Teeth and Uncle John

Teeth. They are making their presence known in D's life, all at the same time. Four (maybe five) have officially broken through. 

And here are some other fun pics from the week when we met Uncle John in Georgia:

First Teeball Practice

Mason's Teeball practice! I was not disappointed, it was everything I hoped for and more. I think Mason had a pretty good time. Mason is "that young one" who provides so much entertainment. There is another kid younger than Mason, so he's not alone. They were both plopped down on the pitcher's mound, filling their gloves with dirt while the others hit balls all around them. I've got a guess who the outfielders will be this season. :)

Mason put his glove on his throwing hand, and used the glove to throw. I'm not sure he even realizes it's used for catching the ball.

He was so proud of how much dirt he fit in his glove.

I tried to get the dirt off his hands after practice. Didn't change the color at all. I am happy to report that after a couple scrubbings and a bath they have returned to their natural shade. His shoes will never be the same again. Not that I expected them to ... Thank you, red clay.

This is the closest he came to listening to what his coach was saying at any point of the practice.
Here's some video clips of the practice. It's too bad I stopped recording while he was hitting. I did capture when he ran to first, he stopped halfway and played in the dirt. The last segment is my favorite, when the coach has the whole team run the bases. Mason wanted to wear a helmet for the occasion. I am so so so excited about watching this season.

And some miscellaneous photos for fun:
I babysat my friend's two kids, who are the same ages as M & D. It was a handful, but fun.

Swim is still interesting, he would much rather go in this pool than the deeper one. Who wouldn't, right?

His cute little friend, Tate, from his swim class and church.

D slept like this for a long, long time. He loves his Granny!

Teeball with Grandpa

Grandpa taught Mason how to play teeball this week! He's picking it up pretty quickly. I'm excited for the entertainment. Mason is adorable.We need to make some bases.

And here are some other pics from the afternoon --

Uncle Mark and Cousin Lauren apparently gave Mason some oreos.

Workin hard in the yard.

And Donovan is already Mason's biggest fan. He didn't take his eyes off of Mason playing.

Easter Sunday 2012

Here are some pictures from Easter Sunday.

 I couldn't choose from these. Note the tooth on the bottom. A second one on the bottom is playing peek-a-boo. And he's cut one from the top above his first tooth, so he may only have two teeth for a while, both on the same side.

 And here's a non-Easter picture of us on the mower yesterday.

Memories with Daddy

Teeball starts this month, and Mason only wants to use the bat for drill team practice. I'm really excited to watch him play.

Happy Birthday, Grandpa!
Mason got this house for his birthday. It may be where he sleeps for the rest of our stay. He loves it.

Easter Egg hunt!

And here are our attempts to stay busy after we dropped Justin off at the airport -

Mason was upset that he couldn't go inside the rocket and fly into outer space.

We found him a rocket he could ride in.
