9 Months

Mom: Hello my smiley Mataya! You are 9 months old today!

M(ataya): I can't believe it Mom! It seems like it has taken my whole life to get here.

Mom: Well, it has. But anyway, what are you up to these days?
 M: I like to move. I can pretty much get where ever I want to go (and a few places I don't), by scooting. I wish you didn't have those gates up, though. The stairs are so interesting. I like to clap and I like to dance when you sing.

Mom: What things do you like to eat?

M: I really like fruit, Mum-mums and puffs. Most veggies are okay too.
 Mom: And how do you like to spend the time that you are awake?

M: I love to follow my brother around. But he doesn't like it when I touch his toys. I also really like bath time. And I like to try to crawl in challenging places like the exersaucer. I also like to do some different tricks with my tongue, which makes you and Dad laugh. And I do not like it when someone takes something away from me. That is not very nice!
Mom: And you sure let us know that. I am also glad that you sometimes say "Mama" now.

M: I know you like it, Mom! I love you!

Mom: I love you too, 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.
