Vacation Part 4 - By Plane, Car and Boat

When ever we talk about our trip, one of the first questions asked is how did Joash do with all of the traveling. And the answer is great.

Joash stayed awake for the whole flight out. Apparently when he is tired, loud noises scare him (like Wilbert sneezing) and silly things make him laugh ( like the window shade going up and down. Turbulence also brought some laughs.
 Hanging out on the plane with Mom.

The car rides went pretty well too. We were stuck in construction on the way to and from Minnesota. Joash did well at taking his naps. He did cry a for a while, but for being in the car for 12 hours, he did wonderfully.
 Sleeping in the car. He looks quite thoughtful.

On the way home, we took the ferry from Nova Scotia to the Island. It was a nice break in our day of travel and we all enjoyed being outside on the water. It was quite foggy and Joash was startled every time the fog horn sounded.

Thanks to our happy traveler, we now are confident we can continue to travel with 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.
