I'm glad we are not that far from home just in case. Matthew has never slept in his pack-n-play or away from home. I am a little nervous but excited at the same time. The nap thing is the thing that worries me the most. He is still taking 2 naps a day and if he doesn't, he gets pretty onery. Also what if I forget something! I have been making lists for days to make sure that I get everything but it is always the small things that always seem to be forgotten. We have to come home each day anyway so that our cat can get fed so if we do forget anything, we can get it then. Do all new moms worry about forgetting things when they go on vacation/camping? Whew I think we will all be dead tired by the time we come home.
I will be posting LOTS of pictures when we return! Well I better finish getting everything ready and try to get some sleep tonight in MY bed! Hope everyone has a great week!

Nature & Kids
Watering and more watering. Never fails, I always get wet when I move the sprinklers. Scott makes it look so so easy. (July 10, 2009) God has answered my prayers in the last week or so and has sent rain and lots of it.
Scott and Matthew cleaning out the bird bath/pond. Matthew loves being outside so we are glad that we got the lawn in. Even though he still gets plenty dirty from the black dirt where not all the grass seed has taken, he loves to be out there. (July 21, 2009-It had been mowed for the first time a couple days before this picture below had been taken)
Matthew then discovered the rocks! I love how he is studying that rock. Each rock in the bird bath is unique just like each and every one of us. God made us just how he wanted us to be.
As I sit and watch Matthew explore and be curious about everything around him I am often catching myself looking at things from a new perspective and really appreciating and enjoying the simple things in life=God's masterpiece.

As you can see he didn't like the cold water getting on him! He was so dirty that Scott handed him to me over the deck railing and I put him in the swimming pool to rinse him and his clothes off. I then striped him down on the deck and brought him in to a warm bath.

He is a mover and a shaker! Yesterday he was playing and pulling himself up on the walker. He dropped his sunglasses down in the seat (they went through the leg hole and landed on the floor). He crawled up and laid across the walker to see if he could reach them. I'm sure that it will not be long before he learns to crawl up on the couch or in our dining room chairs.

The birthday cakes had gumballs all around them and gummy butterflies also.
Matthew making his new funny face at Grammie! He started this new wrinkle up the nose look and then snorts at the same time. It is the funniest thing!!!!

On Thursday, we also had a special event. Our niece Emma turned 4 years old! She decided that she wanted to eat at McDonalds. Matthew loved the chicken nuggets. After dinner we went to Kyra and Emma's so that Emma could open presents and we had ice cream cake. Then today was her party. We had fun! Matthew was a really good baby and didn't even get crabby around the time he usually naps. When we left, I don't even think that we made it a mile and he was already sleeping and slept almost 2 hours.

On another note: Can you believe that Matthew is already 10 months old today? It is hard to believe. It seems like he was born just a few days ago. Time sure goes by fast.

(Great) Auntie Kathy letting Matthew play in the dirt without mommy knowing! Mommy didn't want Matthew to get to dirty before we went to our other party.
