It's Been a While

Sorry to all of you who check frequently for updates. It has been a while, I know. Probably my longest break since I got back to blogging after Joash was born. There are two really good reasons for my vacation from blogging.

First, I was sick. Feverish for four days. All I did from Sunday until yesterday was sleep, eat (because I knew I should, not because I was hungry) and feed my son. Oh and I did laundry, because the poor boy needed some clothing. It was pretty bad. Had I still been teaching, I would have needed a sub for at least three days. The most I ever missed while teaching was two days in a row. But finally now I am feeling so much better. I think I had a combination of things, but I will spare you the details. I did try out the walk-in clinics here on the island, since I couldn't get into see my doctor, and let me tell you, I learned a lot that day. But, I did finally see a doctor and got some meds which have greatly helped my recovery.

Second, our internet was acting really dumb for about the last week. It was really spotty. When it worked, it was fine, but then it wouldn't work for hours on end. Finally, we called and a nice technician came and found the problem and now it has been working great. So hopefully Skype will work well now once again.

So, we will get back on track with our blogging now. Stay tuned.

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.
