15 Months

 M(om): Can you believe it Joash? You are 15 months old! Where did the time go?

J(oash): I know Mom. Hey, why didn't you interview me last month?

M: Well, we were in Michigan and it was Christmas day and by the time I remembered and had a chance to get around to it, we were not that far away from today. So, I thought I would just do it all in one. So, what is new with you?

J: Well, the biggest thing is I am walking. I really like getting around by myself and being able to carry things with me.

M: You are getting very good at walking. What are your favorite things to play with?

J: Well, I still really like my books. I am so glad you started to sell Usborne books! I like listening to all of the new stories. I also like my ball, tractors, barn and the animals. One of my favorite things to do is to put things inside of the fence by my barn. I like to put as many animals in as possible. I also like the Weeble house that I got for Christmas. I also love splashing in the tub!

M: What things do you like to eat these days?

J: Well, I don't think it has changed all that much. I like to feed myself more and I have learned that somethings like peas and carrots are really good all by themselves. I still really like my bread, cheese and fruit. I also like oatmeal and yogurt quite a bit as well.

M: Any words that you would like to say for everyone to here?

J: I am very good at "Dada" and "Mama." I can sign "more," "please," "all done," "drink," and "milk." So I am pretty good at getting my point across without saying too much.

M: And sleeping?

J: I sleep great at night, but I am not really sure I need to two naps any more.

M: Well ,we shall see about that in the month to come.

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.
