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!

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.
