No Pictures, but Here's What's Happening

No pictures today as the computer is still out of order. It hasn't actually made it to the repair shop yet, but I don't really want to start to put pictures on the farm laptop. I would rather keep everything in the same space.
But, I do have a few fun stories and Joash quotes to share and some notes on what is happening Mataya's world.

 Yesterday, Joash was asking me a question. I don't remember what it was exactly, but it was something that either did not know the answer to or a question that didn't really have a "right" answer. I asked Joash what he thought. His responded, " I don't know. I will figure it out when I am older."

Last night at supper I said to Joash that Mataya and I were going to read the Bible for devotions. He said, "Mataya can't do that!" "Why not?" I asked, expecting to get an answer like she is too little or she can't read yet. But Joash confidently stated, "She can't turn the pages." True. That is very true.

Now Mataya has decided that it is time to learn to roll and that she must do it now. And when is the best time to learn. While you are in bed of course. When you are supposed to be sleeping at 3:30 am. She can get over just fine, but her arm gets stuck under her. And so once she gets in that position, she doesn't like it all and wails. So, night time sleep and naps times have been rather disrupted the last few days. Today finally, I swaddled her with both arms out and helped her fall asleep on her stomach. As soon as Joash could roll, he turned into a stomach sleeper, so it wouldn't surprise me if the same was true of her. So I am hoping this helps the process along a bit so we can get back to having good naps and nice long stretches in the night as well.

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.
