Mataya really wanted to have slippers "like Mommy." Joash helped her out with the tape.
Joash did some great colouring during our Good Friday service. He gave it to me afterwards. The sentence he wrote on the bottom says. "This belongs to Mommy. Five (because he is five years old).
We did a little Easter egg hunt Sunday morning before church. I told the kids we had to be already to go to church before we could start. Joash was ready for church by 7:30 am.
We also stopped in at the North Shore Community Centre today for a little free Children's Easter Party. They had a little egg hunt and different crafts and games. It was nice for a free family event so close to our house.
My favorite part of the weekend was how Joash kept reminding his sister that the best part of Easter is that Jesus is Alive!
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.
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.
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.
