Masons 18 month update!

So I was debating on posting this because didn't know if it was common or to be honest I wasn't even planning on it just because I wrote milestone updates for mason's first year and thought those were the biggest milestones of his life. I also realized that he still has milestones, and if I did one, it would be a post for his half year mark and I was also missing posting these and It's more for me than anything, one of the main reason why I love blogging is that its my online journal! So without a further a do, here's Mason's 18 month update!!


Didn't I just post Mason's birthday post like yesterday haha? How is my little guy 18 months and such a big kid, at least he sure does look like it, don't you think? Do you guys remember when I would post about getting excited and planning his one year birthday.. I'm pretty sure I started planning that at 4 months haha. Since his 1st Birthday I haven't been paying attention to each month that he grows.. if that makes sense, I think I've only thought of his age when I go to the doctor or when he's had a doctors appointment haha. So when I was thinking about Christmas and got a reminder about mason's next doctors appointment, I immediately realized and remembered that my Mason man is turning 18 months! Am I the only who thinks that time is much faster when you have kids or that each month, year mark, or even year mark is a big deal?? I know I'm not the only one right?



Well this morning Mason had his 18 months appointment and he is a healthy growing boy! The doctor was impressed by all his new words hes learning and how he's starting to say full sentences! Today we didn't have to get any shots, so woo for now but we do need to get them next week, boo! He is 25 pounds and 8 oz and is looking great in the head and height department. Mason's eczema is coming back again so we've been applying cream again but mason has gotten it worse around his arm so we just a prescription to help that go away. Poor little guy has sensitive dry skin just like his mommy. Are there any moms out there who's kid has eczema, what have you used? But besides his eczema mason is looking great, healthy and a happy 18 month old. Crazy to think that his next appointment will be a 2 years old! Whaaaaat?!


Here are some milestones and things mason has learned to say or do from his year mark to now
- New Words

  • Shoes
  • Football
  • Touch Down
  • Night Night
  • Thank you
  • Welcome
  • Love you
  • All Gone
  • Oh Oh
  • Wee
  • Book
  • First full sentence was "Bye Daddy"
-Learning / Knows
  •  Learning Where the trash is and how to throw trash away
  •  Learning how to Blow Kisses
  • Learning where to get Diapers
  • Knows how to Pray
  • Knows what shoes are and where to find them
  • Knows how to clean mouth
Those are all those I can think of right now, there's a ton more but those are some I can think of right now:)

As you guys can see Mason is growing so much, from endless amount of words, to his first full sentence to knowing where everything is and knowing how to operate or do certain harder tasks. He is so intelligent! The other day we asked Mason if he could get a diaper , so he runs to his room and we hear him open a drawer, and we both looked at each other and thought "He knows where it is!" Well he comes empty handed lol so we ask him if he could get a diaper so we can change him, well he runs back to his room open a drawer and was actually in there for a little bit before opening a drawer, so then he comes running back and we thought oh he totally got it this time haha well you guys, he comes back with a hand full of socks, HAHA, I couldn't stop cracking up. He's such a smart kid, and even though he got the wrong object he still knew what room to get it and that they were in one of this drawers! 


I must say since mason turning one years old he has had so much energy! Some days he just running through the house, giggling and almost seems like he can go all day..until its his nap time and he is zonked!  If I thought Mason crawling or just learning how to walk was going to be a lot of work, haha I was kidding myself because mason is an adventurer (one of thousands of reasons why I love him) and like any toddler they want to see everything and get into everything and have a couple meltdowns haha. But when I get to thinking how toddler life is a struggle some days, I get to thinking that when mason has a meltdown , I need to see it how he see's it, how he is trying to communicate with me but can't, and that's got to be really difficult, so I've learned to see it how he see's it, which is a every day goal for me, to see things through his eyes. With his energy and curiosity, I've learned that he is seeing and discovering things for the first time and wanting to learn how everything works because his brain is growing.


We just had grandpa join us for thanksgiving, and these two are best friends! We fly to California soon and we cant wait to see more family and friends! Anyways Mason is a happy energetic 18 month old who continues to fill our lives with joy, happiness, and constant adventure! I love our little boy and love how big his little heart is! He truly is my ray of sunshine everyday and I know I say this sooooo many times but I truly am blessed to be his mother and have him in my life! Until next time... maybe I'll do another update at 2 years!
