5 Months

M(om): Joash, Can you believe you are 5 months old already?
J(oash): Of course mom! Look at all of the stuff I can do!
M: What can you do?
J: You know mom. I smile at you. I laugh sometimes. I like to make a laughing face, and I am working on getting sound to come out all of the time. And I can roll over.
M: You can? How come I never see you do? Why do you only do it in your bed?
J: I just don't like to show off, Mom.  
M: Okay. So how about bath time? 
J: I am starting to like them more and more. You saw me kicking and splashing a little bit. I think it will be more fun when it is warmer out.
M: Any other new stuff?
J: I am getting really good at sitting with support. I like that I can see everything around me and I don't have to bend so far to get things into my mouth.
M: Care to talk about sleep at all?
J: Well, I have figured out that I don't really need to cry to fall asleep. (Why are you jumping up and down with joy, mom?) It got really tiring after a while, so now I just roll onto my tummy and fall asleep. Nap time is pretty good. I am so much happier when I take a few good naps.
M: So, Joash, what is up with this sleeping position?
J: It is comfortable mom. I like sleeping on my hands flat on my face. My hands hold my nose up just high enough so I can breathe just fine.
M: Any thoughts about when you are going to give mom a break and sleep for some nice long stretches at night? You used to do it.
J: Oh, I don't know Mom. I am a growing boy and I need my food. Plus, I miss you during the night. But, once I see you and get a nice meal, I am all set to go back to sleep again.
M: Well, thanks again Joash. I will let you get back to you toys.
J: Thanks Mom.  Have fun making lunch.

Planning for 2018

So about this time of the year last year, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and finally came to the conclusion that I was not keeping very good track of things and my life. So, I bought and planner and I love it. But, in my search for a planner, I kept thinking there has to be something that can not only help me plan well, but also help and encourage me spiritually. Then, last year Jamie Ivey highlighted Anchored Press in her 2016 Gift Giving Guide. And I knew I was going to be getting a planner from Anchored Press for 2018.
And it has arrived! And I love it!

I am so excited to start using this planner in the new year. I hope that it will help encourage me in all areas of my life.

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…

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.

 The little home is full of all sorts of Mo…
