Dinner Peek-a-Boo

Posted on

Just after dinner I caught this video and thought this would be a good place to share it…

As you can see, Mason and Caleb are doing a great job of playing together. Yes, they have their moments, but they light up whenever they see each other. It’s really sweet and here you get to see some of their spontaneous play. 

Photos of the Day (Mason 2.5 years)

Posted on

Believe it or not, Mason is turning two and a half in a couple days. As is tradition,  photos were taken from the moment he awoke until he went to bed on the hour. The photos catalog his daily actives, his mood, and little events. It’s unbelievable how much he has changed over the past 6 months. One thing the photos won’t display is how verbal he has gotten in the last few months. What at one time was a couple of words that created a sentence now is detailed stories, opinions, and monologs. Crazy how quick it happens…

This photo of the day is a unique one as Elaine and Caleb are up North in the Bay area visiting Juliana and Jaclyn. I believe that Elaine took a lot of photos today with Caleb so we will get his photos up on the blog here shortly. Enjoy Mason’s day….

I took a video of our dinner conversation this evening too. The video is about 4mins long and starts with a little “NO!” but then we dive into a conversation. It gets a little long but it is classic Mason… enjoy!

A Lot Can Change In A Year

Posted on

If a photograph says a thousand words, what does a video say?

I’ve been looking through some old photos and videos and thought it would be fun to show two videos from exactly one year a part. Its turned out to be a fun little project with some pretty significant developmental skills being displayed. What you’ll see is that a lot can change in a year, especially that first year.

So here it is… the first video was shot on November 18th, 2011 and it captures the developing skill of tummy time and as you’ll see it is somewhat successful and then Mason slowly falls to the left. Even though he has changed so much, I remember taking this one like it was only yesterday.

Our latest video was filmed on November 18th, 2012 and features Mason’s love of food, his immediate frustration of not getting the carrot on his fork, and the pure joy of eating (almost) without assistance. As all successes should be marked, this video ends with a couple of high fives and smiles.

My favorite moments in that video are at 17 seconds and 30 Mason is a very expressive kid (see above video at 17, 30, and 53 seconds) and this next one shows more of those qualities. You’ll see that he’s recently figured out how to manipulate his eyebrows to give them most dramatic expressions. It starts out with his “Oooooo” face from our choo-choo train conversation and then he decides to try to climb into his little chair without help. He figures it out and you’ll get to see his excitement of being a ‘rockin baby’. He’s a cool kid.
