12 Months

M(om): Joash, can I interupt you for a few minutes?

J(oash): Okay Mom. But I really like looking at all of the farm magazines.

M: Thanks. So, how does it feel to be 1 year old?

J: It is good. I didn't know what a big deal it was. Everyone kept singing to me and I got to tear a lot of bright colored paper off of things. How come you won't let me rip paper any time I want too, Mom?

M: Umm... you can only rip paper on special days. So what are you up to these days?

J: Well, I love to be on the move. I can crawl any where I want, even up the stairs. I also like to stand by furniture and walk around holding on the furniture. The coffee table is my favorite thing to stand by. I like to put things on top of the table and them push them off the side. It is really fun! And getting down is really easy too.

M: What are your favorite toys these days?

J: I really like the new toys I got for my birthday. I got some fun puzzles and a barn that makes noises when
I open up the gates. I like to put all of the animals in the silo. And I still like my books and barrels.

M: When people see you, what do you usually do?

J: Smile and jabber a bit. Sometimes I wave, but usually only to dad. If I see anything with wheels on it, I make my tractor/truck noise. I know that it really is a good engine noise. And I like to say, "da-da" for everything. Even you mom.

M: I know. Some day I think you should try saying "mom." How is eating going?

J: I still really like to eat. I am excited that I am eating more of the same foods that you and dad eat. I really like to feed myself things like bread, cheese and fruit. I really like my snack puffs and my new favorite food is grapes. I like my veggies to have some applesauce on them. I don't really like meat. It is really hard to chew. And pasta isn't my favorite right now.

M: Well, thanks for chatting Joash. 

J: No problem Mom. I love talking with you.

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.
