Gideon - 16 Months

 M(om): Hey Gideon! How are you doing, big guy?

G(ideon): Oh pretty good mom. I having lots of fun with this whole standing thing. It has been pretty exciting to figure out how to do it!

M: We have been pleased to see you doing it. Any thoughts on walking yet?

G: Nah...why walk when I can crawl, climb and be carried around any where I want to go?
M: That is true. I have a feeling that one of these days you are just going to do it and then there will be no looking back. And I will probably be chasing you all over the place. What else it new?

G: I have some new teeth. My first two molars came in last week.

M: I know! Anything else?
G: I really like to play with truck and tractors now. I like to drive them around in the kitchen and living room. Joash even shared some of the tractors he doesn't play with as much anymore, so I have lots of new ones to try out.

M: It has been so neat to see you crawling along pushing the different vehicles around. You certainly are getting interested in those. What else have you learned?

G: I can climb on to the couch, kitchen table and a closed toilet all by myself. I can so many things when I am up high.

M: Including almost falling and almost giving your mom a heart attack. You are pretty daring. You also think that you can sit on a kitchen stool by the island all by yourself, but I don't know that you are quite ready for that, either.

G: But it is so fun. I feel like I am big like Joash and Mataya.

M: You are a big boy, but I also want you to be safe. Soon enough you will be able to do it by yourself. I love you Gideon!

G: I love you too, 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.
