A Monday

I needed to a see a picture like this of Joash today. We started off with a rather rough morning. I was thankful I had a meeting and Joash was already going to visit Oma and Opa. We both needed a break from each other I think. When we came back home, it went better, but he has a cough, which didn't help him to nap well. So, we went to the beach. And that made everything better.

Happy Canada Day a day late. We did have a crazy weekend which probably contributed to the crabbiness. Saturday was the church picnic. So much fun and such wonderful weather! We went to the beach afterwards and there was a nice little pool of water caught by a sand bar that Joash and all of his little friends just loved playing in. He splashed and put things in his bucket and just had a great time in general. He was pretty wiped by the end of it. Sunday was a nice day as well, though we decided not to go to the fireworks. And today was beautiful weather as well. You know the heat wave that is hitting everywhere, but especially the east coast? Well, this is one of the best parts of living on an Island. We too are getting that heat wave, but the ocean that surrounds us moderates the temperature to a lovely high 70's/low 80's. No complaining here! We love summer.

And we are hoping for a fun and happy Tuesday. I am thankful that each day is a chance to start new.

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.
