We have been so blessed to have a few members of our church family bring us some meals over the last week. They have all been delicious and Joash has tried most of them.

One of the meals we received earlier this week was a beef pot pie. Joash saw the pie plate and asked me what it was. I told him it was for supper.

"We going to have pie for supper?" he asked. You see, Joash, like his mom, has quite the sweet tooth. And, like his dad, pie is probably his favorite dessert of all.

So, I said, "Yes, we are having pie for supper." I hoped this would lead to Joash eating a lot for supper.

When Wilbert came in for supper, Joash ran up and shouted, "We having pie for supper!"

There was no fight to get him into his chair to eat this meal. We prayed and Wilbert started to scoop the pie. Joash asked for his piece and Wilbert put some on his plate.

Joash quickly saw this didn't look like a pie he was used to. He poked it. He studied it. He smelled it.

"It smells like supper," he said rather disappointedly.

"It is supper," we told him. But this was not the pie he was expecting.

He did eat some, but he may now be leary of pie for supper.


That's kind of like someone offering you a brownie only to find out it's a black bean brownie :)

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.
