{Being a Daddy...Part Four}

Means having a sense of pride when you are looking into your sons beautiful blue eyes and know that you have done good.

A bubble one, that is :) Daddy had some fun with Mason in the bathtub last night!

{Weekend Wrap-up}

We had another great weekend with our lil' family!! Friday's are pretty routine to us - Target, dinner, hang out at home. :) We make our weekly Target run for forumla, diapers, water, etc and then mosie around to see what else Target has to offer us. Although it just end up frustrating Nathan and I. The reason being is that Target seems to cater to girl's clothing rather than boys. Their boy section is microscopic compared to the girls section. Grrr...Not only at Target, but this is almost the case everywhere! Boys need clothes too, people! Hello! Anyhow, after Target we grabbed Whataburger and headed home. We watched TV and hung out, then it was time for bed. Mason is on a very strict sleeping schedule, all on his own :) Most of the time momma has to go to sleep with him. He knows the minute I get up!

Daddy and Mason hanging out:
(please bear with the awesome iPhone pictures, haha)

His favorite thing to do is stand up, and he's great at it!

On Saturday we got up and attempted "garage selling" but weren't so successfull. The only thing we found was a 50 cent lamp. It was a good find, though! We had lunch at Applebees (one of our current favorites) and then hung out for a bit. Around 4ish we headed to Scurry for Kolton's bday party. Mason dipped his feet in the pool, but especially loved the squirting water from the slip-n-slide.

He LOVES the water!!

And was a very sleepy boy on the way home!

Sunday morning we got up and did our grocery shopping at HEB. Love, love love HEB. And Mason is always so good while we do our shopping. It's nice to not have to fight a crowd and to take your time picking out meals! After shopping we went to visit my family. One of my cousins were in from Paris, TX. It was her first time to meet Mason. I forgot to get a picture of them. Oops! But I did get pictures of Mason laying in my lap -

Love his little grin!

After visiting for a bit we went home for a while. We had a sandwich and rested a bit. I nursed Mason in bed and took a short nap with him. Then we headed out to Bass Pro Shop with Les, Scooter and Tanner. Mason absolutely loved it. He was so curious looking at everything. And ever so often he would laugh loud and squirm. It was a good time!!

Mason wasn't even scared of this big guy:

After Bass Pro we 'Co'-made dinner with the Halls. They did the ham and cornbread and we made a side dish. It was yummy! We hung out outside afterwards for a while. Which, we are all feeing today with allergies. Boo!

He looks SO big in those last two pictures!

And that's our weekend wrap-up!

{Being a Mommy...Part Ten}

Means spending countless hours wondering how you ever felt complete before being a Mother.

{High School already??}

On Friday Daddy took you to visit Nana at work. All of her friends wanted to see you! You were so good and everyone enjoyed visiting with you. They even made you an ID. You are an honorary student of Martin HS!! :)

See that # 28 at the bottom? That's the year you graduate HS Mason love! Oh my!

{Bathtime Fun}

Mason, you still love your baths. We recently had to buy you a bigger bathtub. You outgrew your first one :)


Mommy is so happy she decided to nurse you. It's been an amazing experience and I know that it's the best thing for you, Mason bug!

{Special Visit}

On Saturday Mommy's really great friends Holly & Amy came over to visit and meet you! We had a nice time visiting and catching up. Holly made you a really awesome Texas Rangers baseball blanket!

{13 Weeks}

Mason, on Tuesday August 24th you turned 13 weeks! And on Wednesday (Mommy & Daddy's 4th wedding anniversary) you turned 3 months!! Some days it feels like the days are just flying by, but then again its hard to remember life before you. You make mommy and daddy the happiest and proudest parents in the world.

You are probably around 15 1/2 pounds by now
You are still eating 4-6 ounces at a time (every 2 - 2 1/2 hours)
This week we switched you back to a milk based formula (instead of the soy) and you seem to be doing pretty well. I know it's still too early to tell, but Mommy is praying this works. You are on the sensitive tummy formula
You love your swing (most of the time) and like to have it in front of the TV
You watch Ranger games like you know what's going on and it's hard to break your attention from it
You think Mommy and Daddy are the funniest people in the world
You LOVE to stand up
You still sleep with Mommy & Daddy (you're such a cuddlebug)
Still in size 2 diapers
Mostly in 3-6 month clothing
Love to go places and to be out and about
LOVE to stand up and you're so strong!
Still not a big fan of tummy time (which Mommy & Daddy are slacking on)
Your bedtime is still around 9 pm and you let us know!
You have really found your voice, hands and feet this week and it's precious

{Mommy & Mason}

Words could never describe how much I love this little chubby cheek blue eyed oh-so-cute baby boy!
