My First Mother's Day

And what a wonderful day it was! We started the day off with Matthew's dedication at church. Next, we headed over to the Graffes for a family BBQ. The sun was shining (for part of the day anyway) and my boy was the hit of the party!
My sweet family. We look so spring-ish in our bright colors!
Matty and Grandma.
What a face! Check out those chompers ... eight of them in there. If only he could figure out how to use them ...

Just For Fun

Like father like son! Except Matt prefers his plain while Joshua enjoys his brownie-batter covered. This kid spends way more time playing with kitchen utensils than he does with actual toys.
I have been trying to sneak veggies in to our food. Why? Well, you just can't eat too many veggies, plus I have been doing most of my shopping at Costco and I can only puree so many foods in one week. So far Joshua approved of wheat germ and almond coated chicken, cauliflower scrambled eggs, butternut squash baked eggs, and sweet potato hot cocoa. He did not like spinach/broccoli/pea meatballs or carrot/sweet potato tomato sauce. These spinach eggs I didn't even bother showing him; I knew they wouldn't pass his test. But Jackie and I enjoyed them!
Matt is looking a bit girly with his long hair. I try to cover it up with hats, but his sweet spirals just sneak out the bottom. I know you Hardwicks are wanting it to stay long, but the Grahams say cut it. I don't know how much longer I can suppress the Graham in me!

Escape from diaper change! For a while Matty would stay on his back if you laid him down - sort of like a turtle. That phase is over and he is off and crawling before I can finish putting his diaper on! I just love how his tushy looks in his cloth dipe. And check out those thighs!! I could eat 'em up!
