Here I grow again!

I realized that I haven't blogged about Mason's developments in a while so here are a bunch of new things for month 7 & 8.

  • Laying on stomach to look under things (like the bed - where the kitty is hiding, under the desk - where a toy rolled)

  • Loves to eat teething biscuits and will occupy him for …

    Da da da da da-da train

    While eating dinner tonight Mason started whispering something so I listened and sure enough it was 'da da'.  We've been encouraging him to say it more (and louder).  So cute.

    What happens when you walk into Zellers to buy a $40 toy?

    You walk OUT with $100 worth of toys!

    Clayton and are I not really the type of parents that goes crazy and buys Mason tons of toys.  Considering his age, he has very little to play with.  I sold the jumperoo & the piano chair because he had grown out of them.  So I see the Vtech Sit to Stand Lea…

    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…

    The Family Book


    On October 22nd I received an email from Urban Mommies that I had won a contest I had entered a few weeks prior.  The email only said that I had won a book, so I scoured their website trying to find what book I had won.  Finally I found it and the book I had won was ‘the Family book‘ which is s…

    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…
