Come Swimming With Mason!

We have a little ducky. He wants to be in the water, swimming by himself with no momma support. The word "swimming" is coming out of his mouth over and over almost the entire time he is in the water. He kind of reminds me of a little ducky, with total calm above the water, and his legs and feet going crazy underneath. I want to get him into swim lessons as soon as possible so he doesn't develop bad habits with the vest, but our base ones are delayed due to lack of teachers. Until then, he will be my little ducky.
I love swimming with Mason.
I'm kind of sad that these were filmed in the compact format on accident because you can't see the huge grin on his face, but we've got what we've got and that's what I'm giving you. We'll probably make another attempt for better video later on. Hope yall enjoy.

Almost 36 week belly

What woman with a 37"x42"x38" figure wouldn't want to show it off on the internet? If you've got it, flaunt it!

Celebrating Daddy

Here's a pic of Father's Day. Justin's big celebration present was a new iPad2 to have for all his traveling. Mason picked out the card, and it was a Cars movie card, of course. He had a difficult time choosing between that one and a card with bulldozers on the front.
Mason could not have a better man for a daddy. I think he wants to be just like his Daddy, what do you think?

Latest Tricks

Isn't he delicious? This is at our base splash park. Mason really wasn't much of a fan, he didn't like the combination of screaming kids and water spraying in his face. Our visit only lasted about 15 minutes and I ended up soaked (I didn't mind, it was 104 degrees out that day). We'll try again in a week or two. Meanwhile, we're spending our summer days either floating in a pool (Big-bellied Momma's preference) or playing in the sand at the playground.
So here's a video update on cuteness. We tried to get him to sing at the end, but it didn't happen in front of the camera. He's singing to himself all the time when he plays and I LOVE IT! I'll catch him on film one of these days.

We're trying to figure out what he's doing with the thumbs up/wink the eye bit that he does. I can only think of the movie Tangled where the main character is looking at a place to paint. He does it at the perfect time- right when Momma is about to get upset for doing something he's not supposed to; he evades punishment because I can't stop laughing.

A Memorial-able Georgia Weekend

Justin was super busy over Memorial Day Weekend with hanging out with President Obama and such, so Mason and I took a little drive down to Georgia! Stacy and Spencer were in town, so we had to go down and see them! Of course, I only took about ten pictures the whole trip, most of which are blurry, so I'll post the measly few that actually turned out, as well as several videos of the trip. It may be boring to some, but it's a good journal entry of the fun times of the weekend for me.

Mason had so much fun with his Aunts and Uncles! Stacy had several games he never seemed to tire of!
Video of Stacy Games (note the pregnant belly on Stacy- so excited that Mason will have TWO cousins and a baby brother by the end of the year!):

Pool Time! Mason actually requests this hat when we are swimming. He likes to pull it really low so that the sun never gets in his eyes. I can't say that I mind- could he be more adorable? I think not. I can't wait to float the summer away with this little man.

Mason was a bit nervous about the waterslide, but loved it! Thanks, Jessie, for taking him down since his preggo mommy couldn't do it!
video of the slide:

Can't get enough of Grandma. On the way home he asked to go to Grandma and Grandpa's house. We were somewhere in the middle of North Carolina heading north. It didn't take long to start missing his GA family. It was so great to see everyone! We love yall!
