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.

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.
