Mason is 3 years old today. He has changed so much.
He just potty trained in the last month. With the potty
training has come a new found interest in his penis. In fact, he
will tell you, or anyone about it! During his pictures he
stopped, grabbed his crotch, and told the photographer "look at my
penis". Mason is also about to start his first year of
pre-school, a Montessori modified school, which will be 2 mornings a
week. He is very muh looking forward to school. He is also
taking a tap dancing class, which he LOVES. He really
concentrates on the exact steps the teacher is showing him, and he
listens and follows instructions so well when wearing tap shoes.
He really likes the loud noises they make. He is still
interested in blocks, puzzles, cars, trains, etc. He also loves
Thomas the Tank, Pirates, Dinosaures and Lightening McQueen. He
enjoys playing with his friends, especially "Karen" (Karen is Nick and
JJ's mom, he actually likes Nick and JJ, but for some reason always
calls them Karen). He also enjoys his monthly visits to Lexi and
Emma's house, where he can see the bumb bumb truck (Lexi's toy
4-28-08: Mason is still growing like a weed, but now up, rather
then out! He is holding steady at 50 pounds. He still
enjoys playing with blocks, trains, cars and trucks. He is very
good at individual play and can entertain himself for a long time.
He is now also really into puzzles, and can figure them out very
quickly. He also like to "fix" lots of things. He enjoys
playing with his friends, whom he calls "his guys" and "his buddies".
He really likes to play with Ian (next door neighbor) and Colt
(he calls him My Colty). Right now he has a bit of a temper
(don't know how he got that), but is still as sweet as can be. He
now sleeps in a big boy bed (twin), complete with Thomas the Train
sheets. And, he spends most nights, ALL night there.
Mason is getting to be such a big boy! In size and age!
He is tipping the scales at 48 pounds now, and is the size of a 4
or 5 year old. He'll be a great football player! He's
talking up a storm, and his communication skills are really developing.
He is obsessed with trains, cars and trucks . He is very
much into organization of thing, lining them up, stacking, etc.
He loves to do art projects, read, and is getting really good at
numbers , colors and shapes.
Mason is getting to be such a big boy! He now weights 2
pounds MORE than Mia! His vocabulary is expanding, he is
becomming very social, and he is sucha sweet little boy. His best
friend is Lexi, and her little baby sister Emma!
Mason is now almost 20 months old. He is so big! He
weighs the same (if not more) then Mia, and is built like a football
player! He loves to climb, now on top of the dinner table and
anything else he can get on! He LOVES trains, cars, and balls!
He is ALL BOY.
Mason is really becoming a big noy now,. He's learning so
many new words. and will point and try to communicate to you what he
wants. He is very clear when he wants milk (his favorite) or
food. He's a pretty good eater, loves his fruit! Mason now
run around the house with Mia, they actually run laps around the
kitchen island. He also loves to climb, especially on top of the
coffee table. He now has 8 teeth and is working on some more.
He still is not very good with diaper changes! And sadly,
his favorite thing to do is watch TV!!!
Mason is 1 year old! This last year has gone by really fast
for the whole family. Mason is a full time walker now, and even
tries to run around the house. He's still into climbing,
unfortunatly! He does My Gym classes and for the most part likes
it (he takes it very seriously). He has a best little friend,
Lexi. They are so cute together. He's still a pretty good
eater and now drinks from a sippy cup (no more bottles in our
house!!!). At his 1 year appointment with Dr Chan he got a clean
bill of health and she was very impressed with his progress and
Mason is 10 months old now and has 6 teeth! He went through
a major teething, it was so much fun! He's also a full fledged
solids eater now. He loves fruit, pasta, cheese, and veggies!
He also has started waving and saying "bye bye". He loves
to play in the sandbox, the kiddie pool and go for stroller rides
(where he usually sleeps!). We have also taught him to go to
sleep on his own. We still get some crying every now and then,
especially with naps, but it is helping him sleep at night so much
Mason is 8 months old now! He is climbing up on everything!
Including the stairs, Mia's picnic table, the coffee table, etc.
The boy is part monkey!
He FINALLY has two teeth! Actually, two very small, very
adorable, very sharp little teeth on the bottom. He has also
started on finger foods, which he loves!
Mason is 7 months old now! We cannot belive how fast time
is flying by. He is sitting up, crawling, pulling himself up in
his crib, on the coffee table, etc. He is also a very good eater!
He has taken to solid foods really well. So far no teeth
yet, and he isn't the best sleeper any more (since getting over a
winter flu bug).
Mason is just about 12 weeks old. He is smiling so much
now, and has such a wonderful personality. He is very serious,
but bery laid back. The WONDERFUL news this month, Mason is
sleeping 8-10 hours a night!!! Mommy and Daddy are besides
themselfs with JOY!
Mason is now 8 weeks old. He is a really good eater, the
boy can eat and eat and eat! He is growing so fast. He
isn't sleeping very much, only about 3-4 hours in a row, so Mommy is
very tired. The combo of Mason and Mia is making Mommy and Daddy
both very tired, but it is very much worth it! Right now we are
working on getting Mason's baptism set up. So that is his next
9-1-05: Mason is
now 3 weeks old. He is such a laid back, wonderful little boy.
He is much more serious then Mia was at this age. We call
him an old man sometimes, because he looks and acts like an old man.
So far he is a good eater too, much better then Mia ever was! He is becoming a pretty good sleeper as well.
