{25 Weeks}

Our sweet baby boy is now 25 weeks!!!

That's 175 days, 4200 hours, 252,000 minutes that you have been with us Mason!! Most wonderful 252,000 minutes of my life!!

I can’t believe next week you will be 6 months old. Where has the time gone? Today Daddy and I were reminiscing and looking at pictures of you from when you were just days old; it was bittersweet. Daddy found a picture of you and I cuddled up and asleep in the hospital bed and said, “Some things never change”. He’s right!! We sleep like that every night. I love cuddling with you…it’s my absolute favorite. You have become quite the cuddle bug too. Mommy can’t get enough! Mason, you are so much fun. Each day just brings more and more joy. You interact so much with us now and we just love it. My favorite is to kiss your belly repeatedly; you crack up! And it’s so fun now that you know where your toes are. We love to play the “Mason where are your toes?” game!!! And you love your toes! We’ll keep playing the “toe” game for a few weeks and then move on to the belly or head! You are so smart and pick up new things everyday. It’s such an amazing journey!

Lets see, at 25 weeks...

You reach for what you want and get angry when you can’t get what you want! I think we are in for some fits….

You give kisses and it’s the sweetest, most heart-warming thing EVER!!

Your hair is still growing. It’s lost most of its red tint and is mostly a blondish/brownish color.

Sleeping – we seem to be back on your normal schedule…going to sleep between 7:30-8:30 and waking at 1 and 4 for a bottle. And you’ve been fairly easy to put to bed too. Thank you Mason!!

You're still a bigger fan of being outside than inside. Not sure what we're going to do in the Winter!!

You love your baby food and you are a champ at eating! It’s so fun to watch you, but sad at the same time. Fun because you’re so good at it and sit with your mouth perched open like a baby bird, but sad because you look so grown up when you eat! This week we tried Sweet Potatoes/Corn and you didn’t do so well. It gave you a tummy ache. I’ve heard from many people that corn is hard to digest. So, we’re going to avoid that one for a while. We also tried chicken noodle and you weren’t a big fan. You kept spitting it out. Mac-n-Cheese is your ultimate favorite and you like most fruits. You also had some gravy for the first time. Just a couple little bites.

Your new favorite thing is to drink from a straw. Anytime you see one you lunge for it.

You’re so close to turning from back to stomach…but you grab your feet and start playing every time. Not much longer, I’m sure.

You are starting to take more 6oz bottles than 4oz. You are a growing boy! We still try to give you 1 juice bottle a day. And sometimes you get a fruit at lunch, then a vegetable and fruit at dinner.

Mostly in 6-9 month clothing and a lot of 12 months too.

Still in size 3 diapers this week! Next box of diapers we buy will for sure be 4’s. The 3’s are getting snug.

Still love your baths! You think Mommy and Daddy need a bath each time you do and are happy to share your bath water with us!! You just grin and splash away. We have to lay towels around the counter!!

Aunt Leslie still keeps you Mon-Thurs while Mommy and Daddy work. You love Aunt Leslie and Cousin Tanner so much. We wait at the door for them each morning and you grin so big when Aunt Leslie tells you Good Morning! We couldn't ask for anyone better to watch our sweet boy for us!! We are blessed.

Now for the 25 week pictures:

We love you, Masonbug!!!
