I can’t say enough how fast our time with Mason has flown by. We blink and he’s growing, so here we are at 6 months.
Oh Mason, you amaze me. All that you are learning and grasping already in this world.
You still have the biggest and bluest eyes and they do not miss anything. Constantly staring and taking in all of the details around you. I seriously would not want to take you on in a staring contest. Hands down, you would win.
You seem to be in constant motion. Grabbing anything within reach, then putting any items in your mouth. Sitting up while playing with your toys. Rolling around all over the place. Smiling at us. Laughing with us. Reaching for us. The simplest of things, yet milestones at this age. We forget where we all started from, how we had to learn all of these things as well. It’s exciting to see the developmental growth you are making, Mas. We are definitely proud of you!
Can I mention again that you are reaching for us?? You continue to reach straight towards your momma’s heart when you do that. Love it.
You have started eating foods on a regular basis in the evenings and you LOVE it. You get so excited when you see that bowl of food coming at you. Your little hands start reaching out and your mouth starts moving. I can’t feed you fast enough sometimes. Peas, zucchini, green beans and avocado have all been sampled. You are happy with most of them…avocado didn’t receive quite the same response, but I think I need to work on the presentation.
Life with you Mason is not dull and I can imagine this is only the beginning of an entire new active little boy. I will say that parenthood is hard. Hands down, the hardest thing I have ever done. Yet at the same time, I have never known anything as rewarding. Amidst the tears and uncertainty, we have you, Mason. Our wonderful and perfect little boy who loves his momma and daddy.
Can I tell you Mason, that I continue to look at you in amazement and wonder that you are a part of your daddy and me? Who we are is woven through you. I pray that we can lead, guide and shape you into a strong and compassionate person. We love you always and forever.
