10 Months

Mom: Mataya, how are you feeling today, my 10 month old?

M(ataya): Much better mom. I still need my rest, but I am doing much better.

Mom: I am so glad! That was a pretty rough go for you. You slept away almost a whole week of life.

M: Is that why you are interviewing me a day late, mom?

Mom: Well, yes, I guess so. And I really don't have many pictures of you to share either. But, lets do it anyway.
M: Sounds good.

Mom: So, other than being sick, what are you up to these days.

M: Well, I still like to move and check out all of the interesting places in the house. I also really like to try new foods, especially ones that I can fee myself.  And I really enjoy music and I like to dance a little. Going outside is fun too, though it is quite bright and cold sometimes. And I have two teeth now, so that has been a lot of work getting those to come through.

Mom: I know. The warmer weather will be so nice. Are you working on talking at all?

M: A little. I am getting much better at saying "mama."

Mom: And how do you like to move around these days?

M: I still do the army crawl scoot. I can pull myself up onto my knees from that, but I am pretty content to be on my tummy and back yet. I do like to play a bit when you help me to sit up, but mostly I like to scoot around, crawl over anything laying on the floor and explore the house.

Mom: Well, I will let you get back to getting better!

M: Thanks mom!

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.
