Zeeky chases seagulls and digs in the sand

Zeeky on the beach (take 2) on Vimeo

A few clips stitched together courtesy of Eyespot and Vimeo. (The whole thing is a little under two minutes long.) We spent a week in the vicinity of Point Reyes, CA (click to see the exact location; the place was called Olema Cottages, a funky little mini-farmstead featuring chickens, ducks, a rabbit, and a dog named Yogi). Zeeky had a blast. In this little video, you can see him discovering two things: seagulls (that's what he's waving his arms and pointing at; if you listen close, you can hear him saying, "Seagulls, seagulls!") and sand. You can also, of course, admire the stunning Pt. Reyes scenery in the background. I think this is from Drakes Beach, or maybe Limantour Beach, if you know the area.

Some favorite photos


Who knew broccoli could be funny

If you look close, you can see a tiny broccoli bud on his left jowl. He has gotten in this habit of chomping on broccoli (apparently he likes the taste; he asks for it by name, as "brocky") and then spitting out most of it. I guess it's too fibrous to chew very well.

He is a dancin' fool

Zeke likes to dance. This is a Jay-Z collaboration with Panjabi MC. I made this video with a low-end digital still camera when Zeke was about 15 months old.

Hello and welcome to Life with Zeeky

Welcome to my new blog. This is going to be a diary of sorts — at least, that's my current plan — with a lot of audio posts (via Audioblogger) and photos. As the title indicates I am interested in keeping some kind of ongoing record of Zeke and his development. I have been intending to keep a diary about him for some time; maybe this will make it easier, especially the fact that I can easily integrate pictures and videos of him and just as easily phone in an audio post in five minutes from my cell phone. I have no idea whether anyone will ever read this, but I probably will.

Here's my very first audio post — I phoned it in this morning after dropping Zeke off at daycare. He'd done a few cute and interesting things that I wanted to remember.
