Gideon - 9 Months

 M(om): Hello, Gideon! You are 9 months old today! As Dad reminded us at coffee time, that means you have been out in the world for the same amount of time you were inside of me.

G(ideon): Really? It feels like I have been around a lot longer than that.

M: For me, too. What has been happening lately?
G: Well, lots things I guess. I have been growing a lot. At least that is what everyone keeps telling me. And I have been talking a lot. I can say "Da da" pretty well, which seems to make Dad very happy. I like to play lots of different toys, especially ones that make sounds and play music. They are just so interesting!

M: Have you learned anything else new lately?

G: I can stand up! I think it is so much fun to pull myself up to stand by things. And I am getting better at getting down now, so I think that you like it more now too.

M: I must say your surprised me when you first stood up by things. What are you eating these days?
 G: Food is so yummy! I will eat pretty much anything you give me. I do like to try and feed myself, but it also really nice when you feed me. I really like puffs, bananas, pears, peaches. Really, there isn't any food that I don't like. One time I even stole Dad's cookie from him. That was really tasty. Can I have another one?

M: Not right now. How is sleeping going?

G: I don't mind sleeping. I like to have a morning nap around 9 and I will sleep for 1 hour or so. And I like my afternoon nap around 1 or 1:30 and I will sleep for close to 2 hours then. And I am ready for bed around 7 and I usually sleep until 7 in the morning. But, I don't really like to sleep in places other than my own bed.

M: I am glad you sleep so well. You are such a joy to have around, Gideon. Who do you like to be around the most?

G: Well, I certainly do love you, Mom. But I get very excited when I hear my Dad voice and my brother, Joash. I do love to see them each day.

M: And we all love to have you around, too.

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.
