19 Months

 M(om): Whoa! Joash you are way past your 19 month birthday!

J(oash): I know Mom. And you are really late doing your interview. Here is a cheesy smile with my eyes closed.

M: Umm... thanks. That seems to be about the only sort of picture I can take of you these days. And I know I am late with the interview, but we moved and then didn't have the internet for a while.
 J: I know mom, so lets do it now. What would like to know?

M: How do you like your new house?

J: It is great. I love being so close to the farm and Opa and the tractors. I like seeing everything that goes down the road. It is fun to have a new house and yard to explore.

M: What other things do you like to do?

J: Well, I also like watching the birds out the window. But why do they always fly away when I walk up to them?

M:  You are a lot bigger, Joash.
J: I also have 10 teeth now, with more on the way and I am getting good at running. I am having a bit of a tough time  falling asleep in my new rooms, but it is getting better.

M: And you sure are talking a lot. Do you remember what words you learned today?

J: Leaf, Ready and Knock. I like that you know what I am saying. That sure helps me out.

M: I like it too Joash. It helps Mom out a lot too. I like to know when you need a drink, where you want to go and that you can name many of your family members. Well. I think that we will end there. Bye, Joash.

J: Bye!

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.
