He's is really getting serious about this growing thing! He had a growth spurt since 12 months! At the pediatrician appointment last Friday he weighed in at 20lbs 10oz and they recorded his height at 29 inches. He's in the 5th percentile for weight and height and the 10th for head circumference. (Wonder who he gets that from! LOL) He's now tall enough to reach the 3rd shelf (where we keep the fruit snacks) and he can pull himself up onto the couch.
Matthew is very aware of himself now and loves to "help" whenever he can. Why, just the other day he helped Gramma with her newspaper!
Matthew is getting to be very communicative. He can sign "cookie," "more," "please," "plane" (he signs that one whenever he hears one of the jets fly by from the airforce base near our house), "all done," and "cheese" on a regular basis. He knows a few more, but doesn't use them often. He's getting much better at his verbal skills as well. One of his favorite things to do is tell my brother Jeff "BOP."
And because I can't think of anything else to say right now, please enjoy some pictures. :)
