Matthew is GINORMOUS!

Well, our little Matthew is no longer very little. We took him to his 6 month well check last week and he is now 19 lbs 9 oz! That is the 90 percentile for weight...he is also in the 95+ percentile for height though, so he really doesn't have that many rolls (except under his chin!). The nurse measured his head twice because she thought that it was such a big jump from the last check up. I just told her we just grow them big.

This was taken as we were waiting for Jay to buy our tickets to get into Hogle Zoo.

Cousin Johnny and Matthew...we love him!

Finally asleep, at least for a minute or until I try to lay him down. He has it all figured out...he'll sleep if I hold him, but unless he is really out, when I try to lay him down he wakes up and screams so we will pick him up again. Needless to say, we aren't getting much done around the house, but he won't be a baby forever right!

Showing off...sitting up. With all our tile floor, we don't put him down on it too much, but he likes to sit up on the soft bed and prove to us that he can. So cute!

Matthew is eating his baby food twice a day now, and even tried a little corner of a graham cracker and Ritz cracker yesterday...he thought they were the best thing ever! He keeps us busy and our arms are tired from lugging him around everywhere. We now leave the infant seat in the car when we go places unless we can put it in the's just too heavy. Matthew thinks he's pretty smart, sitting up, picking up things, able to talk...the kids are convinced that his first word is Mom or Ma, but I'm not sure if he knows that's me yet or if he is just babbling and trying to copy everyone. He is fun and definitely not starved for attention around here!

Hey Jay & Emily! This is Stacey (& Neil) Checketts. I just got your blog address from Sara McKee. Your family is beautiful! We always wonder where everyone is, and what they are doing now. I love being able to see friends blogs and catch up. Hope you are all doing well. Where are you guys living now? We are in Arkansas, working for Wal-Mart. Neil is the Sr. Director over food safety. It's been great for his career and for our family, but we'd love to move back out West, closer to our families. If you want to check out our blog, it's at

Take care and congrats on the new baby!

He really is ginormous! My favorite is the Superman shot of him sitting up - so great. I'm sad we're missing it!

Hi again guys. We could possibly stop by to see you on Sunday, July 13th, in the evening. We'll be in Logan visiting my parents that day, so we could stop and say hi before heading back to Brigham (where Neil's parents are). What is your phone number? That way we can call you when we get there, and get your address and all of that. You can email us at It will be fun to see you guys again!

Sorry to leave yet another message, but I forgot to tell you guys that Neil's brother, Jim (who Jay was also friends and roommates with) just moved back to the Logan area last August. Millville actually. They have a 2 kids, and have been in the Dallas, TX area for the past 10 years.

Good to see you this weekend and I'm glad to have found your blog! It's fun seeing how big your kids are getting these days. I still have to do a "double take" every time I look at Katelyn because I think she looks exactly like Merrilee did growing up! :) Well, I'll be sure to check back often to see all the updates in the Warnick Family!
