Where Does the Time Go?

When you have kids, everyone always says to treasure those early years because they go by so quickly. Well, that is certainly true. I have filled out the registration papers for Joash to go to preschool in the fall. He is just going to go two mornings a week, but I can't believe this time is here already. Yet, I am really excited for him. I think he just going to blossom in school and I really hope that he will learn how to play with kids his own age. He is going to be attending the preschool that is located in our church, so on Tuesday at Coffee Break, he talked with the teacher a little bit and got to see some of the fun stuff they get to play with at school. Since then, he gets very excited about talking about school.

Another funny things we noticed about Joash is how he seems to pick a word of the day and use that word as much as possible, whether is fits the situation or not. A few of his words recently have been "disaster," "energy" and "mischief." He has also told several people how it took us "10 whole days to get to Michigan." We really never know what he is going to say next!

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.
