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!

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.
