Here comes santa Clause

MAsn went to see santa the other weak. HE was really good. He didn't really seem to care to be honest, but I wanted to take him for the sake of taking him. Plus the pictures will be nice for him to see when he gets older.

I forgot to post about the new baby. Emily had her baby finally. She was getting so big and she ended up being a little late. She was born on Nov 7th I believe. Sometime around 8 or so. Her little girls name is Mary Fielding. What a cutie. She was 9.5 lbs. WOW. She was a big one. I believe she was around 20.5 inches long. Though Emily is pretty sure they miss measured her. Anyway Emily is having such a good time being a mom. I wonder if Mary and Mason will be good friends.

So tired

So the other day Mason was soooo Tired. I could tell. I tried to put him down but he cried and cried and cried. Usually I put him down for a nap then feed him lunch when he gets up. This time he just wouldn't take his nap so I set him in his High chair and gave him some lunch. I usually try to feed him a little myself but then he get bored and he wants to do it himself so I put the rest of the food on his tray and let him go at it. I walked out of the room and when I came back in this is what I found. .................

LOL :)

Winter Wonder

Wow it seems as though winter is now here. We have had snow for the last few days and it has been really cold. Grammy Tammie had to give Mason his Christmas coat early cause it started to get so cold. He had a coat it just wasn't as warm as this one. He is so cute in it too.

I can't believe there is less then a weak until Christmas. It feels like not long ago I was getting ready for last Christmas. I started to get ready at the end of October to make sure I was able to get everything I needed. This year we will not be able to get as much which I feel bad about but I guess it is the thought that counts right.

Mason is getting so big and so cute. He loves his mom and dad so much.
Grandpa got Him a little Santa suite for the holidays. It's so cute and every time I dress him in it and take him out every one just loves it. He is the cutest little boy in the world, and Im not just saying that because I'm his mom. He really is. lol :)

Anyway I hope you all have a great Christmas and I hope the new years brings many good things and many good memories.

My little monkey

On Halloween we dressed Mason up as a monkey. He was so cute. We took him out trick or treating just for fun. We only went to about 8 doors or so. This one guy was all "your not going trick or treating for him. Your going for your self." Im thinking are you kidding me. This guy actually thinks that I have nothing better to do then go door to door just to get candy. Its like he thinks for some reason I can't just go to the store and buy my own candy. Anyway it was still fun. After words we went to Jesse's moms and met up with my mom and my aunt Jean. She was visiting from texas. It was so great to visit with her and nice that she could see Mason. It was a fun Halloween although I didn't get as many picks of Mason that I wantes. I figured I would just dress him up at home and take more. However the dog ruined that by chewing up his costume. JERK
Anyway here are a few that we did. get.

I love my daddy

I thought I would share this because it is so cute. When ever Jesse comes home from work Mason gets this big smile on his face and goes over to the door to great his daddy. It is the cutest thing how he gets so excited when he gets home. Well yesterday when Jesse got home he decided he wanted to play his game. Well Mason went up to him and well................................... You can see for yourself.
HE loves his daddy so much

Mason is a little climber

Mason has taken a liking to climbing. About 2 weeks ago I turned around and the little guy had flipped a card board box around and sat on top of it. Then he decided that he liked to climb on the coach and go from the coach to the chair back to the coach again. I can't believe how much he is climbing. It is almost scary. I have to watch him so close. Or he will do something crazy. Like the other day. I turned around for a minute and when I turned back toward Mason he was on top of the coffee table sitting there with a big smile on his face. He was so proud of himself. Anyway he is going to be a little adventures Mountian climber or something. :)

scarieness in the crib

The other day I put Mason down for a nap. Now the way the bedrooms are set up are you have to go into one to get to the other. Mason is in the back bedroom so it is hard to hear him so I have a baby monitor to let me know when he was crying. Well Mason was indeed crying but I decided to let him cry for a few minutes in hopes that he would fall asleep.

Well I went out to take the trash out and when I came I didn't hear anything so I was like YIPPY now I can get some stuff done. Well I went to the bathroom and I heard some little bangs and scratching on the front bedroom door. My first thought was dang cats now Mason is going to wake up However then At first I heard Mason clear as day but this time he was just talking away making his little noises. I open the front bedroom door and he is right in front of it. I freaked out. I ran into the back bedroom and the railing to the crib was on the ground. I know I put the railing up cause I remember tied the bumper to the back side of the crib and I had to stretch to tie it. I am so glad Mason didn't get hurt.

Anyway I went to the net and did some research. Apparently Masons Crib recall that happened a couple weeks ago. I guess something with the trigger lock causes it to go of track or something and it creates a gab that a child could suffocate in. I guess 2 kids have died from it which isn't a lot but it is enough to freak me out. So I called Delta the crib manufacturers and it will take 3 weeks for me to get the replacement part. Some recall website or official product safety website said to stop using the crib until you get it fixed. I called them to let them know what happened and asked that what they expect me to do until I get the parts and they said oh its safe don't worry. What the frick if it was safe why did they recall it and if it was safe why did the railing fall of my crib. HELLO. So there solution is not to pull the railing up and down until I get the parts. I guess that what causes it to go off track So that is what I will do and I will make sure and check that is on track when I put him down. I will still worry a bit when I put him down to sleep. I don't know what else to do. If I had the money I would probably just go get a new crib. I hope their solution works.

Taliking talking talking

Mason is getting so big and doing so well.
Mason seems to be starting to talk. Today we were in the store and we walked by an elderly couple and Mason looked at them and said Hi and waved. IT was the cutest thing. He has actually been saying Hi for a couple weeks now. He also says no no no. When we say no to him about something he will go back up to it later and say no no no. He also points and stuff and says was sa was sa. Who knows if he know what he is saying but we always tell him what it is. The other day he looked up and said Ligh ligh. He was pointing at the light. Also when my mom had him the other day he crawled up to the cat and said ki ee ki ee. I can't wait till he starts talking more.

He is not walking yet we think it is because he sees the dogs walking on all fours and he just thinks it is normal. He is of course walking around the furniture just not on his own yet. We have him in day care 2 days a week now so we are hoping that he is influenced by the other kids and starts to walk. I'm not really worried about it yet and I'm pretty sure he will be walking soon.

Masons Crunchies

We buy these gerber lil' crunchies for mason. Mason Loves them. Well he is a little sneaky guy because he keeps stealing his little snack bag out of his diaper bag and eating all his crunchies. It is the cutest thing. Last time he opened the bag and ate them all. This time he just chewwed a hole in the bag and stuck his little fingers in the hole to grab out the crunchies. I decided to take a picture to catch his cutness. I wish I got a better one but the dog (Chloe) started to hicup and Mason got distracted and started lauging and playing with Chloe.

Another lesson in washing clothes

I yet again made a stupid mistake when it comes to washing clothes. I washed Jesse's nice work clothes and all Masons to Clothes he got for his birthday. Well when I pulled them out of the dryer and started to fold them I notice big spots of blue all over the clothes . Apparently Jesse had a pen in his pocket and the pen exploded in the dryer. Although I checked all the pant pockets I failed to check the pockets to his shirts.

Of course this stressed me out cause I didn't want to have to buy all new work clothes for Jesse and new clothes for Mason. I decided to Google it and see what I could find out about getting ink out. Hair spray was the answer however most of what I read on the internet said it was hopeless if I dried them, which of course I did. Well I came across this post and they said they scrubbed the ink with hair spray then used 1 cup of baking soda and 4 scoops of oxi clean filled the washer in hot water and let the oxi clean and baking soda sit for a few minutes then added the clothes and agitated them for a few minutes let them sit for 30 minutes then washed them and all the ink came out. So it was off to the store for some supplies.

Once all was said and done I started the long process of trying to get the ink out. Since the warm water to the washer leaked we had to shut off the hot water valves to the washer so I hade to put 5 pots on the stove let them get hot then I used that water to soak and wash the clothes. Luckily most of the stains came out. I think all but one of Jesse's shirts and that one was stained the most. I'm surprised as much ink came out of it as it did. I'm soaking and washing it again to see if Maybe I can get it out the rest of the way. Anyway what a relief all though one shirt may be ruined I saved the rest of the clothes. Another lesson I had to learn about washing clothes and checking pockets. :)

Pasta salad

Jesse has a friend from work that is having a bbq so Jesse asked me to make a pasta salad. I love pasta salad so I was more then willing. So I made it and now I want to eat it, but I'm afraid if I start I wont stop and there will not be enough for tomorrow. It's just not fair. I get to go to the bbq so I'm sure I will get some tomorrow but I don't want to wait. I have to work though so I will be a bit late. If there is none left by the time I get there I will be sooo mad and sad.

So to make it I used tri color pasta. I put black olives, red pepper, grape tomatos, cubed chedder cheese, peparoni and of course itialian dressing and lots of it. I did taste it just to make sure it was good and it was the best. Hopefully others think so to. Although I wont be bummed if they dont because that leaves left overs for me.

mmm Tomatos are yummy

Grandpa has a garden and he always gives us a bag of tomatoes and other veggies. Mason LOVES Grandpas tomatoes. I always give him tomatos as a snack. I'm trying to stay away from the sweets as much as possible just giving him them once in awhile mostly on special occasions. So in there place I try to give him veggies and fruits. Well I put the tomatoes he gave us on the floor when I walked in the house and just left them there. Well today when I was checking my mail I looked up and little Mason had a tomato in his hand and was eating it like an apple. It was the cutest thing. I am so proud that he likes tomatoes that much and hopefully I can stick with the whole thing of giving him veggies as a snack rather than giving him a ton of sweets.

Whats that

Little Mason is getting so big. The other day he started to point at things and say was sa was sa. I swear he is saying whats that whats that. I guess it is hard to say but it is way cute. I try to just let him touch what he is pointing at then tell him what it is.
When he was at my sisters the other week she put some streamers on the ceiling fan and I think she kept pointing at it and saying Masom whats that. Im not sure though but it would explain it cause he usually points up when he says it.

Masons Party

What a fun day it was on Saturday. We had Masons very first birthday party. I did kinda go all out but I am glad I did cause it was really a lot of fun. I had a lot of help from everyone so that really helped out a lot. Bonnie (Jesse's mom was gracious enough to allow us to have the party at her house. She also decided that it would be a good Idea to have Hamburgers with the hot dogs that I bought so she got the hamburgers and the chips as well. It was very nice of her to help. My mom brought the cake which was the best cake ever. It was so good. My sister brought a very scrumptious potatoes salad and Amy and Erin my good firends brought some watermelon. If I Forgot anything then sorry people. Anyway we started of with a little bbq and conversation of course. I wanted to get a picture of little mason with a party hat so I put the hat on his little head and imediatly got this frown on his face and a little tear dripped down his left eye. It was the cutest thing ever and sad to.
Finally once everyone got there and we started to open presents. I am so thankful that Mason got so many nice toys and outfits. My mom likes to spoil him so between us all he definatiely got plenty. Grammy tammie got him several toys and severals outifts. Emily helped with the toys and got him a nice little book. Jesse and I got Mason 2 outfits a pair of pjs a little wooden train and a baby piano that Im sure he will love. :). Grandma Bonnie got him a little drum a ball contraption thingy that well Im not really sure what it does yet untill I get betteries in it. I think the balls pop out the top. Drew and his kids (Jesse's cousin) got him a little truck and this stuffed cow the moos. Jaymie my good friend got him this little puzzle like thing that makes noises when you put it together. My friend Erin and Amy got him a gigantic bag of legos. Anyway it was great. I think the best part was when we gave Mason a piece of his cake. He grabs a glob of frosting and sticks it in his mouth and he just kept going after that first bite. It was so adorable. Anyway I am so thankfull that My friends and family came. It was such a good time. Next year will probably not be so big but I had to go all out for his number 1. However have the bbq makes me really want to have at least one bbq with friends and family a year. It was the best time.

Where is my phone?

Yesterday I needed to make some phone calls but couldn't find my phone. I looked for awhile and unsuccessful I decided to go about my day. I did some vacuuming, did the laundry and did some dishes. I kinda forgot about the whole thing. Well later I had to do some more laundry so I went down stairs and started to unload the load I did earlier as I was unloading I immediately thought oh crap I better not have washed my phone. I checked the pockets and I found a set of keys but no phone. Phew I thought man that really would have sucked. I finished unloading the load and at the bottom of the washer there lied my phone. I shook my head and said to myself "stupid stupid stupid" with a half grin on my face kinda laughing at myself and dreading the fact that I decided not to get insurance on my phone. Man why couldn't it have been Jesse's phone his has insurance on it I thought. I figured its just material it can replaced but it still really sucks since I have another 4 months till I can get a deal on a new one. Well once I realized I lost all my data I kinda got pretty upset. All my pictures and phone numbers were gone. That feeling was worse then the feeling that I ruined a $200 phone and somehow would have to come up with the money to get a new one that probably wasn't as nice. Anyway I went up stairs and of course Jesse was trying to make me feel better. "Don't beat your self up. Things happen. At least you didn't scratch and ruin a brand new 1,200 tv" (which is another totally entire story in itself) Still though it wasn't the phone as much as it was the data. Anyway of course I was also thinking of the money we had to spend to get a new one which we don't really have with all that has happened last month with the cars and getting ready for Masons Party. Anyway then I realized I guess I could use my old phone for awhile which will work for awhile but it pretty much dies as soon as I charge it so it was only a short time solution. I was still upset about the data. Then Jesse reminded me that most my contacts should be on the old phone. I can't believe I didn't think about that. I was so happy. I wouldn't lose all my phone numbers after all. Also Jesse informed me that if you take the phone apart and let it dry for a few days sometimes it will start working again and I should be able to get the rest of my numbers and pictures, it just wouldn't work very well if at all. So their was still the problem with getting a new phone since the old one wasn't really going to work out since it dies so quick and I drive to salt lake for work and sometimes with a baby. Also winter was coming up and Jesse really doesn't want me to have a dead phone when I Drive all that way. We were about to go to the mall to look at phones when I said "wait a minute when I got my credit card they told me that if I pay for my phone with my card then it is insured." So I called them up and sure enough that is the case. They cover the amount of the phone minus $50 up to a max payout of $100. Since I paid about $130 for it I would get $80 toward a new phone. Then comes the bad news, in order to have a claim approved I had to have the original sales receipt. Come on now people who saves the sales receipt for that long unless your OCD or something. Ok so I do usually try to save the receipts on the big things like that but they usually end up lost somewhere since I am so unorganized. I would probably call it reverse OCD. (JK) anyway so I thought maybe Verizon had some documentation of when I bought the phone and how much it was. So I called them. First I was asking if I would get any deals on a phone and the guy was all "well you can in 4 months" and I said "well I kinda need a phone now cause I washed mine in the washing machine." "Oh he said well you have insurance on your phone so all you would have to pay is the $50." It took me back for a sec cause I never add insurance to my phone. I was afraid to say anything that would make him take that statement back. I said "well is the insurance on the other phone" He said "yeah you have it on both" I was like are you sure I don't remember doing that" "Yes I'm sure he said" what a relief I thought. Man so the whole situation wasn't as bad as I thought. So I called the insurance people and now I am getting a new phone today. Now that I think about it I slightly remember adding the insurance thinking I'll just take it off later cause I'm sure I wont need it and it is a waste of money. I guess God was looking over me cause I totally forgot about it and this is really the only time that I really needed that insurance. It's funny cause to me it is still a waste to keep it because if you think about it I have had a cell phone for about 7 years and if I paid the $6 a month for all that time that adds up to a whopping $420 and I only really used it once. Well Jesse doesn't agree so more then likely it will stay for this phone and future phones as well. All I know is now that I have paid for it and didn't miss the money I am glad cause I would be missing even more money now. Anyway so as I was finishing up this blog there was a knock at the door, so I got up to answer it and there was the delivery man handing my my phone. That is so Crazy I just called them after 6pm yesterday and I already had the phone in my hands just before 10am and it shipped from TN. It is a crazy time when you get a package from across the country in less then 16 hours.

So much love for one little guy.

I love my little guy so much. It's so crazy how much personality and how much little Mason has grown. It is just crazy. It seems so weird but the more I get to know him and the more he grows the more I love him and the closer I feel to him. Is that wrong? I feel kinda bad saying that my love grows for him each day cause I feel like all that love should have already been there. Of course I loved him from the beginning but I guess it was kind of like an unknown love in a way since I didn't really know him. Maybe I just love what he is becoming and each and every milestone and little personality trait he gets I fall in love with over and over again and have so much pride for that it feels like it is more love because there is more to love. Does that sound weird to anyone. Anyway I hope people don't think I am a bad mom for that. I really don't know what I would do without the little guy. He makes me so happy and he fills a void in my life that was definitely not there before. Anyway I am posting a few pictures of Mason from when he was first born to now. Kind of like a little tribute to his first year of life.

My little Clepto

Ok so I was at walmart the other day buying stuff for Masons birthday party. I had Mason in his stroller cause all I needed was some plates cups and a small toy. Well I checked out and went to my car and as I was getting Mason out of his stroller I noticed some plates laying in there with him. I knew they were not plates I grabed cause they were the one year old plates for girls. So my little guy commited his first crime. I guess he must have grabed them to play with them as I was shopping. I thought it was kinda humerous but when I went in to return them the walmart greeter didn't really find it as humerous as I did. Oh well they didn't seem mad they just kinda looked at me with a blank look and took the plates. Oh well. I just hope he doesn't take that habbit on to his later years.

The Zoo

Last Saturday Mason and I went to the Zoo for a birthday party for my friends little girls Alyia. We also took Darien, Jesse's Nephew. We all had so Much fun. We got Alyia a doll and some playdo. I was so happy because she really seemed to love the doll a lot. It is always hard to shop for people especially little kids cause you never know what they will like. Sometimes it seems that the boxes and the paper is the real present. Anyway after the party we walked around and lookes at the animals. I like the elephants and the Rhinos the best. I think dariens favorite part was the Carosole ride. It was a lot of fun. I look forward to the day when Mason really enjoys going places like Dinosour park, the zoo and all the other fun places their is to take little kids.
