Let's Paint

I have a hard time knowing what Joash would like or can handle in the arts and crafts department. I really like to do arts and crafts and I would love to do some with him. But, I am never really sure where to start. And then I see all of the these great mom on Facebook and the internet who do such amazing crafts with their kids and think, "Yikes! We better do something!"

We have tried finger painting, but Joash doesn't like the feel of the paint on his fingers. Then, one of my friends suggested trying a paint with water book. I thought this might work, and it was a good excuse to get some paint brushes. So we tried it out yesterday.

He like it, but like most of his activities right now, his attention span is a bit limited. He painted a good part of the first picture, but then he just wanted to look at the different pictures in the book. We will try it again another day and see what happens!

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.
