And Then There was Summer

We seemed to have skipped right over spring and come to summer full on. And we love it! The next few days are supposed to be a bit more "spring-like," but we have been outside as much as we can enjoying these summer like days.

The kids have even tried out the pool that Mataya got for her birthday.
Overall, it was a winner.

And the garden is starting to come up so that is really fun. Everything is making an appearance and I am really looking forward to harvest time! I haven't put my tomato plants in the ground yet, but they are growing nicely in their pots.

In other news, we were at a park yesterday and Joash went down the slides all by himself! Big step for my cautious little boy. And I think he might have pretty much given up on the whole nap thing. He is down in his room now for some quite time so we will see if a nap takes place. But, since the silage season will be upon us soon, I know that he will be thrilled to spend the afternoons in the tractor.

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.
