One Year Old

I have a one year old. Whaaat? When did this happen? Where did the time go? It snuck up on me and sprinted straight by...

Mason Jack is a toddler. That blows my mind. Sure, I can reminisce on the day he was born, the day I brought him home from the hospital, and all of his many firsts. Instead I want to focus on the here and now.

Mason's birthday party was a blast! He was surrounded by all of the people that love and care about him so much. He loved the fact that everyone he knew was in the same area, and spent the majority of the day being passed around.

The kid dove straight into his smash cake. No hesitation whatsoever. I mean what else would you expect? He loves food! I thought he would end up getting sick from the amount of cake that he ate, but he enjoyed it way too much.

Mason has become the most carefree, kind hearted little man. He loves giving hugs and kisses. He loves babbling, playing with new musical table that he got for his birthday, and "reading".

He has yet to walk. I know it's a lack of confidence more than anything. He is terrified to let go of my leg and actually take a few steps, but he is cruising around and standing up by himself.

He loves watching "Bob Bob" (Spongebob of course), and was super excited about his season 1 DVD of Spongebob that his Mimi gave him.
Right now we are in the process of taking the bottle and pacifier away. He uses a sippy cup the majority of the time, but sometimes he gives me that "What the heck is this?!" look when he realizes I've put his milk in his bottle. Luckily, the little guy only takes a pacifier when he goes to bed. He doesn't get it during the day. But I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it won't be one of those things that ends up making us both stay up half the night.

Glad to be back to blogging again! My goal is to blog at least once a week.

Oh, AND....drumroll please....
I have lost 27 lbs!
