New to Us

This spring has been filled with lots of "new to us" things on the farm.

1) Zero-turn lawn mower. I am pretty excited about this since I have done the majority of the lawn mowing in the past. However, the guys like this new one so much, I may not have to mow at all this summer!
 2) Tractor. I don't know too much about this tractor and all of its specs or anything. But I do know it has more horsepower, the hydraulics work much better and it is in much better shape that the other tractors we had.

3) Minivan. Our car was going to need some work in order to pass inspection again this year, so we decided it was time to up grade. I love the power sliding doors and the extra space. It was so nice to have when my parents were visiting. We could all hop in and go some where together, rather than trying to follow each other in town. It was great!

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.
