There has been a lot of laughter in our house lately and here are a few of the stories.

Mataya is much different from her brother and LOVES bath time. She has recently learned how to splash in the tub. I have just have her sitting up in the tub and she will splash and splash the water with her hands. She gets so excited that she starts to move her feet too, which has caused her to tip over a few times. So, I watch her pretty close and love the smiles and laughter from my wet little girl.

Joash often has funny things to say. Yesterday, I was put on a pair of tights at home and noticed they had a hole in them. Joash said, "that is too bad, Mom. Where can you get some new ones?"

"Probably Target," I said, "I looked last time, but they didn't have any my size."

Joash replied, "Well next time maybe one of those conveyor belt ladies can find some for you."

I guess he is figuring out what a cashier does!

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.
