Through this all Mason has been such a trooper. Over a month ago, we removed his changing table- no problem, yesterday we moved the glider out of his room, again no biggie. However, last night we switched dressers and while his room was dresserless- he screamed bloody murder. We were both so surprised he was attached to the dresser- so we quickly finished the switch and showed him his new big boy room- he was a little better but still all night pretty cranky. I kept noticing too that he was shaking his left hand. Well, it turns out that while his room was dresserless, his lamp (which uses an old 3 way light bulb) was on the ground- he turned it on and burnt his poor little hand. I was so upset that 1) he burnt his little finger, 2) that it took me like 3 hours to figure it out, and 3)I couldn't make it better. We have been applying Aloe and it seems to be helping- today he was much better.
So that was our Saturday- after so much time working on beanette's room- we decided Sunday was Mason's Day! We took him to the mall play area to let him run free and play with mom and dad. He had such a great time and it is amazing to see how daring he is getting. He has no problem climbing the big boats, or running with the big boys. I remember the first time we brought him there, all he would do was run around and look at the toy structures- now he is unstoppable on them! We also went to do some research on double strollers- we are pretty sure we want a double jogger, so we started researching today.I think we have it narrowed down, we just have to see if our top choice will fit the infant car seat.
It doesn't feel like Sunday, probably because I have Jury Duty tomorrow so Steve is taking the day to play Mr. Mom. I'll let you know how jury duty goes and once the room looks a little better I'll take pictures to post!

Mason and I attended a little gym preview class and we learned how to hang from a bar. That weekend we went out to the park to show off our new skills to Steve. I was so proud of Mason hanging for as long as he did! We enjoyed the class, but the semester runs until June so we are gonna pass this time.

Overall it was a great day. I love having these moments with Mase and know that as he gets older they will only get better!

As for the bedding, I love the Penelope crib bedding set AND luck would have it, PB sent me a coupon for 20% off one item. When we met to get our pieces- they had a special on three pieces sold together, so the sweet saleslady gave us the 20% off the 3 piece special and let us use the coupon to buy the fourth piece of the set so it was complete! We have the bumper, quilt, bed skirt and a sheet. I will need to get a few more sheets but we will wait until the have another sale.
My other big plan for the nursery is to monogram beanette's initials on the wall. So I am hoping we will have a name picked out before she comes, and then I can go ahead and monogram it. (we will still keep the name a secret but you may at least come closer to guessing! So without further adue. Here are pictures of the bedroom furniture and bedding!
