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!

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

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.
