My First Mother's Day

Being a mother has given me a new appreciation for what mother do. I never knew everything that being a mom meant. I didn't know all of the worries and fears that come with it. And I certainly didn't know all of the joys and wonderful things that are the best part of being a mother. I am still surprised at how just his little smile can totally make my day. And that makes Mother's Day all the more special. I  am still learning what it means to be a mother, but thanks, Mom, for all that you did and still do. You are the best.

My first Mother's day was very nice. Joash woke up at 1 in the morning because he couldn't wait any longer to tell me "Happy Mother's Day!" But then he slept right through until 8. We went to church and then to Wilbert's parents house where the non-mother's made and served the food. Joash didn't want to miss any of the action, so he refused to take his usual nap at Oma and Opa's. But, he fell asleep on the way home, so that was nice. Joash also had his Dad write a nice card for me that even had a cute poem inside. It was so cute and nice made me happy to be his mom.

I hope that all of you mom's had a great day yesterday!

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.
