18 Months

 M(om): Joash, can you believe it?

J(oash): Believe what Mom?

M: You are 18 months old already! 1 1/2 years old! What a big boy you are!

J: Thanks Mom! I like being a big boy. I like it when you let me sit next to you on the couch or put me in a chair by myself. I like that I can run around outside and pick up lots of fun things like rocks and pine cones.

M: It is fun to see all of the different things you do everyday. What else do you like to do?
J: Oh, the same things as always, really. But now I really like to push my trucks and tractors. I like to push them back and forth with you. And I like to put my animals in the barn and say the sounds they make. I also like to point out things on pictures, including people like Oma and Opa.

M: Any new things you can do?

J: I can go down the stairs by myself now. And I sometimes like to give you a hug and a kiss.
M: That is really nice. What new words can you say?

J: A lot of them. Oma, Opa, apple, bath, bed, wall, wow, hi, bowl. There are probably more, but I can't remember them now.

M: Sleep update?

J: I only take one nap now. I have been getting up with sun lately, but now that you put things over my windows, I sleep long again.

M: And food?

J: I love to eat the food I like. My new favorite are raisins. Thanks for letting me try them.

M: No problem Joash. Thanks for talking to me.

J: I love you Mom!

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.
