Cute Pictures and Cute Words

It is so wonderful to see Mataya growing and changing already. She is so sweet and right now quite a calm and content baby. It is wonderful! I just love looking in her little eyes.
 And sleep! She is doing very well with her sleep. She naps several times a day with minimal fuss. The last few nights I have been feeding her at 8 and then again at 10 before I go to bed. Then she has been sleeping until 2 and 6. Her 6 am feeding I have been keeping short and then putting her back down for some sleep before getting her up at 8 to start the day. This works out nicely since Joash is up at 7. Then he and I can have an hour with just the two of us and I think he likes that a lot.

We are swaddling Mataya, like we did Joash. I love this picture because her little hand snuck its way out.
Joash is doing quite well. The silage started this week, so he has been spending lots of time at the farm and on the tractor. He is convinced that they can't do it without him.

The other day, we were outside and Joash spotted some buttercups in the yard. He picked one for me and one for himself. I said, "Thanks Joash. It is yellow, my favourite colour."

"Mine, too," he said.

I tried for a few minutes to put mine behind my ear, but the stem was too short so I told Joash I would just put it in my ponytail instead.

Joash paused for a minute, then brushed the stem of his flower through his hair. He looked at me, a bit concerned and said, "But I don't have a ponytail."

I then helped him put it behind his ear, which lasted about two minutes and then he gave the flower to me. I added it to the other one in my ponytail.

Planning for 2018

So about this time of the year last year, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and finally came to the conclusion that I was not keeping very good track of things and my life. So, I bought and planner and I love it. But, in my search for a planner, I kept thinking there has to be something that can not only help me plan well, but also help and encourage me spiritually. Then, last year Jamie Ivey highlighted Anchored Press in her 2016 Gift Giving Guide. And I knew I was going to be getting a planner from Anchored Press for 2018.
And it has arrived! And I love it!

I am so excited to start using this planner in the new year. I hope that it will help encourage me in all areas of my life.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

 The little home is full of all sorts of Mo…
