This kid has the best morning hair ever. And that expression? Priceless.
This week was great in that 1) It’s March Madness! 2) Ezra has figured out how to turn on music on the stereo, which is great fun! and 3) We visited many more animals, as that seems to be The Kid’s favorite thing right now. Oh! And we had chocolate ice cream. I mean, who doesn’t love that?!?
I might have written about this before, but Ezra loves helping us “cook.” He watches us chop all the ingredients (tasting them along the way) and he loves to stir whatever pot we’re cooking in. In this photo, Jamie taught Ezra how to make hashbrowns and omelettes for breakfast. We made one 3-egg omelette to share (as usual), but Ezra ate about 3/4 of it! He’s a fan of those, for sure.
On Saturday, Jamie had the (brave) idea of taking Ezra and I to the humane society. I mean, seriously, do we need more things to take care of? Absolutely not. But we thought Ezra would like seeing bunnies and cats and other dogs.
There were hardly any animals there! Rest easy, Minnesota, you take good care of the strays. This kitty here was one of the few left at the shelter, and Ezra liked watching her because she’s only 6 mos. old and played a lot in her cage.
After the Humane Society, we stopped off at Sebastian Joe’s for a scoop of ice cream (peanut butter, chocolate, chocolate chip). Ezra was a BIG fan.
We had to show him over and over again that the cup was empty and there was no more left.
Another thing our little guy likes to do is help with groceries. He likes to organize the cart while we’re shopping, and he likes to help us unload them as well.
We also went to the library one afternoon. Ezra loves the toys and books there, but this time he discovered that the computers are right at his level. Dangerous. Not that he’s going to log hours and hours and hours on the internet, but dangerous that with a few clicks this kid can turn the language on your device into all portuguese, and you have no idea how to fix it.
When we got home, Ezra read by himself for a bit. I love it when he entertains himself like that, and books are his favorite.
And then on Sunday, we took Ezra back to the zoo! This time we went to the tropical section (which we didn’t visit last week). Ezra loved seeing the giant tortoises, the gibbons, the flamingoes and the tropical fish.
Jamie snapped this photo of Ezra and I while we were there. See those curls? That’s how my hair changed after I stopped nursing Ezra. That right there is how my hair dries now. It is so weird to have curly hair just show up out of the blue when you’re twenty six years old.*
