23 Months

Mom: Mataya, can you believe you are almost 2?

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

Mom: What have you been up too?

M: Well, I guess we are getting ready for summer. I do like the snow, but I think I will like summer too. But, right now, the mud is tough. I keep getting stuck.

Mom: I know Mataya. The mud is pretty deep. What else do you like to do?
 M: I like to sing. Now my favourite songs are "ABC" and "Jesus Loves Me." I really like it when you read books with me. I like to colour and I like to play with my baby dolls. I especially like to make the little on drive Joash's big tractor.

Mom: Any new things you have done this month?

She really is stuck in the mud here.
 M: We went swimming yesterday and that was really fun. I even went down the water slide with Daddy and that was really fun. I also had fun walking around with you in the mud and seeing the new plants coming up for spring.

Mom: Anything else new?

M: I have a new tooth. And I am afraid of bugs. Especially pill bugs.
Mom: Why are you afraid of them?

M: They have tweezers!

Mom: I think you are much bigger than any bugs. So you really don't need to be afraid of them. Well, the next time we do this, you will be 2!

M: That is so exciting!

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.
