NYC and Mason on the MOVE!!

Every year my sister and I have a yearly sometimes twice a year trip to NYC. This year Laura and Kristen came. We had so much fun!! First off let me say we BLEW into the city. On Friday, the winds were blowing so strong the temp was -9 with wind chill factor. YES that's right....we were tough enough to withstand the coldest day in NYC so far. That did not stop us....we were determined to have a great time.

On the subway headed to Canal street!! We did some damage there like always. Laura, loved the hats in NYC, but I bet the maid loves mine better :)

After a very WINDY day we went to dinner at this Itilian place called Vita. Jenny and I have been there 3 times and love it. It is now a tradition that when we go to NYC we eat at Vita.

We were about to go see Wicked. We posed for a quick pic in the lobby showing off our purchases. We all bought Spy bags while in NYC....Kristen bought a red one and decided it did not go well with plum, so she was Spy bagless for this pic.

One more stop before Wicked. We met my uncle Jason and aunt Kelly for dinner. He was in town for business the week before and we just happend to be there the same time. It was fun catching up with them and having dinner. YES....those are millions of wine glasses in front of us. We purchased the wine dinner where you had unlimited wine and a full course meal. Every time we looked up they were pouring more wine into our glasses......I got confused as to which wine was which.

Here we are leaving Wicked. This was my 2nd time to see the musical and I loved it and would see it for a 3rd or 4th time.

We left early on Sunday morning and I was sad to go, but in a hurry to get home to see my lil guy. I missed him so much. I think I called Daddy every hour to see how my man was doing. When I got home I ran past Marcus and straight to pick up my lil boy and give him the biggest hug. One more "first" happened when I got home. THANK GOODNESS Mason waited for momma to get home. He ROLLED OVER all by himself. He had just woken up from a nap and I went in to get him and right then he was trying to roll over. I ran for the camera and got pics of his first time to roll over. Now when I put him down for a nap he rolls over in his sleep. It is too cute to come in and he has rolled to his back and is staring up at me looking at me with his big blue eyes. I just love this little man. Now Mason is on the much fun I am having with my little boy!!!!

Cruising through January.....

This pic is of Mason in his favorite monkey slippers that rattle :) He is such a cutie!!
From right to left: Cade, Paige, Mason, and Jackson and Jayden
This month has flown by!! Mason turned 4 months old, he started eating cereal, fruits and veggies, and I leave for NYC in just 4 short days. I am excited, but also sad to leave my lil guy. I know he will be in good hands, but it is always hard to leave my little angel. Something must be in the water in TEXAS!!! Everywhere I turn someone else turns up pregnant!! 14 people at my former school are pregnant and most are having BOYS!! Our principal is frantically trying to find long term subs for all the pregnant people :) When I was pregnant there were quite a few others pregnant also. A few of us who had our babies with in months of eachother got together the other day at my friend Alison's house. She was the first to have her BABIES....(identical twin boys), then me, then Kristin (with the only girl), and last her sister Nicole. Above is a picture of them all together!! It will be fun for all them to grow up together.

What is this you are feeding me??

It seems like an eternity I found out I was pregnant with Mason....actully it was exactly one year ago today!! I never thought the first trimester was going to end, but I look back and realize time flew like always and now my son is 4 months old. When I think of it 4 months is young, but my boy is growing like a weed. We just went to his 4 month check up and boy is he getting big!! He weighed 15lbs 10ozs: 75%, 25 1/4 in long: 60%! I knew I was getting bigger muscles carring him around all day :) This visit the doc said to start him on cereal, fruits and veggies. I first started cereal. The first few days he did not know what to think, but being the great eater he is he enjoyed it. Here are a few 4 month pics of my growing lil man. I just love him so.

5 Years

You are in high school for 4 years and then to college (for most 4 years) I always thought that was an eternity.....was I ever going to graduate? Today is 5 years.....5 years of being married to my M. It is amazing how time goes by so fast. We have experienced many things, traveled many places, and grown so much in these past 5 years. Now we have a little boy together which makes life with Marcus an amazing adventure we get to go through together. I love him more and more each day and I am lucky God brought him to me! Here's to many more memorable years with M.

*For our anniversary we always take a trip sometime in the summer. We are going to the Caymans in June and I can't wait. As if that was not enough Marcus surprised me with a weekend getaway to relax. GannyD is flying in to keep our precious son while we take off to the Marriott and relax for the weekend. He is such a great husband!!

First Christmas

We had a wonderful Christmas this year!! Santa and the Grandparents were very good to Mason....he has been a good boy ya know! I can' t wait until Mason can rip into the gifts....this year well....he watched us open, slept a little, and probably won't remember any of it, but we have it on tape :) We also took him to see Santa, but he was very tired and just looked at Santa like: WHO ARE YOU AND WHY IS MY MOM SITTING ME IN YOUR LAP, then he fell asleep again.

You know you are getting older when you are afraid of the fireworks of New Years waking up your child instead of you shooting off the fireworks. Needless to say we were all in bed by 10:00pm and the fireworks were going strong and they woke Marcus and I up at midnight, but Mason slept right through them!! He is a great sleeper :)

I hope everyone had a very Merry Chirstmas and Happy New New Years resolutions for me this year that way maybe some of my goals will be kept!!
