A funny thing happened this weekend... Ezra's birthdad came for a visit. We have been emailing for 6 months now and so we were all happy to finally meet. He is a very nice and caring young man and we were happy to spend our weekend with him. But, because of the short notice of his trip out here, Blaine was stuck working most of the weekend and it was mostly just Bella, Ez and I hanging out with him. So, what to do all weekend with a 20 year old guy that I've just met? I thought he'd enjoy going with me to take Ezra's 6 month pictures and so I scheduled a portrait session at Target. We decided to also get some pics taken of Ez and his birthdad together as a gift to him. So, I explain to the Target people that we'll get some pics of Ez alone and some pics of the two guys together. They immediately start saying things like, "Dad, you look over here. Dad, do this." Well, that didn't bother me because, afterall, he is a dad in the technical meaning of the word. But, then they start saying things to me like, "Your husband this and your husband that." O.K. I'm pretty sure that I look like I'm in my 30's and Ezra's birthdad looks like he is barely 20. In addition, we had Bella with us who is 3 and a half years old. I am sure that the good folks at Target must have had an interesting conversation about us after we left. Afterall, if we really had been a couple, I should probably be in jail right about now.
Oh, and Happy 6 months to our sweet little Ez.
