Our baby boy keeps growing! He is a proficient crawler now. If you watched the video you notice that he frequently falls onto his tummy, but not anymore! He is also pretty fast…and sneaky. Today Momma turned her back for just a few minutes and he made it from the entryway to her plant by the back door and played in the dirt. By the time she found him he had dirt all over his face and his hands. Matthew is also pulling himself up on anything that looks like it will hold him. This has led to many falls, bruises and even a scratch. He bounces back quickly from most of the spills, and even has caught himself a few times when he started falling so what would have been a big fall was only a small bump. In the food department he’s started eating avocado, banana, sweet potatoes and green beans. I’ve been making the baby food. I thought it would be fun, and so far it has been. But it will be the first thing to go when I need extra time, and I doubt kid number three will be this lucky.
Doug and Matthew had their second over night together on May 2-3. Our church had their women’s retreat in Giddings, Texas at Camp Tejas. It was a good time for all around. I learned about rest and the importance of resting in the Lord. I had the opportunity to kayak on a very small pond as well as spend Friday night palying games and dancing. Doug took the kiddo rock climbing with Mike on Saturday at Rimers. I’m looking forward to the day when Matthew will surpass Doug as a rock climber.
We went to the pediatrician a few weeks ago. He was 271/4 inches long and 16lbs 14oz. He also got his third round of vaccinations. We don’t go back until he’s nine months old.
Matthew’s had a cough for a week now. On Saturday (May 3) he had his highest fever to date 100.8. I read it wrong at first and thought it said 108. I freaked out. I know what to do if it’s 101, but 108 seemed beyond my ability to fix. Doug cautioned me against entering panic mode when there is a serious problem.
