Working with daddy in his office. 
Then Mason went for a ride with daddy.
Our cute salesman...
Mason was playing while we 
waited at the dealership.

already being a Big Brother.

Mason is already being a big brother...
He is checking out all the baby stuff
to make sure it is okay for his little sister.
Mason thinks this is his house.
Putting Woody and Buzz in the swing...
he wants to make sure it is safe for baby sister. 
Car seat check.

Look like Mommy.

Papaw making Mason look like Mommy...
My little twin. 

Playing with Papaw.

Sliding like Buzz.

Playing in the sandbox.

Mason decided to lay down while he ate.

Just hanging out with Papaw.

Papaw came to see us for the weekend.
Mason was a happy little boy!
Bouncing on the extra baby mattress.

Mason laughing so hard, he couldn't bounce.

Climbing all over Papaw.

oh, Baby.

Time is going by fast. 
It's hard to believe I am almost 33 weeks.
(Reminder: Mason was born at 35 weeks, 5 days) 
We are getting anxious about meeting our little baby.
I just went to the doctor, everything looks good.
I will have a sonogram at my next appointment to check
on the baby's measurements since Mason was early. 
I feel good...except I have to take an extra iron pill because my
iron was low and I 
 have to take Tums which 
has increased to Zantac at night.
She better have lots of hair or I am going to punch everyone that has told me that.
Ok, I'm really not going to punch anyone...but I guess
we will see if the old wives tale is true.
Honestly, I probably feel better at almost 33 weeks
than when I first found out I was pregnant.
I started swimming lessons with Mason, and we have been 
going to the pool as much as possible...
Swimming has been great!
I have heard that swimming was great for pregnant ladies,
and I really do see the benefits and I sleep great on 
the days we swim.

Almost 27 weeks...June 4th
June 24, 2011...almost 30 weeks.
July 2, 2011...keeping up with Mason at the pool.
30 weeks, 5 days.
July 7, 2011
31 weeks, 3 days.

July 13, 2011
32 weeks 2 days.
(and cute little Mason man)

Soon there will be a little baby picture.

"C is for"

C is for cat and car. 
Here are the pictures of what Mason made for the letter C.
I didn't take any pictures of Mason working on these.
I like to take pictures, but sometimes I just
like to put the camera down and enjoy the moment.
I drew the face...and Mason colored the cat.
Then we added whiskers.
I cut out the car shape. Then Mason glued on the wheels.
Mason drove these little cars around everywhere.

our sweet boy.

We just love this little boy.
He is such a joy.
and he is getting so big...
(and notice he has three blankets: "blink, green and white" 
are the names he gave the blankets. It is 90 degrees, yet he has all
blankets with him in his car seat.)
Sweet little feet.
Ever since Mason was a baby, I have always given him massages.
He loves his hands, feet, and back rubbed.
Now he is at the point, he will just ask me.
He will curl up in my lap...and hold out his little hands...
and say "my hands."
I think we have the only two year old that requests a massage.

we don't need toys.

Fisher Price has lots of really cool toys. 
However, the toys aren't as fun as the everyday household items.

Sock balls...Mason has carried these around for days.
We play catch, we hide the balls, we threw the 
balls at the wall and tried to hit the fan..
Maci's dog toys...
Mason will empty this basket and then put the toys back...
and he will do this over and over.
We had scrap paper left over from a craft, and Mason found this piece.
He said it was a phone...and yes it looks like a phone.
He carried this around talking to Papaw and the Wonder Pets. 
Not pictured: We made balls out of Play-doh, 
and we threw the balls in a mason jar. 
He thought this was the funniest thing ever.
