Blizzard Recap

I feel like the pictures all are starting to look the same now. It is just snow, snow and more snow. And even more coming tomorrow. But we are still having fun in it afterwards. My parents are coming to visit in May and they keep asking if the snow will be gone by then. And the answer is that I really don't know. This is a lot of snow.
Best part about this last snow storm? Wilbert's sister is staying with us for part of her March Break from University. We love having her around!
The snowplow! I see the snowplow! This was last night around 6:30.

Somewhere in here is the entrance to Joash's cave.

It is really dark in the barn right now.

This one shows you how high some of the drifts are

Can you find our round bales? It is getting pretty difficult for Wilbert to find and then get the feed out of all of the snow.
So feels the same. We dug out the toy room window today. The mountain outside of the kitchen gets taller and taller. But overall, we are doing well. The milk truck made it this morning around 6am. We have enough feed for the cows and more pig feed arrived today. We have lots of food in the house for all of the humans. So we are all right to hunker down for at least another 20cm (8") and 50-70kph winds tomorrow. Spring will come 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.
