Gideon - 6 Months

 G(ideon): Hey Mom, where is everyone?

M(om): Well, Daddy is in barn and Joash and Mataya are on a fun outing with Grandma and Grandpa.  And you turned 6 months old earlier this week.

G:I know. I feel like a lot has happened this month.

M: I think you are right. You have done a lot things this month. What has been the best thing?

G: Well, I think the most fun thing has been trying new foods. I love eating in my chair like a big boy.

M: What foods have you tried?
G: I like rice and oat cereal and so far I have had carrots, sweet potatoes, bananas, peaches and pears. I have tried some bread and Mum-mums as well. It is all really good!

M: You are very excited to eat most of the time and that is great. And I think you must be growing because you have been wanting to see me again during the night.

G: I just love you so much, mom, and I want to see you.

M: What else have you been doing that is new?
G: I can move around too! I like to be on my tummy and pull myself around on the floor. I like my toys and I just want to get them, but they keep moving away from me as soon as I touch them.

M: It is so great to see you move around and starting to do what you would like to do. You are doing great Gideon. But, I think it is time for your nap. I hope you have a good one.

G: Thanks, Mom! I love you.



In the picture above, Gideon started out on the rug on his tummy. He often surprises me with where he ends up.

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.

Summer Vacation 2017

This was supposed to be the first of probably a few post about our wonderful family vacation in Michigan with my parents and sisters.

Instead it is a post about our vacation, on PEI. The kids at home with Oma, Opa, Tante Reina and Wilbert. Wilbert home with the kids or visiting me...at the hospital.

At 4 am on the morning of July 15th, instead of going to the airport to fly to Michigan with the kids, Wilbert and I drove to the hospital where I was soon admitted and fast tracked to have my gall bladder removed.

A little bit of background. I have been struggling for a while with random bouts of pain in my abdomen and back. Back in October of 2016, I did go the ER with this pain. At that time, the doctor determined I was having esophageal spasms, a surprisingly common thing for a woman who had a baby 5 or 6 month ago. After my time in the ER, I did not have any further issues until April of this year.

In April, I had 10 of these episodes in 20 days. Most often they would last for 30 minu…
