Miracle Mason is now 30 months old (as of May 30th)! Wow! Is he really already 2 ½ years old? This little guy has sure been through a lot in his 2 ½ years of life!
Although it feels like I have run many many marathons in these last 2 ½ years (but actually not even 1 since he was born) and parts of this journey seem like a decade ago, it seems like just yesterday that I held 5lb little newborn Mason and had NO idea of the journey we were about to begin nor that our family’s lives would change forever!
At 3 days old when Mason crashed and ‘flat lined’ in front of my eyes I had NO idea of the trials, the joys, the fears, the blessings, the prayers, the tears, nor the mountains we would climb during the journey we were entering to fight for the life of our very special child.
I wouldn’t trade all the lessons I’ve learned or the faith I’ve gained during these last 2 ½ years for ANYTHING!
Happy 30 months Miracle Mason! Cheers to you and all the mountains you have climbed!! Thank you for teaching all of us so many lessons about life and HOPE!!
Here are a few pictures from the last few weeks:
Busy making messes!
A visit from Daddy and Big Brother Preston
Having lunch in Half Moon Bay
Taking over the driver's seat.......watch out!
Fell asleep talking on his toy phone.
Playing peek-a-boo with his favorite blanket!
Not liking 'blood pressure time'!
Cute pictures in the backyard!
So happy to be outside!
Loving walks to the parks and enjoying the swings.
A Sunday picnic at the park with Mommy.
A cute little tid bit: Mason was very sad when the home health care company came and picked up his O2 concentrator and tanks the other day. He had real big alligator tears!! Poor little guy! He must have felt like they were taking away his toys or something very important. He should have been jumping for joy like the rest of us to know he doesn’t need extra O2’s anymore!!
Dear family back home,
Oh how we miss you and wish you were here to celebrate 30 months with baby brother. I miss how you make him laugh better than I ever can! I miss watching him scoot around the house following you. Mason and I both miss your smiles, hugs, and kisses. I’d even come home to all the messes and piles of laundry if I could just to be with you right now!! Soon. Soon. Soon we will be together again!
Mommy and Mason
