Where does the time go?

Mason is growing up to fast and well, becoming his “own” person with his very OWN opinions.
It has been absolutely the most rewarding thing to watch in my entire life!
I blinked this week and realized that I no longer had my little baby boy, but instead an active, talkative, toddler…
He is my child so this should be no surprise, however when I say talkative I mean talkative.
His language is his own and it is so adorable.
Here is a quick lesson of how to speak “Mason”:
- Te Te = Auntie
- GunKle = Uncle
- Bapo = Grandpa Garka
- ME = Mason
- Bapple = Apple
- Nana = Grandma Kelly / Banana
- Mine’s = Mine
- Grammy = Grandma Joyce
- Mommies Toy = iPad
- Daddies Toy = iPod touch
- Bobbie = Cousin Aubrie
- Fruck = Truck (This at times is embarrassing )

Mason’s vocabulary in the past 4-6 months has tripled and during his recent speech evaluation with his therapist he tested 5 months ahead! This is such an answered prayer!
When we first learned that the part of the brain affected by his stroke’s was the part that affects speech, we of course were concerned for the future. At the time is was to early to tell If he would learn to speak or what the total effect would be.

This is now just another miracle we have watched God play out in our son’s life!


Hi Kelsey,
Gracie rides at Little Bit in Woodinville ( It is a wonderful program, I can't say enough good things about them! Hooray for Mason's speech evaluation :) Gracie had a 50% speech delay a year ago and now she is ahead in speech as well. It is amazing what these little ones can overcome!

Today's post title comes to you from the one and only Greg Garka... Thanks for the idea babe!

As far as Mason is concernced today was another good day for our little man!
We made our goal and got up and went on a total of three walks. The last walk of the night he spotted the “playroom” and was interested so we stopped and visited with our neighbors while he played. It was the highlight of the day.

His appetite decreased today but that is to be expected since he hadn’t yet had a bowel movement (in 6 days)– however about 60 minutes ago things changed in that department and I am happy to report his bowels are working and back in action…

During his echo he was again a crowd pleaser and was on his best behavior. The technician said that he was the best 3 year old she has done. It is so funny; he gets upset when something is about to happen and he doesn’t understand what. He tells us he is scared and then after we explain to him what they are going to do and that it won’t hurt – he is…
