Wowsa!!! Mason is spoiled beyond words. Rarely does he sleep during the day, but today he is tired and fighting it HARD. The only place he will sleep is outside. And it's too dagum hot to be out there any long length of time. It's not so bad in the shade with the breeze, but not great either. :)

Today when we were all visiting we were taking guesses at how much Mason weighed. I thought around 9 lbs, Martha guessed 10 lbs. So, uncle Ty weighed himself and then weighed himself holding Mason.......................................................................................................................
10 lbs exactly!!!!!!!
I can't believe it. He's growing soooo fast!!!
Mason and I continued our adventure that evening!! We drove to Arlington to watch Daddy play softball. Mason did great on the 30 minute drive there. He just looked around and then eventually fell asleep. I did have one "New mom" mishap, though! Nathan has worked our stroller every time we've used it so far...so I didn't know how to open it up. I tried for about 5 minutes and couldn't figure it out. Grrr!! So, I just carried his carrier and diaperbag to the fields, lol.
Daddy came straight out of the dugout to see us!! It was awesome to see him!! I surprised Nate by making Mason an FTP (team name) onesie. I think Nate liked it because he went and showed the team. It was a big HIT!!
We had a great time!!
Yesterday was a BIG day for mommy and Mason. We got out of the house, just us two!! Mason's Nana and Uncle Ty have been great to get us out of the house a few times a week. We have lunch and hang out...to keep Mase and I from getting cabin fever. :)
Our first outing was an adventure, to say the least, since we are driving the big FJ. I have to put Mason's carrier in the backseat, climb in and then snap his carrier into the base, get out and them climb into the driver seat. :) I'm not going to complain about the exercise, though! Mason did really good for our outing. We first went to Wally World for forumla (still supplementing with the nursing), dog food, etc. We walked around for a while. There was nothing but elderly people there and I couldn't count on 2 hands how many stopped and talked to Mason. It was really nice! After Walmart we went to Ross for a bit. I found Mason a new diaperbag and a super cute Puma oneside. It's a 3-6 months, so I am hoping it fits when his Puma tennis shoes fit.
Mason was perfect for our whole outing, but as we were checking out at Ross I saw that look on Mason's face and I knew we were in trouble. Mason was making a surprise in his diaper. What I didn't know was how bad it was going to be. We had to go straight home, change and bathe!!!
It was a fun day, though!!! I love our monkey!!!

As if I have to say this, Mason is totally spoiled already. Well, that's to be expected because he was spoiled before he was even born. But, he is so spoiled that he doesn't want to sleep unless he is in my arms, Nate's or his Nana's. He doesn't care for his bassinet, swing or bouncer. He will not sleep in his crib, either. Although, his crib is starting to grow on him. We change and dress him in there and he just looks around. I think he likes his room. At night he sleeps in bed with Nathan and I, usually in my arms.
Well, today we made BIG progress. He fell asleep in my arms this morning so I tried the bassinet. I had a fleece blanket in there to make it warmer, and I think that did the trick. He slept so sound in the bassinet for an hour!!!!!!! Mama turns into the energizer bunny during times like this. I took a bath, boiled bottles, did laundry, edited/posted/printed pictures, got his bath ready, packed his diaper bag, etc. Then he woke up. I took him to the computer room with me and he was content, so I put him in his bouncer. He sat in that for about 20 minutes. Then I bathed and dressed him and held him for a bit. Then I opened our side door and put Mason's swing in front of it. He sat in it for about 15 minutes. He likes to be outside, so I thought having the door open would help. :)
I am one proud mama today! Baby steps............
