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.

  1. Sarah,Hi its Shannon! :)I am sorry i didnt make it to your baby shower last year, i wanted to so bad but at the time i was working out of town. I just recntly came across the invitation i recieved and wanted to leave a message. Well I am longer working and am going to school full time to be in the field of medical administration. Its going well for me, the reason i began school was because i was pregnant and wanted a more stable job close to home. In Feb of this year i lost the baby due to a genetic disorder. Being in school at this time was so hard for me but i pushed through and am going to be finished in 3 months. I live with my fiancee and his son who is seven his name is also Matthew, in Helotes,TX. Good news!!I am pregnant again amazingly 3 months after my miscarriage, i am almost done with my 1st trimester and my 2nd begins July 14th. I feel so much better this time around considering my last pregnancy was filled with horrible pains i cant even describe. I’m not experiancing any of that, which is good. I feel somewhat normal. LOLWe pretty much have names picked out…GIRL: Sarah LynnBOY: Caleb BrendonWhen thinking of names for a girl I really liked Shiloh or Sarah.The name “Sarah”, I instantly thought of you and remembered how whole-some and kind you were, which was a big inspiration for me.
