Matthew & Daddy on New Year's Eve.

13 1/2 lbs.! This morning was Matthew's weigh in and bath day.

Matthew has just about outgrown his baby bathtub.

Matthew and Mommy play Patty-Cake.

Matthew and I watched a little TV after breakfast today.

I love his happy little face.

Look how well he holds Keniki's "Hospital-made" rattle. The toys hanging from the arch are catching his interest now as well.

Aunt Gabrielle, Uncle Keith, cousins Dillon & Daniel all stopped by to visit Terri and Matthew today. Here, Aunt Gabrielle holds Matthew while Uncle Keith feels his new teeth.

Matthew can almost sit up on his own.

These are the last two faces I see before going to work each day.

Matthew had a doctors visit today. Dr. Reyna is the surgeon who installed his G-tube and wanted to check the sight.

Mommy checks Matthew's button prior to Dr. Reyna's check-up.

Matthew is getting very good at reaching for objects and our faces.

Matthew loves his bouncy seat. He kicks his legs and bounces his feet off the ground.

Merry Christmas!

Grandma Wright couldn't wait to greet Matthew on Christmas Day.

Uncle Keith and Aunt Gabrielle welcomed Matthew at the door to their beautiful home. Notice the antlers on his little red hat.

Mommy snuck in some cuddle time as well.

These bells were attached to one of Matthew's gifts and he could not take his eyes off of them.

Grandma Wright and Daddy help Matthew open his gifts. How long until Matthew sends the wrapping paper flying in the air himself?

Grandma Wright and Uncle Keith show Matthew his gifts.

Uncle Keith & Aunt Gabrielle bought Matthew this bouncy chair and he loves it!

First thing this morning I got Matthew dressed in his Christmas outfit.

Shortly Before opening gifts we snapped this picture. Terri says Matthew will overtake my enthusiasm in 1-2 years.

Merry Christmas and God bless everyone!

The only thing missing from this picture is a TV remote in his hand!

Matthew is enjoying his play time. He sits up on his own and reaches for toys.

After play time, Matthew slept...

...and slept.

Here is a close-up that Mommy took today.

Look how well Matthew can hold himself up! He is surrounded by love and toys.

Matthew was featured in a local newspaper earlier last week. Click here to view the article.

These four darling pictures were taken this morning after the busy morning-meds/feeding time had passed.

Here is a photo showing two of several teeth coming in. No wonder Matthew gets cranky at times.

A month ago Matthew would cry inconsolably when placed on his stomach. Mommy has remained vigilant and now Matthew stays calm and works on his little chest muscles each morning. Three cheers for Mommy!

Mommy and I gave Matthew a bath this morning. Prior to his bath he weighed in at a wopping 12lbs. 6 ounces! Mommy takes the time to put the teddy bear towel in the oven to warm it before he comes out of the baby bath tub.

The King Trio paid a pre-Christmas visit to Dr. Nakamura, Matthew's Pulmonologist (lung doctor) today. Prior to his exam, Matthew is entertained by his Mommy.

It warms my heart to see what a happy boy Matthew continues to be even with all he has been through.
