19 Months

Mom: Mataya, my big girl. You are 19 months today!

M(ataya): Really? I was too busy to notice.

Mom: Yes, it is true. What things are you busy with?

M: Well, I really like all kinds of things. I like to colour, uses stickers, look at books and hold my babies and monkeys.
Mom: What books are your favorite?

M: I really like the tractor magazines with combines and cows in them. And I like the books that have pictures of monkeys, ducks or pigs in them. I am very good at those animal noises.

Mom: Yes, you are.  What others things do you like to do?
 M: I like to dance and move. I also like to go outside, especially to the barn and tractors. And I like to run errands with you, Mom, while Joash is in school. I really like to look in your purse for snacks.

Mom: I know. Good thing I always have a little something for you. What do you like to eat?

M: My food preferences haven't changed much in the last while, but I don't really know why I have to eat supper. I think I eat enough at lunch to last the rest of the day.

Mom: Well, I don't know about that. You used to really like vegetables, so maybe someday they will grow on you again.
Thanks for talking with me.

M: You're 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.
