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.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

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.
