9 Months

We are taking a short break from our vacation recap to bring you an interview with a very cute 9 month old. All of the interview photographs were taken by Amy Hanson.

 M(om): Well Joash, how has this ninth month of life treated you?
J(oash): It has been great, Mom. I have done a lot of new things for the first time and I am pretty happy with my life.
M:What were some of those firsts?

J: I flew on  an airplane and rode on a boat. I took my first trip to a foreign country. I also had my first ear infection, which was not such a fun first, but so it goes.
M:What things do you like to do these days?
J: I love to go outside. I like the fresh air and all of the things to see. I like going for walks with you, Mom and just sitting outside in my stroller too. I also like to play and move around. I can get from a sitting position to my tummy really well. I am trying really hard to move around, but it is tough. Right now I just pivot in circles on my tummy and sometimes slowly inch toward stuff with a combination of rolling and pulling myself forward with my arms. And yesterday, I learned how to give a high-five.
M: How is that appetite?
J: I love to eat! And forget that milk and formula. I love real food. I also like to feed myself a few things like bread and Mum-Mums, but it has to be the right texture. But you can feed me anything, Mom, and I will eat it.
M: Anything else you would like to say?
J: I don't think so, Mom. Can you please read to me my favorite book Baby Boo.
M: Okay, Joash. Wave bye-bye.
J:Wave? I don't care about waving, Mom. Why do you and Dad always try to get me to wave?
M: Never mind, Joash.

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.
