{Five on FRI-YAY!!! // 5 things about Mason at 5 years old}

Happy finally Friday!! That week after having 10 glorious days off is always the longest and the hardest.  I can't even tell you how happy I am that it's FriYAY!!

I'm going to switch it up a bit for Five on Friday and post 5 {of my favorite} things about Mason at 5 years old that I never want to forget. Because I know I will blink and he'll be 13.

One //

His sweet little freckles that sweep across his cheeks and over his cute little nose. They're precious!! They're not as noticeable during the winter-time, but in the summer they really stand out due to the sun.

Two //

His cowlick. When he was first born I knew that he was going to have a cowlick. There were these little swirls of hair all in that area. I truly love it. No matter how much hairspray we add, or how hard we try to make a mohawk his cowlick has a mind of its own and does what it wants. I think it is adorable and works for him. Barbers always remember him because of his cowlick.

Three //

The gap between his two front teeth and how he is 100% convinced that he lost a tooth there. He says it must have happened in his sleep and that he swallowed it {gross}. I had this same gap between my baby teeth when I was a little girl {although, I think my gap was even bigger}. I know it won't be long and he'll start losing those little baby teeth...and the gap.

Four //

How incredibly different Mason looks without his glasses.

Five //

His sweet disposition and tender heart. His adoration for me is something fierce and something special. We definitely have a deep and special connection and it makes my mama heart sour.

  1. Love! He is the sweetest, most handsome little guy! Such a great smile and beautiful personality. Love the tooth story!

  2. Love this. Our Henry has a huge cowlick, too. And I'm totally with you on looking so different with glasses!


  3. your little one is so sweet and my daughter also has a bad cowlick too! So glad I came across your blog from the link up! I can't wait to follow you on your blogging journey and hope you'll stop by my blog too!

  4. What a sweet, sweet post! I think I need to follow suit because life updates on my kiddos are posts I really hate writing! This seems simple enough! And the tooth story--funny and gross!

  5. Aww, so sweet! I love this Friday Five post so much. Mason's freckles ARE so adorable and his cowlick! All these things make him uniquely him! And yeah, that tooth story is equal parts funny and gross.

  6. He is so stinkin' cute! His cowlick reminds me of my older brothers--his was the same way!

  7. So sweet and cute. Though he probably won't even want to be called cute for much longer. Rather be cool or handsome ;). Noah has cowlicks too, gel is the only thing that works for us!

  8. SO sweet!!! I don't know Mason personally, but he seems like the sweetest boy!
    My Mason has a small gap between his two front teeth also and it's the CUTEST thing. I love it!

  9. This is so sweet. Such special things that you don't want to forget. If only we could bottle up a little something from every age.

  10. This is the sweetest Friday 5!! I'm tucking this one away for when my kiddos are five. :)
    Mason is one adorable, sweet little man. You're one lucky momma!!

  11. He is simply the cutest! I too have a boy with an intense cowlick... So much hair gel all the time! And Liam has a gap too. I think they are adorable!

  12. Oh I just loved this post so much. I'll have to remember it for when I have a 5 year old in a month or so... WHAT?! You are totally right about blinking too. These babies grow up way to fast. Mason is one special guy.

    Hope you had a great weekend!


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
