21 Months

M(om): Hi Joash! I haven't seem much of you this week, since I have been busy at VBS and you have been spending your mornings at the farm. How are you doing?

J(oash): I am doing great Mom! I really like to go to Opa's house, but I am still a bit sad when you leave. But, we have lots of fun

M: I am glad Joash. What can you do now that you are 21 months?

J:Well, I can say even more words and I like to string two word phrases together. Today I said, "Joash nap" at nap time, which really seem to surprise you, mom.
 M: It was surprising. Not everyone goes down for a nap so well. Anything else?

J: I also like to repeat things that people say to me. I learn so many new words this way and people always seem to smile when I do it.

M: That is because it is so nice to hear you say such nice things. What do you like to play with now?
The concentration face.

 J: I still really like my books, tractors and trucks. I have a new loader. My new favorite thing to do is hook them all together. Thanks for helping me do this, Mom. I also like to play in the sand. I also like to pretend that different things are eating, like my farmer or my animals.
M: Any other new skills?

J: I am getting better at going up stairs. Now if there is a nice railing along the side, I can grab on the banister and walk up the stairs, just like you and Dad. It is fun to do that!

M: And it is fun to watch you do that! I will let you get back to your tractor train. Bye Joash!

J: Bye-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.
