All grown up.

Mason is officially a toddler now and the temper tantrums are fast approaching. We just got back from Arizona and are getting ready to host Thanksgiving for the first time.

Mason's Birthday was a ton of fun and we found out he loves sugar. Who could blame him? We had such a great time celebrating with all the people we love. He made out like a bandit and now we have no idea what to get him for Christmas. He was really excited about his birthday pancakes as you can see.





We also took a trip to Arizona where Josh raced his 4th Ironman and shattered his PR by a long shot. While in AZ we also visited the Phoenix Zoo which was really awesome! We also found out Mason loves bubbles and rocks. He's such a boy!

Summer Time

Summer time is flying by and we're having fun! Mason is growing like a weed he will be one here in no time. We are busy planning his birthday party and hoping the nice weather will hold out. In June we went to Lake Tahoe and had our first official family vacation that didn't involve us traveling for a race. We've been traveling all over the place and loving watching Mason grow and experience the world.

Here is some photos from our Lake Tahoe vacation. Mason loved the pool and the sand on the beach.

Let's be honest.....

Let's be honest here. Before I had a baby there were many things I could do without blinking an eye. Examples are take a nap anytime, button my pants up, get 8 hours or more of uninterrupted sleep, didn't have to try to find where I smelled baby puke on myself, date night with my hubby and the house was pretty clean most of the time. Mason's been alive for 221 day's and I can honestly say I'm happier now than I have ever been in my whole life. I love my husband. I love my son. I love my family. I am the luckiest woman alive to have such a loving support system.






So what if I average 4-6 hours of sleep a night. I could use an IV drip of coffee most mornings but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I adore waking up every morning and get to snuggle with this happy face. 

We celebrated Mother's Day by relaxing as a family and eating delicious food. The boy's let me sleep in till 7:30. I can't remember the last time I slept that late. I know it was definitely at least 221 days ago. When I woke up I had a gorgeous plant of lily's waiting for me. Instead of getting me a bouquet of flowers that would die within the week. Josh usually gets me something I can plant in my yard and see grow. 



We went to a yummy breakfast early enough to beat the crowds and came home and relaxed till mid afternoon. I took two naps. Wahoo!!! After the second I put the baby back ribs on the bbq and relaxed till it was time to baste them with a little sauce. Thanks husband for such an amazing day! You're my rock and my everything. I love being a mom. It's the best job in the entire world. I couldn't live a day without seeing this handsome little tot smile. Happy Mother's Day too all the mom's out there who follow our blog. Sorry I stink at updating but life just gets so darn busy!



Mason Update:
7 1/2 months old
weighing in at 17lbs 4 oz
about 30 inches tall
currently loves to eat and is never full.

On Mother's Day he crawled for the first time. I know by the end of the week my freedom is pretty much out the door. He's always happy. Laughing and smiling. He loves the outdoors and loves the water.

Time flys when you're having fun.....

I cannot believe on tuesday my sweet little boy will be six months old. Man time really goes by faster when you have a little baby in your life. I fall more in love with this cute face everyday.


I cannot image one day without this little bean. Some highlights from Mason's fifth month of life are:
  • He is getting really good at sitting up. He still hasn't picked up the concept of catching his own fall yet. 
  • He has been trying lots of new foods and loves anything and everything. 
  • He is really reaching for anything and everything.
  • At night he loves to practice his "crawling" which means he scoots backwards until he backs himself into a corner in his crib. 


We just moved to a home with a huge backyard and we have been enjoying playing outside in the nice weather. Mason loves to feel the grass and wiggle his toes in it. 




This past weekend Josh raced in the Portland Spring Classic Duathlon and WON! It was a super exciting to see him so happy and at the top of his game. I am sure proud to be the Mom and Wife of these two guys! They make me one happy lady! 



We hope everyone had a great Easter weekend! Hopefully you were able to enjoy some of the sunshine!

4 Month's Old.....

I can't believe it's February! The month you let all your loved ones know how much you love them. This February my heart is bursting with love and joy. I just quit working to stay at home with my little peanut and I couldn't be happier with our decision. It was a really tough one to make but so worth it. Mason is 4 months old today I can't believe how the time has flown by. He is growing like a weed. It looks like he has the Monda gene and is going to be very tall. He's grown 6" since his birth and is putting on the pounds like a pro. 

He is really starting to grab at objects and our faces. He really knows who he belongs to now. He likes to observe other people from the comfort of mom or dad's lap. He still stinks at sleeping but he makes up for it in cuteness. Man we love this little guy. Here's a few photos of his third and fourth month of life. We are going to see Grandpa Monda in Arizona in a few weeks. This will be Mason's first trip on the plane. I am not gonna lie I'm a little nervous but I think he will be just fine. 

Here are his four month stats: 
14lbs 12oz
26" long
