ENT and more

Today Mason had his ENT appointment to assess his tongue tie. Mason's pediatrician wanted to wait until he was 18 months and speaking before anything was done, but after talking, John and I decided we didn't want to wait until there was a problem that needed to be fixed and put an 18 month old through the stress of getting it fixed so we decided to see the specialist now and get his opinion on the matter. He was very nice and said that Mason had a moderate tongue tie but agreed it should be taken care of now instead of later when the recovery time jumps from a couple of days to a week for older children. Unfortunaly this procedure has to be done as an out patient surgery so on February 17th, Mason have this taken care of. I am already stressed and a wreck but I know we will get through it.

Mason is growing and changing every day. He is eating baby food for dinner and already has preferences. Like a true brother, Mason has joined forces with Austin and hates peas. He does love carrots though. Mason is also not a fan of pears at all. Mason is also almost sitting on his own. He would already have it if he wasn't so grabby and always trying to get stuff out of his reach. He is rolling over non stop and has recently discovered his feet. Mason loves his big brother and lights up and screams whenever Austin decides to give him some attention.

Mason has proven to be VERY attached to his mommy. He has demonstrated this on several occasions of screaming when left with other people while I go out. Hopefully this is a phase that does not last because i am starting to feel a little trapped and do not enjoy when i do get a chance to get out because I am worried about him the whole time. I don't know if I posted this last time but we have conquered the bottle issue and he now takes it whenever we give it to him although he still prefers to nurse.

Austin has become quite the little parrot, repeating whatever he hears. He has now given up his pacifiers and we have not had much of an issue with that. He asked and we tell him they went bye bye and he is a big boy now and usually thats the end of it.

Austin is working on jumping now and is getting pretty good. Its very cute to watch him jump and only lift up one leg. He is always so proud and claps after he performs.

Austin has been practicing going on the potty much more these days. He has even went a few times. Hopefully in the next few months as Mason gets better at entertaining himself, I can focus on this with Austin. For now we are letting him just get used to the idea.

Austin has been doing really well in Tot School. His 1 year old patience is something that we have to work on but he loves it and it always very proud of what he makes or does. Everyday Austin is constantly entertaining us. There is never a day that goes by that he doesn't do something to make us laugh.

Here are some random pictures of the boys
Austin learned to climb in Masons walker himself. 

Austin has no fear which has resulted in a lot of boo boos in our house. The funny thing is Austin hates having band aids on and usually cries harder about that then the actual injury. 
Austin loves playing in his closet. 

Just being silly!

This is what happens when Mommy had to give baths while dealing with Mason (which I do not do, thats John's job)

Austin was so tired he fell asleep on his little brother.

I almost forgot how messy it can be when they first start eating!

Laughing at mommy.

One of his favorite things is to look in his toy bucket and take all the toys out.
