Video for Mom

Below is a video that we've been trying to make for some time now for Erin's Mom. For whatever reason, Matthew doesn't like to smile for the camera. The last couple of weeks he has been focusing in on people and objects and responding with big smiles and laughter. We first discovered this new phenomenon while changing his diaper in his bassinet; he giggled so hard at the three sheep that circle above his head to music that is both off-beat and flat that we had to share it.

The video I recorded just before this one included the sounds of him filling his pants. I laughed so hard, I almost filled mine. Erin vetoed that video in hopes of appearing less crude (yet she still let me write this post). Matthew enjoyed the making of this video so much that he soaked through the chair he was sitting in.

Ahhh, Erin! I love your Mommy voice. It exudes happiiness!

Ditto on the voice...it's so funny how we slip in to the "mommy" role so naturally.
He is getting so big!! What a cutie. Is his diaper rash all gone?

Ugh, I hate that voice! Is that really how I sound? He is getting so big - 12 pounds already and wearing 3-6 month clothes! (Although part of that is because we moved ti the next size diapers and they are huge!) The rash still is not gone, but it is much better and doesn't bother him as much. Phew!
