Photo Coloring

I found a cool site online where you can download their program to change photo's from color to black and white, and whatever you want back to color again! It is the Color Select Studio at Loads of fun. Here are my first three tries at it. Can't wait to create more!

Into the tub for clean up!

Matthew tried spaghetti for the first time problems eating it at all! He scarfed it down. The bath came right afterward!

"Matthew had a little lamb..."

Mmmmmm, this is good!

Give me more Grammy!

On Friday evening we went to Glen Ella Springs Inn for a fabulous dinner. I ordered the lamb, and of course Grammy insisted that Matthew have some too! He LOVED it! He couldn't stop nawing on the bone. I guess I know what I need to fix now at home...

January GA Trip

Mommy and Matthew!

We had a fun few days visiting family in GA. We stayed with my parents for a couple of nights, then with my brother and sister-in-law for a couple. On Saturday we had a blast going with them to see the Body Worlds exhibit in down town Atlanta, shopping and a great meal. Papaw and Grammy were the gracious baby sitters! It was nice to have a date day. Matthew was also cute with his cousins Haylie and Hope.

11 months old

Here I come, as fast as I can...

Helping daddy in the kitchen...
Posing for Valentine pics...

Today Matthew is 11 months old! It is hard to believe he is almost one year. In the past month he has learned to crawl, and climb up on everything! He loves to explore everywhere, especially the "off limits" areas and things. We are slowly giving him more table food, and trying (without much success) a sippy cup instead of the bottle. He is so happy with his new found mobility.

Haircut Video

First Haircut

Handsome dude!

Matthew had his first "real" haircut today. (I have snipped a few pieces here and there before...) He did great! He sat like a big boy and wandered what in the world was going on. Our friend Kim Berry did the honors. We still can't believe how good he was. He looks like a handsome young man now!

I need a haircut!

More often than not lately, Matthew has awoken in the morning with some niffty "do's". It was time for his first haircut since it was uneven, shaggy, and long.

Baby Sledding Part Deux

I've fallen, and I can't get up! (Christmas Story movie)

Well, more snow means more sledding! Here are a few cute pics of Matthew enjoying it again.

Sledding Video

A quick video of Matthew having fun sledding...he had a ball!

Daddy pulling Matthew
This is fun dad!

Family photo...not bad for Chris taking it with his free arm!

Grandma and Grandpa Doherty were nice enough to get Matthew a baby sled for Christmas. We finally went out today to use it since we got a little snow yesterday. (All the tons of snow we got right before Christmas was either rained away or melted!). He had a ton of fun. He loved going fast when daddy pulled him.

Crazy After Bath Hair

He'll shoot us when he's older, but his hair after a recent bath was so funny we had to get the camera!

Face Book

OK, so I too have caved in to the pressure of friends and joined Face Book. Chris and I both. We were constantly getting emails such as "Are U on Face Book?", or "I am now on Face Book", etc...
I don't know how faithful I will be in always updating it or checking for updates on "friends", but I'll try. I did take the time to down load a few photos. I do have a 10 month old crawler to attend to, and this blog....ha...

Update: You can find me under Beth Selzer Doherty (so as to not confuse old friends who knew me by my maiden name...) I have become a facebook junkie! Lots of fun connecting with everyone... Chris and I had a good laugh when we had to confirm we were in a "relationship" with each other...our first internet marriage! ha!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to one and all. I have a sick baby right now, so I went to bed early last night. Missed most of the festivities, but had some good food at my sister-in-law's house. We had an appetizer themed evening...yummo! He seems to be slightly better today. Poor guy! What a way to start off the new year.
Any how, many blessing to everyone for a safe, fun, and joyous 2009!
