{21 Weeks}

Our sweet baby boy is now 21 weeks!!!
That's 147 days, 3528 hours, 211,680 minutes that you have been with us Mason!! Most Precious 211,680 minutes of my life!!
Mason, you are growing up right before our very eyes. Daddy and I think you are at a major development stage right now. You are advancing with each passing moment. At this time you are communicating with us more, getting better with your movements and reaching for and grabbing things, and you're showing a lot more interest in things. Daddy will say, "Where's Mommy" and you will look around for me and then grin, then I will hold you and say "Where's Daddy" and you do the same for him! It's awesome and makes our hearts melt. You are so loving and sweet. Your smile turns my world around and your laughter is music to my ears. Thank you Mason for making life so GRAND!!!

Lets see, at 21 weeks...

- You love to stand up; on anyone, anything and anywhere! You think you are so big. And if you don't feel like standing you make whoever is holding you stand. :)

- You love bright colors, especially red.

- Some of your favorite shows are Backyardigans, Clifford and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Those seem to keep your attention the most.
- You love to go places, but you are getting tired of your car seat. You want mommy to hold you so that you can look out the window.

- You love your baths, love to splash mommy and daddy. You stare at the bubbles in the tub. And now you are trying to figure out how to eat them!

- Oh yes, everything goes to the mouth!

- Can hardly get you to eat any veggies except sweet potatoes, still.

- You love to talk and be talked to!!

- You're starting to show a little interest in toys, but you get over them within a few minutes. Last night you sat in your jumper for about 20 minutes and loved it. You were playing with all of the gadgets and pushing the button to play the songs. You would laugh and laugh.

- You are eating 4-6 ounces every 2 -2 1/2 hours and usually get 1 juice bottle a day

- You are mostly in 6 -9 month clothes. Most of your pajamas are 12 mths and 18 mths and you are STILL ridiculously cute in pajamas!!

- Teething, oh teething!! You are drooling like crazy and always want something in your mouth. Sometimes they hurt so bad that you get really fussy. You have a vibrating teething ring that you love.

- Mommy and Daddy also think you are having growing pains. It's hard for you to get comfortable enough to sleep/rest. You are constantly kicking, twisting, swinging your arms and moving. - We recently learned that babies your age do this to strenghthen your stomach muscles; getting you ready for crawling and walking!!

- Besides the teething you are normally pretty happy! You almost always wake up with a smile on your face. Mommy and Daddy love this!!

- Still in size 3 diapers

- We are guessing you are around 18+ lbs right now. Oh my chunky goodness!

- You love to talk on the phone with Mommy and Daddy. You get so solemn and smile really big. You just can't figure out out to yank Mommy and Daddy out of the cell phone yet!

- Sleeping is pretty much the same each night. Mommy feeds you a cereal bottle around 7:30-8:00 each night and then you go to sleep in your bassinet. Around 1:00ish you start fussing and Mommy puts you in the bed with us. You get a 4oz bottle then. Sometimes you only drink 2oz, enough to go back to sleep, but sometimes you finish the full 4oz. Then you fidget again around 4:30 for another bottle, same thing here.

- You are crying a lot less and talking, smiling, laughing more!!

- You definitely know Mommy & Daddy's voice.
- Getting more and more coordinated with your arms and hands.
Now.....for your 21 week pictures....

We love you Masonbug!
