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!

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.
