We Love Picture Books!

A week ago, we were lucky enough to be featured on Candlewick’s year-long We Believe in Picture Books video project! Want to know what books we’re grabbing for? They are, in order: Baby Penguins Everywhere by Melissa Guion Hello! Hello! by Matthew Cordell The Watermelon Seed by Greg Pizzoli The Pet Project by Lisa Wheeler, [...]

Henry and Eli make a video

So, what do you get when you add two Star-Wars-obsessed kids, Legos, and a video camera? This. (Also: I feel the need to mention that they haven’t actually seen any of the Star Wars movies. So this is their version of Star Wars via, you know, book learnin’.) addthis_url = ‘′; addthis_title = ‘Henry+and+Eli+make+a+video’; addthis_pub [...]

Happy Birthday, Zuzu!

Today we fete Zuzu, who is now 4 (and also celebrate this fun brief time when, until August, we have kids who are 2, 4, 6, and 8 years old). We are making cherry cupcakes today, since apparently cherry cupcakes mean birthday. For her birthday dinner she requested: meatballs broccoli, for the people who want [...]

Ramona’s birthday recap

Here’s Ramona (and Zuzu) on her birthday, playing with her excellent new trolley bus toy that my mom got for her at the Clark. She also has a new yellow bunny from Susan and the best, softest, cutest doggie ever from Rope Swing Studio. And what better way to celebrate a dog-loving girl’s birthday than [...]


Here’s Zuzu, in response to “how old are you?” I’m also posting this video so you can all think, “Oh, at least my house isn’t as messy as hers.” addthis_url = ‘′; addthis_title = ’5-68-99-H’; addthis_pub = ”;

It’s all about the nod

There is something so, so cute to me about pre-verbal toddler nods and head shakes. They’re so excited, so happy: “I can tell you what I mean! I can say yes to milk, and no to socks!” I wanted to get a video of a Ramona nod before the opportunity passed me by and she [...]

Magical Pop-Up Baby

You know, you leave an empty chair around here, and before you know it, there are babies sprouting up all over the place. addthis_url = ‘′; addthis_title = ‘Magical+Pop-Up+Baby’; addthis_pub = ”;

The Language of Zuzu

Now offering classes in Zuzu 101, Conversational Zuzu, and Advanced Conversational Zuzu. Note that I am still a beginning speaker myself. Um, and note also that Iris’s house is clearly a lot cooler than our house. addthis_url = ‘′; addthis_title = ‘The+Language+of+Zuzu’; addthis_pub = ”;

Circular Reasoning

Ah, how I long for the days when you could just run in circles and it would pass for dancing. addthis_url = ‘′; addthis_title = ‘Circular+Reasoning’; addthis_pub = ”;

Weekly Zuzu: Vwa-pah!

Zuzu, being a third child, doesn’t say much. She is extremely communicative, but doesn’t really use conventional words. She uses a lot of signing and pointing and appropriate facial expressions. Eli was the same way. He didn’t say anything except for “Dada” and “Harpo” until he was 22 months old, at which point he started [...]
