My bad- there is new things to report: AnWanna bruised my baby (she was just the closest when it happened, he fell when he turned his head to watch the food). Matey has discovered the hallway. He likes to crawl up and down and into the room with the Christmas Tree. And into AnWanna's room, and away from littleuncle Brents room.
Matey also likes to vacuum, or at least play with the vacuum cleaner.
He also likes to play with silverware, no plastic untensils for my boy. (thePirate: click on this picture to see it big and read what Matey's shirt says.) Also when you click for a bigger picture you can see his bruise: under his eye on your left, his right.
Matey doesn't like clothing. Taking it off or putting it on. I usually dress him all at once or in sections. On this day i had put on his new pants, and shoved the onesie over his head but he crawled off before I took the jumper from the overnight off. AnWanna decided there needed to be a picture.
He was playing with the tree while I was getting photos and then turned and spotted me and came and got me and gave me kisses and then went back to the tree.
Matey Loves the tree and wishes everyday could be Christmas-y.
I test the strength of Grammys printer and give it an A+.
I help people write on the computer whenever possible.
I finish every last bite of food I'm given.
I help my Mommy unload the dish washer.
See, I've been the best little boy in the world. So for Christmas I want thePirate back home to play with, ok?
*as a side note I will not be doing santa with Matey, Santa being real and all of that won't be happening.
Also: Matey climbing up the dishwasher was a re-enactment of true events. I was putting dishes away and thought he was standing on the floor banging the bottom rack, and turned to find him standing on the lid banging the top rack. In the photo I'm holding on to him but in real life he was unsupported and giving me a heart attack.
While he does do a really good job of eating food- in the stuffing his face picture he's been given a piece of candy.
Matey kept trying to head dive out of my arms, my friend Piper-Sue (with her baby) did a guided fall to show how/where they would land and they would stop diving out of her arms. So I decided to try with Matey. He was going to do a head dive and I gently guided him out of my arms and onto the floor.
Matey had other plans. As soon as his grubby little hands were close enough he put them out and started to cruise. So we had AnWanna video him for us. He doesn't usually veer into the couch (we've done this a few times now) but we do normally do it in the middle of the living room floor where there's not much for him to bump into.
I found the camera so be prepared for more and recent pictures.
You are? Well then, perhaps I should get off my lazy tushie and post some pictures!
We got back from Texas, it snowed the day we left. Everyone there loved Matey and he LOVED his GrandMa and Aunt Crystal.
None of these photos are actually from our Texas adventure... those are still in Texas...
But Thanksgiving was Yummy and it was fun to see AuntBekiandUncleDan and we did lots of shopping.
Mateys fabulous koala space robe is from Cooks Children Hospital.
He had been running a fever but then started screaming at 5am (I was pretty sure it was just gas but we decided to be safe instead of sorry) so we went to the hospital and by 5:30 when we got there he was fine again. Just fussy from the fever. And it was just gas. Or possibly a night terror but I'll have to ask Mateys Dr if its possible at his age. The only possibility for Milk was the bread used for the stuffing (which Matey ate in real life and through the breastmilk).
Overall we had lots of fun and can't wait until April when we get to go back, but with thePirate!
