7 Months Old

To say that I'm obsessed with Mason would be an understatement.
He's the reason I get up every morning.
Literally, and metaphorically.
I cannot wait to snuggle him every morning and smother him with kisses!
This past month I have grown extremely attached to him and I constantly want to be cuddling or playing with him.
He is SO cute and hilarious, I could watch him smile and laugh all day long.
And so that is what I do.
And I LOVE it.
I knew that being a mom would be the world's greatest blessing,
but until you experience it for yourself, it's hard to really understand just how amazing motherhood is.
I can't believe it's been 7 months since he decided it was his time to come into the world;
it feels like every month just goes by faster and faster!
I wish time would just stand still and that he would stay my little baby that loves his mommy's kisses and lights up when I enter the room.
BUT, I guess in the mean time, I'll just soak it all up and enjoy every second of it while I have the chance!

Mason at 7 months, you...

-Are 15 lbs 8 ozs
-Love sweet potatoes, pears, and peas
-Are always smiling all day long (until like 5 or 6 pm... then we really have to work to get you to smile)
-Have the world's most adorable laugh!
-Sleep well these days (you usually wake up twice a night, but sometimes you only woke up once, so there is some hope!)
-Since your acid-reflux is still really bad, you don't eat a lot at one feeding, so the doctor said you probably won't be sleeping through the night until it subsides and you're able to eat more
-Love mommy and daddy's kisses
-Love when I or anyone sings to you
-Can sit up on your own
-Still drool all over everything, but no teeth yet!
-Love to stand, kick, and bounce up and down
-Are the happiest, most chatty little thing... I love listening to you babble on all day long, it's so stinkin cute!

I feel so blessed to spend every second of every day with you Mason.
You truly are the cutest, most precious baby in the world,
and I love you so much!

A Very Bieber Christmas

I suppose this is what I get for putting Chase in charge of picking out the wrapping paper this year...

... lesson learned.

We're about to have ourselves a Very Merry Bieber Christmas.

Family Photos

As you can tell by me re-doing our blog,
we got our family photos back.
If you haven't already seen them on facebook,
you can check them out by clicking here.

Here are some of my favorites though.
Actually, they are all my favorites.
But I'm too impatient to upload all 20 or so of them,
so here are a select few.

Life Lately.

I didn't realize how much catching up I had to do until I was browsing through all of the pictures I've taken over the past 3 weeks.
I've been terrible at blogging and so this long post is what I get.
I think the easiest and best way to catch you up is to just show you,
so here it goes...

In the past 3 weeks...

Chase grew a manly beard.

I did not.

We moved.

We met some interesting people...

Mason has decided sweet potatoes are his favorite.
Mason can sit up on his own now.

2 new beautiful babies have entered the world...
My newest nephew, Clayton Isaac Walker.
And Mason's betrothed, Evelyn Jane Leach.

I've had some incredible luck (I don't think I've won anything since the 5th grade),
but in the past week, I've won 2 things...

A family photo shoot by the talented Keira Grace (more pictures to come soon).

And this pretty little dress by Shabby Apple via a giveaway on i believe in unicorns.

We went and saw the Temple lights.
And we played in the rain,
and liked it.

All in all, it's been a great 3 weeks.
And I'm about to have an even BETTER 3 weeks.
Because Chase just got home from taking his last final.
And now he's all mine.
YAY! :)
