Grandpa and Grandma Visit

My parents were able to visit from Michigan this past week and meet Joash and see our new home here. They liked Joash a lot.Here are some of the things that happened. Joash hung out with Grandpa and Grandma lot. He was held almost all of the time, which he really liked.

Joash was baptized on Sunday. It was so nice for all of his grandparents to be here to witness that. Here is Joash in his cute outfit.

And Joash got a lot of gifts. Christmas came a bit early to our house hold. Here is Joash modeling a new hat.
I will put up some more pictures of Joash and his new gifts as we use them.
As you can see, Joash is crying in this picture. He is didn't really want Grandma and Grandpa to leave, which everyone else agreed with. We are looking forward to the next visit.

Wow Denise, Joash looks a LOT like your dad. Very nice pics--thanks for posting them. Do you have plans to visit Holland anytime in December?

I think so too, Han. We won't be making it to Michigan this year. But next year we should be around. Have a wonderful holiday!

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.
