Mason is truly our (super) hero)!
What a great accomplishment for a little guy who's been
through so much! Happy 23 Months Miracle Mason!!!
Since the kids dressed up for school today, Halloween falling
on Saturday (tomorrow), Mason needed to be dressed special too.
I thought a cape with his Superman t-shirt would be very
appropriate on his 23 month b-day. For after all, he certainly
is quite the Superman....as he keeps on fighting to be strong,
even with half a heart!! And you can really tell he's almost 2,
because he will not sit still for a picture.
Mason LOVES the outdoors! Too bad it is already getting
so cold here in Utah. I love this picture of my little Miracle Superhero.
He is just as happy as could be to sit and watch what's going on
outside. The funny thing is, all the kids were at school
but there were guys out mowing the neighbor's yard, which
was just enough to keep him content and hold his attention.
Oh how Mason loves bath or shower time!
Here are two sweet boys, Mason and Ammon.
He scooted down the stairs and now he's trying to
figure out how to come back up.
Always so happy!
This is at one of Preston's football games. We love when
things are outside so Mason can join in on the fun. We still
stay away from indoor crowds, Mason can't handle the germs. (And I
really only have 5 kids, Kaitlin's friend Chesney had joined us that day.)
And after a long hard day Mason will at least sleep a few hours!
I love pictures of my sleeping babies.
Mason seems to be doing so well. Beside the occasional pukes (at least once a day) from his heart failure, he acts like he feels pretty good and his energy level is better than even just a couple of months ago. His newest tricks are : getting up on one knee and then trying to pull himself up to a stand at furniture (still can't do it completely by himself, but at least he tries),
and he loves dancing to Kaitlin's music. He will scoot on his bum, spinning himself in a circle and wave his arms up and down to the music...... and the whole time watching with a smile to make sure we are all looking at him. He's quite the "show off"!
When our busy day comes to an end and I've tucked all the other kiddos into bed, I rock my little Mason into the late hours of the night. I've always cherished this time with Mason, but even more so now. My emotions are usually high and my tears begin to flow, as I think of the uncertainty we face in our journey here on earth with Mason. I plead with our Father in Heaven to make him healthy enough to stay here with us. But at the same time, inquire with faith in Him to know what is best for sweet Mason and our family. Honestly, my strongest desire and hope is to have him healthy, strong, and O2 free..... to run and play outside with the other kids! I pray for comfort each day to get through these emotional times, and I hold all my kids a little more and a little closer, for we never know what tomorrow brings.
"Dear Sweet Mason,
Thank you for bringing so much happiness into our home! You have been such a blessing to our family! We pray that Heavenly Father will allow us to celebrate many more months and years with you.
