Baby Matthews #5

For those of you who don't know already, we are expecting baby #5 December 3. It's all very exciting of course, but I haven't been feeling that great. This past weekend I had a migraine start that just doesn't want to go away. I also think I'm allergic to being pregnant. My allergies are SO bad. I wake up everynight barely able to breath and with a sore throat from post-nasal drip. Pleasant, isn't it? I'm now at the blessed stage where I constantly wonder what on earth I have done and how I was so stupid to let it happen in the first place!
But there's our cute little peanut sized baby. It was a relief to have an early ultrasound done. See the baby, have them measure the heartbeat (which was beating perfectly). I also love the doctor my friend here recommended and his staff, all of them are outstanding. So, we'll definately keep you updated, and hopefully it won't take me so long to post again!

Marbleworks from Discovery Toys

I got them this marbleworks set from Discovery Toys for Easter! They absolutely loved it! I thought we may have arguments because it was everyone's toy. They didn't really know how to deal with that. They spent the first week fighting and not being able to share, I finally got sick of it and took it away. When I finally gave it back they did a lot better sharing and playing together.
Emily and Benjamin play with the tower I constructed.
Here they are posing for the camera. Emily thought it would make the picture better to hold up a marble for display. You can't even see it, but boy do they love those marbles. For awhile Julia was pretending that they were her students! She would haul them around the house setting up classrooms for them.

Wrestling with Daddy!

Here's the Matthew's kid train. Poor Daddy!
It soon turned into to dogpile on Daddy. Ben got hurt in the tussle and came my way.
Everybody wanted to take a ride on Daddy the horsey!
