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!

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.
