17 Months

Mom: Mataya, I can't believe it, but you are 17 months old already!

M(ataya): I know mom, but that happened a few days ago. You are a little late.

Mom: I know. But we just moved, and then you were sick and then we had visitors. But I am ready to talk to you now. What is new?
 M: Well, I finally got the hang of this walking thing. And you were right, Mom. It is so much better. And faster. I like it when you chase me around. And I have enjoyed moving to our new house. I love seeing everything there is to see out of the windows.

Mom: It is nice to be here. And I too and glad you are walking. You certainly got good at it quite quickly. And you are growing so much. I think it is especially neat to see how much your hair has grown.

M: I am getting bigger, but I am still not as big as I would like to be. I can't climb up on top of everything that I would like too.


Mom: And that is okay with me, Mataya, You get into enough stuff as it is. You are much more brave than you brother is. And now that you can walk, you can get into a lot more things. I am certainly thankful for things like child proof locks for cupboards.

M: I know. I checked  all of the cupboards in the kitchen, and I couldn't get into a single one! But, I still could get in the tupperware drawer, so I will just have to have fun in there instead.

Mom: I think you will be able to find fun things to get into anywhere you are Mataya. Thanks for talking with me!

M: Your'e welcome, Mom!

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

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.
