Hide and Seek

Joash loves to play hide and seek. He is not very good at though yet. First of all, when it is my turn to hide and his turn to count, he counts way too fast and I hardly have time to get into a decent spot to hide. Second, when it is his turn to hide he does a pretty good job of finding a place to hide in the house. (Outside, he thinks if he is near the trees, he is hidden, even though he is plainly in view.) But as soon as he knows you are looking,  he starts to say, "Here I am! Over here!" 

Today after supper, we prayed as we always do. We always have to remind Joash to close his eyes and fold his hands. He is pretty good at doing it, but he often covers his eyes with his hands. Tonight, after we said "Amen," Joash had his hands over his eyes. "Where are you?" he asked. Wilbert asked the question back to Joash and he replied, "Over here!" Then he took his hands off his eyes, giggled, and said, "My eyes were hiding!" 

Here is a nice picture where Joash's eyes are hiding. Wilbert would like me to point out the "manure scraper" hooked up to the 6410. Thanks for the Flessenlikker Tante Bertha.
 And how can you be sad when this is face you see when you get your 12 week old up from her nap.

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.
