This post will be epically long because I've been taking a lot of mediocre phone pictures and not posting regularly. Catherine's on the mend but we've been taking it easy around the house and getting outside as much as possible with some nice days.

Matthew: "No. Ball. Throw Balls."
Me: "It's 5 o'clock somewhere right?"
And some random videos. Here's Matthew explaining what happened to his red balloon and how it popped:
And if you ever want to experience a day in the life of the Watsons, just put turn your speakers way up and set this to repeat about 35 times a day.
And last but not least Matthew "reading" The Very Hungry Caterpillar. For 2 years Matthew showed no interest in this book, which was a slight tragedy because we somehow ended up with about 7 copies. However, now it's one of his favorites:
