Sleep Update for Mataya

When Joash was young, I gave lots of sleep updates on the blog. I certainly felt sleep deprived when he was small. With Mataya it has been so much better. I know I am sleep deprived, but it doesn't bug me as much (or I can't let it bug with a 2 year old running around.) She has been pretty consistent with her schedule. I would feed her around 10 right before I went to bed and then she would wake up at 2 and then again at 6. Not bad at all and she would go right back to sleep after this as well.

Well, last night I fed her at 10 and I didn't hear anything from her until 4:30! I got up to feed her, but then she was quiet again. So I went back to bed and slept until 5:15 when she woke up and meant it! And then I just stayed up and had an hour of quiet to myself, which is why you are getting a blog post written at a rather early hour of the day.

And what's a blog post without a few a pictures. 
Mataya and Dad hanging out on a rainy day.

Joash asked to hold Mataya several times yesterday. It is pretty cute, but as soon as she makes any sort of sound, Joash quickly says, "You hold her, mommy."

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.
