SO...Mason was coloring at the counter today while I was making his lunch and he didn't seem too happy with the way I was cooking his grilled cheese, because this was the face I got when I put it on his plate (yes, it is lunch time despite how dark it looks outside...mid-afternoon storm).
It is so funny to see how traits get passed down to your kids. My mom does this, I do it, and now Mason. Maybe Miss Addison will be spared...

Earlier in the day, when he was at his babysitters, he learned how to climb out of his porta crib. I sure hope this is not a sign of him climbing out of his regular crib because I am NOT ready for him to decide when he gets up and around in the morning!
(I do promise to get some new pictures on here soon because I know I like to look at everyone else's!)

Now, on to my first full work week (insert swollen ankles and exhaustion here). Everything has gone pretty smoothly. Mason has transitioned smoothly back to the life of waking up early, even though Mommy has not. He has also done beautifully being away from me all day. My students are pretty sweet, and I've got just a few stinkers in the mix, but they'll be just fine once they've had a chance to test the waters. The best part of my day though is getting Mason after school. Most days I get a gigantic hug and kiss, but other days he's too busy playing to actually shell out some love...BOYS! I don't really have any new pics since we've been so busy (we've had company all week), but I promise to take some this weekend and post them...I do however have one my mom just sent me. This is Mason playing in her backyard. Well, I guess I should say, "Taking a breather in her backyard."

Now that you've seen the beauty of this blog, it's time for the BEAST...
I'm just now at 29 weeks and went to my appointment yesterday. Addison is finally in launch position and will make her debut whenever she darn well pleases. We finally got a great ultrasound of her face and it is amazing to see how much her features look like Mason's (now we'll have to wait on the coloring). Dr. Nilson says she's growing fine and still measuring large. I'm hoping this means she's coming early and not that I'm going to have to push out a large baby!
Mommy on the other hand is feeling like a fat, tired, sweaty cow. The heat is unbearable. I've been getting up early just so I can walk before 8:00...otherwise I'm miserable. Mason doesn't seem to mind the heat at all. I think the kid would live outside if we pitched a tent for him. So we've been having a battle of the wills. Let me tell you, the pregnant lady wins. When it's time to come in, WE'RE COMING IN!
Mason is still going potty. Not on a regular basis, but he'll usually pee on the potty at least once a day. He gets so excited for himself. It's pretty funny. His new interest is Daddy reading to him. Pretty ironic that his mommy is a teacher and he doesn't want to hear stories from me...little stinker! Below is Mason and Daddy reading...
