21 Months

Mom: Mataya, you are 21 months old!

M(ataya): I know! And I love being a big girl.

Mom: What are some of the big girl things you are doing?

M: Well, I like to put on shoes and pick out my own clothes. I also really like to have bow in my hair. I like to look at books and "read" the stories. I also really like to sing sons like "Twinkle Twinkle Little Start" and "Jesus Loves Me."

Mom: What are your other favorite things to do?
 M: I love to go outside. I want to go outside all of the time and I DO NOT want to come back in. I love to roll in the snow, pick up snow chunks, try to crawl up hills and then slide down on my bottom. I also really like to go to the barn with Daddy and give the cows grain. I go and get my boots to let you know that I want to go outside.

Mom: I am happy that you like to be outside, but sometimes it is difficult when it is so cold. Summer will be nice and I think we will spend a lot of time outside. How is the talking going?
M: I have a lot to say and I like it so much when you can understand what I am saying. And I like to count as well.

Mom: What do you like to eat?

M: I love yogurt and cheese. I also really like apples, peaches and bananas. Supper is not my favorite meal at all, but I would really like to have some dessert.

Mom: I know you would like dessert, but you really need to eat your supper first. Well, I better let you take a nap so you have energy to back outside later.

M: Okay, 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.
