Well, it's the 18th of the month, and that means that Mason is another month older! He's 8 months now and has FINALLY started to cut some teeth!!! Let's see.... so far this week he has surprised us by popping through 3 - yes THREE teeth in the past 4 days! And look at him, he couldn't be happier! I think he knows that the more teeth that come in, the more mommy might share her food with him!? Who knows! Mason is such a happy baby and cracks us up all the time! The three pictures on the top and bottom left are the 3 faces he makes constantly - as I am assuming that's how he deals with the tooth situation. But other than crabbiness when hungry (aren't we all!?) he is so mild mannered! I just love him to pieces! He is all over the house, sometimes quicker than I expect, and is now standing up on almost everthing. His favorite is to sneak behind the recliner and stand in the window beating on the glass and talking to whoever might listen... which is usually my neighbors cat in their window! It's cute! He's a real joy and I couldn't have asked for a better baby! (well, they've all been really good!- I think the good Lord knows me too well!)

A few weeks ago, when we were getting blasted with snow, Dave's Granny sent this fine hat to him so that his ears would stay warm when he is out plowing! How nice! Well, Granny, these pictures are for you! We like it so much that we all had to model it! Gotta love it! I know... we're a bunch of crazed lunatics, but oh well! Thanks Granny for lightening up our day!

Now... as far as the bike riding... Well, just a few posts ago, like 5 days ago, we were under a blanket of 2 foot of snow (plus whatever what here before the big storm) and today it was 60 degrees, sunny and almost all of the snow is melted with the exception of some larger piles, and the boys were out after school riding their bikes in the road!!!! CRAZY! It's FEBRUARY! Dave, who plows and is up to speed on the latest weather report, said to me today that it is supposed to snow in 2 days. So we'll see... but the crazy Northwest Indiana continues! It was nice to open the windows and let the winter out of the house for the day though! Wonderful!

Well, Mason decided to try out his knees the other day during the snow storm... Looks like he found the baskets and knows there are toys in them! What a stinker! He thinks he's pretty cool though... but since he is now pulling himself up a little bit, Dave has to lower his crib so he won't fall out! Yeah for Dave since he has the whole day off today! Wonderful!!!

The snow's up to the speed limit sign in our yard, and the drift next to our porch is about 4 foot high!
