When Mason was born, Jason and I both remarked at how Mason didn't have eyelashes. Grant and Norah have beautiful eyelashes, they get compliments on them frequently. I thought oh bummer for Mason not to get to share in those beautiful lashes. Well, Mason has been busy growing some long eyelashes catching up to his siblings.
Mason's middle name is Randall, after my dad. We didn't realize how quickly he was going to take after him, but he has decided that bald look is in. All the beautiful brown hair he was born with has been falling out this last month. He does have one spot on the top of the back of his head the remains leaving him with a cute rooster tail.
Mason is growing so fast. The bouncer has already been put away. I have continued to put away those infant sizes and brought out 3 to 6 month clothes. Just look at how much more space he takes up in the swing. The first picture is from mid-July, and the second picture was taken just last week.
Mason is smiling. He loves to smile for his big brother and sister. Big happy smiles that make you fall in love with him. Mason has just begun to coo over the last couple weeks, and gave us his first giggles just a couple nights ago. We are happy to indulge him with lots of attention to get as many smiles and giggles as we can get.
Other things Mason is up to:
- Tummy time is tolerated, sometimes by Mason just falling asleep on his tummy.
- He is getting closer to rolling over. Jason and I have both been telling each other how far he gets to going over.
- Mason has found his hands. He has banged toys that are hanging down near him, but no reaching for things yet. He biggest find is that fingers are great to suck on, he prefers his index and pointer, but really any he can get into he mouth are great. I have even woke up in the middle of the night to the sound of him chomping on his hand, then thought to myself maybe I should feed him before he really does eat those fingers.
- I moved Mason from his cradle to a pack-n-play in our room. He seemed to fill up the cradle, and would get restless, but I wasn't ready to set up a crib for him away from us yet. In our bedroom he will stay for now.
