14 Months

Mom: Hi Mataya! It is about time we get that 14 month interview done, don't you think?

M(ataya): Yeah, Mom. Why are you so late?j

Mom: Well, we were gone on vacation when you turned 14 months and then I was super busy with VBS. Now that VBS is over it is time get caught up again on the blog.
M: Okay. I guess those are good reasons. I am growing so much lately. I love to stand!

Mom: I know you like to stand. Do you think you will walk soon?

M: I don't know Mom. I can do pretty anything I would like by crawling. I think this whole walking thing may be a bit over rated.
 Mom: We will see. I think you will surprise yourself one of these days and take off walking. What about talking?

M: It is so fun to talk when you understand what I am saying. I now say and wave "bye." and I can sign "please."

Mom: It is so nice talking to you and helping you when I know exactly what you want. What other things do you like?
M: I really like to go outside and love exploring the world. I don't mind crawling in the grass or dirt. And I don't mind getting dirty at all. I am pretty messy eater and in this picture you can see what I look like after an early morning crawl through the yard.

Mom: Well you and your clothes are washable and you have so much fun that I don't mind it too much. I am so thankful that you are my healthy, happy little girl. I love you Mataya!

M: I love you too, Mom.

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.
