5 Months

 Mom: Mataya, you are 5 months old today!

M(ataya): I know, Mom. It is great isn't it?

Mom: I certainly think so. What is new in your world?

M: I love being around people. I also really like music. Some of the things we do at Kindermusik make me laugh. I also like to roll around and
 have started chewing on my toys.

Mom: Do you have any favorite toys?

M: I really like soft toys, especially my lamb and the cow with a squeaker inside. And there are lots of cool toys on my exersaucer that I like to explore.

Mom: How are sleeping and eating going?
 M: I like to eat and I am really hungry these days. Do you think I could try some of that big people food that you and Dad eat? I have been watching you really closely when you eat and I think I could do it.

Mom: Soon Mataya, soon. And what about sleep?

M: I like to sleep at night, but I am not so sure about naps, especially in the
morning. But when I do nap, I like to take a nice long one.

Mom: I know. We will keep working on naps. And finally Mataya, where is your favorite place to be?

M: With you mom. Either in your arms or in the wrap. I like to feel all safe and snuggley.

Mom: I like that too, Mataya.

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.
