Forward motion....

Mason is now 14mo old. 

Most babies his age ( and younger) are already walking , heck, some are even running!  But walking is something we have yet to accomplish. 

To see other (mostly younger) babies pass him by, still hurts ( but not as much as it used to..)  But that little miracle never stops amazing us.    We are now well on our way to walking!

Mason can pull up to stand like a pro!

He is now crusing along the couches like a rock STAR!

 He is also starting to walk using his walker!!!!!  And oh how sweet those little step are. ( yes mommy cries tears of JOY!)

When I start to get upset that Macy is getting passed by other babies even younger than him in gross motor skills, I remember this photo....

And remind myself that my sweet boy went through open heart surgery just 9 short months ago.

Then when I look at him, remembering that they said he would never make it to birth......

And now look at my miracle:

He is climbing..

 AND always smiling.....

So I will sit back and patently wait for our turn, when he is good and ready...

as you can see in the climbing pic....When he is walking, Im going to have a wild one on my hands!

Pool Time

 Its that time!!


We have a great pool near our house and this week we took Colby, Mason, and our niece Addy.   All 3 kids loved the pool.  There are 2 big pools, both with zero entry ( gradual incline into the water) and Mason loved playing in the shallow end!  The kids pool is great as well, with a good sized water slide in it ( Colbys favorite since he can go down all by himself!)  

There is also a lazy river ( Mason fell asleep on the raft in the lazy river) and 2 big slides in that area as well ( See pic bellow) The blue slide is a group slide so we could all go down at the same time ( Again Colbys Favorite!)

We all had a blast and cant wait to go back again next week!

and we have a tooth

Mason officially cut his first tooth yesterday.  He has been a champ while cutting it also.  Most babies will cry/ fuss/ be misurble for weeks or months leading up to the tooth...not Mason.   2hrs of a sleepy fussing....and then were done, tooth is in and were over it.  

Im telling you... This kid is awesome!
