Gideon - 4 Months

M(om): Gideon? Do you have a smile for Mom?

G(ideon): Oh Mom, you always ask me that question. Here. A quick smile for you. Is that enough?

M: I will take whatever I can get Gideon. And I certainly love to hear that belly laugh.

G: Well, you are funny, mom. Much more funny then Dad. Joash is pretty funny too.

M: What have you been up to this month, Gideon?

G: Well, I have master rolling, so I don't need to do it much anymore. Just in bed because it is so much more comfortable to sleep on my belly.
 I also went to Old Home Week and took a trip to Halifax. I am now a dual citizen of Canada and the  United States. It was a nice trip, but I didn't like to be in car seat by the end of the day.

M: It was a long day, but you did so well. What other things do you like to do?

G: I like to go outside. I also like to talk to my brother and sister. And I like taking a bath. I love to kick my legs and splash. And I like to take naps. I am a much happier kid when I have my naps.

M: I know. I try very hard to make sure you get your naps on time. I am so thankful that you are a very content baby.
G: I do like to be in the Ergo by you Mom. It is so nice to be close to you.

M: I like it too and it makes the end of the day go well. I guess it is getting time for a nap again, isn't it?

G: Yes, I guess so. See you later, Mom.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

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.
