6 Months

Mom: Mataya! You are 6 months old already! The time went so fast and we have been just a bit busy, so that is why this interview is a few days late.

M(ataya): That is okay mom. I had fun with Oma and Opa while you were selling books at the craft fair last weekend.
Mom: I know. I am glad that you were a happy girl. So what is new for you?

M: Oh, you know, pretty much everything. New foods, which are really yummy. New toys and things to explore with my mouth and hands. I especially like these two fingers...

Mom: I know. You have them in your mouth quite often. How else do you stay busy.
M: Well, I love to play, roll and scoot around to get toys, tiny pieces of paper on the ground and my brother. I love my brother. And my Dad. And you, Mom.

Mom: I know, Mataya. You always look so happy when you see us. What are your favourite toys?

M: I really like anything especially if it makes a crinkly noise. I also really like music and wiggling around to different songs. And I like to be in the Exerscaucer and see all of the different things there. I could stay there for a long time.
Mom: I know you could and sometimes I am sorry for how much I put you in there. But I am glad you like it and that you are a happy girl. I love you!

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

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.
