13 Months

Mom: Mataya, can you sit still for a minute so I can ask you a few questions?

M(ataya): I don't know, Mom. There is so much to see and  do.

Mom: Well, you certainly have learned many new things this month. What are some of those new things that you can do?
M: Well, I love to crawl all over. I can go up and down stairs. I like to stand by things and I can cruise around the furniture a bit. I love to move and get into things.

Mom: I know! I have to keep a good eye on you. What things do you like a play with?

M: My brother's tractors are so much fun, but he gets mad at me when I play with them. I also like to look at
books and play with books and toys that make noise.

Mom: What about eating? What things do you like to eat?

M: Food is really good, Mom. I am not so sure about my veggies, but I like them with applesauce. My latest word is "banana" because that is a food I really enjoy.

Mom: Okay, I won't keep you any longer. Thanks for letting me know what is going on in your life!

Mataya's 5th Birthday!

We had a great time celebrating Mataya's birthday yesterday. 
It took her a bit to decide what she wanted on her cake. First is was a bunny, then a flower and then she finally settled on a bunny with some flowers by it.
 She declared it perfect, so that was great!

Here she is with a few of her gifts. A few requests were her own flashlight (not pictured), bunny slippers, activity books with stickers and the biggest one was "slide on shoes."
After cake and presents Mataya said with pure joy, "This was the best birthday ever!"

A Visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke

A few weeks ago we had a great visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke. There was lots of cousin love...  Oom Emil love....
 And Oom Wilbert and tractor magazine love...
 There were lots of walks with Oma...
 And trips to the beach...
 They were here over Canada, so there was the annual Church Picnic, of course...

 It was a cool day, but no rain.
 But yes, I did wear my sweater on the beach.
 We also took a family morning and visited The Butterfly House
 It was lovely and peaceful and most of the family enjoyed it. Zeke was a little nervous the whole time, but over all did well. We also had a picnic lunch and saw the Young Company Show at the Confederation Center.
We had a great time and were sad to see them go. Hopefully the time will just fly by until our next visit.

What's Going On?

So I have been really bad at blogging lately. Anyway, here are some highlights from the last little bit.

And the biggest news is that Joash's other front tooth fell out. He was pretty excited about this and now has a pretty big hole in his mouth.
