18 Months

Mom: Mataya, can you believe it?

M(ataya): Believe what Mom?

Mom: You are 18 months old already! 1 1/2 years old! What a big girl you are!

M: Thanks Mom! I like being a big girl. I like it when you let me sit next to you on the couch or put me in a chair by myself. I like that I can run around and get into pretty much anything I want to

Mom: It is fun to see all of the different things you do everyday. What else do you like to do?
M: I like to be by you and brother. I like to say new words, especially ones that make you laugh. I enjoy looking at books and I like to play with brother's sticker books and peel the stickers off. I wish that brother would share his tractors more with me, but most of the time he is nice to me. I also like to look animals, but I don't like it when the cats get too close. And I can make a really nice cow sound. Would you like to here it?

Mom: In a little bit. What about eating?

M: I love to eat breakfast and lunch. Yogurt is still my favorite thing, though peaches, corn and peas follow close behind. I like to have toast with peanut butter for lunch.

Mom: And sleeping?

M: Sleeping is great. I love my bed, especially when it has a book and my baby in it.

Mom: What are some words you can say?

M: Mama, Dada, brother, opa, cow, bowl, apple, cat, cheese, pretty, car, tractor, pig, outside, putty (as in Silly Putty) and probably a lot more that I can't remember now.

Mom: Well, I can't believe how big you are getting. An I love to see you smile.

M: Thanks mom! I love you!

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.
