Matthew giggles over the funniest things. He is also very ticklish especially his tummy, sides and back. Occassionally you get get his feet but not like his sides. He has been a happy baby the last couple of days. Today he has been an eating machine. I think he is going through a growth spurt.

Still eating away on the bacon.
This is what is left of the piece of bacon.
The picture above he has a fruit puff in his hand. He doesn't have the pinching down yet with the finger and thumb so he just grabs and tries to put his whole fist in his mouth. Usually the fruit puff falls out of his hand before it gets to the mouth.

He woke up from his nap today crying hard so I picked him up to soothe him and he just kept crying so I called Scott. I put it on speaker phone but as soon as Matthew heard it, he was quiet. He ended up falling back to sleep in my arms and is dreaming lots and snoring. What a funny boy!

I remember when our niece Emma was teething. She always got stuffed up and had a runny nose just before her teeth came in.
Plus Matthew has not had much of an appetite lately so I am thinking that he will probably have teeth REAL soon!
I am just hoping that he will sleep in the crib tonight because I didn't sleep very good on the couch.
Hope everyone has a splendid day!

This video was taken on Friday when Scott got home early. Scott worked lots of hours last week so Matthew was very excited to see him. Spitting is Matthew's new thing especially when he is mad. When he is mad, he will cry and then put his head down and start spitting really hard. He will not let me get it on video. Matthew also loves the cat. He squeels when she comes close to him. Our cat is very tempermental and is just starting to getting used to Matthew. Yesterday when we were sitting on the couch, our cat jumped up on my lap while Matthew was on Scott's lap, Sophie (our cat) actually let Matthew pull her tail and she didn't growl. After a few times, Sophie got annoyed and jumped down.
Austin is a little jealous of Matthew but he wanted to play with Matthew. He even wanted Matthew to ride on his trike with him.
We had a wonderful weekend! Scott was home most of the weekend except for a few hours on Saturday when he was helping his brother, Kyle, cut down a tree. Matthew and I also went to Kyle's and I helped make breakfast for them. Sunday we spent the day together. We even got a nap in while Matthew was napping. Actually Scott and Matthew got some play time together while I napped and then Scott was able to nap after Matthew went down for a nap. Matthew seemed to want to sleep alot yesterday. He took 4 naps yesterday.
I will post pictures later this afternoon when Matthew is taking a nap! I got some cute ones of him and Scott.

The picture below is my mom holding Matthew!
I can see the fingerprints of God
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of God
And I know it's true
You're a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of God
So look around you and see where YOU can see God's fingerprints. Is it in nature? Kids? Animals? Where do you see them?
Today Matthew and I spent the day this my mom. We had lots of fun! Grandma likes to spoil Matthew. We even got to see Austin, my nephew. When he walked into Grandma's house the first thing he said was Baby, Baby. That is what he calls Matthew. Austin will be 2 in April.

This is Emily (She is in the 3rd grade)getting a ride of the tractor (actually she is steering it while Scott used all the pedals). She even helped Scott plow or move some snow.
Eric was just outside observing them on the tractor. He didn't want to ride on the tractor. We did get him to sit on the tractor so that I could get a picture.

I hope he sleeps good tonight. The last couple of times from 11:30 to 1:30 I have had to get up and give him his nuk about every 1/2 hour. Last night I was so tired that I almost brought him to the bassinet to sleep so he would be closer and I wouldn't have to get up but when I thought about it, he didn't wake up again until morning.

Grammie and Papa bought Matthew a little chick (a toy not a real one) that chirps when you touch the contacts on the bottom. I don't know how Matthew can get that little chick to chirp but he is fascinated with it and I don't think that it has stopped chirping since I gave it to him. Matthew gets really mad when he drops it on the floor.
