Our Nightly Routine of Laughter & 30 Week Belly

Justin is Mason's favorite person in the world, no doubts about that. Every night just before Mason hits the sack, Justin gets Mason almost crying from laughing so hard. I am the lucky one who gets to stand by and watch (while avoiding flailing arms, heads, etc.). We finally caught the moment on video to keep for the future. [Note Mason's big boy bed. This video was taken his second night of sleeping with free access to the world. He is doing great, there are no real adjustments. He sleeps maybe an hour less, but considering he's going from 11 hours to 10 hours, it's no big deal.]
And here is the 30 week belly. Picture taken today. I look about the same size as when pregnant with Mason. And that size is big.

Potty Training Success #1!

I am going to celebrate the small steps with this process, maybe not always publicly, but since this is the first step, I thought I'd announce it.
Drum roll please....

Today Mason sat on the potty.

I know. So exciting. Until today, even the mention of a potty would send him running the opposite direction yelling "no! no! no!"
He set his terms clearly -- He would wear no clothing at all and I had to get out the bubbles to fill the air with soapy delight while he sat there.
Check and check.
I'm afraid there are no other "events" to report with this occurrence, but I let him flush the toilet afterward anyway.
One step closer to diaper freedom. . . at least until the next little one makes his poopy debut.

Late Easter Video

Mason helped us dye Easter Eggs this year! I didn't plan on that happening, but it happened. Mason's hands ended up yellow for about a day, and my fingers were the colors of the rainbow for two. I would do it again.
