Happy Mother's Day!

So happy that I get to be a mom to these two kids. Mother's Day was a lot of this year because Joash sort of got the idea about what it was for. He and Wilbert did a little shopping for me on Saturday and wrapped the presents before nap time. When I got Joash up from his nap, he was making a quiet sign. I asked him what he was doing. He said, "Don't say anything." "About what?" I asked. "Mother's Day, " he responded then proceeded to tell me that my present were hidden in his closest.

Then on Sunday, we had the radio on in the morning and they mentioned that it was Mother's Day. Joash asked if it was and when I said yes, he said, "Mommy, I love you very much and we got you some gloves, a shovel and a fork that you could use to pick up spaghetti."

We waited to open the presents until after church and I was presented with a new pair of gardening gloves, a small gardening shovel and a small cultivator rake. It was just what I needed and we have been busy in the flower beds this week. The vegetable garden got a nice layer of manure on it today and then once it is tilled again, we will start planting.

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.
