It has been so nice outside this week, it’s been great! We went for a walk twice this week at the Point and tonight we went exploring beside our house. If you walk far enough down a trail there is a big retention pond and lots of grass. It was actually really pretty and there are a few families of geese living there too. We can’t wait for them to complete all the walking trails in our new neighbourhood. Love, love, love this warm weather!

A few weeks ago we went out and got some activity books. This was my very first attempt at tracing the alphabet (or anything for that matter!). Mommy was so very proud of me and as you can see I was pretty pleased with myself too!! Look at that smile! Anyways, Mommy helped me with the A and the C just to show me how to follow the dashes. I tried with my right hand first because whenever I eat or colour I always rotate from hand to hand so Mommy just automatically passed me the marker to my right hand. I traced out the B and I was very wobbly. I then put the marker in my left hand and it seemed to help with getting the straight lines straighter LOL!
Happy Mothers Day to all the mommies out there!

Mommy is trying to clear some space on her laptop because it is now full! So we need store some more pictures on the external hard drive. That is not our favorite thing to do since losing all of my pictures from age 0-24 months on our old drive so Mommy likes to post her favorites just in case it was to happen again. I guess Mason gets the spotlight tonight LOL, but we did go to Lemoine Point tonight so I’m sure you will see some pics of me soon.

On Sunday we had Mason’s first birthday party! As you might guess the theme was Sock Monkey! All of the little kids got sock monkeys for favors. Mommy went a little crazy with the banana theme. We baked 4 different kinds of banana bread, made banana slush punch, and had banana cake too LOL. It has been so busy and fun preparing for the party but with all the things to do Mommy forgot to take pictures of half the things she did. Thankfully Natalie took some pictures and sent them so we can show you the bread and cake pops/balls that Mommy made. Mason and I loved every minute of the party and had so much fun playing and partying. Everyone was so well behaved, it was an excellent day! Thank-you Uncle Dave and Aunt Amy for coming over early and helping and to everyone else that helped or offered to help. Mommy, Daddy and I were not home the day before the party to prepare because I had dental surgery. It was really hard on Mommy and Daddy to see me go under but I did amazing and recovered perfectly for the party the next day.
By the way, somebody is also walking… you were right Nat! Not all the time, but more and more everyday, Mason is walking!! Now that surgery/appointments and the party is over, we are hoping to get a few more posts in and not go almost 3 weeks without one. Perhaps an April recap is required?
