The Move

As I have eluded to in the last few posts, my family has made a big move...across the road. We swapped houses with my husband's parents, so we now live in the farm house. It is lovely to be here on the farm place.

The move went really well. It was a gradual move, but that was good for everyone. The week prior to the actual move date, I began to haul boxes over and putting them in the apartment portion of the house. That's right. This is a house with a small apartment attached to it. It even has bunk beds! So that means all of our friends in other parts of the world can visit PEI and have a free place to stay. Even if you have kids!

Anyway, we moved on a Monday. We rented a U-Haul truck for each house, packed them up and swapped house. Monday we were able, with the help of some wonderful friends, get all of the bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens moved. Over the rest of the week, the rest of the things were moved to the new homes.

I will do a little house tour soon. I have been busy this week finishing up unpacking and cleaning things up. I am almost finished and have a bit of extra motivation as our first guests arrive on Saturday!

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.
