Sorry we have been gone . . . .


We have been BUSY! Well, as busy as a 3 month old can be... Did I just say 3 months? Yes, Matine John Howell will be THREE MONTHS old on August 11th...

She is very interested in reaching for things, looking at toys, playing with mom and dad, and generally observing EVERYTHING. She loves to roll to her side, kick her legs, bathtime, naptime, diaper changing time, walks, friends, and hiking.

As seen in the foreground of the previous picture, Sophie the Vulli European giraffe/chew toy (apparently she is ALL the rage in baby land). Matine is hip of course, so she loves her. She is also showing her worldly side by listening to Lullaby Renditions of Pink Floyd and Bob Marley each morning.

She has been a trooper lately... continuing to "go with the flow" and blend perfectly into our little crazy (stress the crazy) family and life.

Her eyes seem to be getting bigger and brighter everyday . . .

And her smile... More smiles and coos and laughs every single second.

This week we had our "2 Month Check-up", but really at 3 months... She got her shots and general "looking over." The gal was 60th percentile for weight (12.8 lbs) and in the 90th percentile for height (24 in)! We have a long legged gal! Dad will be so proud.

I have much more to blog about... hikes with friends, parties, horse pack trips, and of course, Uncle Clark's visit (going on now)... Stay tuned!

I've been missing these updates! I can't believe she is already 3 months old!

And I LOVE the new photo at the top.

BTW...I was showing my sis your sweet blog and she recognized your bro. She's dated Jess Royall for 4 years and totally knows Clark from OSU and from Jess!

Such a small world!
