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.

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.
