In His Blood

I am starting to be convinced that there must be something to the saying "Farming is in his blood." I have used that phrase myself in reference to my husband, and now I see it being true of my son. Certainly we have given him tractors to play with, and a barn with animals. We go to the farm to visit Dad while he is the barn. But, I don't feel like I have forced farming on him in any way. 

Yesterday, Wilbert came home with a farming magazine, which Joash immediately gravitated to. So, he and Wilbert paged through it after lunch and Joash quickly found his favorite page.

"This one, right here."
 "See, isn't this a nice round bale wrapper?"

"I love this round bale wrapper!"
I took about 15 pictures of him with this magazine and he had his eyes closed on ALL of them. And he really only cares about this one page with the pictures of the round bale wrapper on it. There are tractors and cows and combines pictured throughout the magazine, but the page he keep coming back to is the round bale wrapper. What a kid!

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.
