Beach Time!

This has got to be just about one of the best times of the summer - beach time! While we have some long and crazy winters, these are the days that totally make it worth it. Today was our second visit to the beach. The kids love it. Joash cried when it was time to leave after our first visit. Today went much better because now he knows we will come back. Today was a bit cooler, but not cold by any means. You just didn't want to venture very far into the water. 

We live about 15 minutes from the nearest beach. It is a part of the PEI National Park, so we buy our early bird beach pass and go as often as we like. So far, we have gone after the kids afternoon naps. So we are able to stay for about two hours, which seems just about right.

Joash likes to dig holes:
 Mataya has been testing out the sand in many different ways, including eating it.
 And the best part is that there is usually at least one other person who also wants to go to the beach. We love having all of these aunt and uncles around!

They are predicting rain for the next two days, but the weekend looks awesome, so I am sure we will have more time at the beach soon!

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.
