Gideon - 1 Year

 M(om): Gideon! Happy 1st Birthday! You are one year old today! Can you believe it?

G(ideon): I like the decorations and that you woke me up with singing this morning. And thanks for my new car seat. I like having more room in the van and the box is super fun too!

M: What have you been up too this month?

G: I have been growing teeth. Lots of teeth. How many do I have now, Mom?

M: You have 4 that are all the way through, and two more are on the way.  What else it new?

G: I love to crawl around and climb in and over things. There are so many different places to explore.

M: You have certainly found yourself in some interesting places. What things do you like to eat, lately?
G: I love to eat anything. I really like carrots, roasted potatoes, any fruit and yogurt, anything really. I just like to eat. Especially when I  can feed myself. Dad has also introduced me to some sweet things like yummy squares which are so good.

M: I know you really like those things. You are such a great eater right now and we are always impressed with how much you can eat. Any words?
G: Not really. You seem to know what I want most of the time. I am good at saying "dad" and I certainly know what you are saying lots of the time. I have a little sound I make for tractor, and I certainly jabber a lot. I am sure more words will come together soon.

M: I know they will. Thanks for talking to me today on your birthday. We have more birthday celebrations to come!

G: All right!

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.
