Gideon 13 Months

M(om): Gideon! What are you doing?

G(ideon): Just exploring, Mom. I love to explore everything. I love to climb and see what I can get into.

M: You certainly are good at getting into everything. I never quite know where I am going to find you.  And you seem quite pleased with yourself no matter what you are doing. What else do you like to do?

G: I like to be outside a lot too. There are so many fun things to see and do and feel. It is great!
M: You do love to be outside. And I like to let you just crawl all around in your coveralls. I have to watch to make sure that you don't eat anything you shouldn't, but overall, you are just full of wonder and joy. Any walking or talking?

G: Not too much. I can get anywhere I want to by crawling and climbing, so I am doing well. And talking...well I think that you understand me pretty much all of the time, even if I don't use actual words. But I can sign "more" and "all done" and I say something that sort of sounds like "all done" while I sign. And I of course can say, "dad" and I said "mama just yesterday and you seemed to really like that.

 M: I did. I am looking forward to hearing you call me "mama" a bit more. What else is new?

G: Hmm...I love my dad and I cry when he goes outside without me. I just like to be part of the action, so I cry a bit when I need to go to sleep too. I don't like being alone, Mom. I like to have people around me.

M: I know, buddy. But it will be okay. What do you like to play with?
G: I like things with wheels and things that make noise. I am also starting to like looking at books, especially ones that have things to touch and feel. If I have a book in bed with me, I often look at it when I wake up in the morning.

M: It is pretty sweet Gideon. Thanks for talking with me for a bit.

G: No problem, Mom.

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.
