Self Admiration

One of the cutest things about this age is that Mason loves to look at himself in the mirror. Before every bath we sit on the counter and he admires himself in the mirror and he just laughs and smiles. It's like every time he sees himself it's a whole new experience and it's adorable!


Mason is 6 months old

Can you believe it...a half a year has gone by since my beautiful baby boy was born. Where does the time go? What a amazing addition to our lives. He is getting so big. So big in fact that he can sit-up on his own, entertain himself with his toys and is starting to eat baby foods now. Happy Half-Year Birthday my sweet Mason!
PS - Doesn't he look like a little man in this picture?...My baby doesn't look like a baby anymore, but what a STUD!


Silly Santa Baby

We seriously couldn't get enough of pictures with Mason in his Santa hat. We must have taken a few dozen. It was just too cute! He is such a ham when the camera comes out too...he knows just what to do. He is such a happy baby.

This is the stuffed animal that Mason loves to play with at my mom's house. We don't know what it is about this animal but he loves to try to eat his face. He looks at it...grabs it...and quickly tries to inhale him. It is absolutely hysterical to watch!

My First Christmas Present

Mason's very first Christmas present was given to him by Jennifer and JR. We went to a Christmas party the night before and Jen & JR spent the night at our house. The next morning Jennifer suprised Mason with cute little elephant toys that sing. It was lots of fun and Mason really enjoyed opening his first Christmas present.


Mason & Santa

I took Mason to see Santa a second time, to try and get some pictures for our Christmas card. I went to a Christmas store in downtown Grapevine that had a Santa just for fun. It was line and you could take your own pictures. A great idea my mom had was to take Mason's picture in front of one of the trees that they had decorated in the store. What a beautiful background. All the pictures turned out so good. So there is a neat idea for all you mommy photographers out there.


Sick Baby with an Ear Infection

On the last day at the lake , Mason started coughing and pulling at his right ear. So on Monday December 1st we got him in to see the pediatrician, and he did have an ear infection. It was his first time being sick, so mommy and daddy felt so bad for him. He was really not too cranky, but he HATED taking the medicine!

Mason Meets Santa

Mason met Santa for the first time on 11-30-08. We took him to the Bass Pro Shop to sit on Santa's lap. He didn't seem to mind at all. I don't think he had any idea what was going on. Abby got to meet Santa too. At the end of the day he was so tired!

Meeting Santa is hard work!

Abby's photo shoot

Here are some pictures I took of my niece Abigail on 11-30-08. She was only 3 weeeks old.


Thanksgiving with the Jones'

We went to Chris' parents lake house for Thanksgiving. We shared the weekend with over a dozen family members and 4 dogs. The oven also broke at some point during the that definitely made things more interesting. The food was wonderful as always and I especially loved the annual family game of Pictionary. It was a wild weekend but a fun one!

Mason out on the deck

We got to see our friend Lane. He was visiting his Nana who lives down the street from our Nana. Mason and Lane were born on the same day! Mason thought Lane's hand might taste better than his own, and Lane didn't seem to mind. It was adorable!

We celebrated Chad's 27th b-day while we were at the lake too!

Early Thanksgiving with Cousin Abby

Robby, Kasie, Abby and my mom came over to our house on 11-22-08 to celebrate Thanksgiving a little early. My mom made all our was delicious! We mostly just sat around and played with the babies.


5 months old

Here is Mason's 5 month picture!
He's getting so big! He's sitting-up with very litle help, eating rice cereal and squirming all over the place. He wears size 2 diapers and needs the 6 month clothes mostly for the length. He's very tall! He grabs anything within reach and often it goes in the mouth. He drools non-stop but no teeth yet! He is a very happy baby and loves to be held...he gets his way most of the time!

Excited about Christmas

We actually put our tree up on 11-16-08. Christmas is a big deal around the Jones household. Mason helped me put his ornament on the tree and really enjoyed grabbing the tree. Mason was super excited about Christmas too...can you tell?

Mason blowing bubbles and his new trick...sticking out his tongue!

Happy Hat

Mimi loves to buy Mason hats, so she put this one on him. We think he liked it!





Mason hanging out

Mason loves hanging out on the couch, and he knows to smile big for the camera.

Mason likes to put his feet in his mouth. It's hilarious and amazing!
