Forever Love

As I was getting Mason ready for bed, I peered over at the multi picture frame I made for him a while ago.  It contains pictures of him from newborn to about one and a half years.  I studied the picture his Dad took of him, minutes after his birth.

Yo Gabba Gabba

I have been wanting to take Mason to a live concert of one of his favorite shows but it seemed I either missed the date or I'd be $150 poorer.  I love my child but I'm not willing to spend $80 per ticket for costumed people to run around and sing!  He's not yet 3 and I was also not sure he'd be will…
