Yesterday Mason turned 2 months! His little personality has come out a lot over this month, and we love it. He’s so sweet and easy going. He started giving us intentional smiles at week 5. He makes us work for this smiles though, I sound like such an idiot trying to get him to smile and he holds out for a while. I sometimes think he’s just trying to see how stupid he can make me sound before he pities me and gives me a big gummy smile. He also nails his expressions with his eyebrows, it kills me!
He’s gotten nice and chubby this past month and his hair is coming in. He’s a round fluffy butterball right now, it’s fantastic!
A couple of days ago we got our first bathtub smile, so I guess it’s safe to say he finally decided that he likes bath time.
He’s now really good at following our voices and finding who is talking. As soon as Mark walks in the door after work Mason gets so alert and looks around the room for him.
Mason has recently discovered his voice and babbles to us and himself. A few days ago he woke up and instead of crying he just laid there talking to himself. It was so cute!
He’s found the tv and loves to watch the colors and movement on it, it’s hilarious. He gets so mesmerized by it. And yes, a couple of times I have sat him down in his swing to watch “Doc McStuffins” so I can try to get a shower in. I’m a bad mom!
We blessed Mason the Sunday after Thanksgiving at 7 weeks. It was beautiful and we were so lucky to have so many family members be there. Mark blessed Mason with his dad Brad, my dad Ron, Mark’s brother Matt, Mason’s great grandpa Bob, and Mason’s 100 year old great great grandpa Flenniken, Mark’s friends Kyle & Chris, Bishop Hair and Stake President Cooper. It was a wonderful day and thankfully Mason didn’t participate in the tradition of having a blowout all over his blessing outfit 🙂
He’s still a great sleeper, not so much of a napper unless I’m holding him. He loves to snuggle in the morning and nap on my shoulder, and I absolutely love it! Last night he slept in his crib for the first time and he loved it! He slept from 9:30-6:30!
We really couldn’t ask for a happier baby. We feel so blessed and lucky to be his parents. He is so sweet and love his mom and dad. He loves watching Mark and could stare at him for hours. He’s such a good, sweet baby. I’ve never been happier.
