The Big 3-0

Well, I have made it to yet another decade. And to celebrate, there were fireworks this year!
In case you can't tell, that is Wilbert and I standing with our arms around each other watching the fire works. 
 Well, really the fireworks were for this...
but I can pretend they were for me.

Since the wedding was on the same day, it was a different birthday from most. My in-laws left a balloon for me outside our hotel room door. I didn't get to see a lot of my husband throughout the day, but I stayed in the air conditioning for a long as possible (which was a great gift in the New Jersey head and humidity). Joash took a nice nap, so I got to read my book and watch the Olympics. And then it was time for the wedding. I had the most people ever sing "Happy Birthday" to me, which was very well done. And another great thing was that Karisa's family had some baby sitters lined up, so I could bring Joash to the farm house with the baby sitters and then head back to the party in the barn. That was so nice because Wilbert and I didn't get to dance at all at Jander's wedding because Joash didn't like how loud the music was. So I got to do the "Cupid Shuffle" and slow dance with my husband on my birthday.

So it was a different birthday, but a good one. And I will never forget Emil and Karisa's anniversary.

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.
