Da Da

One year ago today Mason uttered the words Da Da....and now he is saying things like triangle, dump truck and flamingo!!! So here are some pics of Mike and Mason in the sandbox.

Sand box pics

My dad built Mason a covered sand box to keep him out of the sun since we don't have any shade in the back yard...

For Vicki

My friend Vicki told me that I haven't updated my blog in a while. I wasn't going to post this picture....
Mason squirted me with the water hose when I was taking his sprinkler pictures. I wiped the lens off on Mike's shirt and somehow took this beautiful picture in the process. When I took this picture the thing I was focusing on was Mike's shirt and the water on the lens.....but my lens was focused to the heavens. Just an earthly reminder to focus on what we can see and the Lord will lead us to what we can't see.
It's ok if you don't understand this....Vicki will and that is all that matters.

Ok, so it's August and I haven't posted in OVER a month, so that means more pictures!!! About the only thing new with us is Mason is taking an interest in going pee pee in the potty!! He did it 3 times this weekend! We're not rushing him or pushing him, just letting him do it in his own timing!
He is developing into quite the character! He loves to laugh and make you laugh at him. He has a great sense of humor and LOVES to give others big hugs. He comes up to me several times a day to give me big hugs. Makes my heart melt.
Mason is getting quite smart too...yesterday he kept saying "Ah-angle" over and over again. I couldn't figure it out until he brought me a triangle! I have not taught him his shapes yet. Maybe his friend Elmo did? Mason has several books that he adores. We read to him all the time. The other day he was quite upset because Mike and I had no idea what he was telling us...Mingo Mingo Mingo he would shout. We had NO idea what he was talking about. Wouldn't you know it, that little booger went to his bookshelf and brought us a picture of a flamingo! Mind you, I hadn't read out of this book in weeks!! Ahhhhh, what information that little brains soak up! He is also learning more and more sign language words every day!! Enough talking here are some pics.
