Three!  Happy Birthday Mason, a couple days late. Mason spent his third birthday with Grandpa and Grammie and it sounds like it was a very special day.  He ordered oatmeal for breakfast and french toast for dinner.  We chatted with him on the phone since we were in Hawaii.  Then we flew in the next day an hour and a half before his birthday party (a little tired!). We celebrated with him a day late, which he didn't seem to mind at all.   A big thank you to the grandparents for planning an awesome fish-themed party for our sweet boy! 

 Bubbles, swimming, fish cupcakes, friends, family and lots of sunshine =one happy birthday boy!


I really can't believe how much you have grown up in these 3 years.  You are such a sweet, smart, observant, silly boy.  You take everything in.  You can see or hear something one time and will repeat it in context at a later time.  Your vocabulary amazes me. You talk all the time unless you are around a large crowd of people. Then you sit back and watch before you jump in. 

You love to be outside.  You are potty trained except for you still wear a diaper when sleeping.  You love to help daddy and mommy with whatever we're doing around the house.  You fix things all the time with your tools.  You love to sing and read books.  You are always on the go, working on something. It's fun to watch you playing and interacting with Emma. 

I asked you about a few of your favorites, just for fun:

favorite breakfast: oatmeal (more specifically 3-fruit oatmeal (it's what you call it) complete with apples, bananas, and craisins)
favorite lunch: cheesy roll-up (quesadilla)
favorite dinner: you wouldn't answer this one
favorite book: Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? (we just finished reading it...I would guess it's your collection of winnie the pooh books because we read them at least once a day)
favorite thing about emma: trying to understand her
favorite thing to do with mommy: read
favorite thing to do with daddy: paint

You are so much fun, Mason.  We love you bunches! Happy birthday!
