Gideon - 15 Months

M(om): Gideon, who are you today?

G(ideon): Can I go outside, Mom? I want to go outside?

M: I know Gideon. Now that you have figured out how to say "outside," you ask to go outside a lot. What do you like to do outside?

G: Everything. Crawl in the sandbox, ride in the tractor, crawl in the grass, sit on the little yellow car, go for rides in the seat on the back of the skelter. Outside is the best.

M: You do enjoy it. What else do you like to do?
 G: I like to look out the window at the cows and "moo" at them. I also like to look at books and I like to eat. A lot.

M: We are certainly amazed at the amount of food you are able to eat and you seem to like everything. You also really like to feed yourself, which makes for some interesting and somewhat messy meal times. But I am so pleased that so far you are willing to try anything.
G: It is all so good. Mom.

M: Any thoughts on walking?

G: It sounds like a good idea, but I am very happy to crawl where I need to go, and I can climb pretty much anything. I can go up and down the stairs just fine, so I don't really know if I need to walk. It seems like a lot of work.

M: Well, I think once you start, you will really enjoy it. I am pretty sure you will be running quite quickly once you start walking. Thanks for talking with me today, Gideon!

G: Can we go outside now?

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.
