Home, Home on the Range

Today was an amazing day for Mason.  A little over a week ago Tom and Mason started going to the "Daddy Golf Course".  At said course Mason has been practicing putting.  Mason only has a set of plastic golf clubs and Tom would only let him use his clubs on the putting green.  Mason has done really well with obeying the rules of golf like NO running on the green, being quiet while others are around, NO jumping on the green and several more.  After the first visit Mason has been begging for his own set of "real" clubs so that he could hit balls on the driving range.  Well of course because he has chosen to be a lefty that meant we had to order clubs.  We had already decided that that was what he was getting for his birthday so we ordered them a bit early.......Well we were told that the shipment of these clubs would be on Saturday.  Every day we have talked about the countdown until Saturday!  Today as we were doing our normal morning routine we heard a "big" truck pull up.  We hurried outside and to our surprise Mason shipment was a day EARLY!!!!     
The hardest part of the day was waiting for Tom to get home so that we could go to the range.  Once he got home we were off!!!
Heading to get a bucket of balls.
First you have to buy tokens.
Then you have to get the bucket to catch the balls.
Insert token next.
Watch the balls....
Make Daddy carry all the balls!
Once on the range Daddy told us all the rules.
Then it was go time!!!!
After several hits it is important to take a break and watch Daddy hit a few.
After a bit of a rest it is go time again!
Changing up clubs....
All balls got hit!
 Once all the balls were hit we ended the night on the putting green.  Over all Mason did an awesome job hitting the balls and following directions.  It was lots of fun to watch him hit and learn from his Daddy.  I foresee lot of range time in our future : )

Baby update

So now that our secret is out here are a few details.....

*Flynn Baby #2 is due February 9, 2015.
*I am 15.5 weeks
*Baby looks great and is measuring accordingly.
*I have been going to see my doctor every other week to get an ultrasound of my cervix and the baby.  So far so good.  No signs of any shorting or opening.  If they start to see any of this then we will start talking about a cerclage. 
*I am not limited on any activities but I have been very tired so I have not been doing much. 
*Needless to say the goal for all parties is to keep this baby in until FULL term so we are all doing our part in this plan!
*Mason goes with me to all the appointments and LOVES when it is time to hear the heart beat.  He gets this big grin on his face.  They have been giving him a picture of his own, of the baby and their heart beat, and he carries it around proudly showing it to anyone that will look. 
*Yes we are hoping to find out the sex of the baby.....the next chance is this Monday and if all works out and baby is helpful you all will be let in on the secret. 

Here is a belly picture for anyone that is interested.....in the last week I have totally popped and I am starting to look pregnant and not just fat around the belly!!!

 It goes without saying that I need to work on my bump picture taking skills : )
