22 Months

 M(om): Hi Joash. We have had a busy day today and we will tell everyone about it later. But right now, it is time for your monthly interview because you are 22 months old today!

J(oash): I will smile nicely for the picture, Mom, now that I know to say "cheese." I still really like cheese. Can I have some cheese to eat?
M: Not right now. First can you tell us about how things are going?

J: Well, I am getting some more teeth, so that is throwing off my appetite and my sleeping a little bit. I really don't want to eat supper any more, though I will sometime lick something if it looks good. That is what dogs do with their tongues when they eat. I also like to copy you and dad quite a bit. Like when dad stretches, I like to stretch too. And I like to repeat that last words you and Dad say.

M: I know that Joash. That means we need to make sure we are teaching you good stuff. What do you like to play with lately?
 J: I love my tractors, especially when they are hooked up. I also like to put my blocks and other things into my loader. I really like my new, bigger sand box. And I like to play games with my balls, like kicking and rolling the ball to you and dad, or throwing it down the stairs. I still love reading books too, Mom.

M: I know and I certainly like reading them to you. What other things are you starting to do?

J: Oh, I like to sing. My favorite songs to sing are "ABC's," "Ba Ba Black Sheep," and "Twinkle, Twinkle." (But, they all sound a lot a like, mom). And I like to dance and jump!
 M: I do like hearing you sing, Joash. You do a very nice job. Let's tell people about your typical day.

J: Well, I wake up between 6:30 and 7 and play with my bunny and combine that I sleep with until you come and get me at 7. Then I eat breakfast and often look at the tractors in Dad's Farm Show. Then I get dressed and ready for the day and we usually read some books and then go outside. When we are outside, I like to play in
the sandbox and check on the pumpkins in the garden and pick some onions. Then we usually come back inside and make some muffins for coffee time. Dad comes home for coffee around 10 and I really like that. After coffee we go back outside until lunch. I have a nap from 1:30-3:30. After nap and a snack, sometimes we go to the beach, or we stay home and make supper. We eat supper at 5 and I play inside until it is time for a bath and bed at 7:30.

M: What a day. You certainly do many different things.

J: I am glad that you will do them with me, Mom.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

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.
