NYC Exodus

Hannah and I celebrated her Passover in New Jersey with Grandma and Grandpa. Michael had a wedding in Cape May so us ladies were on our own. Hannah had been practicing the Seder all week and she rose to the occasion on Friday night. Maybe next year she can read the four questions. She also got to try all sorts of new foods like matzah brie and matzah balls, which she particularly loved and which made Grandma very happy. Three days of photographing Hannah made Grandpa very happy.

All this Matzah is making me gassy.
Hannah's first Matzah Ball. Diagnosis: Delicious.
Michael came bac to join us on Sunday and we went to the Duck Pond in Ridgewood, NJ. It was really great there and Hannah had a lot of fun on the swings and slides. She came face-to-face with some pretty aggressive ducks and we made some loud quaking sounds of our own.

My peeps on Easter Sunday

The weekend ended with a trip to New York Eye & Ear Infirmary on Sunday afternoon. Hannah's incision on her left ear got red and a little swollen and we thought it best to get checked out. I was so nervous there could be something wrong with the implant and she would have to have it removed. Fortunately for Hannah, it turned out that one of the stitched never dissolved and it caused a little swelling. She had to have it drained and she was not happy. After a day on antibiotics and some ointment, the incision looks much better and I'm feeling much better. I'm glad we got it checked out.

I hope everyone had a happy and sweet Passover and Easter.


  1. It seems like I waited forever for Hannah to taste my motzahballs. I'm so glad she liked it.

    xxxxoooo Grandma

  2. Dear Hannah,

    With any luck, tomorrow is the day they activate your second ear. You (and Mommy) have had a rough week, so I hope they carry through.

    I wish you the best of luck and cant wait to see and hear all about it.

    I think of the three of you all the time and tell everyone about you all the time.

    Best wishes for great success tomorrow.
