Gideon - 6 Months

 G(ideon): Hey Mom, where is everyone?

M(om): Well, Daddy is in barn and Joash and Mataya are on a fun outing with Grandma and Grandpa.  And you turned 6 months old earlier this week.

G:I know. I feel like a lot has happened this month.

M: I think you are right. You have done a lot things this month. What has been the best thing?

G: Well, I think the most fun thing has been trying new foods. I love eating in my chair like a big boy.

M: What foods have you tried?
G: I like rice and oat cereal and so far I have had carrots, sweet potatoes, bananas, peaches and pears. I have tried some bread and Mum-mums as well. It is all really good!

M: You are very excited to eat most of the time and that is great. And I think you must be growing because you have been wanting to see me again during the night.

G: I just love you so much, mom, and I want to see you.

M: What else have you been doing that is new?
G: I can move around too! I like to be on my tummy and pull myself around on the floor. I like my toys and I just want to get them, but they keep moving away from me as soon as I touch them.

M: It is so great to see you move around and starting to do what you would like to do. You are doing great Gideon. But, I think it is time for your nap. I hope you have a good one.

G: Thanks, Mom! I love you.



In the picture above, Gideon started out on the rug on his tummy. He often surprises me with where he ends up.

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.
