It's That Time of Year

Whoa! December, where did you come from? Well, yes, here we are again. It has been a while since a post has been made, but I am trying to squeeze one in here before the kids wake up from naps.

A quick update. Mataya is doing awesome and growing like a weed. At her last doctor check up she weighed in at 16 lb 2 oz and has jumped back on her growth curve. And she is trying to sit up, but still prefers being on her tummy for most of the time and scooting and spinning around. 
 And since it is December, we are getting ready for Christmas. Joash is so excited for Christmas this year, which makes it fun for everyone. We put up the Christmas tree yesterday, which was a big hit.
I think today after nap time we are going to make a paper chain to help us count down the days until we get to travel to Michigan. Joash thinks this is happening a lot sooner than it really is, so I hope this visual will help him out a bit.

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.
