I know you all have been waiting for a holiday update letter, but unfortunately since a few days after Christmas Marc's Grandma Dolores has been in the hospital. She has been fighting Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer for 3 1/2 years.

Unfortunately she lost that battle late last night. We'll miss you Mommy's Mommy (that's what Marc always called her).

December 30, 2008

Merry Christmas everyone. The cards were printed and a draft Update Letter was ready in mid-December. Marc got "almost pnuemonia" and a multitude of other stuff came up, which brings us to today. The cards will go out tomorrow and check back here in a week or two and "I promise" you'll have a Holiday Update Letter. I promise. I'll also put some more recent photos up on flickr as well.

Happy New Year!

Daddy posted my annual Christmas Letter - but you'll get a hard copy in the mail soon! Scroll way down, it's near the bottom of the left column.

December 17, 2005

Ok, I finally managed to grab Dad long enough to get him to put up photo albums from late August until now. Busy doesn't even come close to explaining my life right now (Mom and Dad are pretty busy too). What should you look for in the new photo albums...

Late August - Thrashers Select-a-Seat (my first time at the Arena), Centennial Park with my The Grandparents Matos, playing in the "Olympic Ring Fountain", Driving a Zamboni (with a dirtyish pircture on the dash), reading and doing Math problems.

September - My First Braves game (with Uncle Mike), My First Thrashers game, Still More Fun with Food, Atlanta Children's Museum, Meeting Ted Turner (no pictures, sorry). Daddy took movies of me at the Braves Game - look for them to be posted soon, too.

Early October - Thrashers Opening Night and Face-Off "meet and greet" event.

Late October - My new Winter Coat, Boo at the Zoo, Hopping on Pop and Sleeping with a Pretzel (don't ask why, I just wouldn't let go).

November - Cousin Ben's 2nd Birthday, Disabling the Baby Gate, Vacuuming, Look I'm a Spaceman (sorta), Haircut, Thanksgiving at The Grandparent Moseleys (reading with Great-Uncle Jim and Cousin Amy), and Dogs...

Early December - Hanging out at Home, Helping with the Christmas Tree and my new puppets.

December - Georgia Aquarium - The new Georgia Aquarium. My first visit and Whooooooaaaaaaa.... not my last.

Grandparents Matos deserve some photo credits (they're loving their digital camera- anything with a lower number is probably theirs).

Older Photo Albums

March 2005:

April 2005: I got a helmet to make the flat spot on the back of my head go away. It's nifty and has spaceships on it. I didn't like it at first, but I like it just fine now. I learned how to climb stuff, bang pots & pans and I tried to learn some calculus.

Cousin Christy's Wedding: We went to South Carolina for a big "to do". My dad's cousin Christy was gettin' hitched. These pictures are full of cousins, great-aunts and uncles and even a big metal fire hydrant!

May 2005: I'm getting ready for my first birthday! Mommy and Daddy got me a climber and I have lots of fun on it. I also had a battle with Cheerios and yogurt and lost! I got my first skinned knees this month. I also got to play with Baby Andy and my friend Karis came over for a few afternoons. By the way, I LOVE boxes!

First Birthday and Party: My first birthday was alot of fun. Alot of my friends and family came. We had cake and ice cream and presents and very tired grandparents. Dad even be-headed a bear cake! ...and what would a party be without playing some poker?

What's was new a few weeks ago?

June 4, 2005:

Wow, it's been busy. Finally my webmaster has updated my photo albums, check them out - there are descriptions of each album below the picture of my cake!

Ok here goes... After my ear tubes I started eating and eating and eating.... I am now 23 lb 11 oz (50-75%) and 31 inches tall (75%). For those of you keeping track, I gained 3 pounds in 5 weeks! I am non-stop-go now, there is no slowing me down. I am a hard-playing noise-making machine. Pots and Pans are my friends - the louder the better! Mommy and Daddy are going nuts!

I love kitties! It's my favorite word, but lots of things are called kitty - even Uncle Noel and new babies... I even follow directions now (like "bring me the ball) and put things away (where I want to).

April 28, 2005:

I got my ear tubes put in this morning - it took 2 minutes for me to fall asleep, 7 minutes for Dr. H to put my tubes in and 6 more minutes for me to wake up (all of 15 minutes). Hopefully my ear infections will go away now. .. and the best part is the plastic denture cup I found in the recovery room! I've got Daddy working hard on getting some new picture albums up, so look for them this weekend.

April 8, 2005:

<-- Since my birthday is just 6 weeks a way my parents have added a birthday gift list for my grandparents.

March 15, 2005

I know it’s been a long time since the last update, but Daddy has been really tired due to my ear infections. January through early March 2005 have been a lot of fun! I have 8 teeth now, I still drool everywhere, I’m so close to walking and I love climbing up on stuff!

January ‘05– I started ‘school’ 3 days a week. I get to play (and share germs) with other kids my age. I get to color and paint and make artwork for the fridge. It’s been a lot of fun (except the ear infections). Daddy calls me his Little Germ Mutation Machine.

In January I went to dinner with a bunch of people who smelled like garlic (Scalini’s), got to go see my Great Grandma Ramey in Macon, got visited by my Grandparents from Augusta, learned how to climb up on stuff and how to spit out medicine at very high velocities. Blueberries don’t go well with my complexion.

February ’05 - Ear infection continues… more medicine to spit out! I’ve upgraded to a whirlpool bath tub and man is it fun to poop in (I’ll leave it at that)! I got to go to Miss Heather’s birthday party and play some Hold’em poker, a Superbowl party to watch football and I learned that pushups are much more fun nekkid (that’s Southern for ‘without clothes) and on my changing table.

In early March, my Grandparents (Moseleys) made it back from the other side of the planet. I got to wear my Granddad’s Kangaroo hat, I look really good in it, he should let me borrow it more often. I like to climb up on furniture and into my wagon, I’m still not walking yet, but I’m very, very close. I have 8 teeth now (if Mommy and Daddy would only give me pizza…).

That’s all for now… I promise more updates more frequently!


January 8, 2005 - picture album menu reorganized. Christmas Letters were posted (see the bottom of the photo albums)

We had a big party with presents a week ago and then we went to Miss Heather's house to play poker and watch a giant peach fall from the sky.

Before the big party, we had a smaller party at Aunt Wendy's! It was nice, I got to play with alot of people.

Last week we went to the zoo and I got to see monkeys and pandas and flamingos.


December 19, 2004

New photo albums added Dec. 19, 2004- see below for more info.

I'm not quite walking yet, but I'm definitely cruising along the furniture. Sometimes I let go and forget that I'm not supposed to be able stand on my own. Oh yeah, I met Santa and he scared the heck out of me!

I have a couple of teeth now. They're sharp and I like to bite things.

Dad just put up a tree in the family room, looks like I'm going to have fun climbing on that!


I was 17' 7 oz (~70 %ile) and 28.5 inches (95 %ile) at my 6 month checkup!

I started crawling at 5 1/2 months and now I'm fast enough to chase the kitties, it's a lot of fun - for me!
