Good Days

Some days...well, most days really, are really good days. Sure Joash has a melt down when I tell him not to do something, or when I won't give a treat to him...or his cow. But, for the most part he is a fun, sweet and smart kid.

But, I still enjoy having a bit of a break when Wilbert comes in throughout the day. And nap time. I love nap time. I am so thankful that my boy takes naps most days yet. And now nap time is also once again turning into nap time for mom, which is really nice.

So on days when I know Wilbert won't be around much, I try to have some different things to pull out and do with Joash. Yesterday we ventured further into the world of play-dough. I found a $2 set of play-dough tools at the Dollar Store and we were good to go. We played with play-dough and all fo the new tools for about an hour. As you can see, Joash give his approval.
 He doesn't quite have the strength or dexterity to push the play-dough through the extruder, but he likes to fill it up for mom to use and then play with the results.

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.
