So today is Matthew's 1 year and 1/2 birthday. He went for his doctor's check up this afternoon and he has not had an ear infection for 3 months!!!! His ears were completely clear today...that makes mommy so happy. I am sure it makes Matthew happy too. He now weighs 21 lbs and 1 ounce...Dr. Goosby says he is perfect and ready to be a big brother. According to the doctor he should be saying around 20 words right now and by 2 years old he should be saying 50 words. Lets see...
duck (and quacks)
cat (and meows)
dog (and woofs)
nose (and points to his nose or any nose)
ear (and points)
mouth (and points)
eye (and points)
bottle (although I think he is actually saying ba-ba)
do that (which means he wants something to eat)
I think there is more but all in all I think he is getting along pretty well.
Below are some pictures I took this morning. He even stood still and posed when I told him to in a couple of them. I can't believe he is getting so big.
Here are some pictures of Matthew one year ago today. It's hard to imagine that we have been in our house exactly 1 year now. We moved in on Matthew's 6 month birthday. These pictures are the last pictures we have of him in our condo. It was such a mess with moving that we had to put him in his bed to take the pictures.
These pictures are not from his actual 6 month birthday but they are some of my all time favorite. He has grown so much that I can hardly remember him not being able to walk or sit up on his own. Wow. What a difference a year makes!!!
