Boston in August

On our way out to New Jersey for the wedding, we made a quick stop in Boston to visit Derek and Christina. Derek and Wilbert have been good friends for a long time and Derek and his wife currently live in Boston while Derek is doing some post-doctorate research at M.I.T. They nicely let us spend the night at their place and gave us a quick tour of the Harvard area of Boston. This made Wilbert really excited because he got to see this...
 the Law office of Dewey, Cheetham and Howe, where Wilbert's favorite radio program Car Talk happens. (You can see the office sign on the third story window where the lights are on.)

We also got a quick tour of Harvard which was very nice to see.
 The statue of John Harvard, or the statue of three lies. Not the greatest family pictures, but it proves we were there.
We do wish we would have had a bit more time to spend in Boston, but enjoyed the time we did get to spend there. Thanks for being great hosts Derek and Christina!

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.
