At the age of five, Ezra can now write his own name, count to a hundred, has lost his first baby tooth (yeah, a bit earlier than most kids), and finished his first year of school.

Ezra's Fifth Birthday

He is really into Super Mario now, is able to finish World 1-1 of Super Mario Bros by himself, and enjoys watching us play through Super Mario 64, Sunshine, and Galaxy on the Nintendo Switch. Through the course of lockdown he’s been using combinations of toys to build his own Super Mario levels, in 2D and 3D, so we got him a LEGO Super Mario set.

We’re still in the same pandemic we were in last year but at least we’ve settled into the new house.


Mamma mia.
