20 Months!

We have a very busy month ahead of us. We have been living with Robert's parents for a year. We found a house we love and we close a week from today. We have a lot of work to do on the, some painting and new carpet. We are so excited, and a little sad, too. It is close to everyone so I will still be able to watch Ryan and our new niece/nephew two days a week! We are so thrilled for Teresa, Joe and big brother Ryan!
Matthew is growing by the day. Not only out of his clothes I thought would fit him for today (Thanksgiving) but in the things he does. The other day, he went into the drawer of Tupperware and pulled out a red, transparent lid. He sat on the couch and looked through the lid at the lamp. It was so cute and so funny. How does he know that if he looks through this, everything will seem red? I watch him everyday do something new. He loves to turn on the radio and dance. (Robert's dad doesn't like it as much, but tolerates it) When Robert gets home from work, Matthew puts his arms around his neck and tries to lift him up to take him to look at the turtle in the office. It is turning into their little routine when he gets home and I know it makes Robert feel special to do something everyday, just the two of them. I guess we are going to have to get a turtle for the new house.
Matthew is starting to become a picky eater. I think he is getting sick of his favorites but won't try anything new either. It gets very frustrating trying to find something he will eat. I'm sure it is just a phase. He is still a great sleeper, for naps and at night. We have a routine we have stuck to since the beginning and most of the time he knows when I get his milk that means he is going to bed.
He is such a good boy and Robert is such a great husband and father.
We are very fortunate to have loving parents and family. Robert's parents allowed us to live with them for a year and never asked for anything in return. I can't even express how much we appreciate what they have done for us and continue to do for us! <3
I can't post any pictures right now but will soon.
