Around Home Lately

Well, after all of the hullabaloo of the holidays is over, it feels like it has taken us this long to fully recover from all of it. Both kids got a cold over Christmas, and it seems to just hang on. One day they seem better, the next day they have a runny nose again. But overall, everyone has been in good spirits. Joash still love his sister.
 And his sister is still on the move. In the picture below, she has just scooted between the chair legs like it was a little tunnel.
She is currently moving around using pretty much a one arm, one leg scoot. And she is getting pretty quick. She is also working on how to transition from sitting to being on her belly so she can move around. But some time she gets stuck in some funny positions and I have to rescue her to finish the transition. Things are no longer safe on the floor and low shelves!

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.
