15 Months

 Mom: Mataya, here I am for you 15 month interview.

M(ataya): What! Late again, Mom? I don't know about this. And only one picture? You are slacking off a bit mom, aren't you?

Mom: Well, I have posted all of the good pictures of you already in all of the posts about what we have been up to the last little while. And then our computer decided to stop working and we are just now getting back on track. Sometimes life is like that Mataya. But I am here now, so what is new with you?

M: Not too much really. I love to play, crawl around, be outside and eat yummy foods. And I like to talk and try to say new words.

Mom: You certainly are getting more vocal and that is fun. I like to know what you are thinking. What about walking?

M: Walking?!?! Why would I want to do that? I can get just where I want to and do everything I want to by crawling. Walking is so slow. And I fall. Crawling is much better.

Mom: Well, we will keep working on it. Anything else new?

M: Oh I did figure out how to push myself around backwards on my ride on toys. That is a lot of fun. I like to go in a circle on the driveway over and over again.

Mom: It is so much fun watching you do new things. I will let you get back at it Mataya.

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.
