Matthew is 2 months old

Our little Matthew has grown so much. We took him to the doctor for his 2 month checkup and shots this last week. He didn't like that one bit and was fussy for the rest of the day. Poor guy! I love how the doctors make the poor nurse do all the shots so they aren't the bad guys! Matthew is now 12 lbs and 24.5" long, a very nice size baby! He is growing like a weed and going strong. He is now spending a little time on his belly everyday but doesn't really appreciate it.

On Sundays, I like to take the kids over to visit family. Daddy isn't usually home until a couple hours after church so going over to be spoiled by grandparents is a great way to spend Sunday evenings. It works out well for all of us. Last weekend I took them over to my grandparents home, "Gampa & Gamma" Belt's. My grandparents loved playing with Matthew especially when he smiled and cooed plus he loves all the attention! Joshua fell asleep on the way over but as soon as he woke up and realized were he was, he wanted a cookie from "Gampa" Belt. It is fun to see my kids enjoy my grandparents so much. They are all very dear to me.

The kids finished off their soccer season with their final games and received their trophies. They had a great season. Taylor even scored the final point for his team! Yeah for Taylor! He was very proud of his accomplishment! It was lots of fun to see both of them really get into the sport. I would say we had a rather successful season since they enjoyed themselves so much! I recommend trying lots of different activities until your child finds their niche. It really makes them feel good to have fun and play! With summer only a month away, I hope they enjoy swimming as much as soccer. We are going to be taking advantage of my parents pool all summer long!
