A Mission

It seems that everyday Joash finds some different things to do. Little tasks that he really enjoys and takes very seriously. His little missions.

For example, he is now starting to pick up his toys a little bit at the end of the day. Espeically his books. He will pick up all of the books and put them in the books basket. He takes this little mission very seriously and checks over the floor several times to make sure he has gotten all of the books.

Another thing he really enjoys doing is playing with cookie cutters. My cookie cutters are stored in a tin. If I open the tin, he will take all of the cookie cutters out, one by one and lay them on the floor. Then he will put them back in the tin, one by one.

One his latest missions in the pop cans in the pantry. He will take each pop can out of the box...
 And then walk a few steps over the table and set the can on the table.
And then he will take them down again and put them back in the box. He did this at least three times in a row today. I am not sure why, but it was a very important mission to him.

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.
