Welcome October !

This past weekend Rex , Mason and I went to a few Halloween festive spots , and what a fun and memorable weekend it was! We decided to start out by visiting one of our favorite pumpkin patches, The Farnsworth Farms located in Sandy Utah. Rex and I went there last year and loved our experience not only does it have a pumpkin patch but also a little farmers market shop, apple you can pick and take home, and a little playground with for the little ones to run around on. We decided to go pick out a few pumpkins to decorate and put in the front of our house. We walked around and looked at what seemed to be every pumpkin! We finally found the perfect size and of course decided to take pictures with Mason on it. We then headed to the play structure where we decided to put mason in the baby swing and he honestly I believe liked it, he smiled and was staring at daddy while he pushed him softly. After some fun of the swing mason and daddy went on this plane like gym where mason held onto the steering wheel. I already see the adventurous boy growing! Last year at the same farm they had a movie night and even were selling apple cider donuts, which were DELICIOUS! Mason even picked a small pumpkin (well more like put his hand a pumpkin and that was his decision haha) Once we left the farm we decided to go get some yummy Halloween treats, caramel candies and candy corn, and head home to watch a movie. As time goes by and Mason grows I love being able to do more and look forward to things as a family! While we are welcoming October with buying pumpkins and starting to get out the warm blankets out I cant help but look forward to all the holidays coming up! Oh and I also must share my recent purchase! I recently bought THE ALISON'S SHOW cookie course, which teaches you how to make some yummy sugar cookies but also making royal icing and how to expand the artistic cookie that we all want to achieve! I have already started my course and am super excited to get started this weekend! I have linked her course in case your interested. Welcome Fall and see you soon Halloween (cant wait to show you our family costumes!)

Masons Four Month update!

Here we are and another month has past and my little Mas is already 4 months old!! I use to think that life after high school went by fast, then I got married and it felt like life went even faster, and now I have a 4 months old and I can't believe he's already 4 months old! I'm cherishing all these moments while he's a little one and so young, can I hold on to them forever? Mason has grown so much since the last update (which feels like it was just yesterday)! He loves sleeping lately!! I mean I ain't complaining but I truly believe Mason went through a growth spurt in month three, he's always been a good sleeper since he was born (knock on wood) but his naps are way much longer! Mason has also learned how to roll unto his tummy and now it seems like that's all he wants to do! He gets a little mad when he has one of his arms under his tummy still, so mommy or daddy go and help him! We also heard Mason actually laugh for this first time this month! His tickle spots are his tummy and kisses by his cheek.Mason also has this new thing that he is sticking out his tongue, I believe someone has now discovered his tongue and I keep awing on this little guys cuteness! Mason is smiling so much, I tend to take many photos on my phone of Mason (I mean I feel like I need to document everything) but he use to look at the phone and be serious or mommy would need to make him smile but my finger would fail to be on the button to the the photo haha. But NOW as you  can see below mason smiles now even if he's not directly looking at me and I love it! We will be also visiting family soon and were excited to meet aunts, family, and friends! Ps if you have any tips on traveling with an infant please let me know! Mason is now starting how to sit up on his own! I mean I help him out just a wee bit but for the most part mason is now independent for the most part (tear) to sit up. Oh gosh guys he's growing up so fast its just so hard to believe! We also went to visit the doctor recently for his 4 month appointment and mason is such a healthy boy, he has gained a few pounds and is now in the 90th percentile for height, and everyone is telling me how long he is already. So hey we may have a tall boy! Being a mom has shown me to love in a way I didn't think I could, even with all the poopie accidents, the cries, the middle night feedings being a mom is not only worth it but is the best job. We love you Mason!
