Too Long

Sorry, I don't have any pictures to post because Mommy handed in her laptop to the accountant a few days after our last post. We hope to have it back in another week or two and then there will be tons of pics to share. Mason & I had a wonderful Christmas and we hope everyone else did too! The house is going great and is all drywalled and ready for mud. We can't wait to move in and get things back to normal! Hopefully soon. Florida is just around the corner and I am very excited to see the princesses.

Wishing everyone a happy and safe New Year's!

Mondays With Mason And Other Things

SONY DSC Yesterday was my 3rd birthday!!  It was very low key since we are at Grandma & Grandpa’s but I had a great day anyways.  In the morning we went to the play place and my cousin Emma came along, it was really fun.  After my nap Uncle Dave and Aunt Amy came over for pizza and cake and I opened my presents.  Thanks so much for all the fun play-doh!!  I also got a doll from Grandma & Grandpa and a castle from Mommy, Daddy and Mason.  We do have pictures but they still need to be uploaded.

Here is a picture of our house that Mommy took last week.  We are going out for lunch with Tammy tomorrow so we will go and see what else has been done.  I’m pretty sure the garage doors are on and the roof is shingled.  Now when I see the house I get a little more excited!  DSC03148-2
33 Weeks!  You know you had a good sleep when you have an imprint of the sheet on your face due to lack of movement LOL!!  Too bad this was taken over a month ago.  My sleeping is getting a bit better here but still not as good as before the move, soon…  It’s official, I am a crawler!!  I’m still not fast but I get where I want to go easily.  I’m more interested with pulling up on things these days.

I’m not making it up on my feet yet, just to my knees but I’m trying.  I am also doing a cross between downward dog and a push up.  Mommy thinks I should slow it down a bit since her little baby girl just turned 3 but I’m ready to go, go, go!!

Mondays With Mason

DSC03989-2

32 Weeks!!  The internet connection at Grandma and Grandpa’s is terrible on the 3rd floor so the posts will be few and far between for the duration of our stay.  Mommy has tried to comment on many blogs but she is only lucky enough to have had a few comments go through. 

I am growing bigger and stronger everyday.  I should be exclusively crawling by the end of this week!  I am getting better and better everyday!  I would post a video but that might take a century to upload so until we move you’ll have to take my word for it LOL.  I saw my first Christmas tree last week and I can’t see what all the fuss was about?  Yes the lights are twinkly and captured my attention for a few minutes but my reaction was a typical male reaction to a tree… maybe next year I’ll be more interested?  Sleep comes few and far between these days because I am teething.  I just cut my top left tooth today so hopefully I will sleep better tonight. 

2 weeks down… 8 more to go… SERENITY NOW!!

Settling In

So far we are still kind of at sorts and getting used to the new surroundings.  Mason is not sleeping well but is getting better.  I am getting up a few times a night and crying out for “Momma!!”, which makes for a very tired Mommy!  On the bright side Mommy is too tired to take everything to the accountant and still has her laptop LOL!  The lighting at Grandma & Grandpa’s house is amazing!!  So great for picture taking but so HOT!!  When it’s sunny we have to strip down because it gets too hot in the sun room (where we mostly hang out).  Here are a few shots of our days so far.
We are literally step away from the water!  It is sometimes scary to think about but so far I haven’t even tried to go near a door.  Mommy is really enjoying the sunsets, sunrises, and the moonlight pictures she is capturing!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American friends!  Hope you have a great Black Friday too LOL!

Mondays With Mason

DSC03499-2  30 Weeks!!!  Mommy is handing the laptop in later so we had time to do another Monday.  I have been working on my sitting skills this past week and I am getting really good at it if I do say so myself!  I’m not tipping over nearly as much and when I do I know to tense myself so that I won’t just bang my head on the floor.  I did do that a couple of times and I guess it’s live and learn LOL.  Since I have been sitting so much I haven’t done much work on the crawling… BUT I am creeping now so it won’t be long before I am on the go!  Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Feeding the Birds

DSC03466-2 DSC03472-2 DSC03477-2 DSC03528-2 DSC03529-2
Since everyone was asking, yes, that’s our hands.  The birds at Lemoine Point are so used to people that they will come down and eat from your hands.  Almost everyone that goes for a walk has a pocket full of seeds, they like sunflower seeds the most though.  You can also feed the chipmunks too!  They won’t sit on your hand but they will come and take shelled peanuts from your fingers but we haven’t been able to get any pictures of that because they are very timid and quick LOL!

Almost Done

DSC03373-2
We are almost finished packing.  Just a few more days and we are off to Grandma & Grandpa’s house!  Since so many of my toys are packed up I am finding everyday items to be fun, like this umbrella for instance.  When Mommy took it away from me I had a huge fit LOL, but I was trying to get through doorways and getting too close to Mason with it so she decided it wasn’t a good toy after all!  Oh well, at least we got some pictures hahaha. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Mondays With Mason

DSC03290-2 
29 Weeks!  My shots really took it out of me last week.  I had a fever until Friday night and spent most of the week crying if I was not constantly being entertained or sleeping.  Saturday morning I woke up feeling good and started working on my baby skills once again.  I am still rocking back and forth in the crawling position but so far have not tried to move, I want to make sure I won’t hurt myself!  I am still not ready to sit by myself on the floor without pillows.  Every time I try to put something in my mouth I have the habit of leaning backwards and falling over LOL.  One thing that I am making headway with is my pointer finger!  I love sticking it out and spinning toys and pressing buttons.  I really like “sticking my finger through Mommy’s ring” in my Pat The Bunny book.  I try to stack blocks but mostly I just give up and chew on them.  We’re not sure if we will be able to do Monday’s with Mason for a bit so I just might have to play catch up when we get the laptop back.  I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Busy, Busy, Busy!

DSC02961-2 
We are very busy getting all the last minute things packed and trying to decided what to take to Grandpa and Grandma’s with us.  I am not thrilled to be seeing my toys get stuffed into boxes.  Mommy told me it will be so much fun for me when we unpack everything because it will seem like Christmas all over again but I’m not much of a long term thinker, I want my toys now LOL!  Mommy has to hand in her laptop to the accountant this week, sniff, sniff.  It will be very hard not to be able to post for a while.  It will probably take about 3 weeks so we will try to catch up with everyone before we hand it in and after we get it back.  Not too much has happened with the house but they have got the footing done.  Here is another pic.

Our New House

SONY DSC
LOL!  So far not much to see.  We are moving out of our current house on the 22nd and we will be moving in with Grandma & Grandpa for a few months.  Really it will just be for a month because they will be leaving for Florida just after Christmas.  A few weeks later we will be driving down to meet them for a few weeks and hopefully when we return our house will be ready… fingers crossed.  I will post some progress pictures as the house goes up. 

I am very excited to go to Disney for the first time.  Now when I see the castle in pictures or commercials I always say Walt Disney World!  Mommy and Daddy booked me an appointment to get dressed up just like a princess and then we are going to go have dinner with the princesses!  I wonder who I will meet?  Because it’s not a good post without a picture of Mason or I, here is one LOL.

Wordless Wednesday With Words

DSC02166-2
Yesterday was fun!  In the morning Heather brought Cameron over to play for a while.  I really like playing with her but I still need to work on my sharing skills.  After our nap Mommy took Mason to the doctors and I played with Grandma and Grandpa for an hour or so.  When Mommy came to pick me up I had 2 flutes in my mouth and I was making lots of noise hehehe!!  Mommy suggested they hide those flutes before we move in with them or they may regret it.  I hope they are still there, Mommy hopes they won’t be LOL! 

Mason is getting to be so big.  He is now 29.5 inches long and weighs 19lbs.  At three and a half months old Mason was 27 inches and 18lbs.  The slimming down is starting already!  We think the poor guy is going to be a skinny mini just like me.  I was still quite chubby at 6 months old and he is already slimming down lol!

28 Weeks tomorrow!  I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow so I will let you all know how big and strong I am.  Last week I spent lots of time gazing at Taylor and continued trying out the crawling position.  I am still not very stable in the crawling position but I am getting better everyday!  I have also started to shake my head back and forth like I am saying “no”.  I have no idea that by doing that it means “no” but I do enjoy doing it.  This morning I kept on doing it when Mommy played music, it was fun to shake my head to the music!  Last week was one of those weeks that I chose to be miserable, we’ll see how I will act this week he he he!  We will be back tonight to catch up with everyone, Mommy has been busy with paperwork and packing boxes… we move in 2 weeks!

27 Weeks!  Taylor and I are really starting to enjoy spending more time together.  It has been so fun interacting with her more and more this past week.  I have tasted so many new foods and I have liked them all except for peaches.  I don’t hate the taste but it is a stronger flavor than most of the others and it makes me grimace until I get used to the taste.  My first Halloween was fun but I think I will enjoy it more next year.  I liked seeing the kids come to the door dressed up more than I liked going door to door.  I got another tooth so now I have my 2 bottom teeth.  I am back to chatting and babbling.  Bu-bu-bu is my new favorite thing to say.  Other than that I am just continuing to practice my sitting skills and working on the crawling position.  When Mommy tries to lay me down on my belly I curl my legs up and flex my arms so that I am set down in the crawling position.  I am still very shaky in that position and have not tried to crawl yet but maybe in a few weeks when I feel more confident I just might try!

Halloween Part II

DSC02598-2 DSC02560-2 DSC02541-2 DSC02620-2

This Halloween was so much fun for me because Uncle Rob and Aunt Laurie brought my cousin Emma up to play with me for a while and then we went out trick or treating together!  I had lots of fun walking up to houses with her and she helped me ring doorbells.  Mason only went to a few close neighbours that we knew because it was VERY COLD out yesterday, in fact, it snowed most of the day!!  It didn’t stay on the ground though but we did manage to snap this shot.

SONY DSC

Grandma and Grandpa also came up to see Mason and I in our costumes and helped pass out candies.  They also brought some yummy chili for supper but I just ate garlic bread because beans and burger are not my favorite LOL.

So Beary Cute!

DSC02086-2

We went to Lemoine Point for some costume pictures yesterday.  This is the best picture of Mason that Mommy was able to get and I wouldn’t even put my costume on.  As soon as we got there I started whining and kept on saying “this way”.  I wanted to go for a walk!  LOL.  Mommy took us there to have fun so she didn’t even try to get me to wear my costume and she took a few pictures of Mason and then we went for our walk.  I was as good a gold once we started walking and let Mommy take lots of pictures while on our walk.  Today I actually said “No camera Mommy!” when she pulled it out but while I wasn’t looking she was able to snap a few shots of what she was trying to get a picture of, we will share those tomorrow.  In other news, Mason is now showing off 2 teeth!

Surprise Tooth!   DSC02035-2

26 Weeks tomorrow and 6 Months old on Wednesday!!  Half a year old already!!!  Time is really flying by.  This week I surprised Mommy with my first tooth!  It wasn’t there Friday when I went to sleep but it was there when I woke up.  I have been drooling like crazy for months now and I have been attacking faces and chewing on fingers.  Taylor did that for 6 months before she cut her first tooth at almost 9 months old so Mommy wasn’t even expecting a tooth because I wasn’t acting fussy or crying during the night.   What can I say, I like to keep her guessing LOL.  I started eating solids this week too.  I am not too thrilled with sweet potatoes yet but I do love applesauce and raspberries… YUM!  I am also starting to get up on my hands and knees and rocking back and forth.  I haven’t accomplished this on the hardwood floor yet but I can do it on the couch and carpet.  Last but not least, I am starting to copy things.  When I was at Grandma & Grandpa’s house Grandpa tapped on the table to try to get my attention and so I tapped on the table too.  We sat there and played that game for a few minutes until Taylor came in the room and tapped on the table too.  I thought that was so great and laughed and laughed and laughed!  So far only Taylor can get me to laugh like that.

Mommy got a surprise this morning.  It wasn’t anything that was bought but it was a pleasant surprise!  Monday’s post will bring more details LOL.

Happy Weekend

Today we went to the playtrium to run off some energy, Mason even had a blast in the baby section.  I, of course, threw a fit when it was time to go, I just hate to leave when I’m having so much fun!  I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Guess Who’s Easier To Take Pictures Of?

DSC01822-2 DSC01851-2

Mason is what Mommy calls a captive audience LOL, so he is easy to take pictures of because he can’t get away.  I, on the other hand, rarely stay still so I guess that makes me the difficult one!

We Love Fall!

DSC01697-4 DSC01711-3

What’s not to love?  We only wish that we could get outside more often.  It always seems like something comes up but it does make us more appreciative when we actually get to go.  Mason and I had so much fun playing with leaves today.  I can’t wait to go back next week!  We have so many pictures so hopefully Mommy will be posting a few everyday for a bit.

Last night we went to the Mall to see Toopy & Binoo!  It was crazy how many people were there and made Daddy a little perturbed so he had to leave to shop while we watched the show, on the bright side we were just able to leave when it was over because he did Mommy’s errands for her.  Unfortunately we don’t have any pictures because Mommy forgot to charge her battery for the camera.  Mommy brought the camera because she knew she could still manage to get a few shots out of it.  Daddy wasn’t aware of that though and while Mommy was at The Children’s Place he turned it on and took some pictures of the empty stage and the battery died!!  When Mommy got back he told her the battery was dead… D-UH LOL!
