Last week as you recall Matthew was really grumpy a few days but now this week he is a totally different kid. He has been in such a good mood. I think that last week he was not feeling good. Scott got sick on Saturday night and we think that Matthew possible had a touch of it during the week.

Matthew had cereal all over his hands and right away he went for the slippers on the feet.

On Friday, we took Matthew's birthmom, Adie, out to dinner to celebrate her birthday. Matthew was just hamming it up and Adie enjoyed every minute. And of course, he had to break her in to and spit up all over her. Sorry about that Adie :( He does that to everyone! We had lots of fun!

Scott's uncle Lee was a kind man who always had a story to tell. And even at 78 years old he still flirted with his wife. He was a man of wisdom as well and could fix or help you fix anything. He will be geatly missed!

He has been doing better with sleeping since we started him on cereal at night. If he goes to sleep around 9p.m., we can usually get him to sleep until 4:45a.m. (Those are my nights that he sleeps until 4:45a.m. but when it is Scott's nights, he usually wakes up at 3a.m.). Thursday morning, he decided he wanted to get up at 4a.m. (my night). He started kicking his feet and then he let out a loud squeal. We both were very surprised because he almost always wakes up grumpy and crying and is that way until you put him on his changing table. I did try to put him in bed with us to see if we could get a few more minutes of sleep but NO WAY, Matthew wanted to get up. I don't know why last night but Matthew was up at 1:30a.m. I got up and fed him and he didn't want to go back to sleep. We reclined on the couch and ended up falling asleep.

Remembering back to before Matthew was born-Emma was pretty excited that she was getting a new cousin. When we found out that we were going to be parents we didn't know how to tell everyone so on our annual camping trip we let Emma tell everyone that she was getting a new cousin. After we set up our tent, we were in the tent talking and getting our beds ready and we were talking to Emma about her new cousin and asked if she wanted to tell everyone that she was getting a new cousin. So it was her little secret until dinner that night. During dinner I had her come over to me and I held her up and I told her to tell everyone her secret. She had to say it four times before we got everyone's attention. It was really exciting and everyone was really excited for us. During one of our days camping, Scott and I had to leave to go to an ultrasound and when we got done we asked Matthew's birthmother if she would like to meet Scott's family so she came to the campground with us. After we introduced her to the family, Emma came over to us and asked birthmom if she had a baby in her tummy. Birthmom said Yes and we all laughed.
Then the Sunday before Matthew was born, Emma was in the front of our church during the children's sermon and she kept saying "I'm getting a new cousin." Then our pastor said, "And God's grace will be with your new cousin too." The whole congregation just laughed. I think that she had an intuition that her new cousin was coming sooner that we all knew.

The doctor also told us that we can start feeding him cereal. We can then add fruits and vegetables after a few weeks. He says that the cereal might help with the spit up. We also asked if we could try soy formula to see if that helps with the spit up. He said that he didn't think that it would help but he would not be opposed to us trying that if we wanted to. We may try to see if that can maybe help with the spit up. With the Similac Sensitive RS, Matthew did pretty good the first few weeks but then it went back to where he was spitting up a lot again.

First Nap in the crib! He only slept 1/2 hour. He slept about 1/2 hour to 40 minutes in the crib today, but first I let him sleep on my chest for 1/2 hour.
Hope everyone enjoys Matthew's pictures.
We are sure proud parents and love to take lots of pictures. I just wish that I could scrapbook more to keep caught up on all the pictures that we are taking. Last weekend I spent time organizing all the pictures. We actually had to buy an external hard drive to hold all the pictures because it was slowing our computer down so much. I think that I have already used about 40 GB of the hard drive (it is 1 TB (terrabyte), which is equal to 1,000GB) so I can take lots more pictures. HaHaHa!
