Family Pictures

We have been very lucky to have several friends who are photographers take family photos for us since Mason was born. I wanted to share a few of the pictures my friend Becky took recently of Mason and family shots for our Christmas cards. She was able to catch some wonderful shots, despite chasing after my active little boy who did not want to sit still and was way more interested in investigating than smiling for the camera!

Thanks Becky!

Happy 1st Birthday Mason

My baby is officially 1! I do not know where the time went, but he went from an 8 lb baby in my arms to a 26 lb kiddo that is always on the go!

We celebrated Mason and Natalie's birthday with a Circus themed party at our house on Saturday, complete with hot dogs, popcorn, large pretzels, and a bounce house. Natalie and Mason were born only a few minutes apart on November 2nd, so we had to celebrate together. All the kids had a blast, including Mason! We enjoyed it so much we got back in the bounce house this morning in our pj's so he could enjoy it a little more before it got picked up.

Here are a few of the pictures from the day...

Where does the time go?



It has been a busy few weeks. We went to Florida early September to celebrate Justin's sister's wedding and celebrate our 2nd anniversary at the place we got married. We loved spending some great time with Mason at the beach and the pool!





Mason got to spend the weekend with Mema and Papa and loved more time at the pool and learning to ride Shag- the horse my brother and I had as kids



My nephew, Joshua Miles, made his arrival on September 27- Welcome Joshua!




Audra and Koen came to visit and the boys loved playing together at the Children's museum and the house.




Mason and Natalie played together on their 11 month birthdays. Happy Birthday!!




Mason is growing so fast. He is walking all over the place, cut his first top tooth (that's three teeth total!) and waves and says "HI", blows kisses, does "touchdown", and many other things. As I was holding my new nephew the other day, I just couldn't believe how far we have come in such a short 11 months. I can't even remember him being that small!

We leave for Chicago on Wednesday to visit Nick, Nichole, and Ava (6.5 months). We can't wait to spend some time with them and enjoy some cool fall temperatures. Will post pictures when we get back!

Growing Fast and Curious!

Mason turned 8 months on Friday and he is on the go!

He is very quick at crawling, pulls up on everything, and is starting to walk his way around things while holding on. He also loves trying to climb! He is definitely our monkey!

We had a great Fourth of July weekend. It was great having relaxing time off to spend with my boys as well as with friends.

We took Mason to the Children's Museum today and he loved it...we had one tired boy when we got home. He loved being able to crawl and climb all over the tot room and explore whatever he wanted.
