Rice Cereal

This was Matthew's first reaction, but he really took to it and gobbled it all down.

Spencer & Matthew

I know we are posting a lot of pictures of these two, but they are the ones home with me all day. Matthew went to his 4 month well check and we are growing a giant! The nurse measured his length twice because she couldn't believe it could be right - he was almost 27" long (95+% for his age). He also weighed in at 16 lbs. 6 oz. (80%). He is very "talkative" now, loves it when his brothers and sister interact with him, and tries to pull away from your support when sitting on your lap. He likes to look around and hold his toys, too. Matthew was sleeping through the nights most of the time, but has reverted back to getting up once or twice again, usually just when I have fallen asleep...we're hoping it's just a phase.

Easter March 23, 2008

For those of you who don't know, I come from a very large family. Three years ago, Jay and I were the only couple of the 7 married children not to have a baby that year and my oldest brother and wife had twins. This year is ending up being similar with Josie, Jonny, Noah, Matthew, Alleyah, Chloe, and two baby girls yet to come (so far).

Above pics: Our Family (not a great pic, but we take what we can get these days), Spencer and his cousin Molly who is just one month younger, Matthew and Katelyn, and Matthew sandwiched between Jonny and Noah. It was fun to be together...all of my siblings were there except Rich and Shauna & family (Rich is in law school in Omaha and Shauna is expecting their 3rd April 14th.)

Egg Hunt

We carried on the Warnick egg hunt tradition at home since we were going to Kamas for my brother's twins baby blessings on Easter Sunday. Everyone had to find two dyed eggs with their name on it. Jay helped Matthew find his. Katelyn and Spencer found their eggs easy enough, but Logan had to look and look. He even enlisted our neighbor's help. We finally told him when he was getting hot or cold.

St. George

We decided to get out of the snow for a few days and go with Jay to the Parks and Rec show in St. George March 17-18. Monday it was only about 50 degrees, but we were at the park in our short sleeves, shorts/capris, and sandals freezing in the wind (except Spencer - as you can see he still had his coat on!). I found it humorous that just because we were in southern Utah we felt we had to pull out our summer clothes even though with the same temps a week or so before at home in Logan we were still wearing long pants and jackets. Tuesday was was in the 70's...unfortunately it was the day we had to go home and we watched the temperature fall more than 30 degrees in the car on the way home. It was a quick trip, but we were able to run around outside, go to two parks, go swimming (we thought the kids were nuts!) and play minature golf at the fun park. It was just what we needed to get us through until spring decides to come to northern Utah.

Ready for Church - March 16, 2008

I never realized how much harder it would be to take pictures of four children instead of 3. When I did finally get Matthew looking the other kids were looking at him, or moving (so they were blurry), or laughing. This was the best we could do (of about 20 pictures).

These pictures were just too funny...I had to post them! What a face!
