17 Months

M(om): Joash, do you know what time it is?

J(oash): Time for some cheese?

M: No Joash. It is time for another interview. You are 17 months old already.

J: I know Mom. I have been 17 months for a week now. Why didn't you do this interview earlier?

M: We were at the farm and it is just easier to do it when we are at our house. So, how is life?

J: It is good, especially now that I am starting to feel better.

M: I know Joash, we were both not feeling well for a while. I will be glad when this is behind us. What things are new in your life?

J: Well, I like that you are finally starting to understand me when I say a few words. Now you know when I want bread, see a clock or a ball, and I can say bye.

M: It is fun to hear you speak a little, though I don't think many other people other than your dad and I could understand you. What other things do you like to do?
J: Well, I still love to read books and go to the library. I also like pointing out all sorts of things in the pictures in my books, especially clocks. And I really like to go outside and walk around. There are so many different things to show you, Mom. Oh, and I like to go fly hunting in the house.

M: How about eating?

J: There are so many good foods! Rice is really good and the food you and Dad eat always looks so good. Thanks for letting me try it.

M: No, problem. Though you are a bit of a moocher. A sleep update for your fans?
J: I am having a hard time getting used to my crib again after sleeping in the Pack and Play for two weeks. But, I still sleep well at night when I fall asleep. Somedays I take a little cat nap in the morning and a longer nap in the afternoon. That seems work well for me. Then I am a happy boy for the day.

M: Joash, you are a happy boy. You make me and a lot of other people smile. Thanks for talking again!

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.
