***He is walking about 75% of the time. He still can't stand up from sitting yet unless he pulls on on something, but he is really working at it. Watching him walk is hysterical because it reminds me of a zombie.
***He will finally let us put shoes on his feet without screaming. He still isn't fond of them and will pull them off if left unsupervised, but its progress so we'll take it.
***He is mimicking us a lot with words after we say them. He now knows the dogs names and which name goes with which dog. However, he won't say Aubrey's name. Go figure.
***He knows where his ears, belly, and eyes are and attempts to call them by name.
***He can follow simple directions and has started nodding his head when we ask questions.
***We haven't really had any success adding new foods to his diet except for ketchup. And he is obsessed with it. Like, sucking it off his fingers/food his obsessed. He makes a huge mess with it but it helps him eat and keeps him entertained while we eat so I try not to worry about the mess too much for now.
***He is still working on his bottom molars. Luckily, he is making good use of the teething toys we bought for Aubrey that she never used. If he can't find one of those, his fingers stay in his mouth instead.
***I took both kids to Discovery Place Kids for the first time this year. It was Mason's first time really playing with the toys there and he was so excited. Especially when we got to the water area.
**He had his first carousel ride and he was fascinated.
***It finally warmed up enough to get the water table and baby pool out for the kids and Mason took to both instantly.
***We took our first boat ride of the summer and even though he looks like a turtle in his life jacket Mason loves being on the boat.
