Gideon - 17 Months

M(om): Gideon! What have you been up to this last month?

G(ideon): Lots of first things, Mom. My first time on a plane. My first time out of Canada. My first time in a hotel. My first steps, which happened in that hotel. Lots of firsts.

M: Yes, we know you can walk and you are doing it a little bit more. When do you think you will start walking all of the time?

G: I don't know. Crawling and climbing get me where I want to be so much faster. I don't know if it is worth the effort yet. 
 M: Well, I am pretty sure some day soon you will change your mind. What else is new?

G: Teeth! I have been getting lots of teeth lately.

M: Yes, you have. I will be glad when these come in. You have your top molars now and the bottom ones are starting to come through. And I think there are some more teeth making there way through on the bottom as well.

G: It does make me a bit grumpy sometime, though.

M: Yeah, but hopefully they will be through soon. You got a nice haircut today.

G: You think I look handsome, Mom?

M: You know it, Gideon! I love you, my big guy.

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.
