First Pictures of Baby T #2

We had our ultrasound. Actually we had 2 and, no, we did not find out the gender of our baby. We had to have two ultrasounds because during the first one, the baby was turned in a funny position and refused to move around despite drinking some juice and taking three different walks around the  ward. So the technician was unable to get all of the pictures and measurements needed. 

So we headed back today. This time the baby was in a great position, but it was so active the technician had a difficult time getting a clear view for all of the pictures she needed. She had to be quick, but in the end she got them all.

So here is a glimpse of Baby T #2! In this first one, the baby is looking right at you, but it is covering up part of its face with its hand.
 And this one shows pretty much the whole length of the baby. It is basically doing a headstand in my body.
It was nice to see the baby twice, but I look forward to meeting it face to face in about 20 weeks.

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.
