Having a GRAND Time

Mason is such a lucky little boy...not only is he the first grandchild on both sides but both sets of grandparents live only two hours away. He is already the light of their lives. They have all managed to come and spend some snuggle time with him every week since he arrived five weeks ago. This week will be no exception. We know that with grandparents come a little extra attention and probably a little spoiling. Mason more than likely will twist an arm to two in order to hear one more book at bedtime... only to manage to extend that bedtime beyond what is normal. He will eat breakfast cereal that he doesn't eat at home. I am sure that Mason will convince all grandparents to buy him something that we told him he didn't need. But what Mason doesn't know, that he will soon come to learn, is that he couldn't be any luckier. He has four of the best grandparents a little boy could ask for. Mason will learn wonderful life lessons. He will learn what it means to be a good person by the example they not only have set for us, but also the example they will teach him.

Four weeks

It is hard to believe that Mason is one month old! The past four weeks have flown by and it is amazing to see how he changes every day. During the past month, Mason's favorite past-time has been meeting new friends and family. We have enjoyed all the visits and appreciate the many miles driven by so many of you! For those of you who haven't met our little bundle of joy, we can't wait for you to come and spend some cuddle time with him.

When Mason isn't charming his admirers one of his favorite activities is story time. He loves listening to either one of us read to him and it is so sweet to look down and see that little mesmerized face. Hopefully he will enjoy reading as much as his mom and dad. Please continue to check Mason's blog as we will keep you updated with pictures and stories of our little buddy.
