Well I didn’t even get to blog about our long Labor Day weekend or some of our final lazy days of summer, and wham! Here it is, the first day of school. Ezra is transitioning into a new (humongous) school and handled it like a trooper this a.m. Zoe is returning to her school for a full day and UPK classes – and she is definitely ready for it. My husband and I just noted that this is the first time in 8 years that we have a full 6 hours of alone time during the weekdays. Have we taken the attachment parenting thing too far? I already miss them – but look at how much they’ve grown (compare to last year by clicking here) !

Good thing they are opening up the hydrants in our streets… cooling off NYC style:

These two – when they get along and can tolerate a quick ride on the subway – we can get to the swings at Central Park within 20 minutes. If no one wants to deal with the subway, Rainbow Berry Yogurt in our ‘hood seems to be their favorite stop. I think it’s the whacky furniture and the mural that makes it feel like an extra treat. I will miss these guys and our lazy days of summer. Almost time for school..

After a pretty near perfect day at the beach (Jacob Riis beach to be exact) – where Ezra coaxed me into the HUGE warm waves to be smashed around with him on the shore (a new game that he loves) – we went to this totally yummy spot for some fish tacos. There was a bit of a long line but it was definitely worth the wait for fresh ingredients, and a fresh coconut as our beverage. Rumor has it the owner surfs in South East Asia on the off season, and then opens this little taco hut for the summer only. Check out their fun promo movie here; http://rockawaytaco.com/.

Hey you… this is YOU during the week we first brought you home and clearly the both of us needed a lot of sleep. What a joy you’ve been – and I cannot keep up to how fast you and your sister have grown but I always remember that new puppy smell you had when you were tiny. We called you ‘our little man’ and ‘Mister Ezra’ because you always seem to be a wise soul in a little body, but now that body is catching up too. I shudder to think that you’ll soon go from being a big boy to a man, but I imagine it’s true seeing as this transition from baby to boy has gone so quickly.
Happy 8th birthday my boo bear. Here are some pictures of the teeny tiny parts of you that we took in when we first met you, to remind you of how much you’ve grown!

This creative momma had another baby! Beautiful little August came into the world August 2nd, and we were invited to their excellent home with the lounge in the garage –

Ezra was so moved by what the rabbi said during the service. At one point he looked at me with tears in his eyes and said “mommy I’m crying a little and I don’t know why – maybe ’cause the baby is so cute?”

I think he was responding to the rabbi’s request to have the two older brothers hold their new baby and promise that they will share their toys, teach him to be safe, etc. Zoe enjoyed riding a tricycle that looked like one that I USED in the 70s! Ok basically I took these photos because Zoe actually chose to wear something that wasn’t pink, for the first time in years!
It was a lovely time.

.. are running around enjoying their birthdays this week. All three were born within 10 days of each other, and all have known each other since they were a year old or less. I love that they still want to spend so much time hanging out together.

Ezra, Lea and Max – about to turn, turning and already turned 8 respectively. Scary that the mustache seems to just fit on E’s face!
