So having kids is the best and hardest thing in the world. I don't know what I would do without him but dang does parenting put you through the ringer. I feel about fifty and probably look older than that with all the sleep deprevation but again LOVE IT!!! So as a parent you always worry right? Well a couple weeks ago Matthew got a little dot in his eye and we took him to the doc's and they said no biggie probably just a mole or something. To make a long story short , after more appointments we discover that it's some kind of foreign object that needs to come out so within twenty four hours Matthew was put under and this tiny thing was removed. Worst day ever. I can't imagine having to do something like that for something more seriouse and I know people do it allthe time but man I was a little stressed out. All is well now and the actual surgery only took minutes. Poor little man, He sure hammed it up though we dressed him in his UNM scrubs like his dad which was appropriate cause his surgery was at UNM.


it's no secret that Matthew love food but we did discover that he absolutely loves pickles. In fact if he's ever in a bad mood i stick him in his chair and give him a pickle, its like magic.

Matthew at seven months

So I know it has been forever cause the last pics I put up are of Matthew at three months and these are seven months. Whats really sad is he's actually already eight months so I'm a little behind. He's getting so big so fast It is incredible. I can't remember him as a tiny baby, and I can't believe how much he's changed. He is crawling around the house and pulling himself up on anything and everything. In the last few days he's also been letting go of the furniture and just standing. It is insane. I'm not ready for the walking yet.
Kurt and I haven't been up to a whole lot. He had some extra time this summer during his internship so we took a trip to Ohio to visit his relatives. .Matthew had some fun and excitement while we were there and he started eating real food so as you can see made him chewier and pretty dang happy. Other than that we've been trying to catch up on all the movies and dates we've missed out on since he's been in med school. He'll be done with the lecture/class portion of med school in December then he'll take boards in February. His third year starts in April I can't believe how fast the time is going.
Matthew's a pretty happy kid in general as long as he's being entertained and well fed of course. He loves the zoo and swimming. He's also pretty vocal, He Say's mama, Dada, hi and bye and waves. There may be a few other words we just don't quite know what they mean. He defiantly knows what he does and doesn't like and he lets us know. He growls to it's pretty funny. I'm always entertained:)

All in all motherhood is keeping me extremely busy, but I love it. I wish I didn't have to work on top of it but I think I would miss my job and all my clients. I love what I do but I also don't want to neglect Matthew at the same time. I don't know how people do both full time. It's pretty rough. On a lighter note this is an awesome park to take the kids to. It's over by Coronado mall, and It is really clean and new. That's random I know but I was pretty impressed. These pics were taken by a client friend of mine Tina Roberts. She did a great job so if anyone needs any pics I've got the number. She does family pics to.
