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...

Planning for 2018

So about this time of the year last year, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and finally came to the conclusion that I was not keeping very good track of things and my life. So, I bought and planner and I love it. But, in my search for a planner, I kept thinking there has to be something that can not only help me plan well, but also help and encourage me spiritually. Then, last year Jamie Ivey highlighted Anchored Press in her 2016 Gift Giving Guide. And I knew I was going to be getting a planner from Anchored Press for 2018.
And it has arrived! And I love it!


I am so excited to start using this planner in the new year. I hope that it will help encourage me in all areas of my life.

Mataya's 5th Birthday!

We had a great time celebrating Mataya's birthday yesterday. 
It took her a bit to decide what she wanted on her cake. First is was a bunny, then a flower and then she finally settled on a bunny with some flowers by it.
 She declared it perfect, so that was great!


Here she is with a few of her gifts. A few requests were her own flashlight (not pictured), bunny slippers, activity books with stickers and the biggest one was "slide on shoes."
After cake and presents Mataya said with pure joy, "This was the best birthday ever!"

A Visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke

A few weeks ago we had a great visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke. There was lots of cousin love...  Oom Emil love....
 And Oom Wilbert and tractor magazine love...
 There were lots of walks with Oma...
 And trips to the beach...
 They were here over Canada, so there was the annual Church Picnic, of course...

 It was a cool day, but no rain.
 But yes, I did wear my sweater on the beach.
 We also took a family morning and visited The Butterfly House
 It was lovely and peaceful and most of the family enjoyed it. Zeke was a little nervous the whole time, but over all did well. We also had a picnic lunch and saw the Young Company Show at the Confederation Center.
We had a great time and were sad to see them go. Hopefully the time will just fly by until our next visit.
