A Day in the Life with Mason

Mason was born October 8, 2012.  He is the light of my life!  I never knew how much joy this child would bring me!  We have fun together truly each day!

He is usually the first one up in our house because he is the first one to go to bed.  When he wakes up he is ready for the day!  He loves to play!  He eats oatmeal and fruit each morning while watching his favorite morning show Sesame Street! After that he gets dressed and takes his daily 2 puffs of Inhalor and brushes his teeth we are ready to leave the house!

We are then off to take his older brother to High School.  Mason has two older brother who he simply adores! We then come home and wait for the physical therapist to come. Mason has PT, OT, and ST once a week.  After that he plays a bit more and we run some errands together usually grocery shopping.


Then we eat lunch together usually watching Baby Babble, Signing Time, or leap frog ABC video.  We read books together, work on flash cards, learning the alphabet and colors, and work on puzzles.

Mason then takes a nap around 1:00 and by the time he wakes up its time to get both his big brothers from school.

We come home and usually if the weather is good we go for a walk with his brother.  We are practicing a lot of walking each day with his walker, and then he plays some more until dinner time!


Mason loves life, learning and people!  He is such a delight! He’s happy and just a joyful child!  I love him to pieces!
