Happy 6 Months to Matthew!
|Alyssa making Matthew smile|
We cannot believe it has already been 6 months since our sweet baby Matthew joined the world! Wow, it has been a steep and dramatic learning curve! Darren, Alyssa, Jackson and I love Matthew more and more every day. He’s a calm & happy baby. We love seeing Aly and Jax interacting with him. It's just too sweet!

Matthew’s 6 month check up was today. We are happy with our new pediatrician. One of my concerns has been Matthew’s excessive sweating (especially while eating) and our pediatrician recommended we do a stress test during our visit today to see if it is a cardio or a brain regulatory issue. Matthew passed the stress test, so it is probably not a cardio issue, but Matthew has developed a new heart murmur we are going to have looked at by a cardiologist. Other than that new finding, Matthew is in good health with his known uniquenesses.
Matthew’s going to be busy this next month—a renal ultrasound, urologist appt, craniofacial/neurology appt, cardiology appt, nephrology appt, in addition to occupational therapy, speech therapy and a visit with ECI…whew! We pray for good results from all of these upcoming consultations!! Thank you for the continued prayers for baby Matthew!
