Playing, Drawing and Awakening

We are getting back to the normal things around here after the holidays. While there is not too much snow on the ground right now (though more is coming tomorrow), the kids have been enjoying playing in the snow.
The Christmas tree makes a great car.
 Joash was very eager to get back to school after having been away from school for a few weeks. Here is a picture of a cow he drew on his first day back.
 His teachers also asked him to draw a pictures of something God will help him do this year. Here is what he drew and what he tried to write was "me reading," meaning God will help him to learn how to read.
And Mataya has had a few interesting morning awakenings lately. This morning when I got her up, I realized she had a bloody nose during the night. That is a scary thing to see, but thankfully it must have just happened, so it was well contained to one area and washed out of her sheets very easily.

Another morning a few weeks back, I thought the same thing had happened when I got Mataya up in the morning. But upon closer inspection I figured out that it was not blood, but Silly Putty. Both Joash and Mataya got Silly Putty for Christmas. Mataya also got a little pouch. I didn't check what was in the pouch when I put her in bed and I guess her Silly Putty was in there. And it was everywhere in her bed. On her sheets, blankets, pillow, pjs, her stuffed pig and in her hair. It was a much longer clean up that day and we still see remnants of the silly putty in different places.

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.
