Spring is Coming...Slowly

I am not going to complain about the weather. We certainly do not have it as bad as some other parts of the country. Spring is on its way...slowly. Over the last week, we had some nice sunny days that were on the warmer side. Not really warm yet, but warmer. And the sun just begged us to get outside. And while I am a summer lover and love being in the sunshine, I would be very okay with a late  or even on time spring this year. That way baby #2 can arrive, and we can hopefully be a bit settled before Wilbert has the long field hours making silage. Last  year, spring was very early and Wilbert was in the thick of silage right when our baby is due. So whenever I get a little bummed about Spring coming so slowly, I just remind myself that it will be better this way.

Joash really enjoys picking up sticks, which makes that clean up chore go easier. He helped at Oma and Opa's, too.
 The sandbox isn't out yet (hopefully this weekend) but Joash found a bit of dirt to dig around in.
 And he had to pull out his big loader tractor. He is really looking forward to playing outside in the summer.

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.
