20 Months

Mom: Mataya, you are 20 months old today!

M(ataya): Really? I didn't know that.

Mom: It is true. It is so amazing to see what a big girl you are becoming.

M: Thanks mom! I do like all of the different things around me that I get to see and do. And I really like to tell you all about them.

Mom: I know. I just wish I could understand you a bit better so I knew everything you were telling me. You certainly sound like everything you are saying is really important.
M: Well, there are so many things that I like to do and see. I love to be outside, even in the snow. Though I wish I could just play in it with my bare hands all of the time. I like to read books by myself. I like to look at animals from a distance. But when they get too close, that is a little scary. And I like to dance and sing and watch Curious Geroge and Pancake Manor on the computer. And I really like to race with Dad.
Mom: Your Dad and I talk a lot about how you are a really funny girl already. You do a lot of little goofy things that make us all laugh. Anything else new?

M: I am getting really good at naming things, including people from my family and myself.
Mom: It is really fun looking at pictures with you and seeing whom you can name. Though, you do think that a lot of people look like Oom Jander.

M: Well I do love my family and getting "(s)nuggles." Can I have a "nuggle" now?

Mom: Sure. I love you, Mataya.

M: I love you too, 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.
