Happy Mother's Day to Karin's Mom and Jordan's Mom. We definitely wouldn't be who we are and the kind of parents that we are without your influence. We hope you've had a great day! Love you tons!
I decided to make a layout of all of Matthew's current favorite things since he's less than a month away from turning 2. I thought we would have a few things on our list and ended up with a huge list. It's so fun to see kids grow and change. We are so blessed to have him in our lives and I feel lucky that I get to be his mom. He's definitely showing his independence right now and wants to do things his way so he gets his way when it's no big deal, sometimes it has to be our way, and other times we compromise. The one thing I do try and do is make sure that he knows why we are telling him no to something.
In case you can't read the text:
-Favorite foods: chicken nuggets, gold fish, figs (thanks mom-seriously), protein shakes, peanut butter, milk, water
-Movies and Shows: Meemo (Nemo), Monsters (monsters inc.), monkey (curious george), mickey mouse clubhouse
-Comforts: beebee (binky), lion chair, bankie (blankie), beebo (belly button, which he loves to play with and loves his tummy)
-Playing: outside, puzzles, ball, blocks, chase, car
-Books: goodnight moon, goodnight gorilla, sandra boynton books, who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?
-Songs: ABCs (w/leapfrong fridge magnets), Here come the 1,2,3s CD, Down on the Banks of the Hanky Panky, 5 Little Monkeys
I also decided to create a little ABC book for Matthew to have at church to try and help us through sacrament meeting. I downloaded the little characters in a kit and created the pages. I printed 4x6 pics and slid them into a cheap photo holder. We'll see how it works in about an hour and a half.
