Silly boy!!!

Well...I have been bad about posting these last couple of weeks. My life has been very busy but hopefully after the next week or so things will calm down a bit and I will be able to post more regularly.

This FIL and MIL cam to visit for the day on Saturday and we had a great visit. We went to Portofino (a pizza place near us) for lunch and then they had to get back to Naples. They had been to St. Thomas last week and flew out and back into Miami so they were very tired and needed to get back home.

On Friday...Matthew went back to the doctor for a check-up on the ears...and for now...his ears are clear so that means NO ENT Doctor right now!!! He has been in a much better mood recently and I hope that continues for a while.

This past week...he started walking more and more and now he pretty much walks anywhere he wants. That makes me happy!!! Everyone is telling me that now is when the hard part starts....I don't see it yet other than I have to watch him a little closer.

I almost forgot....Matthew is now saying 'Cracker' although it sounds a little like ka ka lol!!! We know it is cracker because he is actually pointing and asking for one at dinner and tonight while we were eating he came over and started saying Cracker...Cracker so we gave him one and he was happy!!! Our first verbal communication tell us what he wants...I am so proud!!!

Well I better get going for tonight. Enjoy the pictures and have a great week!!!

Dr. Patterson--It does run in the family =)

I just had to have these PJs when I saw them on the hanger. Especially since Matthew's Uncle Aaron is right now a resident in psychiatry.

Have a great 4 day week!!!

Happy Valentine's Day and Mardi Gras Sunday


This is what I got for Valentine's Day!!! Isn't it soooo pretty. Also, from Matthew I got the soundtrack to the Broadway musical "Wicked". It is coming to Miami in March and I kinda hope I get to go, but if I don't then at least I have the CD to listen to.

Here are some pictures of my youngest Valentine.

Today was also Mardi Gras Sunday at church. We had a Dixieland Jazz band there playing along with some really great African American Spirituals. Days like today make joining the choir very exciting. We got to dress in Mardi Gras colors and wear beads and crowns. After church they had a Cajun lunch (we didn't stay but it sure smelled good). Unfortunately we forgot the camera =( !!!!

Have a great President's Day!!!

I am so excited tonight!!! Matthew is getting more and more comfortable walking in between Seth and I and tonight he was basically walking...yes, Tia...I said walking across the living room!!!

We are so happy that he is finally getting the hang of it.

Whew, we have had one hectic week...first of all...I have been fighting off Matthew's cold/ear infection. I don't think I am getting an ear infection but I do have yet another horrible cold.

Tonight we went to Outback...where else...If there is a special event then we go to Outback. It was so good and Matthew really knows how to behave himself at a restaurant.

Well..I am going to get back to watching the Olympics.

An Hour After All of That Happened!!! this week has been filled with one thing or another. I feel like just when I think that something else couldn't go does. Well this week was one of those. To make matters worse...Matthew has an ear infection in BOTH EARS. He is not tolerating the change to whole milk very well...he is constipated...and today right in the middle of Cracker Barrel he threw-up (not just a little) his WHOLE lunch and breakfast with plenty of juice and milk to make it go EVERYWHERE. Needless to say...I couldn't even eat lunch after that happened. I was so embarrassed.

Can you believe that these pictures were taken just about an hour after all of that happened???

Now he seems fine...he is just not eating as much. I think that he might have some issues with milk. I guess I should call his GI doctor and see if he needs to be checked out for something like a milk allergy. He refused a bottle tonight and last night as well.

I guess we did get some good news this week. On Wednesday, Matthew weighed 19 pound and 10 ounces. So we are knocking on 20 pounds!!!!

Tonight we went to the United Teachers of Dade multicultural event. Matthew, even though he didn't have a good morning, loved the show. We had dancers, singers, and even a group of mimes perform. Matthew even started dancing like a Flamenco dancer at one point. The food was from all different types of cultures. We had lots of fun.
