4 Months Old

Seriously?... It's been 4 months already?!

Mason at 4 months old you are just such a joy to be around! You talk and smile all day long and pretty much only get cranky when you're hungry, tired, or driving in the car.

At 4 months you...

-Are 12 lbs 5 oz (10th%) and 23 3/4 ins (25th%)
-Love when we sing (you particularly love Christmas songs)
-Love to snuggle up with your blankie and pacifier
-Suck on anything and everything in sight
-Are one hungry baby
-Are over your digestive problems and poop pretty much at least once a day
-Hate driving in the car and cry the whole way to and from a destination
-Still love to be swaddled
-Fall asleep on your tummy when we're trying to do tummy time
-Cry if someone makes a very sudden and loud noise (aka sneezes or coughs)
-Love bath time
-Follow me with your eyes everywhere I go, but as long as I'm in your sight, you're a happy camper!

Laying on our bed all snuggled up with your blanket is your favorite...

Here's a full-body shot... you're getting SO big!

You're seriously addicted to your blanket and pacifier...
You love sucking on your hands!
Asleep during an attempted tummy time...

We sure do love each and every little quirk about you little guy!
Happy 4 months! :)

Mason's Blessing!

This post is much overdue, but Mason had his big day on September 4th and received a beautiful baby blessing from his dad!

He did so well during the blessing and was in such a pleasant mood that whole day.
I truly believe that he was filled with the Spirit which allowed him to be super calm and at ease.
It was such a wonderful and emotional experience for both me and Chase and I'm glad we were able to share it with so many family members and friends there.
I am filled with so much love and gratitude for my family and for a loving Heavenly Father for entrusting me to be the mother of such a sweet and gentle spirit.
Every day I'm reminded of how blessed I am to have such an amazing husband and a beautiful, healthy, baby boy.

Mason I hope you know that your dad and I love you SO much and are so grateful for you!

2 Year Anniversary!

Today is mine and Chase's 2 year anniversary!
I can't believe it's already been 2 years and yet, at the same time,
I can't even remember life before Chase.
These have been the best 2 years of my life and I don't know what I would do or where I would be without him.
He truly is the love of my life and I couldn't ask for a better husband or father to Mason.
2 years ago I didn't think we could get any happier...
But then I look at us now, and we love each other so much more than we did and that love just keeps growing more and more everyday.
Thank you for the most amazing 2 years,
I can't wait to see what our future brings!

2 years ago...

1 year ago (plus a few weeks)... I was pregnant and didn't even know it!

Now... our happy little fam :)

Happy Anniversary babe, I love you!

Evolution of Sleep

Mason, this is your sleep schedule at night thus far...

0-1 month: 30-45 min max
1-2 months: 2 1/2 hours max
2-3 months: 4 hours max (but very rare)
3-4 months: 6 hours!

That's right... you slept for SIX hours last night and set yourself a new all-time record!
You slept for 5 hours 2 nights ago and I thought the world was going to end because it was too good to be true. But then last night... WOW. You surely have outdone yourself! We are so grateful for you and your long sleep intervals at night. You have come such a long way and we are so proud of you! People used to say this day would come, but to be honest, I didn't really believe that it ever would. Thanks for 2 awesome nights of sleep in a row buddy, keep it up!
We love you!
