Our First Look at Baby T.

Today was the big day of the ultra sound. It was so fun! Once I was assured that everything looked normal, I was able to relax and just enjoy seeing our baby. We did not find out the gender because we like surprises and the baby also refused to show its face. But everything looked really good. The measurements showed that it is right on track. The measurements placed our due date back a few days, but still in early November. And the measurements said the baby is right in the middle range for size, so that is good too.
Here is the whole baby. You can see the legs, spine and head. It has decided that it likes to hang out upside down, so its head is down by my bladder and its limbs are all on my right side, which confirms the movement I have been feeling. It likes kick me right under my right ribs.
Some nice legs and feet.
Showing off its arm muscles.

It was so wonderful to see our baby today and know that everything is going well. It hard to believe that next week we will be half way there.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
