A Little Surprise

Not only was Joash a surprise in coming early, but it was a surprise to me that he was a boy. We never found out what we were going to have, but I always pictured myself having a girl. I think it comes from growing up in a family with only sisters. What do I know about boys? Sure, I am married to a wonderful one, but really, what do I know about raising a boy?

But, I do wonder if subconsciously I knew I was having a boy. There were several times where I was purchasing something for the baby and I went with a more boy choice rather than a girl choice. Or maybe it is just my personal dislike of pink that drove me to chose the blue tone fabric for curtains and Boppy pillow cover. And a few of the gifts I received would have worked for a girl, but were certainly more boy color themed as well.

Either way, I love my little guy and wouldn't trade him for the world. But, I do hope that some day he will have a little sister. I don't know what he thinks about that idea though.

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.
