Time Flies

This week has just flown by. So has this year. I can't believe it is already Thanksgiving next week. We have alot to be thankful this year. We can't THANK Matthew's birthparents enough for the wonderful and precious gift of life that they have given to us. Matthew's first Thanksgiving-we are SO excited about the holidays. This is the best holiday season I have had in the last eight years. When we were struggling with infertility I hated the holidays. I bought Matthew's first Christmas present last night. I also found LOTS more that I want to buy for him. I AM SO EXCITED! December will be a busy month for us. We are excited to include Matthew's birthparents in our celebration this year. We already have a dinner scheduled with Matthew's birthfather and his family. I still have to make arrangements with Matthew's birthmother and her family for dinner.

Matthew is doing awesome on his new formula. Some spit up but nothing like it was before. He usually only spits up if he drinks it to fast. We are pleased with this formula even though it costs a bit more. It only comes in liquid form so I make up the bottles the night before so all we do is pull them out of the fridge and warm them up slightly. We found out last night when we went out to eat that he does not like cold formula. He made some funny faces and would not drink it.

Matthew is so funny and he knows just how to get his way. Last night, Scott fed him about 10 but we didn't go to bed until 11 because we finished watching a movie. When we decided to go to bed, Scott went to put him in the bassinet and he instantly woke up. Scott laid him on our bed and we both heard him laugh (I guess he knows how to get his way already!!!!). We both thought it was so funny. Well Scott ended up sleeping with him on the couch. They went to sleep about 11:30 and Matthew didn't get up until 4:30 this morning. YEAH!!!!! He sure was hungry! Hopefully he sleeps good again tonight. He probably will because it is Scott's turn to get up. He only likes to stay up all night when it is my turn. HAHAHA!!!!!

What formula are you using? Jada is the spit up queen! She is still gaining weight, however, but we are soaked from head to toe all day, every day!
