Happy Birthday Mataya!

Our sweet Mataya turned 1 on Saturday! Unfortunately she wasn't feeling the greatest this weekend, so birthday celebrations were less than enjoyable. But, we still had a nice time. 

One moment of smiles for her birthday.
 Mataya was spoiled by all of her family. She is now has a great summer wardrobe and new toys to play with as well. Joash has enjoyed most of these toys more than Mataya so far, so we will have to keep working on sharing.

And since Mataya was not feeling all that great, the cake time was not very exciting at all.  She poked it and looked at it and licked a bit of frosting off of her fingers. But, she was not really impressed.

I made her a butterfly cake. It turned out pretty well, but I had some issues frosting it. The frosting wouldn't stick where I put it, so it became full of crumbs. And my icing colors had really gelled up or something, so they didn't give off as much colour as I wanted. But overall, I think it turned out pretty cute. 
Joash insisted that we put sprinkles on Mataya's cake. So, he helped with those.

It was a nice birthday, but hopefully the next one will be even better.

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.
