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!

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.
