Gideon - 8 Months

M(om): Gideon, Merry Christmas! And now is it Boxing Day and you know what else? You are 8 months old!

G(ideon): That is great! And Christmas was so much fun.

M: And there is more to come. So what have you been up to lately?
G: I have really been exploring the world around me. I love to be on my belly and scoot all over. If anything is on the floor, I will get it.

M: You certainly are on the move.

G: I also like to play drums on anything. And I notice that different things make different sounds. Like the drawer under the oven make a different sound than the cupboard next to it.
M: Anything else new?

G: I can sit up all on my own now. That is really helpful for playing the drums. I also like to try new foods. Cereal and applesauce or still my favorite, though. I do like to try and feed myself, which is sometimes more successful than others.

M: It has been fun to see you try all these new things. And it is so nice that you can sit up on your own and that you are also able to go from sitting to you belly without too much trouble. I am also glad that you are sleeping better again at night these days. That makes for a happy mama!

G: And I think it makes me a happier Gideon!

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.

What's Going On?

So I have been really bad at blogging lately. Anyway, here are some highlights from the last little bit.




And the biggest news is that Joash's other front tooth fell out. He was pretty excited about this and now has a pretty big hole in his mouth.
