Big Boy Bed

That's right! We have made the transition to the big boy bed. The picture above is after we got it all set up. Joash was very excited. And so far, so good. He has not fallen out and will tell you he needs to be close to the wall. He also still naps in it, which is a big relief. And he still waits for me to come and get him out of bed in the morning. He can climb up and down from it by himself, but he still likes me to pick him up from bed in the morning. And that is okay with me, because so far he has never tried to get out of bed once he has been tucked in. 

He also is trying a few other "big boy" things and his independence is certainly starting to come out. He likes to walk by himself, which sometimes causes a battle in parking lots. He always wants to go up and down the stairs by himself, which is nice. And he likes to take his pajamas off when it is time to get ready in the morning. Today he even mastered his one piece footie pj's and did the zipper and everything. While each stage brings new challenges, other things certainly get easier and that is nice!

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.
