Take a Look At Me Now

Well, there is a pregnancy picture for all you wondering what I am looking like. We took this today and I am at 20 weeks. You can do a comparison to my last pregnancy if you like.

It is different this second time around. I think I look different then I did last time. I don't really feel big yet at all. And this is the first picture we have taken of the belly growing process. Last time, we started back at 14 weeks. And that is how it goes I guess. Though now that we are half way, I have started to make a mental list of what needs to happen before this baby comes. The biggest thing is to get Joash settled in a "big boy" bed and then moved stuff into the guest room that is going to become the baby's room. Joash seems excited about the idea of a big boy bed, but has shown no interest in potty training at all. And while it would be nice to not have two kids in diapers, I am not going to push him until he is ready. I mean how can you potty train a two year old who refuses to sit on a potty? Plus, I have heard of so many kids who revert when a new sibling is born. So, we are just going to wait for now unless Joash has a sudden change of mind about the whole potty thing. I am in no rush, though that might change a bit when baby #2 enters the picture.

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.
