Full of Potential

Joash was part of the sermon on Sunday. He slept through the whole thing. Our pastor picked him up from us, brought him to the front of church and talked about how a baby is full of potential. We don't know what Joash is going to be like when he grows up. We don't know who he will meet or where he will go. He has the potential to do any number of wonderful and amazing things. The pastor then connected this to our new life in Christ as Christians. We too are full of potential to do amazing things for God's Kingdom. It was a beautiful thought that warmed my heart.

The funny part for us was one of the things our pastor choose to say about Joash is that he could be a great hockey player and be a star for the Toronto Maple Leafs and help them win some games. When he said that, Wilbert and I just looked at each other and laughed. Sorry Joash, but I don't think being a great hockey star is in your gene pool. You have two very non-athletic parents. I think I would go for something in music if I were you.

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.
