6 Months

M(om): Joash, can you believe you are 6 months old already?
J(oash): Sure I can, Mom. It feels like I have been around for a long time.
M: So, what is new with you these days?
 J: Well, I love to play, eat, sleep (sometimes) and roll over. I find it funny how excited you get when I roll over in front of you. I wish I could touch more things with my hands. Don't you see me always reaching for stuff, Mom? How come you push so many things out of my way?
M: I don't quite think you are ready to handle plates, glasses and silverware. I think you need to start smaller, like with a sippy cup or something. What are eating these days?
J: I have started eating rice cereal, which is really yummy and today I had oat cereal for the first time and that was really good too.
 M: Any favorite toys or activities?
J: I love going to different places and seeing all of the different people and things around me. I also like playing with many of my toys, but my favorite right now is either the ExcerSaucer or the Red Ring Rattle I have. Oh, and I really like this green star.
M: Well, it is fun to see you roll around now. How about sitting?
J: I like to sit, but I get so excited with all of the other things around me, that I tend to tip over while I am reaching for stuff. So, I am glad that you put this pillow around me for support.
M: Anything else you would like to say?
J: Well, I am excited to see my grandma and my aunts this week. I am a little sad that the people that make flight schedules decided to change my grandma and Aunt Dawn's schedule so much that they now arrive 1/2 a day later, but at least they still get to see me. So, Aunt Joy, I will pick you up at the airport on Wednesday and Grandma and Aunt Dawn, I will see you on Thursday.
M: That's right. See you all then!

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.
