He's a Natural

Look at this photo. No posing by mom here. Joash did this himself. He even nicely placed his hands on top of each other.

We are waiting for spring to come to the Island. It certainly looks like spring outside right now, but the minute you step out the door you are quickly reminded that it is not spring yet.

Joash is not quite himself these days. We rejoiced that he slept so long one night, but then we realized he had a slight fever. So it goes. Now the fever is gone, but things still are not quite right. He doesn't like to nurse as much right now,which is really frustrating.  I am trying really hard to nurse until he is 6 months. But if this keeps up much longer, I think my tune will change and we will try some cereal.

I am very excited because in less than one month my mom and sisters will be hear for a visit. Hurray! We are all looking forward to it.

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.
