20 Months

 M(om): Hello my 20 month old boy! How are you today?

J(oash): I am pretty good mom. There sure is a lot of excitement and things happening aren't there?

M: Yes there is Joash. We have been busy with your Tante Reina's prom and graduation and now we are busy getting ready for the weddings this summer. Plus the farm and the garden need to be taken care of. But, what have you been up to?

J: I have been busy too learning new words and how to do different things, like ride nicely in a wagon for the wedding.
 M: You have an important role in the wedding and I know that you will do great. What things do you say now?

J: Oh all sorts of things. I know lots of words like "milk truck," "grape" and "calf." I sometimes can put to words together and say things like "more juice" at snack time or "other baby" when playing with the dolls.

M: It is fun to hear you talk. What else is new?

J: I am pretty good at running and I like to go up and down the steps just holding on to your hand. I also really like to pickup rocks.
J: Oh and I like it when you help me do somersaults.

M: I know. You always look a little silly when you get ready to do one.  Anything else you would people to know?

J: I can make matches with the animals on my fridge farm. My favorite is the pig and the sheep.
M: What other things do you like to do?

J: I like to ride in the stroller, wagon or on the tractor. I also like to go for bike rides with Oma. And I like to visit the farm. Today we went to watch the cows getting their hoofs trimmed. It was very interesting. I also really like blowing bubbles.

M: Well, we better enjoy the rest of this nice day. It looks like it might be a rainy week.

J: Okay!

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.
