Oh Mason! You are growing entirely too fast. You are getting so independent {& opinionated} and you throw out the "but I am four" on the daily like it's your job! You throw less fits, but you have more attitude than ever. You are also in a stage of talking back and telling us "no" more often than not. And then you will turn around and have the best manners 30 seconds later. It's a rollercoaster, I tell ya.

Most of the time you are the sweetest little guy and your big heart melts me. You are very passionate about everything you do and never do anything half-ass. If you're going to do something, you do it big. You're getting more adventurous and mischievous by the minute and when it gets quiet I come running. That's usually when you're doing something you're not supposed to. You love to be in your room or outside. You never want to leave our house. It's a battle any time we have to go somewhere!

You're still very attached to Mama..and that's okay by me! Bedtime is a warzone. You always want Mama to lay down with you and it takes you almost 2 hours to fall asleep every single night. Your mind has a really hard time shutting down. I shouldn't complain, because you are so intelligent and inquisitive. 

You enjoy riding your bike {& you're getting so good at it}, your jeep and anything else that has wheels. We spend our evenings outside playing with friends, drawing with chalk, playing with the kittens, etc. Your favorite toys right now are Mama and Daddy's old cell phones & keys, legos, anything police or fireman related, Spiderman/Super Hero, and still monster trucks. You're pretty much addicted to toys. And you love to dress up in your Police costume, Fireman costume, or Spiderman costume...and you almost always have on some funny glasses, a mask or eye patch, etc.

You're still the pickiest darn eater! You'd rather 'graze' all day than to eat a full meal. Your favorites are mac n cheese, grilled cheese, bread, vanilla wafers, squares {cinnamon toast crunch}, bananas, apples, applesauce, yogurt, milk & sweet tea. You still hate chocolate and peanut butter and will not touch anything that has the slighted brown color because you think it's either chocolate or PB. 

When you finally get to sleep at night you sleep pretty good. You're a night owl...love to stay up late and sleep late. Just like your Mama. Lately you have been going to sleep around 10 and sleeping until 9:30-11 am.
