Taking a Walk

Now that the weather is finally getting a little more summer like, Joash and I have been taking a walk after has afternoon nap any day we can. So, I thought you might like to go for a walk with us.
 Joash is strapped in and ready to go. He is really fascinated with any belts or straps that are put around him. His car seat, his high chair, anything. He loves to play with the straps, so it makes strapping him in pretty easy.
 This is the road we typically walk on. It is just a little walk down the road we live on. It is nice because it is paved and not very busy. We rarely meet any traffic on this road. Our goal...the top of the hill.

 "Look at the nice view, Mom."
 Can you see the water? I love this view, but the picture probably doesn't do it justice. We are overlooking the Covehead Bay and the community of Stanhope, along with some lovely potato fields.
That is the ocean way out there.
At the top of the hill there is this small cemetery. This is usually where we turn around and head back home. It take us about 40 minutes to do this walk, depending on what the wind is doing. Strollers are not the most aerodynamic thing ever made.

We hope that we will get a lot of walks in this year.

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.
