They Grow Up So Fast
It seems like only yesterday we were loosing our minds, consulting holistic healers and searching for ANYTHING that would relieve the pain that comes with teething. Now, Matthew has a head full of teeth that needed to be checked. That's right, his first ever dentist appointment. Due to Matthew's exceptional ability to freak out, we decided to go for a "happy visit" where the dentist would count his teeth, show him the tools and basically make it "fun." We'll terrorize him next time! He did very well and is looking forward to going back (we'll enjoy THAT while we can).

After much stress and a few tantrums, Matthew realized how easy it was to ride his bike. He has been riding it around the neighborhoods for a while now, but sadly, he has out grown it. We recently got him a new bike (courtesy of his MeMaw) and we now have to start the process all over again. While he has the basic concept down, he isn't quite used to the set up yet. He's doing well and will no doubt be ready for the X-Games in no time.

Here to help us with the bike training was Nana. She was kind enough to play trains and games, watch movies, make fruit salad (in the play kitchen) and pretty much anything else that Matthew wanted to do. He does love his Nana!

Matthew has also expressed interest in golf. His style is more Happy Gilmore and less Tiger Woods, but he has fun and that's all that matters.

I realize that it has been a while since we have updated. It has also therefore been a while since I have ended a new post with some butt-shot and a joke about Matthew's lack of a rear end. I just want you all to know...he comes by it honestly!
