Gideon - 5 Month

M(om): Good morning, my smiley boy! How are you doing now that you are 5 months old?

G(ideon): I am doing great, mom! I just love to see you. That is why I smile so much.

M: I love to see your smiles and hear all the stories you have to tell me. So, what things have you been up to this last month?

G: Well, I have certainly been going more places, we bring Joash to school often and I have gone to a few  craft markets with you. I have even gone swimming a few times.
M: You certainly do seem to like swimming. And I am so thankful that you are so easy going and that you don't seem to mind going all of the places with me. What else have you been up too?

G: Dad let me taste a pear one day. Wow! That was so good. I really didn't want to stop eating it.
M: I know, you were a bit sad when we took it away. I think you will like solid foods when you can start them soon. We have to keep working on your sitting muscles so you can start those in a month or so.

G: That sounds good! I also really like my excersaucer and I have been having fun playing with the toys and watching everyone around me.

M: You do a good job playing and trying to keep up with everyone, but some times, by the end of the day, you are just finished. I hope you have a great day today!

G: Thanks, mom. I hope you do too. Can I have a little snuggle now?

M: Sure you can. I love you buddy!

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.
