Mason LOVES, LOVES, LOVES, bath time. We've given up on the bath seat and let him splash around in a few inches of water. It gets a little tricky when brother joins him, because he needs it a little deeper and this is usually when Mason loses his balance a little bit. Mom and Dad keep one if not both hands in the water at all times. But last night he was solo and loving every minute of it. Braden was in the background getting the smiles. You can't see it but Braden was shaking his booty at Mason to get most of those smiles.
Mason is loving the bouncy car more everyday! He's starting to figure out how much fun it is to bounce up and down. Right now we have it by the window where Braden has placed some bird seed so he can watch the birds. If you look closely you can see all 6 of Mason's chompers.
Our little Rebel is also getting more mobile in his walker. Last night Blake bent down a few feet away and Mason made it all the way over to him. Below is Mason grabbing the drawer handle of a chest in our dining room. Braden this this exact same thing. I guess it makes a fun noise.
I don't know what feels good about holding the binky like this, but Braden did this, too! Blake had Mason standing a lot this weekend, and he's really getting good at it!
Saturday was Granny's birthday and luck would have it that she was able to meet Braden and I for lunch on Sunday. Mason wasn't in a great mood, Blake decided it was better not to subject the entire restaurant to his fussiness, so they stayed home. In this particular picture, I called Braden a "turkey" because he kept making funny faces, and he "called me out on it."
Nice Fashion Statement! Nothing would satisfy Braden but going outside to help Blake bring dinner in off the grill. It doesn't matter that it was below freezing, he grabbed his coat and the first shoes he could so he could help. He carried this plate inside and all the way to the dining room table, while Blake held his breath behind him, and amazingly didn't drop it!!!!
