A Closet Full

You know how we like to get a deal on things (see here and here for examples). Well, I feel like I got an okay deal on some things this past week. I am a member a group on Facebook called Charlottetown Kids Buy, Sell, Swap. It a great place to post things that you are either looking for or want to get ride of. You have to act quickly though. Most things are snatched almost as soon as they are posted. I always look for things for Joash, but have never had very much luck.

Until this week. I had noticed a lot of boys clothes, but was too late to get it. Then the seller reposted, saying the original buyer had changed her mind. So I jumped on it and got it. It was as a set of  18-24 months clothes, which I know Joash will grow into. The next say, I saw another seller posting a lot 12-18 month boys clothes. I just happened to be looking shortly after she posted it, so no one had commented on it yet. So, I did and as I was looking at her other pictures, I noticed she had a winter coat, snow pants, and a small lot of 18-24 month clothes. I made her an offer for all of it, which she excepted. 

So, Joash is pretty much clothed for the next year. I would like to get him a winter church outfit and he may need a few more pairs of pants and pajamas, but for his everyday clothes, he is set. He will also need some shoes, but I don't really see the point of getting shoes until he starts walking, so I am waiting on that as well. Hurray for good deals!

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.
