one month

Notice the date--this post was started yesterday : )
Its hard to believe he's been here a whole month. At 2:18 this morning, Matthan turned one month old. He is growing so fast. And although he's getting heavier, I'm getting excited that he's getting bigger. He's smiled at me twice, but that was only under the perfect circumstances (just been fed, changed, and in a good mood). I am so looking forward to smiles "just because", not just perfect circumstances smiles. He's so adorable--I can't wait to see if that dimple that sometimes appears will show up when he smiles (I was so happy he was smiling, that I forgot to look at the dimple).

Lest you think that this will turn into a Matthan blog and you will never here about Aubie anymore, I'll tell you an interesting fact about her. Aubie's favorite show is Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
She especially loves the part of the show where they say, "Bus Driver, Move that bus!" But really, she loves the whole thing--how they help people, how I cry every time, how loud and obnoxious (but funny) Ty is. I think her favorite part is that we all watch it together as a family and though I am the only one crying, that we all are so uplifted by seeing these needy families being so touched.
Oh, and an Aubie quote for you : yesterday, when I was really down about something, I just sighed and said, "What am I going to do?" Aubie said, "Just bewax, Mommy. Just bewax."

Okay, I read this post to Uncle Steve and I seriously had to tell him what she meant by "bewax." I told him that's because he never does!

Matthan is so sweet looking. I do think he favors your mom when she was a baby...and Garrett, too.

"bewax" That's good advice for ya. From the mouths of babes, huh?

That's so funny Aunt Karen. Yeah, just tell Uncle Steve to "bewax, just bewax." Aubie says so.
Aubie has started saying "ya", just like you did in your comment, Josh. Everything is "I wanna help ya", "that'll be good for ya", etc. I think she's realized how grown up it sounds to say that.
Thank you Kevin for awarding my child with quote of the month! She will be so honored.
