Joey with...

I can't believe I haven't added anything in so long!! Life has just been too exciting for us!! Since our last posting we've had Matt's entire immediate family here for a visit, explored more around the bay, Matt had his first solo (paid!!) photo shoot, we've had friends over for dinner, gone to friends' for dinner, left Josiah for the second time (:-( for a movie :-) and joined a gym! It's been a busy 2 weeks!

Matt's been working really hard juggling (about 3) jobs. He has a job at an electronics store here in town, he is working hard on studying and finals for school and getting the photography business up and running. Check out his website www.mattbeardsleyphoto.com We're using craigslist (of course) to advertise the business and people are definitely interested. He has appointments filling this and the next 2 Saturdays for potential wedding clients.

Joey is quickly developing a more and more smiley personality (and, thankfully, a schedule). He wakes up around 9 and then after eating and playing a little (smiling at things) it's back to sleep for about an hour and a half. Then he's up until his afternoon nap (again about 2 hours) and it's back to bed at 8. There is nothing quite like getting him up from a nap when he is happy and well rested and smiles so BIG!! He has a new seat (like a Bumbo) which we'll try to post some pictures of later. He also got a new swing (right when Aaron and Sarah visited) from craigslist. He's happy and loving life and holding his head up well. He smiles easily now and although he isn't reaching for things yet... it seems like it is just around the corner.

So, without further delay, some pictures...

With Aaron and Sarah... (If he can learn to crawl at a miraculous 5 months maybe they'd let him be their ring bearer.....??)
