Fun in the Snow

We had a decent snow fall over the weekend and today turned out to be a lovely day. After morning coffee time, Wilbert decided it was time for Joash to make his first snowman. And Joash was really excited it about it! He got all bundled up...
And headed outside with Dad. Joash understood the basic snowman building concept and after making one snowman that eventually fell over, he decided it was much more fun to have Dad make big snow balls and roll them all over the yard to where Joash wanted to place them. This one needs to go right by this tree...
 We eventually decided to make Joash a little chair, which he thought was really nice. He spent quite a while pulling out all of the "sticks" from his chair (they were actually the stems of the leaves from the snowball picked up while it was being rolled around.
Joash liked all of the snow fun quite a bit, so we hope for a bit more snow this winter to do other fun things like sledding.

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.
