The Box

I stuck Mattingly in an empty box we had and took him for a ride around the house. Boy did he like that. He was giggling up a storm. My legs burned from doing it. So that is our newest activity. Also I am posting a preview picture of his Easter hat. I can't wait to have him in his whole outfit! :) He amazes me everyday with all of the things he does. I am so thankful for him! (Despite him now starting to throw little tantrums.)

Grandpa Ron

babysat Mattingly yesterday while I had my coffee date with a good friend. They watched the birds outside and practiced walking and then napped. When I got back I took Mattingly for a quick ride in his cousin's car and he kissed the bear from grandpa too.

A little too friendly

Now that Mattingly is on the move, he loves to go after Melky and his toys. We were all in the office one night and Mattingly was a little close to Melky and Melky started to growl so I closed the door so it was only cracked. Mattingly figured out how to open it and started escaping down the hall. He saw Melky's toy and started full speed scooting down the hall for it. Once he got it he tried sticking it in his mouth. Oh boy are we in trouble now!

Monkey boy

I have been putting Mattingly in all of his monkey shirts and taking pictures b/c I am finally going to start his scrapbook and found cute monkey stuff for it. :)

He is starting to get up on his hands and knees on his own now! We're going to be in big trouble. Not that we aren't already b/c he drags himself along the floor. I wish our basement would get finished soon. Maybe I'll have Laura help me with that too! haha She came over Saturday to help me hang a few pictures. They weren't up to Mark's standards but hey they're up now!

Lately Mattingly has been wanting to eat everything in sight. He won't eat much of it but he'll try it! I gave him some ham yesterday; not a fan. I bought some dried apple bit and new crackers and veggie sticks. He likes all of that. Oh he ate almost a whole 1/2 grilled cheese last week. He chew on the chicken and beef I give him but doesn't swallow it. So no more of that for a while. Say Eric if you read this-I'd like the oatmeal recipe with the fruits in it, it's baked.

That's about all. I need to get ready for work now. (I got up early for some reason and had time to write)

The Weekend

Yesterday we took at trip to Stew Leonard's. That was a zoo! I thought it would be cool for Mattingly to see all the singing things in there that I had heard about. (it was my first time too) He didn't seem to care. He watched. No smile, no cry, just looked. I wish I lived closer so I could buy my meat there though. That dept. was amazing. Nice and fresh! I brought my camera and of course left it in the car. I did snap a picture of him in his carseat holding that frog that hangs down. He loves holding the tags to the hanging toys; especially while sleeping. It is so cute!

He started holding his own bottle apparently. Not all the time and it has to be just the right holding position, according to dad. :)

My parents gave Mattingly a standing toy that they had for when Eleanor was little. Now is a perfect time for him to have it so we took it home. He loves it. He thinks he's such a big boy. He laughs and doesn't cry if he loses balance and falls.

Oh also I bought an A-Rod shirt for him on sale in which he wore yesterday. I will have to find a Mattingly one. :) Well I did on ebay but I want to find a cuter one.
