icy & snowy days.

Mason's version of vacuuming. 
Taking his job serious.

The beginning of the ice storm....then snow.
This weather is good for cuddling on the couch.
(Notice: Mason is laying on Maci dog).

Doctor's Appointment

Mason has been going to my doctor's appointments with me. 
I have been making little bags of stuff to keep Mason 
content while we wait on the doctor.  
(Paper, crayons, stickers, little book, and when all else fails...suckers!)
Mason had plans of his own...
We walked in the door, and he ran to the toy area.
He found these super cool sunglasses. 
He would just sit and wave to everyone.

Doctor's Appointment Update: 
Mason and I listened to the baby's heartbeat. 
We have an ultrasound this week to measure the baby.
Since Mason was early, the doctor wants to monitor this 
baby with more ultrasounds. 
Then we go back to see the doctor in a month.

Valentine's Day.

Valentine's Day started off with a flat tire. 
Heath watched Mason while I took the car to the tire shop.
Then, they brought me breakfast...we said "bye bye" to Heath...
and headed to Kindermusik for a Valentine's Day Party.

Mason checking out his treats. 

Cute shirt and jeans...what a handsome little boy!
Being Cute in Class.
Then we had strawberries with a little sugar.
Then the mail came...
Valentine's for Mason.
It was a "Choo Choo" card.
Card or Money...
He picked the "Choo Choo" card!
Another Valentine for Mason..
An Airplane Card...he was super excited!

Mason thought he was really driving a car.
"Vrooom. Vrooom."

our surprise.

Last Wednesday, Heath surprised us by coming in!
We didn't know he was planning on coming in so
Mason was one excited little boy when he woke up Thursday.
Helping Daddy work.
Getting a a hummer!
"How does an Owl go?"
"hoo hoo"
Mason likes to wear hats.

Just Playing...

Mason likes to play with trains. 
I hear "Choo Choo" several times a day.
Walking little...with a bib on his head.
Pretending to talk on the phone 
while standing in Daddy's shoes.

Saying "bubble" 

Crazy Hair.

Yes, I have been a slacker with blogging.
It's ok though, I have been spending my time sleeping.
I admit it.
I have been taking naps and going to bed by 9:30 most nights.
My body needs the rest right now, and
I know that there is going to be a lot of sleepless nights in my future.
So I'm stocking up on sleep right now.
Plus, we have been hit with a couple snow storms, including a blizzard.
I have spent many days running to the store to stock up and preparing for all the "what ifs"
We have spent days in the house, so I should be caught up on a blogging and pictures.
Instead a nap is so much better when it's 2 degrees outside with -20 wind chill...
We are surviving all the crazy snow storms,
and I appreciate everyone calling to check on us.
It means a lot to know you are thinking about us many, many miles away.
Mason and I have been doing other activities like painting, reading, coloring, 
and baking (I made my first apple bread...Yum!)
Heath and Maci Dog are probably freezing in SD.
Heath is counting down the days until his Grand Opening for Kohl's!

Keep checking the blog, we will get back in routine soon.
