Life Around Here

Sorry to everyone who has been dissapointed with my lack of posts lately. It has been a bit busy lately. We have been busy moving things around, getting ready for the baby. Lots of meeting and different things have been taking place. I have been doing a bit of extra cooking trying to get some freezer meals and things in the freezer to have on hand for when the baby arrives. And I have hit the third-trimester tired stage, so I have been enjoying a few more naps lately, which has been very nice.

Joash has been busy too. He helped his dad tune the piano.
 He has also been busy fixing things. He likes to use his hammer.
I was trying to get a picture of him and his hammer, so I told him to hold his hammer still. And this is what I got.
It makes me laugh and I hope it brings a smile to your face too.

Another story that makes me laugh every time I think about it. We have been working on getting Joash to not hit people. So, one day, after a warning to not hit, Joash was showing me how he could swing his arms around and not hit anything. He swung his arms around with such force, that he swung himself right off his feet and landed on his stomach. It caught him by surprise and he didn't know whether to laugh or cry. I was laughing really hard, so he started laughing too. It was just like something you would see on America's Funniest Home Videos.

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.
