6 Months.

Dear Mason,

Oh how cute you are! I thought you were the most beautiful creature way back at the beginning of your life, but holy smokes, you are so stinkin' cute now!

At your six month check-up you weighed 18 1/2 pounds and were 25 1/4 inches long. What a growth spurt in the height area! You are in the 25th percentile for height, 50th for weight, and 75th for head circumference. So.. I guess you are disproportionate. But, have I mentioned cute?
You're quite the bouncer in the Johnny Jump Up. Your dad and I will say "boing, boing, boing", and you smile and jump away.

You have not started crawling, which is okay. I'm not counting on it happening anytime soon since you still are really not liking tummy time. You've found another way of getting around, scooting on your bottom. You can only accomplish this on soft surfaces and haven't figured out how to do it on carpet. It is the funniest thing ever to watch.

Nope, not even with Grandpa's help.

Whenever laying down, you automatically grab your toes. They are always connected.

We love trying to get you to laugh. Your dad will do this silly laugh which makes you laugh and you guys just go back and forth in this big laughing fit, which makes me laugh.

You are also blowing raspberries like crazy. It is probably your new favorite thing to do.

You've shown a lot of interest in food and we decided you are ready to start figuring out this whole eating thing.

You still enjoy all your toys, but are always up for something new. New is exciting.

You love to eat this book at The Grandma and The Grandpa's.

I will often set you like this.And you end up like this.

Which makes you mad after a minute or two.

You love animals. You love to watch them and touch them. Usually they don't enjoy it as much as you do.

You love your Daddy. Whenever he gets home from school, you light up.

You are also really enjoying being outside. Now that the weather is a lot more mild, we spend more time outdoors and you love to listen to the birds and soak it all in.

You bring so much joy into our lives. We are so blessed to have you.

Try not to get too much cuter or I might do something crazy.. like turn you into a child actor.


Love you.
