Gideon - 20 Months

M(om): Gideon, you are 20 months old already! Sorry missed it by a day.

G(ideon): That is okay, Mom. We have been having a lot of fun with Christmas and everything.

M: What have you been up to lately.

G: Well, I am getting very good and walking and I like to try to run too.

M: You are getting pretty fast and sure on your feet. And you do like to walk by yourself, which is nice, most of the time. How about talking?
G: I can say more words, like water, turtle, baby, Opa, and cheese.

M: Yes, it seems like we add a new word everyday and it is fun to figure out what is going on in your mind. Thanks for talking to me for a bit.

G: Your welcome, Mom. I love you!

A Few Christmas Things

It is that time of year again where we do a few of those things we only do at Christmas time.  We have made Christmas Cut Out Sugar Cookies. The kids each decorated their own.  The final products.
 We had two Christmas programs last week, which were both very nice. Mataya was an angel in her preschool program.
 Another project we worked on was a nativity seen that we need to press out of a book and then assemble together. It took us a bit of time, but the final product turned out very nice and the kids were quite proud of it.

The Front Tooth

Joash has lost the first of his front top teeth. And we are all very happy about this. It had been hanging on by a thread for weeks, driving Wilbert and I bananas because Joash would barely brush it and he would stop eating sometimes because it would move and feel weird. Finally, yesterday, Joash bit into a sticky candy and out it came!

November Books

November was another good month of reading.

You really should read:
Beartown by Fredrik Backman
Love and Other Consolation Prizes by Jamie Ford
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

The rest were pretty good too. No real duds this month, but my least favorites were Probing, and  Lie to Me.
