Joash's Birthday Celebrations

Well, we have had quite the weekend celebrating with this four year old. In the morning, there were lots of decorations up.
 We had cake at coffee time. Joash had requested a farm cake with a barn, two tractors and a farmer. I was pretty pleased to find this nice farm candles at the Bulk Barn.
 When then did a little family outing to the corn maze. It was a cool, drizzly day, so we had the whole place to ourselves.
I am pretty sure Joash would have been just as please to play in the giant sandbox all day, even with the rain.

 Mataya had fun too.
 Then we came back home for presents. Joash opened his gifts from Mom and Dad, Mataya, Grandma and Grandpa and Oom Emil and Tante Karisa. He has been playing with them all non-stop.
 Oma and Opa came over Sunday for lunch, more cake and of course they had a few gifts too.
And today there were a few more presents in the mail from Tante Reina, Aunt Joy and Uncle Chad, and Aunt Dawn and Uncle Nick. Joash has had a great birthday!

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.
