Terrill and I have been in Utah since January 14th and it has been such a blast. We have been able to see so many friends and family! Mason took his first plane ride and did amazing. He slept the whole time (surprise). He also has been waking up later in the night which means more hours of sleep for me! While Terrill was gone during the week my mom and I were able to hang out, we did projects around the house, went walking, watched american idol and hung out with family and friends. It has been so much fun to be here and to have a roommate while Terrill is away! I was also able to meet up with some college roommates who I haven't seen in forever, and visit with the Delano's.

Sadly, today was Masons 2 month check up. I say sadly because he had to get shots, poor little man. But I am grateful for them in the long run because they will help him to stay healthy. He screamed for about 3 seconds and then stopped and looked around the room like nothing happened. Now that I am a mommy, I even get excited about his doctor appointments to see how much weight he has gained or if he has gotten taller. It's just so exciting :) We love our growing boy.
Weight: 11lbs 1 oz (40%)
Height: 22 1/2 Inches (40%)
Head Circumference: 15 1/4 Inches (25%)

This new years eve we spent with the Wolfs and we had a great time spending time with all the family!! We all headed to Happy Hollow in San Jose for the daytime activity. My little niece Kayla loved it and she was the perfect age to enjoy the activities. Logan and Mason...not so much. But in a few years they will love it too! After Happy Hollow, Terrill and I snuck a trip to In n Out burger and then headed up to Danville. We had a wonderful dinner and celebrated the new year at about 7:30pm instead of staying up til 12:00am. These days the one thing I always look forward too is SLEEP!! So I couldn't have cared less about staying up until midnight. Happy New Years everyone!!
Does someone look to big for the ride??
Aunt Ashley and her babes...they love her!!
babies will be babies
I love him!!!

Needless to say we were really bad about taking pictures the day of Christmas. We started the day off by exchanging gifts at home and then going to the Hoxies and eating a delicious breakfast. We also opened presents and got to talk with my brother John!!! It was so amazing to be able to Skype with him. He is doing so well and Terrill, Mason and I got 10 minutes to talk with him all by ourselves. That was the best treat on Christmas! That afternoon we went to church and then down to Campbell to my Aunt Kristas house. We had a Christmas feast and exchanged gifts. The whole day was really fun! My mom was also in town and she stayed with us for 2 nights. I LOVE it when she visits and stays with us!
This year we did Christmas with the Wolfs in 2 parts. We celebrated on Christmas eve and on Dec 29th when the Ball family arrived. We had so much fun with everyone! We played games, exchanged gifts, ate yummy food and enjoyed each others company.

Tummy time - you can do it! haha
On wed Dec 28th we blessed Mason. It was a wonderful night and Terrill did a great job. We had the blessing on a week day so that our whole family could be there. We had tremendous support from our family and the spirit was very strong that night. After the blessing we enjoyed dinner and dessert as a family.
