16 Months

 Mom: Mataya, I know I am late for this interview.

M(ataya): Yeah, Mom. I have been trying to tell you that we need to do this for days now.

Mom: I know. I guess I was caught up in getting ready for our move and Opa's 60th birthday party and Story Hour at Coffee Break that is sort of slipped my mind. But I am here now, so how are you?

M: I am doing great. I know I have been a little crabby lately, but I am getting 2 more molars, so I just can't help it.
Mom: I know. But you certainly are teething in a funny order. The rest of the teeth should be a breeze now. What have you been doing lately?

M: Well sometime I like to work on my standing and walking. I can do it, but I am not really in a rush to stop crawling yet. And I keep learning lots of new words, but I get a frustrated when you still don't understand me.
 Mom: I am trying my best. But sometimes things just sound all the same. Any new experiences this past month?

M: I have gone for a few tractor rides. It certainly is loud, but I am getting used to it. I am also enjoying our Thursday mornings with just you and me while Joash is at school. But I am happy to see my brother again when we pick him up.

Mom: What things do you like to play with?

M: I like to play with whatever my brother is playing with. And I can drive a tractor really well and make a nice engine noise. I also like books that have extra stuff on them like sounds, things to feel and flaps to open.
Mom: What things do you like to eat?

M: I really like yogurt and applesauce still. Other then that, my tastes change everyday. Some days I will eat bread, the next I will not. Some days I like my veggies, the next day I don't.

Mom: I know. You certainly like to keep me guessing.

M: Isn't that fun, 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.
