Five years ago..

I cannot believe that this child of mine joined our family 5 years ago. I think Mason was the sweetest little baby that every came to this Earth. He never cried and he was always happy. That changed drastically right around the 14 month mark, but he still adds a lot to our family.Mason has the quickest wit. He loves to make people laugh, but it's always in a surprising way. I never expect the things that come out of his mouth. He is also painfully shy, so I don't think a lot of people get to experience the fun, hilarious Mason.

He has quite the temper. You don't want to be the one to make this kid mad. He holds a grudge and he's fairly inventive with revenge, for someone so young.

He is a little pack rat. I always find weird things hiding in his clothes drawer. Here is what was there just now...
He is very sensitive and all about fairness (which is funny for someone who holds a grudge like this kid does). He loves to tattle because he sees the injustice of it, but he likes to look like the good guy just a little bit more.
He is constantly on the verge of tears. He cannot hide his emotions at all.
He likes to sound smart. Just the other day at dinner, Adam and I were talking to McKay about school and during a pause, Mason chimes in with "Well, he makes a good point." What 5 year old says that??!!
I adore this child and I am so glad to be his mom. I love you Mason! Happy 5th Birthday!!


  1. Look at how being tall makes you look hardly pregnant at all. Not fair :) Glad to get to know my almost cousin a bit more... Its so weird that we are getting old enough to have kids this old!

  2. What a great kid! And I agree with Emily, you don't look full-term pregnant at all. Heck, that's how I look right after giving birth! :-/

  3. I love the pic of mini tiny mace and itty bitty Mac. Your belly is so good too! :)

  4. Oh my goodness! I can't believe he's already 5! I miss them all so much.
