7 Months

M(om): Hey Joash! Can you believe you are 7 months old already?

J(oash): It does seem like time goes fast. It feels like you were just interviewing me yesterday.

M: Well, how is life at 7 months?

J: It is pretty good. I like seeing everything there is around me, especially people. I don't really like to be all alone any more.
M: What things do you like to do?

J: I like having a bath, especially hearing the sounds water makes as it coming out of the tap or being poured on me. I also like playing with my toys. I like variety, so I like to change it up between the ExcerSaucer, Gym, rolling around on the floor and sitting up with my toys around me.

M: Anything else?
 J: I am starting to get his game of peek-a-boo. I think it is pretty fun when you lay a blanket on my face and then I pull it off and see you again.

M: It is pretty fun. I like seeing you peek out from the top of blanket and break out into a smile. What about eating?

J: I love to eat, Mom. You know that. I like  all the new foods like cereal, sweet potatoes, squash, carrots and peas. I eat that meat too, but only when it is mixed in with my veggies.
M: Any other new developments you want to tell people about?

J: Well, I am really close to being able to sit up all by myself all of the time. I have also decided it is great to sleep 10-11 hours in a row at night. (You have a very nice smile, Mom.) No teeth yet, but I do love to drool and chew on my hands.

M: Thanks, Joash. I will let you get back to playing with red ring and purple frog.

J: No problem, Mom.

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.
