant elephant tell me who do you love Oh you know it s my mama that I love As I sang I looked up at our wall and realized that I have some new verses right at my fingertips Samples from the extended mural remix Juggler juggler you have very fast hands Poodle poodle you have a very curly coat T Rex T Rex you have very short arms Vampire vampire you have very sharp teeth I find myself singing to Ezra more and more these days not just at night Here s our new poop song There s a smell in your pants that s suspicious An odor that s not too delicious I don t know just what Came out of your butt But I m certain it isn t nutritious That last line is still a work in progress I ve experimented with using ambitious or knishes but can t get it quite right Joe suggested seditious The poop is political I m also doing a remake of the Addams Family

  • Adventures of Aquababy | Making of a Family
    of his general vicinity It s not like he hates it he just thinks it s his job This is most apparent during bathtime The entire time he s in the mini tub he s flailing his arms about splashing water out of the tub in the only way he knows how He seems perfectly content but also perfectly determined to put it back where it belongs in the drain I expected similar behavior at the pool but I didn t get it Instead he reacted about as nonchalantly as one could when thrust into an expanse of water with fifteen other babies some of whom are crying none of whom he knew he spent the whole time relaxed looking around taking in the scenery What water he seemed to be thinking Been there Dad No big thing Meanwhile I m doing what every other parent is doing trying to channel the excitement we expect want to see out of our kid We re the ones singing the songs the ones smiling and giggling the ones making splashes by moving our babies legs up and down for them while they all wonder what the eff is going on Which is

  • Pizza for a crowd | Making of a Family
    whenever you use the first half of the dough from a bag take out the next bag and punch it down so those balls will have time to rest The resting makes it easier to roll out the dough Timing It takes about as long to construct a pizza as it does to bake a pizza so just embrace that One year we tried to have several pizzas ready at once and finding enough space for them was a hassle plus some were always cold Just serve one at a time This is not a sit down dinner for thirty option It s a leisurely open house thing Bases There are three main bases for our pizzas and they re easy to make in quantity beforehand Each of these will make more than enough for 3 4 pizzas Tomato sauce use Claire s recipe Add a little sugar for sweetness and make sure it s pretty thick Creme fraiche Heat 1 c cream to body temperature stir in 2 T buttermilk and let sit at room temperature for 24 hours then refrigerate Garlic oil Heat about 1 2 c olive oil with 6 or more pressed or chopped cloves of garlic and 1 t or more of red pepper flakes Bring it to a simmer then turn it off and let it sit and infuse for a few hours before refrigerating Tools I couldn t do it without parchment paper a pizza peel and a pizza stone I roll each pizza on a piece of parchment slide the peel under it and deposit it on the stone The stone makes it cook more evenly and gets the crust crispier When it s done I use the peel to retrieve it and transfer it parchment and all to a cutting board The parchment guarantees that the pizza will come easily off the counter after you roll it This is very important Ask me how I know Organization Holy pizzas this was the smartest thing I ve ever come up with Spend the days before the party leisurely cooking chopping shredding everything you plan to put on your pizzas the only toppings that can t be completely cooked chopped shredded beforehand are brown prone fruits like apples and pears The night before the party put all the ingredients for each pizza in small ziploc bags inside a large ziploc bag along with a note reminding you which base to use I m a terrible waster of plastic bags and I m sure you could do this in a more environmental way but it was incredibly helpful for me not to have to look for anything for any of the pizzas while also not having dishes piling up all around me This setup was also brilliant because it made it so if Ezra melted down and I had to go for a while someone else could easily make the next pizza since everything was organized in a single location Toppings There are a

    the frigid cold even as his nose and cheeks are turning bright red We try to keep him bundled up and restrict his playing to the carpets but he inevitably finds his way to the chilly exposed floorboards and seems not bothered by it at all I guess he didn t put on all those layers of fat for nothing The other day it was snowing that lovely big flaked
