Speaking of time flying, Matthew is already 6 months old! I can hardly believe it. He is such a joy to watch as he grows and explores new things, and flashes that adorable smile. While I am very thankful to have a part-time job, I really wish I could spend all day every day with him. He is now sitting up somewhat by himself, babbling and talking, making high pitched squeals (he especially likes doing this in public), eating solid foods, rolling all over the place, entertaining himself, reaching for and successfully grabbing everything he can get his hands on (I do not recommend holding a flight boarding pass in your hand while also holding him), charming everyone he meets, and drooling like a mad man as he cut his first tooth. He has begun to develop his own little personality, and lets us know when he likes or doesn't like something. Vegetables are definitely not his favorite thing! Check out the video below for parental entertainment and baby torture :o)
Brian and I are very eagerly awaiting next Tuesday when we find out where he will be completing his cornea fellowship! Check back next week for the news!

Matthew and Caleb meeting for the first time. About 10 seconds later Caleb tried to climb in the car seat with Matthew!
Dinner with friends at O'Charleys
Caleb and I are best friends :o)
Since Jennifer, Katie and I are all huge football fans, we had to put the babies in their gear and take a picture of all of them! Of course we all know who looks the cutest (Go Gators!)
Dustin and Casey got to meet Matthew also. Dustin enjoyed hanging out with Matthew and making him laugh.

Matthew really enjoyed watching his first Gator game. So far he is undefeated as a Gator fan!
Matthew also participated in his first golf outing! His grandparents were very proud of him for making it all 18 holes! He did sleep from hole 7 to 16, but he was very good!
We love making our little man smile!
Four months old! Wearing my first pair of jeans too.
I just rolled over for the first time and am so proud of myself!

We can't believe how big our little boy is getting already!
We were very excited to have Brad come visit us at the end of August! He got to meet Matthew for the first time, and then he, Brian and Jim went on a guys trip for the weekend.
While Brian was gone on his trip, Cherie came to visit! I was so excited to meet Tyler, and we can tell that he and Matthew are going to be great friends :o)
Matthew really enjoys his play mat, and has become quite good at squealing and laughing while playing!Even though you can't tell from this picture, Matthew has started to enjoy hanging out on his tummy!

One of the things Matthew has enjoyed lately is playing on his mat. He especially likes the light-up ball that you see in the video. While we have found that the sound the ball makes can be rather annoying after 20 minutes, at least it's not a song that gets stuck in your head!
He has also begun to smile and laugh recently! We're not sure he always knows what he's doing, but he seems to in this video.

Brian and I have been making the transition into parenthood the past few weeks. We have learned that babies can fart louder than adults, sometimes they cry for no good reason, and they make really funny faces when they're sleepy. While we are both tired, we are enjoying our new roles and our little man. When we went to the pediatrician on Friday he weighed 9 lbs 12 oz, which was 11 oz more than he was a week ago! Needless to say, he has the eating thing down. It was also great to have my mom here this past week. She was a tremendous help with things around the house, and had the magic touch to make Matthew stop crying! Here are some pictures from the past few weeks.
