Oh man, this kid is mobile and getting into EVERYTHING. This week we had to step up our parenting game a gazillion percent as now all eyes need to be on Ezra at all times. No looking away, not even for a second. The high chair is one of the few places where we can relax just a bit because he can’t really move out of it. And yeah, he’s feeding himself waffles now. When he’s not feeding them to Magda.
Besides the Extreme Parenting that’s happening, we also took the entire family to Augtober Fest in our neighborhood, which is a street festival with bands and food and such. It was a first for both Ezra and Magda, and it was fun for us all to go. Magda, however, was more bothered by the large crowd than I was suspecting she’d be, so we didn’t stay too long.
Besides that, it was mostly a “boys weekend” as I had a long day of wedding photography and work in general is at its busiest for me. We did, however, squeeze in a date night where we finally saw Mission Impossible. Oh, how I love the spy action adventure movies… And you guys! Let’s talk about Tom Cruise. That’s plastic surgery, no? Something about how the skin under his eyes has no bags and never moves… But back to the Madhouse.
There aren’t a lot of “sitting” images this week unless he’s in his high chair or his stroller. Welcome to toddler-dome / aka the most exhausting weekends of your life.
Oh, but at least he’s cute.
Here we are surrounded by toys he has strewn about and no longer wants now that he has decided emptying the bookshelf is more fun. And yeah, I’m too tired to fight it. Go on with your bad self. I’m gonna sit here and sip my coffee.
Here he is trying his hardest to break down the baby gate so he can get to Magda (who is hiding upstairs).
Oh this trunk? It used to have beautiful dishes on it. Now it’s clear for the kid.
Finally, here we are at the street festival. He only tried to leap from our arms headfirst onto the concrete about four times. Good thing we keep strong grips on the wiggler. No longer a baby, eh?
It was sorta windy at the festival — which was wonderful and fall-like.
Here is Mags, who was overwhelmed, but fairly well behaved.
And lastly, here’s Ezra feeding the dog his cheerios. Oh yeah, this is his new favorite game. And finally, Magda here is getting a little payoff.
