A New Schedule

Before Joash was born, I did a bit of reading on schedules and things like that for a baby. Everywhere I read said the best thing you can do for your baby in regard to a schedule is to be consistent, especially with the time you put the baby to bed and the time the baby should get up to start his or her day. So, I picked 8 as the time for Joash to start his day. It worked out really nice around church and things like that. From an early age, I would wake Joash up at 8. I would get up at 7 and do my morning things so I would be already to go when Joash got up at 8.

Well, it seems like Joash has some other ideas. He is now sleeping straight through from 8:30 to 7, but he doesn't make it to 8 any more. I am not complaining because not getting up in the night at all is wonderful. So, I have had to adjust my schedule too. I now understand why my mom got up so early in the morning. Life is so much better when I have had a chance to pull myself together for the day before I need to take care of my baby. Now that mom is getting up a little bit earlier, every one is a little bit happier.

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.
