WHEW! The last few months have been jam packed and Mason is growing and changing so much!!! I just kept random notes during the last three months and I decided to just bullet point them for this update. Next update will be 2 YEARS!
*Matt took some pictures of him one morning inside in his PJs. That's real like with our sweet boy!*
Here's way more information than anyone will want to know about our sweet boy! HAHA! (in no particular order)
*Finally staying more still for diaper changes :)
*Following multiple step directions: "Mason go over there and lay down so I can change your diaper" etc.
*learning so many new words; see below for a pretty comprehensive list
*Giving lots of kisses
*swim lessons in May; by the end of July, he was kicking and "swimming" a lot more!
*will respond to "lay down" for diaper changes
*pats the seat next to him and points to it to have you sit down next to him.
*trip to Montgomery to Visit his Grammy/Mammy (what he says) and PopPop
*Started calling Daddy "Matt" and yelling it out around the house
