Here are some random
updates on Mason.
  • He LOVES milk.
  • He is saying more and more words.
  • He loves to go to bed. He can be playing with any toy...I'll ask him if he is ready for bed...he drops the toy, finds his blanket, and off to bed he goes. No joke, we have many witnesses.
  • He knows a lot of animal noises and movements....including whales spout, and he pretends to spit.
  • He still gets excited about fish....when we pull up to Cabela's he says "fish" and "deer"
  • He looks at books and jabbers his own story.
  • He likes to be chased.
  • He laughs like Woody the Woodpecker.
  • He laughs when I go around big curves.
  • He just started Kindermusik again.
  • His answer to everything now is "Where?" (with his little arms out to his side)
  • He is the funniest person I know.
  • He doesn't have any patience.
  • He head-butted a kid at Wallabies that was in his way. (Ha, it was one of those I want to laugh, but can't moments)
  • He likes to slide.
  • He is starting to cuddle more on the couch.
  • He is going to be a BIG BROTHER :)

Cupcakes are fun!
Whatever is on his hands...paint, food, lotion...
always ends up in his hair.
A white cupcake isn't as fun as a blue one.
Giving Mimi a bite.

wallabies 2

We didn't get to do a lot while in TN.
Mason was sick the first part, then the snow hit.
We did get a chance to go back to Wallabies.
I think Mason was happy to be out of the house!

Mason sliding...he loves to slide.
Telling everyone what he thinks.

He took Mema to the big slides.

Playing with Emily in her house.

Mason liked playing with all Mema's exercise bands.
All the great-grandparents came to visit at the same time.
All the world's problems are now solved.

Mason figured out how to blow a whistle.
Mason thought this was funny.
He couldn't blow the whistle long for smiling/laughing.
I loved this sweater on Mason...
such a cute little boy!

 Thursday, I took Mason to Wallabies with
Mimi, my Aunt Tina, Ashlea, and Emily.
We haven't been out of the house since
we arrived in Tennessee with all the
sickness and snowy weather.
Mason smiled really big,
 when he walked through the door.

It has been a crazy two weeks. We had a good Christmas. My mom and dad (Papaw and Mema) came out right before Christmas, and they spent Christmas with us. I decided to ride back to Tennessee with mom and dad. So Monday morning we dropped Heath off at the airport, and we started our 13 hour drive to TN. Mason did wonderful on the long drive. He even slept really good his first night in TN. Then the fun started....the vomiting. In just two hours the little guy was beginning to dehydrate so off to the Children's ER. Mason had an IV with fluids and meds at the hospital. Six hours later we leave. Wednesday, Mason wasn't doing any better. It took my mom, my dad, and me to just keep everything cleaned up. Wednesday night we headed back to the ER. (One of the nurses said he had never seen a child Mason's age throw up so much) Mason was admitted to the hospital....the doctors wanted him to get plenty of fluids and rest. Heath came to Tennessee because Mason was so sick. It has been a long week. Today, was the first day Mason hasn't thrown up! WoOoHoO. The little guy is still not his usual self. I am sure it is going to take a couple days for Mason to be our wild man again. It is helpless feeling watching your child sick, crying...just looking at you with the "why don't you help me" eyes.
