[Mason] Ten Months.

Sunday, May 19, 2013

I had every intention of writing this post yesterday but with all the events that went on yesterday... it ended up being today :) Yesterday we hung out around the house in the morning while Mason took a nap and then we headed out to run some errands at Home Goods (they have such great stuff! I only wish I had an endless bank account and some place to put all the stuff I wanted to buy!) and then to Target. We finally found a rug for our living room!! Ever since we moved into our new condo, I've been wanting to get a rug since we have pergo laminant floors and Mason isn't always super stable sitting and I don't want him to fall over and hit his head. But all the rugs either cost too much or were ugly so I'm so happy we finally found one (and I actually really love how it looks!). We then got ready and headed out to Emma's birthday party at BounceU, a bounce house place (www.bounceu.com). They have such fun bounce houses, not your typical ones, but ones with basketball hoops, slides, obstacle courses, etc. SO FUN. I bounced in one of the "wrestling ring" ones with Addie for a while. They have these HUGE boxing gloves that you can put on and bounce and hit each other, but we just bounced since Addie is too little for that. Then we moved into another room and Emma wanted to do the obstacle course where you climb through a hole, through some punching bags, through a tunnel, up a wall and then down a slide. WOW. We did that a couple times and then Addie wanted to go so I went with her. We actually went through the obstacle course FOUR times! You know she wasn't tired but I sure was so it was good that it was time to go have pizza since it gave me an excuse to sit down lol. Even though I was getting tired, since she's only 2 and usually says "no!" I took that opportunity to the max and went as many times as she wanted since I didn't think that opportunity would happen again any time soon lol. Overall it was so much fun for all of us and Emma had a great birthday. After the party, we went back to their house to watch her open presents and then we came home, wayyyyyyyyyyyyy after Mason's bedtime, and went to bed. It was a great day!

But, back to the post at hand! First of all, I would like to wish a very happy birthday to everyone who had a birthday yesterday, but specifically a very happy, happy...

My little Mason... he grows and changes SO much each day. I just love to watch him discover new things.

ten months stats :

- not sure about my weight since i don't go to the doctor again until i'm one (insert mommy freaking out!) but i probably weigh about 21-22lbs
- i've graduated to wearing more t-shirts and shorts/pants than onesies! i still do wear them occasionally (size 6-12 months) but i mostly wear 9 month or 6-12 month t-shirts now.

- i also eat 2 pouches of food a day...usually sweet potatoes for lunch (my FAVORITE) and some sort of fruit for dinner
