Love My Kids

Well, life is settling back down and that is a good thing. This week has been awesome to just be home, be a family and take some time to do some things that I enjoy. As I look back on this week, I can only smile as my kids bring me so much joy. How can you not smile at a face like this?
 Or this?
 My goals for the week are going really well. Potty training has gone better than I ever thought it could. And I attribute it to the fact that Joash was really ready. I don't know that I want to actually say he is totally diaper free and jinx myself, but I haven't change a big bum since Monday and I really like that.

Mataya is doing excellent as well. The last two days have gone much better in the nap department. And she has been able to nap more in her crib, which great too. The biggest change I made was to put her down earlier for her naps and it seems to be helping a lot. She has been falling asleep without her soother as well, so progress is being made. And she is just so pleasant and happy when she is awake.
 Joash just loves talking to her and being by her. He asks me to put her on the floor so he can be by her. So cute. And yesterday, I came back from the kitchen and found him showing her a book. So cute!
I love my kids!

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.
