What a fun day we had today! Today was Mason's first swim lessons. I started early because we will be traveling to the beach, and swimming TONS this summer. Mason has been in a pool last summer, but was not sure how this whole swim lessons would go. He did not know what to think at first, but loved the slide! I was not able to get many pictures because I was the only one there with him, so I will get some more soon. He went under, learned how to kick, learned bubbles, learned how to float on his back, and how to get to the side of the pool. Well all with my help or the teacher's help. It was fun and I know he will enjoy it more and more each time we go. When we were leaving and all morning he kept saying POOL POOL....obviously it left an impression on him ;)

Just a cute pic I thought I would throw in :) Looking for the ducks in our new backyard!

Just look at those dimples!

Eating a good breakfast before we go swimming...(don't worry we did not get into the water to swim until 1 hr. later ;)
Observing....look at that funky hair! Sorry the pic is dark :(
Mason's new kicks....he was not quite sure of them, but they grew on him...check out those bruises on his legs...poor guy!

Excited to jump in....actually he LOVED the slide and tried to slide every chance he could get! You mean I have to get in THERE!!! sorry for the blurr :(
**One thing I did notice was the older the kids the more afraid of the water they were if it was their first time swimming or in a pool. Mason is in a "starfish" class from babies to 2 yrs old. Most were kids his age and a one under 1. There are only 5 kids in his class which is GREAT! I am glad we started him early :)

BREAKTHROUGH!!!!! Last night we were sitting at the dinner table finishing dinner. Mason said POO POO. OK....we thought....let's check his diaper (he usually poo poos before nap and before bed time) NO, nothing. Then right after we checked his pants he went POO POO. Our lil guy just told us he needed to POO POO!!! Time to buy a potty :)
I am finishing this post a few days later. Now "sometimes" when he needs to poo poo or TT he points to the BIG potty and says "poo poo or TT". So....I am needing some help in which potty is best for boys....What potty should I buy?

I've Been Called Worse :)

Mason has said dada for a while. Then it went to DADEEEE now just Daddy :) During these changes he has always called me mama! Then there was a period he wasn't saying mama anymore....I was SAD! I wondered WHY? Well...ever since Mason was born I have had many nick names for him, bubba being one. I was leaving one day and Marcus was there with him and he ran to the door saying BUBBA BUBBA and crying. It clicked!! Mason had given me a nick name too, the same one I gave him....BUBBA! Now that explained all the times I would hear BUBBA when he was looking at me and trying to get my attention :) I had a video of this, but can't get it to upload :(
