Emil, Karisa and Ezekiel Visit

We are enjoying our summer so much, especially since summer means visitors. We were so happy to have Emil, Karisa and Ezekiel visit last week. 

They flew into Charlottetown and captures some great photos of our farm from the plane.

 We got to meet Zeke for the first time. The cousins were not quite sure what to make of each other. Zeke and Gideon are about 7 months apart and pretty much the same size.


The trampoline is so fun!

Walking in downtown Charlottetown.

On the waterfront.
 We really wanted to get some nice pictures of all the kids together. Unfortunately the kids were not in a very cooperative mood at all. So this is what we got.

Oma, Opa and grandkids.

The brothers and their kids.

Gideon and Zeke.
 We also had lots of fun on the beach together on Canada and took in the fireworks in town as well.
 Thanks for coming to visit Emil, Karisa and Zeke. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
