So do you know the saying "If you can't beat'em...join'em?" Well this is like that except it's "If you can't keep him still......take his picture anyway!" Mason is definitely the busiest person I know and he gets into EVERYTHING. He...unrolls toilet paper, opens drawers, pulls everything out of the drawers, puts crazy & random things in the drawers, sits IN the refrigerator, climbs on/under/through furniture, jumps on the couch, climbs up the playhouse, slides down the slide by himself, hits the dog with a plastic baseball bat, plays in the dog's food/water, climbs in his car "Dukes of Hazard" style (through the window), throws perfectly good food/cups/other objects in the trash, tries to climb in the bath tub (water or no water), picks up bugs/rocks/cigarette-butts off the ground then tries to eat'em, throws food from his high chair and then decides that maybe it tastes better off the floor (YUCK!), kicks/throws/hits every kind of ball you can think of, and he thinks EVERYTHING is a sword and then will attack you with such sword... And all of this stuff was just in the last few days! He definitely keeps us on our toes and there is no doubt this kid is all BOY!
Playing swords with cousin Lauren at the lake. Pieces of wood make great swords!

Jenn and I at Pompano Joe's the first night. This restaurant was right on the beach and across from where we were staying...first on the agenda...drinks!
The second night we went to Osaka, a local Japanese Steakhouse and sat at the Hibachi grill. Our cook was hilarious... "You want gravy Cowboy"
Chris and I on the beach. JR was our photographer.
Jennifer & JR at the Village of Baytowne Wharf inside the Sandestin Resort
The last day we were there the water was incredibly clear. Chris and JR spent a lot of time snorkeling. They say some large fish and a stingray!

He did finally get used to all the wonderful people who came to see him, and showed everyone how he could walk & play. Since Mason loves to hit things with the bat, we even had a little pinata. The older kids loved it. Mason got so many cool toys...here's the run down...
A four-wheeler, a little tikes car, basketball and crayons for the bath tub, clothes, money, gift cards, puzzles, books, hippo piano, alphabet pal learning catepillar, mega-blocks wagon, a new big-boy car seat, a dinosaur that moves, a beach towel, a inflatable car for the pool, sunglasses, giraffe guitar, crawl tunnel, and balls, balls and more balls!

Yep I've got one more year until the dreaded big three-zero! So I've decided I need to really enjoy the last year of my twenties. I was off work on Friday and had a "me" day for once! I slept in a little and then went and got my hair cut. Then met some friends from work for drinks in Denton. I stayed a little longer than I intended, but did manage to finally make it to my pedicure. It was amazing! The pedicure lasted like an hour and a half (I went for the super-duper "sea-scape" version) but was totally worth it. Then I had to rush home to change for dinner. We went to Buca di Beppo in Southlake with Jennifer, JR, Chad and Falon. It's a querky Italian place that serves dinner family-style. We had a great time!

This past month Mason has become quite entertaining. He loves to clap, especially for himself and anything he accomplishes. He really loves it when a bunch of people watch him do something and then all clap for him...he claps too. He can turn off the lights, open and close anything with hinges (he loves to shut the microwave door). He really likes pushing buttons and playing with the little spring door stops (what an annoying sound!)

My little man is 10 months old. He is about 19 pounds (per the bathroom scale). He is still super tall. He is wearing 12 month clothes mostly because of the length. Size 3 diapers. He is pulling-up on everything and cruising around the furniture. He hasn't let go yet but it's only a matter of time. He crawls super fast and chases the dog most of the time. He is also a climber which could be sign of many injuries to come. He already likes to dive off the couch onto pillows...scary I know. The kid has NO fear. His favorite toys are balls of any size. He really loves basketballs and knows how to put them in his mini basketball goal. Yes...he is learning basketball at an early age. He has learned how to clap and wave bye-bye. He is curious about everything and is always exploring. He still only has two teeth. He is getting better about eating real foods and like most things he tries. He is a big fan of the macaroni & cheese baby food. Loves water and hates juice. He can feed himself too, which is great, but tries to put way too much food in his mouth. His new words are "bah" for ball, and "Mimi." He also likes to roar like a lion, he says "rah" really loud. He thinks it's funny. It is so fun to watch him learn new things, and he loves it when we clap when he has accomplished something. He has such a big personality for such a little person...and I love him so much!
