HAPPY 31 MONTHS TO OUR HERO MIRACLE MASON!!!
At 31 months:
Mason weighs 25.5 lbs (that's all cheeks I think!),
loves playing w/ cars, balls, and looking at books,
favorite place to go is to the park to go on the swings,
least favorite place to go is the hospital (wonder why?!),
cruises furniture, but not quite walking yet (we're working on it),
must have his favorite blanky everywhere we go now,
talking and mimicking new words more and more each day,
and he is most happy when he's with his family!!
Here are pictures of the week (including Father's Day weekend)
that we all spent together and Mason was ALL SMILES:
Thanks to donated tickets and tips on great discounts we did
many fun things! I armed myself w/ Clorox wipes, hand sanitizer,
Mason's masks (especially for anyplace indoors), Mason's meds,
my camera, and off we went to make memories together!! When
I would let Mason go on a ride, slide, swing etc...I'd wipe it off
to sanitize it first, getting many weird looks from people- which
makes me think I should design him a shirt that says in real big
letters, "I HAVE A NEW HEART SO I MUST BE CAREFUL
W/ GERMS! (don't you think that would be a good idea?!)
HAPPY HALLOW in San Jose

"I want out!"
Very happy to finally have a turn on something!

A Visit to STANFORD CAMPUS found us at a
beautiful water fountain to throw in wishing pennies.
Ammon only had one thing in his mind.........getting in the water.
Here's Sammi trying to keep him out.
But, the second we turned our backs, he went for it!!!
Kailin threw off her sweater and went in to get him!
Ammon was very happy that he succeeded in getting all wet!
Mason thought it was very funny too and his laugh is so absolutely
adorable it made it difficult for me to get mad at Ammon!
SANTA CRUZ BOARD WALK
the speed bumps we've ran into on this journey!!!
We were very grateful to all be together.
while Mark and I took the 4 boys to the Exploritorium.
What a Good Boy!
But, we had a great time!!!!
Thanks for celebrating 31 miraculous months with us,
as well as all your prayers that have helped us get
this far in our "Broken Hearted" journey!
