JuST KeeP SWiMMiNG, swimming, swimming...

 I had Friday off work and so I decided to Mason to the pool for the first time & he absolutely loved it! My mom went with us. At first he thought he needed to drink that nasty water...after about 10 mins of trying to get him to stop he realized he could play in it. There was a little girl who kept playing with him & he just laughed the whole time. I wish I didn’t have to work as much so I could take him more! I’m hoping to start getting off early on Wednesdays so we can go more! :) Towards the end he was getting so tired & looked like he was going to fall asleep so I took him out & he just cried.  He did not want to leave! But after 2 hours it was time to go! We were in the car for probably 2 mins & he was out!

Just wanted to take a minute & tell our friends thanks for all they do for us! You guys make such a big impact on our lives & we're so grateful to have you! You've got us through a lot & help make us who we are today!

A lot people will walk in and out of your life but only a true friend can leave a mark in your heart.

4th of July

4th of July weekend was a blast!! It was my mom’s birthday so we spent the day at her house.  We had family over, cooked out & played games. She got spoiled!! She took Mason on his first four-wheeler ride & he absolutely loved it!! That night we went out to the big town of Lewiston to watch fireworks. Justin & Jess were at their grandparents watching from the back yard & so we met up with them! Poor Mason was just so tired & wanted to sleep during them so after crying awhile from trying to keep him up we finally let him sleep. I’m sure next year he’ll like them a lot more! We had fun being with Just & Jess! They are such a fun couple & Mason LOVES them!!

"Good Stuff"

Kenny Chesney…can I just say AMAZING!! Alex & Mandee invited us to go with them & we had a blast! We have never been away from Mason for the night & so it was a first because we stayed with Mandee & Alex at a hotel. Where to begin…how about Alex’s driving…haha if I were in the front seat instead of the back I would have been totally fine, but I get SOO motion sick!! My stomach was not feeling to good!!  We went to eat, I told them I didn’t care just to pick a place, well that wasn’t the best idea, we went to Red Lobster. I hate fish. Crab. Shrimp. Anything that lives in the water…YUCK! Luckly, the night did progress! We checked into the hotel & hung out with some friends until the concert.  We missed Uncle Kracker but got to see Billy Currington & Kenny! They were awesome! It was so much fun! Alex is quite the dancer!
We ran into Chrishel & Randy and had them come sit with us, it was fun having them there!!  After the concert we made it to The Puck for dinner like 3 min before the grill closed, they’ve got some dang good food, better then NASTY Red Lobster, then off to the hotel! We got up the next morning & headed home, we missed Mace so it was good to go get him from my mom’s!!

6 Month Update

We took Mason in for his 6 month check up Friday…this kid weighs 18 lbs 1 oz now, I was a little surprised, he feels like he weighs a lot more! It’s crazy to see how much he’s learned & changed over the past 6 months. He loves walks & loves to be outside! He’s rolling all over & now doing the “army crawl” so when he wants something, he gets it. He loves food, as you can see in his cheeks! Anytime he sees someone take a drink or sees a cup sitting close he wants it. He’ll try all he can to get to it & let you know when he’s not happy that you won’t share.  Mason does this new thing when he’s mad where he holds his breath & spits while he cries…it’s actually funny & it makes me not feel too bad for him. He loves popsicles, strawberries, suckers, pickles, snow cones, crackers…you name it, and he’ll eat it!  He's got his 2 bottom teeth & those things are sharp! Poor kids always cutting his fingers. We've been watching his eyes because they are mostly brown but the left one has lots of blue in it, I don't think they're going to be just one color. It looks like ones stayin blue & one brown! He’s saying ba-ba, da-da, ga-ga…all sorts of weird noises we just wish he knew what the da-da meant! He’ll figure it out soon I’m sure!  Mason loves attention; he likes to entertain whoever will look at him at church. He gets the biggest grin once someone makes eye contact with him, then he yells & you know they smiled at him.  (just like the picture below) Mason is learning to wave, we wave bye to him & he copies most of the time.
He LOVES his dad, Nic can walk in the room & Masons face just lights up! He’ll be all but asleep & Nic will say something & if Mason hears that voice, his eyes shoot wide open! He’s turning into a curious little boy! He loves the water! We take him to the lake & he’s just happy as can be! He always wants to do something different, he doesn’t let us just stay in the house & relax anymore! Time flies…I can’t believe he’s already 6 months it’s just getting more fun every day & he makes us so happy! We love you Mase!
