Mason Dylan
August 11, 2005

8-11-08:  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 ambulance).

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.

1-30-08:  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.

5-24-07:  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!

4-3-07:  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.  

10-6-06:  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!!!

8-11-06:  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 development.

6-16-06:  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 better, YAY!.

4-13-06:  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!

3-7-06:  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).

11-2-05:  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!

10-7-05:  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 big event!

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.
