My Sweet Mason

Mason "Warnen,"

Mommy loves you so much. It is unbelievable how much love Daddy and I have for you and it grows every day. You are such a joy; just so much fun to be around. You are well-mannered and sweet and ultra talkative, bossy. Sounds just like I am describing myself.
This is my last entry little man. Writing you was fun but now, we are just too busy enjoying our fabulous life.

Love you forever (whether you like it or not),
Mommy and Daddy Scott (LOL)

Dear my sweet Mason,

Time is just flying by. I don't apologize for not writing lately; we've been having so much fun. You have the sweetest disposition with that feisty scorpio spirit. Nothing can keep you down. You literally never stop talking. It's no wonder I not only couldn't keep up with all the new words and phrases. You now say phrases up to six words! Strangely enough, you have picked up a NY accent when you say certain things (shour =  sure) and it cracks us up. You love being outdoors be at the beach or the mountains. Obsessions still include water, fans, and vacuums. Thankfully, you don't tantrum much because of how well you can communicate with us but when you do, you lie on the floor, scream a little, then you're over it (yeah! for that). You love getting owies now because you get kisses. "Kiss it" and you know Mommy is there. Sadly, you bite your fingers so you have owies consistently (in addition to the ones you get from being a 2 yr. old boy). You have been without a pacifier for over a month with the exception of nap time. You never even ask for it (much better transition then we expected). One night, we forgot to give it to you and from then on, no issues.
So I said we've been busy. From grandparents day on, we have been enjoying fall to the fullest. From pumpkin patches to orchards, from the fair to the beach and how about a hayride in the mtns., I think we've done it all. Seems we've been celebrating your birthday all season!

This is the best time of our lives yet! It's hard to believe it's only going to get better. Happy 2nd birthday angel.

Love you forever,

Growing, we do it every day


Yes, I quoted Barney. It's only fitting seen as how you are obsessed with the three Barney VHSs we own. Each day you surprise me by revealing a new trick up your sleeve. Like tonight in the bath tub, you were playing perfectly (which is more rare than an uncooked steak) and I heard you whisper, "clean up." You began putting everything back in the EXACT place you got it from; shampoo, loofah, toys. When you were finished, you said, "out" and once I pulled you out you said, "baby." After every bath, I bundle you up as tight as I can and I parade you around saying, "look, I have a new baby, oh sweeeeet baby Mason" and you absolutely love it. This isn't the first time you have said that but it reminds me that those mirror neurons of yours are working overtime.

A few days ago, Daddy and I took you to the park to play with AJ and Wy Wy (or Iat, whichever you are in the mood to use). The pictures speak for themselves.

You are learning so much at school and I love that we can see it translate to home already. I love coming home on Tuesday and Thursday and seeing all of the awesome artwork. When I show you, you tell me what you made with a big smile on your face. You also love church on Sundays. Every time I go to pick you up, you are chasing someone around the room.
We tried on your 4th (yes, 4th) costume for Halloween. You don't like it as much as your Elmo or dog costumes but I know Daddy does. Your 4th costume (to be worn trick-or-treating) will be fabulous (no clues or nothin'
The three of us have been having so much fun together the past few weeks. I really love our family dynamic! We have taught you how to play football (down (you squat), set, hut/hike and we run at you LOL), taken you to Celebrate Freedom where you got your first tattoo, swung you in your chute to your new favorite song (Needtobreathe Washed by the Water), "boomed" on the bed into clean laundry, and just had a blast.
Yes, the twos can be terrible and trying but overall, you make them pretty terrific.

Bless Your Heart


Bless your heart for thinking you are seven. For thinking you can do everything and that the phrase, "your too little for that" will get you a smirk followed by the action...completed with ease. Bless your heart for being so gosh darn cute. It saves you from a gosh darn spankin'. Bless your heart for being so smart. It's going to kill me. Bless your heart for being so generous with your love. I hope it doesn't hurt you one day.
Bless my heart for beginning to feel useless. You are growing up too fast, Porky.

Put that smile upon your face

and let's get ready for school!


Tuesday was your first day of 2 year old preschool. I was very blessed to be able to experience you walking in for the first time. We got to school early so I could take pictures; 
Mommy: say cheese
Mason: no, no mommy
Needless to say, you wanted to be independent. On the way, you said, "school to play." You walked right into the classroom and started playing. Not that I was surprised but man, it proved that you are a little boy!

From what I know, you had a great first day. You were bitten but apparently it's a rite of passage (and they said you got over it really quick). Today you came home with two art projects and the director asked Daddy if you could come more than 2 days because you love it so much.
In other news, 
you walked up 5 steps and down 6 steps completely unassisted today which the the most to date.
you saw a bug, freaked a little (you hate them thank Jesus), then stepped on it. I have taught you well young grasshopper...
we LOVE Gymboree Play and Music. you know what comes next, you like to kiss Gymbo, and you say, "yeah!" all the time
you had a great play date with Wyatt yesterday. honestly, it was probably your best play date ever. you two really played with each other! chasing and laughing (you were hysterical; I don't think I've ever seen you smile so big), bouncing on the trampoline together and cracking up, sharing toys. Wyatt would say, "ready set (or what sounded like it" and you would say "go." just what AJ have always wanted for you two.

Friday night we went to Six Flags. The park was only open to Lockheed employees so it wasn't super packed. I have never heard you say, "weeee" so many times in your life. There were so many rides you could go on; it was great.

you HATED waiting for the rides to start

both Gamaw and I got dizzy; you were bored

nice outfit change. at least we had one for you after Skull Island....
Love you busy bee,
