When Matthew comes home from school these days, he bounces into my room.

 

"I washed my hands! Hand over the baby!" he announces. Or, "I need your phone to take a selfie wif my brudder" (He's ALL about the selfies these days). After all, he's the big BIG brother now.

 

He thinks he ought to be able to carry Michael around "yike Elizabef" and is dying to show that he's capable so needs to be watched very carefully. So far we let him hold his brother by himself, but only when sitting down and only under supervision. He loves holding him for about twenty seconds or something interesting happens to capture his attention, at which point he's a bit too inclined to dump the baby and bounce away. Needless to say he's not going to get to cart Michael around unsupervised.

Pastor Michelle came by today to meet Michael. I was feeling slightly better and actually made it downstairs

Our Wednesday schedule involves Elizabeth going to piano, then eating supper at karate before her blue belt class. So this is why she happened to be around during the black belt class immediately before hers. They were missing a person needed for doing their throws and things. Sensei Cody asked her whether she'd like to fill in. Of course she would! She had a big grin as she learned how to be tossed on the floor (and how to toss others). She looks forward to getting to go to this class all the time.

 

There are bonus Grandma H with Michael and Michael and his sibling fan picture photos in here, because let's face it, the baby is the main attraction around here at the moment.

You know I was not feeling good when I had two sets of visitors (Dave, Karen and the kids, and Heather and Andre) and didn't feel well enough to greet any of them. In fact, I do not think that this has ever happened before to this extrovert. I just sent baby down and stayed in bed whimpering and wasn't even slightly tempted to have anyone up to visit.

Matthew got a stripe on his yellow belt! He was pretty proud of himself. I haven't got a great sense of whether he likes karate or not. If you ask him after class, he wants to go back "right away!" or "I have to go tomorrow for sure!". But before class he is all "let's skip this class and go next time". Mom and Dad think that the extra physical activity and discipline building is particularly useful for this rambunctious little boy, so he's stuck with it for the moment.
