Koala update: Five years

Koala, We've been alluding to and celebrating your turning five for so long that, today, you were kinda over it. So we had a chill family day and I had a few minutes alone with you to really... see you. Hilarious, hilarious you. As much as the year before four was rough, something clicked soon...

Koala update: Four years

Koala, I love you so freaking much. Sometimes I look at your face while you're babbling about throwing lions at people or how all your friends' dads are policemen (somehow?). I look at your face, the same exact face I watched when you were laying on me, four years ago, staring off into space, with your... Continue Reading →

Bebe update: Two years

Bebe, A couple nights ago you couldn't sleep. You came to bed with me, and we spooned for a bit. After years and years of considering I may just be more of a fork, I realized a truth: You, me, right now, in this moment, are the perfect spoon. Two years ago, as the sun... Continue Reading →

Koala update: Three years.

The alleged phase starts way earlier than two, and by the time that two is turning into a three, it's... Continue Reading →

Bebe update: Twelve months.

Good night, beautiful little Bebe. I'm looking at you after you've fallen asleep at my chest. You're exhausted after an active day in the warm April sun over Jerusalem. Your eyes are shut and your forehead is glistening with sweat from our body heat together. You're an amazing creature. It's been a year since you... Continue Reading →

Koala update: Two years.

Happy birthday, Koala! I appreciate that you woke up today at the same hour you were born two years ago - 6:10 am. Could be worse; we've been there together, haven't we? And here I thought the first year saw the most change from start to finish... But the second year definitely held its own;... Continue Reading →

Koala update: Twelve months.

The year is here. Some kind of ultimate milestone. Profundity escapes me. I'm just impressed I'm still around, sane enough to tell the tale... Starting with today - the first birthday. Since the birth-day. Vaccines aside, I'm fairly certain by the evidence that Koala enjoyed what I call a 'naked cake grab' at dinner time. There's... Continue Reading →

Jewishly speaking…

On the Jewish calendar today is ב' אייר, which happens to be the date on which Koala was born last year. So happy first Hebrish birthday to my Koala! I'm sorry that you're feeling ill today... I'm sorry you have two or three new teeth coming in... I'm sorry I won't let you play with... Continue Reading →
