Gideon - 2 Months

M(om): Hey Gideon! You are 2 months old already. Time is going to fast!

G(ideon):  Really, mom? I had know idea. Life has been pretty great.

M: Well, you have been a pretty great, baby Gideon. I am so thankful for you. What have you been up to this last month?
G: Well, I think I have been growing a lot.  You or Dad seem to tell me that just about every day. And Joash keeps saying that my ears are getting bigger.

M: You certainly are growing. Some of your 3 month clothing is almost too small already. Have you learned to do anything this new this month?

G: I am starting to smile and coo, which I have found out that you and dad really like it when I do that. And I like to look at my brother and sister and some of the toys that are hanging on the activity mat.

M: We do love to see that smile. What else happened this month?
G: I got to meet my grandpa and grandma from Michigan. And I was baptized. There was  a lot to see in church.

M: We enjoyed seeing how you were just looking around at everything and being so calm through it all. How are eating a sleeping going?

G: I love to eat. I could eat all day. Can I do that someday, mom?
Father's Day 2016
M: No, because you also like to sleep, right?

G: Yes, I do like to sleep. I like my naps and will almost always fall asleep if someone is holding me, especially if I am swaddled. And I like to sleep at night, but I hope you don't mind that I check just once to make sure you aren't too far away. mom.

M: I don't mind one bit. Now if we could only get your sister to sleep that well at night...

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.
