Mataya - 7 Month Interview

 Mom: Hey Mataya! You are 7 months old!

M(ataya): Yes Mom! I am getting to be pretty big.

Mom: You certainly are. What big things are doing lately?

M: I am starting to sit up a bit, but I still prefer to be on my tummy. That way I can scoot around and get
 into things. I like to eat and I will eat anything, especially paper. I like the challenge of finding the tiniest bit of paper of on the floor and then trying to eat them before you catch me. I also enjoy chewing on the cloth you use to wipe my face after I eat for a while. Cloths are very tasty.

Mom: I am glad that you are such a content girl. It is so nice that you will just sit in your chair for a while after you eat. It helps Mom get some things done around meal times. How is sleep going?

M: I think it is good. I like to have nap for about an hour in the morning and then another hour and a half in the afternoon. And I sleep well at night, too.
Mom: You do sleep well at night and go down to sleep pretty easily, too. Mom really likes that. Anything else you want to tell people?

M: I like to dance. Anytime I hear some music, I can't help but wiggle and move.

M: It is pretty cute. Thanks for talking again, Mataya!

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.
