Our little Mason Man is 16 months old and as always, I can't believe it. The 16th of each month seems to come by way too quickly. Mason is at such a fun age and I've loved being able to watch him explore and learn new things.
Teeth: Mason continues to get more and more teeth every month. Along with what he already has, he now has 2 new teeth just barely poking through on the top. These 2 top teeth haven't seemed to really bother him much.
Sleeping: Mason is still sleeping through the night like a champ. He usually sleeps about 12 hours straight. When he does wake up it's usually due to a bad dream, hearing a car door slam from outside, or he doesn't feel good. Mason still takes 2 naps during the day. I'm not sure how much longer he'll need the two naps, but for now it continues to work perfectly. He won't last past 12 in the afternoon without his morning nap and he won't last past 6 at night without his afternoon nap, so he continues to take 2 naps a day.
I love watching this little guy sleep. He always finds the silliest positions to sleep in. He's usually: cuddled up to his doggy night light, wrapping his arms around his blanky, or laying on his tummy with his bum up in the air.
Eating: Mason is a great eater! His favorite foods right now are: peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, cheese tortilla pizzas, vanilla yogurt with frozen fruit mixed in, macaroni and cheese, pizza, french fries, and chicken noodle soup. Mason is also a sucker for anything sweet, snacky (cheetoes), and chocolaty.
Movement: Our little Mason is WALKING!! He picked up walking last Friday, January 17th. He started the day out by crawling, but by the end of the day he was walking laps around our house. I love to watch him walk. He'll put his little arms out to stabilize himself and he'll walk around laughing with a huge smile on his face. Watching his little chubby legs take little steps is so darn cute to watch.
Mason loves to push his walker up and down the hallway going 90 MPH. My sister jokes around that Mason is a 80 year old man, who can't go anywhere without his walker.
Right now Mason is very attatched to his daddy. Whenever Casey is home, Mason will not do anything else except have Case hold him. When Mase wakes up from his afternoon nap, he'll point to the window. I'll lift him up and we'll usually sit there together for about 15 min. waiting for Casey to come home. As soon as he sees our blue Aveo pull into the driveway Mason starts laughing and jumping up and down. I love to watch the love Mason has for his dad.
We feel so blessed that Mason is part of our family! We love watching him learn new things everyday. We love this little guy!!
