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.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

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.
