24 Months

Note: Sorry for the lack of pictures in this interview. Whenever the camera comes out, Joash just wants to look at the pictures and videos that are on it. I have to get better at "catching" him. Also, this is the last monthly interview. If I remember, I am going to try and do them every six months from now on.

M(om): Joash, it is time for an interview.

J(oash): What? My birthday was over a week ago. Why are you so late, Mom?

M: I have my reasons and we had visitors, so now is the time! What are your favorite things to do right now?

J: I really like birthdays, because I like to eat cake. I like to play with my tractors and load things up like always. I really like it when you and dad build towers and then I knock it over. I also like to sing.

M: What songs are you favorites?

J: "Baa Baa Black Sheep" "Itsy Bitsy Spider" "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and my most favorite is "Wheels on the Bus." I like to pick out different things that I see and say that they are on the bus and then listen to what you say those things do on the bus. It is fun!

M: I agree. So how is bath time?

J: I don't like baths, mom. I have to hold your hand the whole time. But it is better when we sing.

M: You are better at talking every day.

J: Thanks, mom. I like that I can now ask questions like, "Is tractor?" and you know I am looking for the tractor.

M: It is nice to be able to understand you. Well, I think that is all for right now. Let's get back to tower building.

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.
