Mason-18 months

Our littlest guy turned 18 months old on the 9th this month. Although he was born weighing the least and was a peanut for a while, we can safely say he is no longer a string bean. He is stout and a short but solid 26 pounds. Mason is full of personality. He makes the funniest faces and walks with a signature strut that makes people smile. We've recently nick-named him Augustus Gloop from the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory because sometimes it seems he is a bottomless pit. He really loves fruit and turns his nose up at most meat. Mason is also our screamer, if he wants something or doesn't like something his first response is to scream- we are working on that. He is our only baby that we taught some sign language, he knows more, please, all finished, drink, and sleepy. He is also beginning to talk a little. His first word was more which he quickly learned so that he could get more food. He also knows hello, doggie, shoe, choo-choo, and drink. Mason has just started to love the Baby Einstein videos. We took them on a recent trip in the car and he was mezmerized. It was pretty funny to watch his reactions from the front seat. This kid also LOVES his daddy and will choose him over me any day.

As cliche as it sounds, it is hard to believe that our baby is more boy and less baby with each passing day. He really wants to do what his brothers are doing and is less willing to just sit and cuddle. His personality fits perfectly between Cameron and Gavin's. He has some of Gavin's spice, but also a lot of Cameron's mildness. If he were a salsa he would safely be a medium. We've got the whole range of heat in our house. It is clear that our little Mase has a zeal for life and just wants to get out there and explore the world around him. His brothers both adore him and everyone just loves to be around him. We are grateful he is ours.
