Rollin rollin rollin...

... keep that baby rollin!

Matthew learned to roll over a few days ago, and I've been trying to get it on video ever since :) He's still not too pleased when I put him on his tummy, but at least now he has a way to get out of it (some of the time anyway - when his arms don't get stuck underneath him)...

A few more pics

A couple of recent pictures of the boy!

Just back from a walk:



Hanging out with Daddy (possibly watching football?)


And here's a little video of Matthew playing with his giraffe, Sophie:

Genius child

Our genius child is reading already, I can hardly believe it! I caught him reading to his moose while I wasn't looking.



After reading to Mortimer (the moose), he gave him a little cuddle just like Mom and Dad do with him. Isn't he sweet? :)

First big laugh!

I finally got a real genuine laugh out of Matthew yesterday! It was so awesome!!! Up until now I've gotten tons of smiles, lots of big 'full face' wide-open-mouth smiles (but no sound) and a couple of hearty "HEH"s...

But yesterday he was in his bassinet and was supposed to be napping but was wide awake. I went over to chat with him and started doing the "Mommy's eating your hands! Uhmmm um um um" and put his fingers in my mouth... and didn't he let out the biggest most wonderful laugh I've ever heard. A real belly laugh - oh I could have died!! :D

Of course I have since tried to replicate it but to no avail. The "Mommy's eating your hands!" just gets a blank stare and maybe a grin, I guess I need something new! :) hee

Growing up...

Our little man is growing up! We made the switch from bassinet to full-on stroller seat today. I think he likes it... what do you think??




And to go with his new view of the world, sunglasses! Here he is modeling them for Daddy this afternoon:
