Booby Trap

The other day, we spent some time at the beach as a family. Joash took a nice nap on the blanket by water. The sound of the waves certainly lulled him to sleep.

While he was sleeping, Wilbert decided to build a sand castle. It turned into a team effort, which was quite fun. The last things Wilbert decided to add to his castle was a booby trap. He had dug a hole in the sand to at the nice wet sand underneath. He covered the hole with a criss cross of sticks and the some seaweed and then some sand.

It turned out to be a really good booby trap because even though I watched him build it, I was the one who got caught in it. Joash was getting fussy (because, we later found out, he had an ear infection), so I was hurrying around, gathering our things up. My hands were full and I was walking over to grab the last towel when I stepped right into the middle of the booby trap and found my left leg in a hole up to my knee and all of our stuff all over the sand.

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.
