The Wedding Weekend - Joash Style

Since Joash did not have a job at this wedding, he had lots of free time to do many things.

Joash loved that we spent a lot of our time at a farm. The reception was held at Karisa's family farm. When we first pulled up and got Joash out of the car, he looked around and acted his usual bashful self. But, soon he spotted some cows, shouted out the word cows, and got down and went to give them some hay. He spend a lot of time taking hay from bales that were being used as seating and bringing it to the cows.
He also tried to feed the farm dog hay and liked to show us all what the dog does with her tongue.
 When we had a bit of down time, the front desk at our hotel told us about this great park in the area, so we went to check it out. It was great! The park was split into two sections, one for older kids and one for kids about Joash's age. He loved it! He drove a truck with dad...
 And played with all sort of fun things in this big sandbox they had.
 And, being in the Olympic spirit, he did his best balance beam walk.
Here is Joash showing his enthusiasm for the Olympics and snacks at the hotel. Notice how his outfit allows him to cheer for both the American and Canadian teams.

 During the wedding, Joash sat with me in the front row. I was very glad Tiffany was with us because she was Joash's favourite person of the day. At the reception, Joash cheered and clapped loudly when everyone else clapped. He also rang the bell for a kiss.

The next day we helped with clean-up. Joash was especially helpful when it came to taking apart the dance floor. The guys took all of the screws out and Joash helped pick them up and put them in  a jar. He took his job very seriously.

Overall, Joash did great on the trip, but I don't think we will be taking any longer road trips until he is bit a older.

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.
