Some decent weather for a change

We had our first almost-hot day this weekend.

Zeke played with the girls next door.

Zeke has discovered a fascination for ants, but he's also suddenly gotten phobic about bees. For about a day and a half he would start crying at the prospect of going out the front door because he remembered he'd seen a bee on the porch earlier. Today, though, it rained again, and Zeke was down on his hands and knees in the wet, watching a few ants and worms crawl around. It was great to watch.

He seems to be mostly over the panicky part of his fear of bees, though they still scare him. Which is understandable, I guess.

H. has taken some nice photos of Talia lately. She has a lot of new clothes.


And I like this cameraphone shot of Talia eating. Even though it's a little strange.

And this one too.
Talia and H.

And finally:

That's it for now.

On stage

0424071742-3, uploaded 24th April, 2007.

The park near my house has a bandshell. Zeke climbed on stage, and I told him to raise his hands and say "hooray," and ... voilá.

"Everybody wants to see Zeeky"

Overheard an odd monologue coming from the back seat today while driving Zeke to daycare. Roughly:

"Everybody wants to see Zeeky. But Zeeky's daddy says no. Daddy doesn't want Zeeky to go to school. Zeeky will stay home with Mommy."

Zeke and a very small, very friendly ram. At least, I think that's what it was. More photos to come.

Zeke, Billy, and a bunch of red balloons in a crib

This was Heather's brilliant idea. Try to ignore the grown-ups in the shot. The other kid, who you can hear but not see (he's lying on his back), is Zeke's friend Billy.

Video diary, episode one: Zeke's shoes

In which I put red socks and brown shoes on Zeke in preparation for "school" (daycare). Zeke figures out what he's seeing about halfway through.

Happy Easter 2007

Happy Easter 2007
Zeke was OK putting the rabbit ears on his head, but then he wouldn't hold still for a picture, and they kept falling off. By the time this photo actually got taken, he was pretty fed up ...

That's not what that's for



She's chewing a rattle.
