Man Does Not Live on Bread Alone...but Joash Sure Tries

First of all, I do not want to say that Joash is a bad eater, or even really a picky eater. But, he knows what he likes and what he wants when it comes to food. He takes after his mother and loves his bread, dairy and fruit. Veggies and meat he really doesn't want anything to do with. ( I am certain at this point my parents are laughing because they have told me I was the same way when I was little.) He has now gotten too smart for the hiding food in applesauce trick, so we have had to get a little creative.

I made some carrot bread earlier this week, which he loves. That can count as a vegetable, right? Wilbert spread a bit of mashed sweet potatoes on his bread for lunch yesterday. Sounds gross, but Joash thought it was great! And then last night for supper Wilbert hid veggies in Joash's bread and he gobbled them all up. At least I know that all of the food he gets is good food for the most part. We continue to offer meat, but we don't push that as much as the vegetables.

I am sure by the time he is a teenager, he will be eating us out of house and home.

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.
