Are you sick of me saying this month has been my favorite? Well I don’t know how it’s possible, but each day just gets better than the last! I mean, there are some rough days where Mason has been constantly whining, which I would have sworn was due to teething but no teeth have come through yet. But I just can’t get enough of this little guy. His personality comes out a little more every day and he has us cracking up all day long. He learned how to crawl a week and a half ago and has already moved on to trying to climb all over me all the time. Today he stood by himself long enough for me to turn and grab my phone, snap some pictures and take a short video until my phone said I was out of storage, which happens every day, I take too many pictures and videos of him I guess. Just the past couple of days he has seemed to understand what a kiss is and now gives me those big, slobbery, open mouth, long kisses (like 3-5 seconds). They are kind of gross, if you ask my sister Courtney she will say they are nasty, but I think they are so sweet and they make my heart burst. We love that he is starting to show more affection. He snuggles into us and even will reach for Mark over me sometimes. I’m already dreading the day Mason thinks Mark is cooler than me, haha. He’s obsessed with sucking on my hair, it’s disgusting. He loves the water! I think his favorite time is bath time. Today I took him swimming and he splashed the whole time. He wanted nothing to do with me, he just wanted to face the water and splash. He loves when I turn around at red lights in the car and play peak a boo, he giggles so loud! When you tickle his feet he plays along and pretends like its really ticklish and kicks his feet and laughs. He likes to watch Leo eat and finally went for his food bowl and grabbed a handful of cat food. Luckily I was right there and he didn’t get any in his mouth.
As each month goes by and I write these little updates for me to remember these little details in the future, I get a little sad that it’s going by so fast and my little baby isn’t a baby and he’s crawling and will be walking soon. But at the same time, each month is more fun than the last and it’s so fun to watch Mason grow and learn new things. I am so grateful that God sent this sweet, loving little boy to our family. He brings so much happiness to us. I don’t know if life gets anymore perfect than this.
These monthly pictures are getting hard to take! I can’t get Mason to sit still, look at me and smile! I need an assistant.
Standing!!!! Granted, he is standing against the chair but he’s not leaning back on it…
