Mason is now one! He is his own little person...with his own personality, attitude, and humor. He's my heart! We've had a long but short year all together. With many health concerns all of which I am so thankful to say have either resolved themselves or are not going to impair Mason's life at all, the year was a rollercoaster ride! But we made it and Ryan and I are enjoying Mason's independent outlook. He still though is very attached to his mommy, which i can't say I hate! Its nice to be loved so unconditionally even if you did just discipline! I'm looking forward to year number two and so see him grow into a toddler who talks a bit better! Although he's learned: daddy, mama, papa, nnna(for nndi-andrea), baby, thank you (sometimes), and most recently ease for please! He has two teeth and eats like he has a mouth full! He loves food..exploring...and cuddling and playing with his mommy and daddy! He likes hanging with his cousins too! The Lord has indeed blessed me with my son! I love you Mason Ryan...life is soooooo much better with you here!
Mr. Mason decided it was time to start walking on Thursday! I can't believe it! No he's not fully walking on his own but he took one step to Ma and one to me and one to his Aunt Nndi! ( Nngel I'm sure he would have walked to you to had you'd been there!) He got so excited and was so proud of himself! I'm starting a new hobby! My husband got me an awesome camera! He knew that I've been wanting to take up photography for such a long time! I signed up in High School to take a class but it was too expensive...and then again in college...so now we are trying the homeschool approach :) I might sign up for a community class but just having fun figuring things out on my own! It takes amazing pictures though...so clear!
Eight months have never gone by so fast before! Mason is now eight months old and is crawling, and walking ( as long as he can touch something) and is now having seperation anxiety! He will cry and scream unless he is being held or at least able to touch and climb on you. Its very difficult to disicipline and have his sad puppy dog eyes with huge tears flowing out of look at me with such sadness. But I know I have to keep it up and be consistant with him. Being a parent is hard work! Any ideas on this "seperation Anxiety" thing and how to deal with it? And how do i get him to stop screaming when he's not getting what he wants...(i'm already smacking his mouth and hands and legs...and no its not abuse!) Thanks!
wow! i'm 27 years old now! its seems kinda strange to think about my age! i don't feel like i should be 27! i had a great day and thanks for all the well wishes!
ryan and i are asking for prayers on behalf of our little boy mason. we took him to the doctor to check his ears for an infection. luckily his ears are clear and he's just fighting a nasty cold. however we went in for a simple check and left the office with refferals to an opthalmologist and a neurologist! mason's eyes do go back and forth unless he is focused on an object in front of him. He doesn't seem to focus on things unless its about two feet or less away! he also has since he was about two months old..been "shaking". ryan and i just thought he was excited and or angry..he usually does it when he's mad or wants a toy he sees...the doctor said those are tremors. so he wants to check his eyes and neuro system out . both could be from one issue or a couple or the answer we are praying for is that theres nothing going on that its just a developmental issue which he will grow out of. Please please keep him in your prayers! Thank you.
