And Today....

Go to my blog post from one month ago today and hit repeat.

We had another blizzard yesterday and the wind has yet to die down, so we have yet to see a plow. Wilbert is working hard to blow the snow to get the bales and silage he needs to feed the cows. We are not as desperate for the milk truck or feed to come this time around, so that is nice. It is March Break this week (known as Spring Break in other parts of North America, but it never indicates spring the maritimes), so no one has school anyway.) That is good because this looks like it will be another long clean up. Especially since there is more snow in the forecast for Wednesday.

This time around it sound like we got about 50 cm (about 1' 7"). Winds are pretty strong, but not as bad as the storm a month ago. Funny how this winter puts things in perspective. They are saying we have broken the record for total winter snowfall now. The thing that I think is so different about this winter is that normally the snow melts a bit during the warm days that come along. This winter has been cold so pretty much all of the snow we have gotten this winter is still here.

Once the wind dies down, I will get out and take some pictures again.

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.
