He developed some weird rash on his stomach this week. The doctor called it erythema multiforme....a sort of allergic reaction to a viral infection. Its getting worse but he doesn't seem bothered by it.
He is trying to bring carboard box hats into style :)
P.S. He didn't have pants on in these pictures because he refused to put them on this morning. He kicked and said "NNNOOO" over and over.
He sure is fun these days. He can communicate more with me and likes to help me do whatever task I am working on. I love my MATT!

So, drumroll please..... This year as a family we dressed up as the Teletubbies (thanks to the Fords for the awesome costumes!). Josh was the purple one, Tinkie Winkie. I was the red one, Po. Matt was the little baby in the sunshine that always laughs and giggles. Well, we got lots of strange looks and a good bit of chuckles from passerbys. It was fun to drive around in the costume and see other drivers do double takes. We went over to our friends, the Smiths, for a yummy dinner and more trick or treating. Their little kiddos had cute costumes and Matt really liked playing with them (and all their cool toys!). Then we came home to answer doorbell rings and pass out candy for another 30 mins or so. All in all, a fun day with the family.

We had a mini-emergency last Monday night. Josh was doing some wood carving and I startled him as I came outside to see him. His chisel missed the wood but carved into his thigh instead. We headed to the instacare where the 3 inch gaping tear got stitched back up (There are some pictures of it on our site but they make it look so small).Josh and I backpacked into East Shingle Creek Lake last weekend. It was as hard to find as it is to say. Luckily, we made camp before dark and Josh even had time to catch a few fish.
We went to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Dedication on Sunday which was such a neat experience. I love President Monson! We baby swapped with Ashlee and Mark (Matt for Blueberry). She is such a cutie pie, but she got a little angry when Josh tried to hold her.
Anyways, here is a link to a photobucket album. I can't get the slideshows to work anymore.

We met Josh at a park for a lunch playdate last week.
Last night, we went for a hike up to Lower Bell's Resevoir. It was completely uphill as we had to climb to the top of a ridge to where the lake was. Matt was a trooper. He loves being outside and does well in his backpack. He was mostly interested in throwing rocks in the lake. "Sorry Dad and Grandpa for scaring away the fishies." Matt told me to type that.
This morning Matt and I went to the Gale Museum in South Jordan as part of an Enrichment activity. The museum has an exhibit on the early settlers of this area. There were several ladies that came and half of them had small children. Matt was the least interested in the tour until we came to the hands on part of the museum. He was sad when we had to leave. He got to milk a cow, collect eggs from a chicken, catch fish, and drive an old car. He would have liked being a pioneer.

We walked around the Fehr lake, its was gorgeous and fun to be in the outdoors. Josh gets this like primal, manly energy when he is in the mountains. He wants to scout out the area, fish, climb around, basically anything but sit and relax (which is what I love to do on our backpack trips). He is the happiest guy in the world when he is outdoors.
Matt didn't sleep the best in his sleeping bag, didn't let him roll around easily. So we weren't very rested when the sun came up at 6am Friday. But we ate breakfast, and packed up for our hike to Shepard Lake. It was about another mile from our camp, but it was all downhill going (uphill coming back, ahhh). It was worth the effort. There was a waterfall that fed into the lake, which was significantly bigger than Fehr Lake. Josh fished for a bit and caught 3 or 4 brookies. It was so much fun for him, he hasn't fished in ages! Matt liked watching Josh fish and would point to his rod like he wanted to hold it and cast himself. Matt got to hold onto the rod when a fish was on the line and Dad pulled it in. Then Josh held the fish close so Matt could get a feel. Look at his poor, dirty hands in the picture. My baby loved the dirt soooo much! I could only wash and wipe those hands so much while camping. Anyways, we had a great first experience with Matt and backpacking. Who knows, there might be another one in store this summer for him!?!? P.S. Josh has been growing his mustache out for 2 weeks, a buddy dared him. (Thanks Mike!) So that is the reason his upper lip looks shady and dirty looking. It is gone now, WOO HOO!

Matt eats adult food spaghetti all by himself for the first time....what a mess!
Matt figured out he could throw all of his stuffed animals and blankets out of his crib. This is the first of such daily episodes. He was mad that I wouldn't pick him back up to rock him back to sleep after he woke up a few minutes into his nap...so to show me how mad he was he threw everything in reach (which is usually how he shows his temper). I thought this was so hilarious that I grabbed the camera and then he thought it was a fun game to throw things out. And of course, I picked him up and gave him love.This was Matt helping dad work around the house. Guess who Matt looks up to? (haha, cheesy joke)The headlamp was so much fun to wear, Matt had to have to see his cheerios the next morning.
We celebrated Rob's 30th birthday with his family and a game of kickball. It was a blast!
Josh and Matt after kickball. Matt has a hilarious expression and no, thats not sweat running down his forehead, its water.
We went to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House. It is a gorgeous temple and we are so blessed to have it within 2 miles of our house!
Matt helping dad water the flowers in the yard. He is such a good helper.
