*Something* was due today…

According to one of three calculations (?!), today was a due date for Bebe. We've been betting on whether the final closing of the apartment would come through before the baby. Initially, it seemed like apartment was a no-brainer; we already live there and have a solid relationship with our landlady for three years. But,... Continue Reading →

On the sixth day…

And on the sixth day, man... And on the seventh, they rested (sort of). Our baby girl was born in our home this past Friday, just in time for Shabbat. The labor took less than a third the time it took with Koala, and she beats her brother by 150 grams at 2.85 kilos - and... Continue Reading →

We’ve come a long way, baby.

Hey, littler one. My midwife says you're ready to roll. Or squeeze yourself out of my body, whatever. She also says I'm ready. So I guess that means this is it, huh? Needless to say, I'm really looking forward to meeting you. So is your big brother, though I apologize in advance if things are... Continue Reading →

Koala update: Twenty three months.

Well, this is it, Koala. The last update before you become a big brother, assuming all goes as planned. I can't believe it's been two years. I can't believe it's only been two years. And now your whole life is going to be turned upside-down. And you'll be even more awesome for it, I promise.... Continue Reading →

Koala update: Twenty one months.

I'm having a hard time believing we're three months to two-years-old. I'm having a harder time believing we're three months to two children. It's a really great time for Koala lately. The teeth are in, the whining has been at a minimum, we've learned more about identifying his moods, words, wants and needs to avoid... Continue Reading →

Guess he drinks more at gan.

My baby woke up last night in pain from teething. We gave him his motzetz, his blankie, Acamol, but what he finally ended up calling out for, through his sad, sad baby tears, was... "!מים! מים" Huz and I looked at each other as he mouthed to me in surprise, 'mayim?!' It's not Koala's first... Continue Reading →

How how it all begins.

It's hard to believe. I'm a little choked up. I didn't think it would come out this way. Koala started recognizing dogs a while ago. He points to them and calls, "Da!" He calls the plush wolf my brother got him "Da." He was even getting to the point of recognizing them in photos -... Continue Reading →

Koala update: Fourteen months.

Word of the month: cheeky. Looks like Koala has started conquering the Big Three... climbing, walking, speaking. The climbing must be something he's known to do for a while; I just never let him go up the stairs in the apartment until this week. But he managed stairs a couple weeks ago at a friend's...
