Mason Turns 5!!!

So, this is a little late, but hey, better late than never!!! On February 26, Mason turned 5! To me, this is strange, because in my mind, Tyler is still 4 years old and Elena is 6. So, I'm not really sure how this can happen, but it has!!! Time has really been going fast lately. Now, on to our son. Mason is so full of life and personality, it is hard to capture in words what he means to us. Mason is one of those kids you look at and you can just see his mind working. He is always wondering how things work, who made things and why things are the way they are. Sometimes I feel inadequate to answer his inquiring questions! Way too smart for his own good. I love the way Mason can adapt so well to any situation. When we moved to Portland, we signed him up for preschool. On the first day of school, his teacher told me, "You couldn't even tell he was new, he just fit right in." I love that about him, it makes life so much easier just to roll with the punches, which he is doing great at. If I'm having a rough day, all I need to do for a little laugh is think of the many funny things Mason has said over the years. There are just a few posted on the side of our blog, check them out, they are pretty funny. One of my favorites is how picky Mason is with his hair, always telling me how to do it. The other day I was doing his hair in a mohawk, which is usually his request, and he says, "Mom instead of doing a mohawk, why don't you do 2 horns!!!" I keep telling myself I'll get a journal and write it all down, so I won't forget how funny these things are. Anyways, Mason is just tons of fun, always testing new limits and pushing himself to new heights, literally, he climbs this tree in our backyard, and each day he gets higher and higher. I'm not sure if I want him to get all the way to the top, it's about 25 feet in the air, but if I let him, I'm sure he could. Exploring and going on adventures is at the top of hist list. So, thank you Mason for filling our life with fun, love and laughter!!! We love you!!!
