So Very Thankful

For this little boy.

We hope everyone had a very nice Thanksgiving.
It is hard to believe that a year ago today Mason was drinking from a bottle for the very first time.  Crazy how time flies.  Now he is holding his own bottles and feeding himself solid foods.

Little man's first Santa experience

Last year, Mason was out of the hospital in time to get a photo with Santa. Unfortunately, Santa would have to wait as he was somewhat quarantined and was unable to go out into a huge amount of public and get photos. That all changed today!

What occurred is told through the progression of a few photos........beware, possible meltdown lies ahead.

A curious little boy sits on Santa's lap for the first time. Santa whispers in his ear to try to calm him down as he is a tough agitated right off the bat.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain ha ha. The little man does not take too well to the whispering and so Santa does all he can to get the photos taken care of as quickly as possible to avoid total catastrophie.

Breaking down..........really breaking down.


Total child panic and a calling for Mom, who is behind the camera by the way.

Resized if you would like to make this your screensaver...........poor baby boy.

Resized meltdown to make it more dramatic.

The resized decent start, before the water works.

Mason did very well waiting in line and even got to see Santa before he was in front of the backdrop. Santa tried all he could to get him to calm down and it just wasn't going to happen. The earlier attempt was slightly better, but Mason still was a bit scared of the jolly old man. He gave it a good effort though.

Next time Santa will say his nicknames a little louder so he can hear them rather than try to whisper them thinking that soothing words would help. Maybe if he tickled him or something too..........there is always next year to try.

Love you Mason, great job and thank you so much for that opportunity it meant an awful lot to me.

Play Date

Sorry for the long delay.  The month of November has just flown by.  Luckily a few Mondays ago Crystal and Asher were able to come over and play.  Here are a few pictures of the boys and their toys!

Even the mommies had a bit of fun.......

For no mere mortal can resist.............

The adorable nature of..........THIS BABY!

Halloween! The holiday for dressing up and gorging ones self on candy and sweets. Unfortunately for the baby boy, he only has one tooth so gorging on anything is difficult if it has not been through a blender. That did not deter him from selecting the proper pumpkin and costume to celebrate in style. Here is proof!

 Mason among the pumpkin patch. He loved the mud and the pumpkins.
What a priceless look...........huh!????

Getting him to sit on a pumpkin long enough for me to get out of the photo and Julie to take the photo..........well it was not easy ok?

Or instant debauchery.

Love ya Mason!

Smiles aplenty at the pumpkin patch.

Carving pumpkins was a blast. He LOVED the guts of the pumpkin.

He got in there and really had a blast. He tried to eat it, of course, but was deterred by his Mom and Dad.

Mason then decided that "fear does not exist in this dojo." He gave that pumpkin a "great front kick" and later fell asleep.

That is not a costume.........that is a mother bear in our garbage. She is HUGE!

Halloween night, Mason ditched the Cobra Kai gear and went with a dragon ensamble. I called him Puff all night and he had a blast in his costume. Good pick Mom!

Ready to fly?

Certainly ready to walk..........though that happens every day!

First trick or treat trip!

"I'm hungry for candy"

Here is his first trick or treat gig.........he got 2 pieces of candy and smiled as soon as he got his hands on them. We left the wrappers on and he likes to chew on the wrappers and carry them around. He is so proud of his first outing.

Tired after all that candy getting.

Mason's second halloween was a great day. It was his first one out of the hospital where he wore bibs as clothing so it sure felt more "normal." He had a great time and his costume was so darn adorable. We hope you all had a safe Halloween and we will check back soon. God bless you all!
