Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to everyone!! hope you all had a wonderful one! we had so much fun with matt this year. Santa left him a rocking horse and it scared him a little because it makes noise:) but he warmed up to it. He loved his sock and of course as you can see he got a little quad he loves that mostly he climbes on it and pushes it around the house. one day it was nice and we took him outside on it and taped the button down for him and he thought that was the best thing ever!! he is such a boy;)

Go Speed Racer!!

Matt loves to "drive" he gets so excited when you put him on your lap in the car and he gets to move the steering wheel! (while the car is in park obviously) he even goes as far as to try to move the shifter:) and now he has recently discovered how to make car noises (sort of). I took him to the outlet mall the other day and let him get in one of the cars he had so much fun he didn't want to leave and now gets sooo excited whenever he sees them. So today we were bored and went out to the outlet mall again and i decided to let him ride one:) that was, as you can see the best thing ever!!

Matt got his first band-aide worthy owie the other day. We were at the pool and it is tiled all around which is not smart but hey we are in puerto rico after all the kiddie pool is also above ground but is square so there are sharp edges(again not smart) anyway he likes to play outside of the pool just as much or maybe more than inside the pool. needless to say it was wet and he slipped and fell right smack dab on the corner right in the middle of his forehead. He was a trooper though I think he cried more out of irritation that I was trying to clean it off with a towel than the hurt:) then we got home I cleaned it up and we of course only have huge oversized band-aides because well his daddies owies are alot bigger than matts would be;) so since I didn't want to go buy a bunch of band-aides just for the one owie I just used the oversized ones which made it look a lot worse than it actually was. I may have gotten a few concerned looks. oh well what can we say it is in his blood i'm sure this is the first of many.

Well I haven't posted in a while so i thought i'd give it a try:) my computer is sooooo slow it drives me crazy! plus matt hates it when i pay attention to anything but him. He is 9 months and a couple weeks now and it seems like the first nine months with him went alot slower than these 9! not fair! but i love every minute of being with him (well most of the time:) he is so fun and is walking all over the place now, he is into everything! he likes to get in the closet and pull out the shoes he gets so excited when i leave the door open on accident (the biggest smile ever!) he also apparently likes to help with the laundry the other day i looked over and he was carrying a big armful of laundry (that he got out of the basket) around the room. he is now at the stage where he likes to do whatever we are doing and since he has six teeth i decided to try out brushing them, well it actually went pretty well:) he sits pretty good for me when i brush them and then i let him hold the tooth brush, that is his favorite and now anytime i am brushing my teeth he wants to do his too:) the next picture i have on here is just one of him one day when he woke up from a nap (it is usually like this if he gets a good enough nap) i love it when he first wakes up he looks at me like i am his best friend ever so i savor those moments:) love you all and cant wait to come home!!

Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween (early) we got matt a tigger costume since he is such a tigger but i will post those pictures later. He loves his costume and gets excited everytime he sees it even though i'm pretty sure he has no idea what it is. its orange and it's soft so he loves it we had to eventually hide it from him so he wont get it dirty before halloween he also loves his pumpkin bucket it also is orange and he can carry it around(are you seeing a theme yet?) he loves orange things and soft things. So anyway here are some pictures from the other night in his halloween pj's


1. How many kids call you mommy, momma, or mom?


2. When you were pregnant did you know what you were having?

Yes, are you kidding if I could have found out sooner I would have:)

February 5

4. Did you deliver early or late?

right on time

5. Did you have morning sickness?

well I felt sick for a couple of months but only got sick twice

6. What did you crave?

anything spicy, especially salsa and all peppers(i had really bad heart burn in that last half of the pregnancy:( )

7. How old were you when you became a mom?


8. How long were you in Labor?

I guess technically 18 hours but they sent me home the first time because i was not dialated enough and i came back 6 hours later when my water broke so total time in the hospital was 12 hours.

9. How much did your child weight?


10. What is your favorite thing about being a mom?

when he wakes up and just smiles at me:) plus all the funny little noises he makes and how excited he gets when he discovers something new or does something that we praise him for:)

11. What is your least favorite thing?

poopie diapers and teething!!

12. Do you want more kids?

yes eventually but i'm in no rush right now anyway:)

13. How many times have you been peed on?

only a couple i think he pees on himself more than anything

what a Be"dae"

So for those of you who don't know what a bedae is (or however you spell that) it is next to the toilet and shoots water up when you sit on it to help clean you off after you use the toilet. they are very popular in Europe so they have them all over here. Matt learned how to turn it on the other day when i was in the shower and thinks it is the funnest thing to play with:) so i videoed it for you all:)

Matthew learned how to walk!! he is walking much better now and obviously during the day when he isn't tired he doesn't cry everytime he walks either. We have tried getting a better video but he is such a ham and likes to pose for the camera or try to get it so this is the best we can do for now.

Beach and Sunsets

We went to the beach again the other night and the sunset was gorgeous! though we didnt stay long because matt was done and didnt want to be in the water or the sand.

Biggest Loser

So i have been in Puerto Rico since the middle of September and will be gone for several months and I decided when I came home I was going to be a new person. Thinner, stronger, and more domestic. I live with Amy who is a personal trainer and she has been helping me. So far I have cooked every meal except for 3 times and I have started working out. We don't have cars here this time so that does help a little on the weight loss because I have to walk everywhere, but since I've been here I have lost 9 lbs!!! so yea for me I thought since this is my own blog I could toot my own horn:) and I am proud of myself for sticking with it I only have 36 more lbs to go for my goal weight and am well on my way to a healthier me:)

Puerto Rico

We arrived in Puerto Rico on Friday and the very next day we were at the beach(no surprise there) Matt really liked the sand on the beach but is a little weary about the water still, he loves swimming but the ocean is a little different than a pool.

Bath Time

Matt loves to take baths! The problem is he loves to stand up in the tub and that, well we all know does not end up happy in the end:)

Hilton Head Island

Josh always claims that Hilton Head is his second home...
Well matt can officially say that. We have lived in Hilton Head half of Matt's life so far.

Cutie "Pie"

Cookies and Cake. I think maybe he has a little Adams blood in him:) he does as you can see like to hold the food himself. He loves to eat whatever we are eating and even more so now that he has 4 teeth.
