Matt loves to wear "his" towel which are the smaller hand towels and he likes to wear it like daddy:) he is so fun and is growing so much and learning so much.
the other day matt kept saying something and i couldnt understand him this doesnt happen all the time but enough and i usually can figure out what he's saying eventually. well i figured out he was saying baby einstein he wanted to watch his movie it sounds nothing like baby einstein so i was trying to help him to say it right by saying one word at a time as you can see he can say both but when you put the two words together it goes back to the original version. gotta love it :)

Matt learned how to swim! he wasnt a big fan of the water this summer but i brought his life jacket down to hilton head. Wes came down to swim with us and matt watched him a couple of times and was just like i think i can do that i guess cause he just jumped in and started swimming:) he can swim from one end of the pool and back long wise and will swim for hours then he takes a great nap or if i prefer goes to bed on time instead of midnight:)
this is matts favorite book ever! he will sit on the bed and read it to himself but prefers to be read to but knows what most of the things are now without coaxing him. he still thinks we are saying mommy instead of mummy though and i guess can't see the difference:) so he thinks a mummy says "no,no,no" gotta love little kids.
in an update matt is talking a ton now i think i must give credit to wes since we've been around him matt has really gotten good. some of the funny things he says...
1. one day we were cleaning (matt loves things clean) and we got the room all clean then i dumped the clean clothes on the bed to fold and he looked at me shocked and said "oh momma! mess!" i said i know matt momma made a mess so i will clean it up then he replied "k" as if to say oh you better.
2. he is obsessed with poop right now or the word anyway so he is always telling me somebody went poopoo lately the person has been tenninannn poopoo all one word translation "terriann poo poo" sorry terriann i dont know why.
3. matt will say almost anything we ask him right now or attempt to anyway except for the life of me i cannot get him to say sorry! i dont know why but he just looks at me like um i cant talk i dont know what you are expecting me to do.
4. he has decided he likes the word dangit but he must always bang his fist on something so he will run with his fist in the air till he gets to a table, couch,chair ect and then say dangit.
5. matt is really into baseball or actually all sports right now. the world series is on so we of course have it on in our room, josh changed the channel during commercial and matt got so made at him and kept say no dad baball baball dad till he turned it back, and he gets so into the game he will cheer and yell dangit (fist pounding all the while) he is so funny to watch of course i am a little partial:)

matt loves animals and is not affraid to feed them at all. we stopped to get gas on our way to hilton head and they had a petting zoo, yes at the gas station, so we bought some food for matt to feed the animals it took no coaxing on our part matt went right up and fed the animals there was goats, geese, an emo, donkey, bull, and a llama he fed the llama geese and goats but we ran out of food before he could feed the donkey but he did get to pet it.
For some reason these were added backwords but this is matts first time carving pumpkins. he didnt really like feeling the insides all that much but i think it is because it was messy and he doesnt like his hands messy:) but he loves putting his hand in the pumpkin now that it is cleaned he was so excited to light it too everynight. he is so much fun now that he is talking, he cracks us up all the time.

matt had so much fun playing in Utah between the jungle gym adn cousins and papa i had so many fun pictures and videos i had to just choose 2. the first video is from the temple he thought this trick was so cool he just kept climbing up and jumping. the second is at the airport on the way home he wanted to push he just kept saying either "mama push push" or "gaga push push" depending on who had the suitcase me or my mom. then if you asked if he wanted help he would shake his head no and matter of factly say "no" he was so cute. the first trip to the airport we had a long layover but lucky for us matt is obsessed with escalaters:) he just kept going up and down and down and down and up:) so much fun! we all had a blast in utah but were glad to come home and see josh, also to rest we played way to hard in utah:)

Easter was super fun this year matt actually was old enough to know what was going on. It started off with the easter bunny and his basket that he discovered, he pulled it down and everything fell out, that was super exciting for him he just jumped around ;) plus was excited to see that the "balls" as he calls them had candy in them. then we went to grandma adams for easter lunch and then hurried back to the hart get together where the boys had an easter egg hunt they caught on quickly and had so much fun matt was excited once more to find candy in the eggs which was very distracting while he was still trying to find eggs:) of course then he had so much sugar in him he took about an hour power nap and was up till 1:30 in the morning with a sugar high! :(

The other day the guys went to the park to play softball, we found a little play ground for wes and matt they had so much fun on the slides i was surprised because matt would go climb up the stairs and go down the slide by himself!

This one looks worse than it actually is i just had to post a picure so you could see how pitiful he looks:( he had really bad allergies down here and it gave him asthma and since you cant give him an inhaler this is what you have to do for babies. it was every 4 hours but only for 5 minutes. he didn't like it and would scream but by the end of it he would just sit there and sulk.

Matthew has decided to go into the family business. we are lucky enough to get to use the suites that the guys are working on for our living space and have the adjoining room to sleep in so we don't eat, sleep and live in the same rooms this time around. the thing about this is that the guys are in there working, matt loves this because he thinks he is one of the big boys:) he loves to be where the action is and "help". the last couple of days they have been laying tile and painting, so today matt decided to help grandpa in the room and this is how we found him no body showed him what to do this is just from him observing:) he also has taken the trowl and rubbed it along the carpet like grandpa does on the concrete he is such a big boy:) i however was not ready and could not get the "concrete" on tape. matthew does not always help so well he has gotten into the paint, dry wall mud and the wet concrete which had his foot prints and little bum imprinted for a short time lucky for us grandpa fixed it. he is not alone in this though wes loves the tools too i'm told he has learned to turn some of them on:) smart little boys!! i think we need to get them some newland shirts and let em go to work!

I love my little boy. but there is a reason we do not put the toilet paper on the rolls at our house:) most of you probably understand but i think the housekeepers in the hotel may not have children because they always put the rolls on for us:) and when matt makes that discovery he thinks it's the coolest thing ever as you can see by his smile:)
