We are pretty happy here at the Mason household. Our little man has finally mastered the art of sitting up by himself! I am not gonna lie, I was starting to get worried! This little dude loves to just chill and lay on his back and have you entertain him! It took him awhile to come around to tummy time too, he hated it and never wanted to roll over. Now he rolls over all the time and even sleeps on his tummy. I am starting to think maybe boys are just a little slower at these things:) After watching some other babies his age and younger sit by themselves, I decided we needed to practice more. Mission accomplished, we have a sitter! This makes my life so much easier as I can now just sit him on a blanket with toys and get stuff done around the house. Although why are all the toys he wants to play with ‘non-toys’? His toys of choice are pens, car keys, remote controls, wallets (can’t blame him for that one) and sunglasses.

On another note, Sterling and I have both been sick. Oh and he’s teething on top of that. Nobody told me how hard it would be to be sick and still have to care for a baby. Today was the longest day EVER. I looked at the clock at 10:30am and felt like it should have been 5. All I wanted to do was take a hot bath and crawl in bed. I may have put my little man down at 6:30 just so I could get some rest! ugh, hopefully we will both feel better tomorrow.
