Milestones this month
*Mason finally had a language explosion. It seemed like all we got for months was momma, dada, and bye bye but that has finally changed. He can now say uh oh, dokie (doggie or duckie, depending), ba (ball or Boo, the nickname of our dog Bailey), and yelo (hello). It is amazing how much he can understand and when his language catches up to his understanding we are in trouble, I do believe.
*He took his first step, but we are not 100% sure it wasn't an accident. He refuses to let go of things and attempt to move his feet at the same time. He can and will stand for quite a while by himself. He just prefers to move by crawling so we'll keep practicing and see what happens.
*He can climb really well, including climbing the stairs and the picnic table (more gray hair is sprouting on my head from watching this happen)
*Poor little guy had his first stomach bug/virus and it was terrible on all of us. Aubrey started with it Easter Sunday and was good by Wednesday just for Mason to start up that night. It was a long week that week.
*He has started some serious food strikes. The 5 major food groups according to him are waffles, PB&J, graham crackers, peaches, and milk. He pretty much refuses anything else and will promptly throw it to the floor for the eagerly waiting dogs.
*He enjoyed helping Aubrey find Easter eggs and playing with the empty ones afterwards.
*He had his first taste of sugary goodness this Easter and it was like watching an addict. He loved it.
*He is loving the warm weather and being outside. He gets so excited when we go outside. The only part of being outside he doesn't like is touching grass. He just outright refuses to touch it with any body part.
*I took him to his first visit to the airport overlook and he was giddy with excitement. I wondered if the loud sounds would hurt his ears, but he loved it.
Gma was helping him hunt for eggs.
Poor little guy was so weak and tired from the stomach virus, he just fell over and went to sleep.
