Saturday

We celebrated Mother's Day with Scott's mom today and dined at a local favorite. Matthew ate a whole breakfast burrito! I'm not talking a baby-sized burrito...I mean a size that Scott or I would eat as a meal. OK...he didn't eat a portion of the tortilla or a tiny bit of the hashbrowns that were overdone, but that is only because I didn't give them to him. However, he did also eat a container of baby food vegetables. And when he was finished, he came after my sandwich!

It was a beautiful Saturday! And, the best news ever....Matthew actually slept today! His first nap was an hour and his second an hour and fifteen minutes!!! GLORIOUS!!!!! I started painting a portion of hallway off the foyer and got the whole thing finished. I wanted to go with something bold...something daring...something that screamed, "Live life to the fullest!", so the color I picked is called "Natural"...and is basically a dark off-white...yeah, pretty bold and daring, huh? Haha...that cracked me up.

NEW PHOTOS are HERE...click on the "Saturday" album.

Wow, that boy can pack away the food, no? But hey, if it leads to a good, solid afternoon siesta, then so much the better!! Ah, the bliss of naptime! ;)

Yeah for a sleeping baby. I'm learning to appreciate that more and more with a newborn in the house.

By the way, I have an update on my blog. Plan on adding pictures this week. (during nap time) :)

HOORAY for Mateo!!!! Good job, dude!! I bet he was so much happier after sleeping that well! I bet YOU were so much happier...!!!! Yes, glorious is definitely the word. :)

Maybe you should buy him those breakfast burritos EVERY morning!!!!! Haha!

You crack me up on the paint color, girlfriend. Well at LEAST it's not white. You just be glad I don't live around there or I would be sneaking in and painting the hallway red!!!

Love,
Rebecca

Hooray for M and Mom!

You really made me laugh with the color choice....I'm right there with you, girl! After 10 years of living in our house, the most I've ventured to do with wall color is a pale yellow, called butter cookie (for the kitchen of course;-) and 'sagey' green called coastal fog for the family room. Definitely nothing too dramatic. The rest of the house is an off white of sorts with white trim! Hey it goes with everything, right?

I have to do a better job at keeping up with your blog....even if I miss just a few days, I feel like I have some major catching up to do!
