2 Months In

Wow, it is so hard for me to believe that Mataya is two month old already. Time is going by so quickly. But now that VBS is finished for this summer, I feel like I can slow down a bit and take some time to just enjoy things. 

Though I did set out two big challenges for myself this week. One is to try potty training with Joash. So far, so good. I do think he is ready and I plan to give it three good days before I decide if it is working out or not. 

The second challenge was to try to get Mataya to nap in her crib. She sleeps great at night in her crib, but she doesn't want to nap in there. And the VBS week did not help matters at all. So, I was giving is a good effort today, but she is napping in her swing again right now. She was getting too tired I think and that does not help out the matter at all. So, this is her favorite way to nap right now.
She had her 2 month immunizations on Friday, which went as well as can be expected. She is 10lbs, 10 oz and 57 cm long. So she has grown quite a bit.

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.
