Sorry we haven't been very good about posting new pictures and keeping everyone up to date on Matthew! We have been pretty busy these past couple of weeks. We are moving next week so we are trying to get packed up and ready to go. We also went to Houston over the weekend to visit Ben's brother and family! We finally got to meet our niece Emmie and play with Micah! The last time that Matthew and Micah played was in March and Matthew has been asking us since then if we could go back to Micah's house and play! We finally were able to go and the boys had a blast playing with each other. They played very well together and laughed at one another. The whole weekend both boys said "two silly boys jumping on the bed" but one silly boy (Matthew) fell and hurt his top lip jumping on the bed! After that they didn't jump on the bed anymore but they continued to talk about the two silly boys jumping on the bed. Micah also taught Matthew how to get dirty! Matthew is a clean freak! He doesn't want anything on his hands and can't stand to be dirty but by the end of the weekend Matthew was playing in sandbox and walking in the rain. It was great to see him having so much fun while being messy!

Good Bye Diapers!!!!!!!!!!!!
In the past few weeks Matthew has learned to use the potty! It seems like all it took was just one day and we were done. He is doing really well with using the potty but like every child we have had a few accidents. Ben and I are very proud of him. He is such a BIG BOY now!
Here is one picture of Matthew trying to surf on a box. I took Matthew to see the movie "Surf's Up" with our friends Raymie, Maisy, Maddie, and Chyanne and since then he thinks he wants to be a surfer. He told Ben and I that when he gets bigger he was going surfing!

Animals, Animals Animals

Matthew, Blake, Brooke, Granna and Misty had a big week with the animals while they were here. They went to the aquarium and the zoo.

Matthew had a brush with death when he decided to pet the sting ray.

Here's a nice group shot of everyone!

So excited about the sharks.

A monkey in a Jeep....and then there's the chimp in the passenger seat!
