Long Overdue Update

Well, another year has gone by, and I’ve yet to post in 2015. Working two jobs and having two kids does crimp availability for other things. Sorry, internet!

Oh, right! Yes…you read that right…TWO kids.

Back on May 20, we welcomed Baylor to our family! Everything went great and everyone is healthy!

Baylor arrived back in May. Talk about delayed news!

And Mr. Mason turned five in October. Where does the time go?

Mason is five now. He’s all about color!

I’m hoping to try to incorporate a somewhat regular schedule of posts moving forward. I miss writing about my boy(s)!

Mason’s Sledding Adventure

For the first time since Mason was an infant, we had a Thanksgiving snowfall sufficient for some sledding! Mason has always been one for movement and speed. His Grampa (my Dad) took him up and down the hill a bunch of times…guess who got tired first? Haha!

This video was shot and edited entirely on an iPhone 6 with iMovie, using time-lapse photography, slo-mo video, and the ever-cliché Ken Burns effect. It’s short, but sweet. 🙂

Life With A 4-Year-Old

It’s been hard to post anything with all the time dedicated to work, but Mason does still exist. In fact, he recently turned FOUR! Proof in the picture, no joke.

I hope to get some more stuff up here, as fatherhood never stops!

Mason covered himself so thoroughly with his blanket, it looks like it’s part of him. Snoozy little guy. 🙂

…literally! Not bragging or anything…

The World Didn’t End,& Neither Did This!

No worries folks, I’m still here! Just wanted to pass happy winter and holiday wishes to moms and dads alike! 🙂 Working two jobs and parenting tends to have this “no blog” effect. Whoopie! It’s all worth it though, for this little guy:

Throwback shot. A mere month old!

Happy Holidays!

 

One Little Monkey Jumping on the Bed

Oh Boy…

Every home needs a bounce house to prevent bed bouncing!

In the past few weeks, Mason has learned that mattresses are springy, and that springs are bouncy. He’s such a sensory-focused little guy! Every morning before leaving for daycare, all he wants to do is get on Mommy & Daddy’s bed and hop, hop hop! Of course, it’s a double-edged sword, bouncing on the bed. No parent wants to condone such raucously negative behavior, but the smile on Mason’s face makes it impossible to deny him. I’m such a bad daddy.

Mason still uses a crib, but he’s starting to bounce there too. I’m sure it won’t be long before he’s bouncing right OUT of the crib. Can someone recommend some good floor padding to prevent skull fracture?
