10 Weeks

He still can sleep just about any where.
Where has the time gone?

I can't believe my little boy is 10 weeks old already. We survived the two month immunizations. Thankfully he reacted to them by being extra sleepy, rather than extra cranky. He has a little cold right now too, but he is still pretty much his normal self. He keeps cooing and is continuing to smile even more. I saw several fleeting smiles this morning. But, of course, as soon as I grab the camera, he decides he is finished. He is quite strong in both his neck and his legs. He really enjoys standing up on feet with support.

We had a wonderful New Year (more on that later this week), but I am looking forward to a week with no plans at all. I want to work hard this week on getting Joash to go down for sleep better. Once he is asleep, he does very well. But, if he gets over tired, he can't relax enough to fall asleep. For example, last night he slept from 9:45pm to 4:15am, but it took him 45 minutes to fall asleep. So, I am going to try and pay close attention to him and figure out his sleep cues and try to get him in his crib before he hits the overtired stage.

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.
