  • Camping, part deux | Making of a Family
    would take some skilled persuasion on his part to get Emily to agree I did all I could to assure him that there really was nothing to it even with baby Somehow he worked his diplomatic magic and accompanied by a detailed list of stipulations and contingencies got Emily to say yes So were we right in our assurances Or have we simply been blessed with an especially patient child rendering our experiences an exceptional if fortuitous edge case Kinda both Little Eleanor was a fun little camper through all the waking activities successfully abating her mother s fears She giggled and snuggled with her boy toy Ezra while the adults swam set up campfires cooked and grilled s mores We succumbed to no mosquito swarms no attacks by wild vermin no cooking mishap induced fasts Where Eleanor did not excel was at the sleeping part Emily and Dan spent much of the night trying to encourage their crying pooping out of sorts baby to go back to bed By sunrise they d each gotten just a few hours sleep The bylaws stated it clearly it was time to go home We enjoyed a lovely breakfast together in town while

  • Dear Ezra: Month Two | Making of a Family
    your hunger satisfied For weeks you were exactly as likely to turn 180 degrees away from my breast as towards it But even now that you re facing the right way in desperation to eat you still just open your mouth wide and suck on whatever is right in front of you Your fist your forearm my hand You ve tried to nurse through my shirt And nothing I do can dissuade you of the idea that if I d let you put both your hand and my nipple in your mouth it would be the best thing ever This month we ve found the magic of using your sucking reflex to calm you You can suck on your dad s pinky for hours and he s quite a trooper about it twisting into contortions in the car to get you a soothing finger For a while my mom was the only person who could get you to take a pacifier but suddenly you love it and a few nights ago you kept it in your mouth by yourself for over an hour We ve gotten to go to three movies this month thanks to the incredibly devoted babysitting team of Nana Adrienne and Papa Syd They will go to any lengths to make you happy up to and including hauling out a didgeridoo to lull you to sleep Last time we came to pick you up my mother said his eyes are just like my father s I never saw her father s eyes Both of my grandfathers died before I was born You are so lucky to have all four of your grandparents showering you with love and attention not to mention five uncles and an aunt who is dying to meet you You ve had adventures this

  • Lucky | Making of a Family
    to babysit for another two hours That s too much I don t want to overburden them But when Sandy slipped the idea into conversation my parents were unfazed In fact they seemed downright excited at the prospect of more time with the boy So off we went After the movie I got stuck in a traffic jam getting out of the parking lot and we had an errand we d forgotten to run before the movie so we were running a little late getting back to pick him up I called to apologize fearing that I d reach exhausted grandparents trying desperately to calm a screaming infant Because apparently I know nothing about either my parents or my child We re not sure we re going to give him back my mother told me when I called We re having so much fun I was back at my parents house again today having lunch with my mom and I asked her if she d mind taking care of him for a little while so I could have a chance to write She took him downstairs and within minutes I could hear her laughing Maybe he was smiling at her

  • How to camp with an infant | Making of a Family
    s not the middle of the night it s best to do your diaper changing on the ground well on a mat on the ground in case any eccentricities rear their head Bring lots of onesies At least two outfits per day including the start and end days Better safe than sorry We brought that many and used them all Make sure to bring some long sleeved onesies for the cool evenings and mornings And LOTS of wipes We brought a refill pack of 75 wipes thinking we were being overly cautious We were not Bring citronella candles Devil s Lake was absent much bug action so we didn t need bug spray I guess if we had to use it we d have sprayed our back and legs where the baby s mouth isn t likely to go and light citronella candles if the bug biting got heavy Schedule your hikes after feedings Our jaunt through Parfrey s Glen was easy because Ezra was asleep the whole time Sarah fed him at the entrance right before we went in and he was sated If you re breastfeeding bring a pump We didn t do this but in retrospect we should have Ezra got especially cranky on the ride home and we didn t have a bottle we could use to soothe him I ended up having to reach behind me and give him my pinky for long stretches of time Had Sarah pumped before we left one of us could have fed him while the other drove Go somewhere you re familiar with We have camped at Devil s Lake at least once a summer so we re pretty familiar with the beaches the parks the trails and the stores in town While I m sure we could have

  • Baby goes camping | Making of a Family
    we found ourselves filling up the Fit emphasis on the filling and heading up to Wisconsin The trip started out inauspiciously with a heavy storm front moving through Baraboo just as we arrived After hiding out at the local bookstore for a couple hours we took advantage of a break in the storm to check in and set up our tent Scene Mom and Dad scurrying around campsite furiously attempting to set up tent as downpour slowly builds and baby wails away in car seat Intermission Next scene sky clears fire is set dinner is prepared eaten and is declared to be delicious Monday was spent mostly lakeside swimming reading Scrabbling and making Ezra smile which is getting easier and offering more hilarious results He does this Stevie Wonder thing now where he opens his mouth in a huge grin and weaves his head back and forth as if to show everyone around how awesome life is It s hard to get any reading done when this is also an option As is my mission I also took him into the lake a little bit The water s still a little cold for him to be even partly submerged so we re settling for a light sprinkling on the back and head He seems to enjoy it or at least tolerate it We mixed it up in the middle with a short hike at Parfrey s Glen a stunningly beautiful gorge surrounded by walls of limestone Ezra traveled in the Baby Bjorn the whole time mostly snoozing The hike is only about 1 5 miles to begin with but ended up being less than that as the path into the deepest parts of the gorge were washed away in last year s heavy rains Still pretty and still good exercise

  • A post about poop | Making of a Family
    handle a messy one Ha Ezra got nice and comfy in his fuzzy new diaper and let it rip The next week I took him with me to see my therapist The previous week this had worked fine He d slept through the whole thing This time he fussed nursed and then pooped enthusiastically I changed him right there on the floor of her office while attempting to continue talking about my feelings Last night he decided to really make a stand He d made a few small messes in the previous 24 hours so I foolishly allowed myself to head off to a friend s house with only one spare diaper figuring he was done pooping for the next few days As soon as I got there and started nursing him I heard a disturbing noise emanating from his bottom I kept nursing assuming it would be something small like his earlier diapers It wasn t until I lifted him to my shoulder to burp him that I noticed the entire back of his onesie slowly turning bright orangey yellow the telltale color of baby poop I laid him on my friend s changing table to clean up The poop was all over him up his back dotting his legs on one hand It was spreading like wildfire When I thought I d cleaned it all up I tried to put my one spare diaper on him It immediately turned yellow like everything else I don t even know where that poop came from Finally I managed to get most of the mess contained My friend whose daughter is six months old gave me a diaper meant for a 25 pound baby and I snugged it up as best I could and stuffed it and him into the extra
