Living Life while Waiting

We are getting much closer to Mason's double surgery (9 days to go).  I think it will be interesting to see how Mason handles the long leg cast.  I suspect the cast will be quite heavy for him (he's not even 30 lbs).  The last time he wore casts was when they were correcting his clubfeet.  He was only a teeny baby then. 

Mason has been enjoying these cube chairs a lot lately.  He sits in them, uses them to climb up on things, turns one like a table for drawing on, and climbs on top of them in table form to sit up high.  I think they've been a great addition to his 'life is physical therapy' environment.  We try to have things around that encourage him to reach, stretch, climb, and use his body in new ways.  These have fit right in to that. 

He has also become fascinated with drawing.  He prefers pens and will draw teeny little things all over paper with his tongue sticking out as he concentrates!  Then he wants someone to draw Curious George.  I'm not the best monkey illustrator!

All in all Mason is doing well and enjoying being two and a half.  Life is good!


  1. I love the picture of him drawing! I have one who sticks her tongue out when she's working on something she finds that she needs to concentrate on and I think it's cute as a button! I'm still praying for y'all

  2. Tristan, Thinking of you all as you wait for Mason's surgery! I will pray. We had to cancel Eliza's first appointment with the clinic when we were stuck in China...but I hope to reschedule that soon! Thank you for your support while we were there!!!

  3. The tongue helps a lot! lol I am glad to know I am not the only one to do that I was starting to think I was weird. Hehehehe
