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!

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.
