Gideon - 10 months

 M(om): Gideon. What are you getting into now?

G(ideon): What? You mean I shouldn't eat this dirt? But I can reach it? Doesn't that mean I can have it?

M: Even though you think that is true, it is not really the case. We can't really take our eyes off of you now because you are always into something.
G: There is so much to explore in the world, Mom.

M: I know. What else are you up too?

G: Well, I love to stand and I am starting to cruise around the window sills. It is fun to look outside and see everything that is going on. I am also getting really fast at crawling. I like to look at books and play with toys that make noise. I am starting to drive cars around too and that is really fun.

M: It is fun to see you figuring things about this world. Any new foods?

G: I love to eat and try new things. I really like yogurt, peaches, pears and bread. And cheese is pretty good, too. And blueberries are very yummy, but I need to test them all to make sure they are not too squishy.
M: You do love to eat and that is so nice. How about sleep?

G: I like to sleep at night. Sometime I have a hard time taking a nap, but then I get really tired later in the day. I just don't like to miss out on the action. I like to be by people.

M: And we like to have you around, 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.
