1 Month

M(om): Why hello, Gideon! Your are one month old!

G(ideon): Really? I have been around for a long time!

M: We are certainly enjoying having your in our family. What do you think about life so far?

G: It seems pretty good. I like look all around and I am exploring how my voice works. But most of the time I like to eat and then take a good rest. Growing is hard work.

M: I know. I am very thankful that you are such a good sleeper. That really helps mom out. What else have you been up too?
G: I have been meeting different family members and friends. I have also been tagging along to many different places with you mom. Most of the time I really like riding in the car.

M: You are pretty easy to take places, so it is no problem to take you along. Have you done anything else interesting?
G: I went outside the other day and Joash and Mataya showed me everything on the farm. I even went to see the cows. They are really big.

M: I am so glad the weather is getting nice so it is easy to take you outside. The most difficult part is making sure the bugs don't get you. Thanks for talking to me, Gideon.

G: No problem, Mom. I like to be with you.

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.
