Halloween 2010

Seth and I went to a conference in Orlando on Thursday and Matthew got to visit with his Opa and Mimi. Matthew, of course, was exceptionally well behaved, until we got back yesterday anyway. Then he started jumping on the couch and doing other forbidden things. We went trick or treating in Opa and Mimi's neighborhood tonight. This was Matthew's 2nd Halloween and he had a blast. Here are some pictures of our outing!!!











Here is Matthew at Halloween last year...






I can't wait til next year and we have little Jackson to take trick or treating too.

What a fun time of year.

Lazy Sunday

So we got up and went to church this morning....it took about 10 minutes for someone to remind me of the Alabama loss to South Carolina yesterday. I have to admit....until this year I really didn't know that South Carolina actually had a football team...or at least a good one. Yesterday...SC showed that they could really play football while Alabama looked like a stinky high school team out on the field. I was very disappointed in our team, but I have to admit I knew they wouldn't win forever.

The sad part about our loss is that I finally got Matthew to say ROOOOLLL TIDE. He will roll his hands in the air while saying Rolllll and then give me high fives on Tide. We were just about to video and then Alabama lost so I'm just not in the spirit to try to get it on video until next weekend.

Today, Matthew was feeling much better by yesterday afternoon so after the game we went to Red Lobster which cheered us all up. They have a great Salmon and I loved loved loved it.

After church we came home. Matthew was being very photogenic so we took some pictures.

Here are some of his funny faces =)

Glowing & Growing

For some reason, everyone has told me that I look different this week. Currently, I am 28 weeks and counting but this is the week that I feel like I am really starting to LOOK and FEEL prego.

Here are some pictures we took last weekend.

Mommy and Matthew (& Jackson too) ;)

Playing around outside.

Helping daddy get the grill ready


This weekend Matthew seems to have caught a stomach virus that I certainly hope I do not catch. At this point he can't even keep water or pedialyte down. I sent him to bed with no water or supper. You could tell that he was starving with thirst and I felt horrible not letting him drink anything but I know it will help him get better in the long run.

Hopefully by the end of the weekend Matthew will be feeling much better and I can post some more pictures of our weekend.

Matthew's Sunshine and Jackson's Honey

My mom is just so talented. When Matthew was born she made him a quilt with the words to the song "You Are My Sunshine" on it. That song was/is a favorite of mine because my mom and grandmother would sing it to me when I was little so it was only natural that we incorporate that song into something of Matthew's.





Since we didn't want to do the same song for Jackson and I am using the bumblebee theme I decided to use the song "I'm Bringing Home A Baby Bumblebee" for Jackson. So my mom in all of her talent whipped up this beauty for her second grandson.









I can't wait for Jackson to get here so he can use it!!!

Swimming on a nice October afternoon



The great thing about living in South Florida is the fact that you can go swimming pretty much all year. Today the high temperature was finally out of the 90's...so we decided to go to our pool for the afternoon. Matthew loves water and did great at the pool. He even went completely under (by accident), but he didn't even cry. He just coughed a little and giggled like he wanted to do it again. We had so much fun. Here are some pictures of the afternoon.
