It turns out I'm not so good at this blogging- consistency speaking. But come on! I have a million children...or four. 

Anyway, here's a couple pictures of my love bug and his exploring outside. He has figured out he can push through our screen door (we have a Magic Mesh) so many afternoons he finds his way to the backyard. The other afternoon the older kids had been "watering the flowers" (read: spraying each other) so the ground was quite wet. Matthew thoroughly enjoyed himself!

A Little At Home Therapy

At Matthew's first physical therapy appointment at Children's Hospital, the therapist used a Kaye Adjustable Bench to help Matthew stand up; I thought it was the perfect height but figured the cost would make it prohibidibidabo. Good thing I know someone super handy! My dad, for those of you who didn't see the dresser project. He even made it with adjustable legs, so as Matthew gets taller, so can the table. It's perfect. Here are a couple pics of Matthew doing some awesome standing and then trying to pull himself up on it. 

The stud!

His little legs look so short!

Trying to get up!

He got his butt off the ground- if he could only figure out what to do with his legs.

First...errr...Second Day of First Grade

Yup...that's just the way it goes. Don't tell, but I also forgot to ask Isaac these questions until today. Oh well! I can't imagine his answers are much different than they would have been 4 weeks ago.

So here's my boy, 6 years old, 1st grade. Crazyville.

Yup, that happened.

A pose in tribute to Lorelai...
