2 Months

 Mom: Mataya, you are 2 months old today!

M(ataya): I know Mom! Time goes by so quickly.

Mom: You're telling me. And you are growing and changing so much. Tell me a little about what you like to do.
 M: Well, I like to eat, sleep and I have started to coo and smile. I like the reactions I get from people when I coo and smile at them.

Mom: It makes everyone to happy to see that nice little smile and hear the sound of your cute voice.

M: I also really like watching my brother. But he is a little crazy sometimes, mom. I have to keep turning my head to watch him.
 Mom: I know, he is full of energy. How is sleeping going?

M: I like to sleep. Right now I like to nap swaddled up really tight and I like to nap in my swing. At night I like to be in my bed and I usually want to see you one time during the night mom, just to make sure you are there.

Mom: And I don't mind that at all, Mataya.
M: I also like to be on my tummy quite a bit. It feels good and I can move around and get into some really interesting positions that way.

Mom: That's for sure. I am going to have to take a picture of you in one of those crazy positions soon. Well, I better let you go so you can nap.

M: Do I have to, mom?

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.
