2 months old

Matthew turned 2 months old on November 24. I am trying to post pics for each month, but it is a little overwhelming. :) He likes to smile a lot. And he likes to get hugs and kisses from his brother Peter.

Catching Up....

Holy Moly, my dear husband installed Picasa on our computer and now I seriously have no excuse to fall behind on blogging ever. It is now super easy to post pics so I am pretty excited. Time is now a premium for me...okay, it was before. But seriously, it is really precious these days. I can't believe I have not put any pictures up since Halloween.

This was Matthew's baptism day. He was baptized November 1. Peter was baptized when he was 2 weeks old. Matthew was a little older and I was a little less sleep deprived, so I think I was able to focus on it a little more. It was a really nice day. We love our church family!

This is the only angle of Peter that we can get a picture of these days. He is still obsessed with the camera. And anytime I try to take a picture of Matthew, Peter tries to squeeze his face in like the above shot.

Halloween/Reformation Day

Mike carved a pumpkin

I'm a cowboy!

matty the cow....

We went to our church tonight for a Reformation Day party. I asked Peter to hug Lambie and Bob and this was the result.

cowboy and Indian

probably one of the last documented times that Peter does not understand the significance of a lollipop. He tried to use it as a phone and then he threw it on the floor....


Pumpkin Patch

Here are our obligatory pumpkin patch photos. It was pretty fun--we went to a place pretty close to our house last will have to stay tuned for the Halloween costume pics.

Peter was kind of overwhelmed when we first got there....there was a petting zoo and ponies..and of course, lots of pumpkins.

The llama was HUGE. Can't really see that in this picture. But trust me, coming from someone who has an irrational fear of petting zoos, it was big.

"are you telling me that people actually pay money to feed these animals?"

running through the pumpkins

what better place to eat than a pumpkin patch?

the challenges of taking pictures of a family of four

this is the best we could get

we went out to lunch afterwards and Peter had his first chocolate milk. he loved the straw as much as the milk.

1 month

Hard to believe it has been 1 month since Matthew joined us....

We gave him his first bath....

I'm still having trouble deciding if Matthew and Peter look alike...

We also took Matthew on his first walk...

And this morning, I subjected Matthew to his first photo shoot...which is a lot trickier with a toddler running around...

First Haircut

Not sure if you have noticed in the recent pics...but Peter
needed a haircut...Mike already cuts his own hair so he volunteered
to cut Peter's. We distracted him with juice and books. He never
gets juice, so it was quite a treat for him.

Mike bought some scissors with rounded edges.
We thought Peter might be afraid of the whole process,
but I think he was too excited about the juice to notice
what was going on.

where did my hair go?

he still likes to grab for the camera...

Leaving Hospital and Life at Home....

We came home on Sunday, September 27th. It was weird having a full backseat!

Peter giving a questionable thumbs up about his new partner in crime.

the boys....

for all you fashionistas out there, this was Matthew's "going home" outfit...

this pic is for Tante Heidi.
Bonds is a popular clothing company in Oz
and these socks are from her...he wore them home

sleeping around the house....

more sleeping....

Matthew found his thumb on day 4? Whatever day it was, it was very early. I think he is going to be a very oral child....uh oh...
