Mason James Dietzen

Wednesday, May 18, 2011


Yesterday we had Mason's 18 month check up. It's hard to believe he is so old already. He is a full-blown toddler and definately ALL BOY! Mason was 29lbs and 33 1/2 inches long, both 90% for his age! We are hoping he continues this growth and gets the Dietzen genes for height :)

Our doctor had recommend weaning him off the bottle by 18 months. I knew it was approaching and had been testing the waters to see if he would drink milk from a sippy cup, but he was not having it. So we let him have the bottle a little longer. This past weekend we decided to go cold turkey and not give him a bottle, but offer milk in a sippy cup. He was not happy about it, but for him cold turkey was the only way! He doesn't drink nearly as much milk now, but that's okay. Did you know at this age they should be drinking about 12oz of milk a day? However, if you give them other diary such as yogurt that counts for their milk intake and it counts double. For example 4 oz of yogurt counts for 8oz of milk. That is wonderful for us because Mason loves yogurt!

We have been loving some sunny days here in Spokane, although Mason would go outisde in any weather condition. But we've been spending the majority of our daytime outside which he loves. This past weekend he helped daddy get his flowers all planted (one of JD's favorite hobbies). We've been going to the park, going for walks and helping daddy and grandpa mow their lawns.Mason is also obsessed with putting other people shoes on. It doesn't matter who's they are, he will try to put them on and walk in them, he's actually pretty coordinated.

He also loves to sit in the drivers seat of any vehicle and pretend to drive and play with all the buttons.

Playing catch up!

I realize I have not posted in quite some time, so sorry about that. I hope to do better from here on out. I'm just going to recap some of the things that happended in the last few months and then just start fresh from there.

Some random moments in January:

I'll play with anything :) A broken sprinkler head, he is just like his daddy!
This is from just this past week...just haning out outside pointing up to the sky.

Nice little Sunday trip to Costco.

We took a trip with my parents down to Palm Desert in January and got to see Uncle Derek and our good friends Brad, Shannon and Sawyer. It was so much fun to spend time with everyone and enjoy some sunshine. Mason and Sawyer played really well together and we were sad to say goodbye.

Here is Mason loving the sunshine in his green crocs from Auntie Lindsay.

Winter SNOW!!!

If you know Mason very well, you know he LOVES to be outside. He doesn't care if it is 20 degress out and snowing or pouring down rain he wants to go outside. This winter we've had several dumps of snow and he has gotten many opportunities to go outside.

He doesn't care that his cheeks are bright red and his snot is drying on his face!

Over New Years J.D. and Nick made a killer sledding path in their parents backyard! Check it out. Mason went down a fee times, but it was more for the enjoyment of the older "children."

Mason Turned One

On November 16, 2010 Mason turned one. He started walking a week or so before his birthday and he was off running around soon after that. We had a birthday party for him and had a great turnout. He was loving all the attention and got spoiled with gifts. So many toys! Thank you to everyone for all the wonderful gifts!!
