Joash Lately

Joash has been a busy boy lately. In the morning, he likes to eat breakfast, play a bit, then get ready for the day, do a "summer school page" (a page out of a Pre-K workbook we have) and then he heads out to the barn to help Daddy. And he is outside for a large chunk of the day. Here are some of the other things he has been up too.

A family portrait by Joash. I drew circle to get him started and I helped with the hair and labeled of course. Bur the rest is all him.

Opa's helper.

Joash continues to create and be very inventive. Here he is using his "welding helmet."

After going to the tractor pull, Joash had his own tractor pull in the house. Here he is with his tractor hooked up to the sled. He is wearing his "helmet" and holding the "rule book."

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.
