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.

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.
