2 Months

Our sweet Mason has reached his 2 month birthday!  It's amazing to see how each week brings more development.  He is such a joy in our lives.  Don't get me wrong, we have our times where we have no clue what we are doing and he certainly can't tell us what is wrong, but despite that he's such a light in our lives. 

You are growing up so quickly, Mason!  Now, you are able to actually focus your bright blue eyes on mommy and daddy and even follow us around the room occasionally.  Your grip is getting even stronger and you like to hold onto our fingers, clothing and even mommy's hair when it is down.  You love to lay on your playmat and look at the flashing lights and toys while listening to the music, and you especially love to kick those legs and swing your arms to hit the toys.  Most of the time you would rather be up and about, checking out this all new world around you.  You definitely don't want to miss out on anything!!  You are struggling with taking a bottle from daddy in the evenings since you would much rather have mommy, but we'll keep working on that. 

You are also working really hard to strengthen that little neck of yours and you are doing such a great job!  You don't mind tummy time at all and sometimes you even fall asleep but not before you raise your head up several times.  It is so amazing to see you hold your head up when we are holding you.  I just can't get over how much you are growing.

One of the sweetest moments is every morning when you wake up.  You are such a morning person!  We wake up to your eyes wide open and your sweet grin.  You just love to "talk" to us too.  We just can't get enough of your sweet conversations. 

Mason, you have definitely changed our lives.  Our dynamics as a family have shifted.  Things might not come as easily to us as before, but we would not have it any other way.  You are such a blessing and a joy for us.  To see characteristics of both of us in you is such a gift.  An amazing gift.  We take our job seriously to raise you to be a child of God, to make your mark on this world, to be loving and compassionate to all.  

Always remember that you are loved, by so many people, especially by God.  You will never be alone, my sweet Mason!

We love you to the moon and back!
