May Books

Most of my April books were reviews, that were already posted on the blog, so this a recap of what else I read in April and the books I read in May. It was a good month of reading.

A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller - A follow up to Blue Like Jazz. Great bits of truth with interesting stories in between. Thought provoking and challenging.

The Best Yes by Lysa TerKeurst - A good book for thinking about why you do the things you do and making sure that the "yes" you give is the best one it can be.

Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst - The real purpose of who we are comes from God, not others. But that still doesn't make it any easier to face rejection. But the truth is we are always loved by God.

Made to Crave by Lysa TerKeurst - We were all made to crave something. Sin has caused that craving to turn to food and other addictions rather than God.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple - A fun, quirky story of a dysfunctional family that really fall apart when the mother goes missing. A good, quick summer read.

The Good Girl by Mary Kubica - A suspenseful thriller, but without any thing that is too difficult to read for sensitive readers. The twist at the end I did not expect.

Wild and Free by Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan - God is a wild God, doing things we would never expect. God is also free from anything that may hinder him. Because we are followers of Him, we to can live our lives wild and free.

The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty - Many years ago, a tragedy happened that changed everyone lives forever and still effecting the present day. My first books by Moriarty and I am hooked!

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandell - A flu pandemic sweeps the world, wiping most of the population. Now, those left behind must rebuild their lives with what they have left.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

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.
