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!

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.
