Month: July 2009
Papa and Sam enjoying the Wii at the soda shop. Sam was thrilled.
Ice-cream + soda + cotton candy = yummmmmm….
Have a great evening.
Scott’s parents are here visiting right now. They arrived yesterday and will be here for a couple weeks. We are enjoying their visit. The kids love it when Grandma and Papa visit because they get to play every board game on the shelf. Right now they are on game #4, Sequence. Grandma is such a saint that she continued on after Candy Land….that would have been it for me.
Tomorrow, we travel to Greeley for Mason’s appointment. He has been wearing his brace and shoes for about 5 weeks. I am looking forward to what the doctor has to say regarding his progress. We are continually amazed…..
Sam has his last swim meet in the morning. We have had such a blast this summer at the pool. Sam has come so far with his strokes and technique.
I am starting to get the end of summer blues. School starts on August 18th. Pretty soon we will have to purchase school supplies. Boo! Sam will be starting 2nd grade and Alice will be in 1st. Paige will be going to pre-k three days a week.
Sorry this post is all over the place. Kinda like my life 🙂
Guess what we are doing?
I love it when I catch my kids doing this….
Crazy Summer Busy
Mason taking advantage of the Popsicles and graham crackers in recovery. I believe he had four Popsicles in all.
Parade and Such
On another note….
Mason had his (hopefully last) surgery today. Everything went fine and he is home sleeping. Here are some cute shots while waiting in recovery. The hospital staff gave him this cute hat and a toy car.
Okay, no pictures, yet. Blogger is not letting me move pictures around like I had hoped. Maybe tomorrow.
Now I am off to herd the cats and get some dinner started. Jelly sandwiches anyone?
4 Months Home.
Mason is doing great in his transition. We are continually seeing his personality come out!
He understands most of the things that we say but he is hasn’t been too interested in talking. Tonight, Scott was trying to get him to say book. Mason say book. Mason signs book. Mason say book. Mason signs book. Finally, when Mason was really ready for me to read the book he looked at Scott and pointed out the door. He does say dadda, momma, car, more, choo-choo, tickle, Jessie and hi. He is signing all the time and has too many to count.
He loves all things that go. Planes, trains, cars, buses, tractors, etc. He also loves to point out wheels wherever we go. We love it when he goes on and on about a truck on the road or the UPS van. Sam calls it Chinese baby jabber. We have no idea what he is saying but it sure is cute:)
His favorite time of the day is when his brace/shoes come off. He raises his hands and says Yah! It is so cool to see him scoot around without the restraint of the shoes and brace. He is tolerating putting pressure on the bottom of his feet and stands for longer periods of time now. The doctor in Greeley is really happy with his progress and so are we. It really is such a miracle to see how his feet have progressed. Yah!
He has celebrated Easter, Independence Day and a birthday with his forever family. Every first is such a treasure for us.
We love you Mason!
