Joash is 4 1/2!

Joash 4 1/2 today! And while he is your typical preschooler, he certainly is a joy! He loves school. He loves going outside and is spending more and more time in the barn with Wilbert. He actually does a few helpful things around the barn too, so that is nice for Wilbert. He still really enjoys playing with his farm stuff and reading books.

Here he is ready for crazy hair day at school on Thursday. He thought he looked like a cactus.
 His imagination has really taken off. He has lots of imagination his play. He is also starting to really enjoy making and creating things, which is fun for this crafty mom. Here is his latest creation:
We have named him Stanley S. Square. Joash gathered all the supplies he needed and planned it all out. He asked me to cut out the feet, help put the eyes on and help tape time together. But the idea and the face are all Joash.

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.
