Matthew is 20 months old!

On Sunday Matty turned 20 months old. I believe I forgot his 19 months update, oops. Here's a quick update about what he's doing these days.

He loves to dance, play with trains, and blow raspberries on any exposed bellies so keep your shirt down! He still loves Star Wars, playing outside, and taking a bath. He likes the pool as well but does not want anyone to hold him in the water. This is not great because even with a life jacket on he can't keep himself upright in the pool. So he screams a lot and tries to get away.

He is learning more words, including dog, cat, puppy, potty, hat, Grandmom/Grandma and Granddad/Grandpa, and he's even said Nate and Nathan a few times! He's also learning to count because today during a game of hide and seek, I started counting and after I said one, he immediately said two!

He is a shadow to his brother and very much wants to do whatever Nate is doing, and wherever he is doing it. This means Matty wants to sit in the same chair with Nate, follow him into the bathroom, and of course play with whatever is in Nate's hands. This is frustrating for Nathan but he's working on realizing that Matty is not trying to annoy him but just wants to be with him.

Here he is lounging in the media room and reading a Star Wars comic.

Panning for treasure

Emma is visiting her with grandparents in Lindale this week, so I decided to take the boys to a little treasure hunting activity at Lake Travis. A boat rental place sells bags of sand and kids can pan in water for rocks and minerals.

Nate has his first find!
