Things Joash Says

Oh to be 4. Some of the things Joash says and does really make us laugh. Here is a little smattering from the last few weeks.

Joash has suddenly decided that "working" at the desk in his room is really cool. Now when he wakes up in the morning, he looks out the window and then sits at his desk and draws me a picture. Yesterday he said,"I maybe a little late for school tomorrow, since I have to draw you a picture when I wake up in the morning."

One day Wilbert let Joash sit on his lap in the tractor and help move the loader and steer. He then declared, "I am all growed up to be a man. I am great helper now for Daddy!"

The other day I was getting after Joash for climbing on top of the kitchen table. 

"When can I climb up on a table, Mom?"
"When you have money and buy your own table." 
"But that won't work. There isn't any room for another table."
"Well, you will have your own table in your own house someday."
"But I want to live with you forever, Mom."

Meet Messy and Dessy Chessy, Joash's imaginary spider friends that he makes with his hands. They have been around for quite sometime. Dessy Chessy was named Kate at first, then Messy Westy. According to Joash, when it is Dessy Chessy birthday, this spider gets a new name. So I asked when Messy is getting a new name. "Well, Messy doesn't know you can change your name on your birthday."

And today he informed us that tomorrow or maybe Monday is Dessy Chessy's birthday and he will be getting a new name. Joash even went up to his room to consult his calender about what day really is Dessy Chessy's birthday.

He cracks me up

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.
