It Doesn't Take Much

Joash was one of the ring bearers in the wedding this weekend. And his uncle and aunt did a great job picking out a gift for him. He got the loader in the pictured above and a matching dump truck. His face lit up when he pulled them from the bag. The other ring bearer also got a large dump truck that looked similar. A lack of sleep caused Joash to have a major melt down when he thought the other ring bearer was taking his dump truck.

When we got home after the crazy weekend, Joash was a bit out of sorts. I had to convince him that his dump truck and loader needed a bath in order to get him in the tub. And then after the bath, he would not let them go. It is not easy to carry a 20 month old who is clutching a loader and dump truck. This also meant the loader and dump truck joined Joash in his crib for the first part of the night in order for him to fall asleep without a melt down. I took them out later while he was sleeping.

So, it really doesn't take much to make this boy happy. Give him anything with wheels and he is good to go!

I love it! While I'm sure it was a little annoying, it's really cute too.

We can totally relate. Is he ever a cute kid, though!

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.
