Airplane ride

Matilda was very good on her first plane ride.  Ziploc bags are a great thing.

Holidays in Michigan

New pictures are on hiatus while we spend the next two weeks here in sunny, warm Michigan.  Besides, everyone who follows the blog is playing with Mati in person!

Father daughter

Here's another cute father daughter pic of Matt and Mati.

This was taken at our pediatrician's office. We seem to take lots of photos while waiting for the doctor.

One more week

Matilda is very excited that Christmas is just one week away.

Although it looks like a sad face, we actually caught Mati in a sneeze. Gesundheit.

More sitting

This is one of the many photos we took for Matilda's holiday pic. It's not the winner as we wanted to show what was on her onesie.

As you can see, she's covering up and chewing on the part we wanted to show.

New diaper

Time for a new diaper. And a new outfit.

Look Mati

Sometimes both Matt and I take photos of Matilda at the same time as she can be that cute.

I didn't know Matt was taking pics of me taking pics of Mati.

4-month pediatrician appointment

Yesterday, Matilda had her 4-month pediatrician appointment. While waiting for the doctor, we listened to some music and took some photos. Thanks, iPhone.

Although we were a bit nervous for her next set of shots, she handled it like a champ. So much less traumatic than the 2-month shots.

Sitting Mati

Matilda now tries to sit up when in her rocker or car seat. She likes to lean forward from the reclined position.

Like all development, it's a work in progress as you can see by these pics.

Smile time

Following up the sad pic with a happy one.

Not all smiles

When Matilda is not eating, sleeping, needing to be changed, stretching, or drooling, she sometimes cries.

Most of the time, she's all smiles.

She is also now giggling. We are trying to get her giggles on tape.

Stretch & drool

Mati's onesie says, "Sleep, Eat, Change Me." It should also say stretch and drool.

More moose

Matt likes moose.

Therefore, Mati likes moose.

Holiday party

Matt and I enjoyed a night out at his holiday party at the California Academy of Sciences. While I was busy eating, Matt was being stalked by a leopard.

Thanks to Auntie Tiff for taking care of Matilda.

Single cappuccino

Matilda enjoyed a cappuccino this past weekend at the farmers market.

We much preferred her cappuccino heart to her previous heart.
