Copy Cat

Today after lunch, Joash decided that he wanted to take a pretend nap with Dad before his real nap. Wilbert was more than happy to pretend with Joash. He even introduced Joash to the fine art of fake snoring. Soon, Joash would lay his head on his bunny and proceed to snore. It is was really cute, and reminded me of all the other ways Joash copies us already.

For example, the other day we were reading devotions after supper. Wilbert is a finger-licking page turner. After devotions, Joash wanted to look at the Bible a bit more. He then licked a few fingers on one hand and turned the page in the Bible. He used the hand he did not lick to turn the page, but it was still really funny.

Joash has decided he likes to brush his teeth now. He likes to try and do it himself, and his favorite part is rinsing off his toothbrush in the sink. He rinses the brush and then taps it a few times on the edge of the sink. I know he learned that from me, because we often brush our teeth together.

Wilbert has a smart phone and it plays a certain sound when we get an e-mail. So, often we hear the sound and usually one of us will say "E-mail" out loud. Yesterday we got an e-mail during supper and we both swear Joash said, "E-mail" as plain as day. That was a little scary.

As I think about it, there are a few things that Joash does I should copy. He says a very enthusiastic "Amen" when we pray. We we say, "Let's do devotions," he get really excited and points to the Bible. These little examples of child-like faith are a living lesson for me.

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.
