Morning at the Mercer's

Gets breakfast in his room, dumps it out, tries to feed it to mommy, watches some Curious George and whines about having to have his diaper changed...and whines about too many pictures. When he gets freedom from his room, he runs to mommy & daddy's room, jumps on the bed, then tries to sneak his blankets downstairs with him.

Stumbles out of bed, puts on her own clothes, & eats her breakfast in solitude downstairs. Pouts about having to get up & not stay home, tries to force a smile for a picture and finally frowns at too many pictures.

Good Morning!

Mason gets comfy

Big boy bed for Mason

I'm a little sad. My sweet little Mason is no longer a baby...gave up bottles a few weeks ago  and now we converted his crib into a toddler bed. Feels like just yesterday I was writing a similar blog post for Addie...and I think she was even younger when we moved her up. But alas, Mason is ready. Last night was his first night of "freedom" and he did great. Fell asleep just as we left him!

Sleep tight my big boy!

Mase and Addie show us what they're working with

Addie's been dancing more and more, and a lot of the time it looks like Elaine from Seinfield. I'm not sure if she has rhythm or not.  It is undeniable that Mase has the groove though, he's been dancing since day one. Anytime there's music, he's bouncing his head.

Well, Mason showed us some new moves last night:

And here's Addie with her headphones on, check out her face when Taylor Swift comes on (you can't miss it haha)
