No more, Mum!

Mason just started saying 'no' by turning his head side to side!  I was feeding him desert and when he was finished he shook his head!  So I figured he was just goofin' around and dI kept feeding him and sure enough 'no no'.

Ha! My kid is so smart :)

In Memory of all the lost little monkeys

I'm sitting in my computer chair, Mason is in my lap and I have tears streaming down my face.  Today is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day.  I have been fortunate to not have experienced this type of loss and my one and only pregnancy has resulted in my beautiful Son Mason.  I am dedicating th…

No longer a wittle baby!

I seriously do not know where 7 months went!  I was having a great cuddling session with Mason yesterday and pulled him up onto my chest for a hug, I then flashbacked to when he was just a few days old.  Clayton and I took turns having him sleep on our chest, this little 7lb bundle of joy who fit pe…

All clear!

Today marks the *first* day Mason has completely been free of eczema, save for the small rough patches on his knees (from crawling).  There are no red angry patches on this kid!  Hooray! Hooray!

Sleep through the what?

We had a rough go of it last night and by 'we', I mean Monkey and Me.  12:30 is when I went to sleep, 12:30 is when Mason wakes up (went to bed at 9).  I tuck him in, sing a song or two and leave the room.  At 1:30 I hear him grunt (tossing and turning), so I go back into his room, tuck him in, sin…

One of those days or one of MY days

My son is crawling around shirtless (cause it's covered in peas and I haven't got any motivation to put another shirt on him), he has a pair of jeans on and one sock (he took the other one off, no clue where it went).  The living room is slightly messy because I haven't been home much day to clean i…

Picky eater or refined palate?

The little dude will not eat peas, carrots and anything containing peas and carrots.  What the heck am I supposed to feed him, he's getting bored of squash, cheese, broccoli and cauliflower and sweet potatoes!  What else is there that doesn't contain peas and carrots!?

And forget about meat, Maso…

Mason is bored with crawling

So he taught himself how to stand today...


I walked into the living room and stopped dead.  It took a few seconds for my brain to comprehend what he was doing, then I screamed for Clayton to come and see.  I then rushed (right passed him) to get the camera to take a picture.  He's still standi…

New duds * rum'n'coke

If I have one complaint about being a new Mom it's being in the doldrums and in that blah land is a very sad wardrobe.  Recently I took out all the clothes that I no longer wear out of the closet, it was a pretty big pile.  What I was left with was prepreg tshirts (over stretched from the belly and …

A typical day in my life - by Mason

I kept Mommy up a few times last night.  I typically wake up at 3:30 every morning for fun! I even got a bottle, not sure I was hungry but I drank it.  Heehee.  I then had a bit of a cat nap and woke up when Daddy was ready to get up for work at 6am.  Daddy did the routine stuff, you know...changed…

Mason gives the saying 'spit shine the floors' a whole meaning!

Mason's first words...sorta


We are now into double syllables! YAY for Mason.  He's always been a talker but it was more drawn out "aaaaaaaaaaaa" that was very guttural.  Glad to hear some new sounds.  A 'baba' is what we call his bottle and isn't a real surprise since it's the word I probably say the most.…

Over the half way point!

Six months is a milestone.  Six months ago Mason came into the world. Six months I have been a Mommy.  Six more months until I return to work....eek!

Well more than 6 months have passed because Mason will be 7 months on the 21st.  7 months is much more closer to a year and wow that will be a HUGE …

The furniture ain't safe either!

Mason Climbing

"Hi Mommy" Mason looks at me as if to say.

"I was just um seeing what was up here, umm you kinda need to dust more often"

Guess it's really time to babyproof the house!

The animals are no longer safe

No more mobile!

This is how I walked into Mason's nursery this morning.  Busted!  Ever since Mason started crawling a few weeks ago he has improved his core strength so much that he's able to sit unassisted and is now reaching for anything in his grasp.  Including his poor mobile animals who happily dangled above…

What do you have against socks Mason?

Mason is sitting in his car seat waiting for us to head out.  He's watching some kiddie show on tv.  A sock is in one hand, going to the mouth.  The other sad sock is lying on the floor.

Our son prefers to have naked feets.


Mason is now saying 'Mummmm' which of course I translate to 'mom', not to be confused with Mmmmm which is what he exclaims after each bite of squash.  He is loving solids! We love being new varieties to see how he'll react and so far so good!

I learn as I grow

Being a baby is an amazing adventure!  As adults, if we want to learn something, we seek it out.  As a baby, it just comes to you each day.  Hmmm today I will laugh! today I will smile! today I will crawl!

I am watching Mason move around the room, exploring his surroundings and remember that jus…

September, already!?

So I'm walking to Mason's room to check on him as I just put him down to have a nap.  I'm thinking while I'm walking about what this blog is going to be about.  I think maybe I'll write about how great Mason is at napping.  I put him right down and away to sleepy land he goes.  I peer over the crib …

Question to Mason

I ask my Baby Boy, "Why must you always poop while you are in your piano sit and play? It's not a toilet!".  As I pull him out of it and take him to his playmat on the floor.  Why did I do this? because many times while Mason is poopin' away (and me not noticing) a sludgy poo travels down his leg …
