Gingerbread Fun!!!

We had The Yeip's and Olsen's over and we made gingerbread houses!  It was so much fun and everyone's house turned out great!!

This one is Bryce's and mine!! We made the gingerbread and Bryce built the house.  I tried to help but i couldn't figure it out, i was having a really hard time!! I built the chimney and that was it, i let him finish building and I decorated and made the trees!!

Isn't my chimney great?

Steve and Ronelle's

Eric and Lindee's
They both made theirs out of graham crackers and they both turned out great! (note to self: make your next house out of graham crackers!)

4 Months

I can hardly believe that Mason is already 4 months old, it has gone by so fast!! He had is 4 month check today with all those fun shots of course. Mason is such a trouper and only cried for a couple minutes. but it was such a sad cry that always makes me feel so bad, especially when he gives me a pleading look asking me to make it stop. I think I'm gonna start sending Bryce to those appointments by himself! The Dr. said you would never be able to tell Mason was Pre-mature by looking at him, he is such a big boy now, and he is getting so strong! Here are his stats:
Height- 24 1/2" 33%
Weight- 14.5 lbs  37%
Now these are based on a regular full term 4 mon. old baby but for babies his age born pre-mature he is 71% in height and 75% in weight.
We also found out that Mason qualifies for the RSV shots thru our insurance, so that means they will pay for him to get the shots!! Its one shot a month for 4 months and each shot costs $1000!! We are so blessed to be able to qualify.  They told us while we were in the hospital that we can try but not to get our hopes up because insurance companies are really strict for which babies will qualify and they have to be born 34 wks or earlier. Mason was born at 34 wks and 2 days so they weren't sure if he would qualify but he did and it is such a stress reliever, I am an overly paranoid mom and this helps set my mind at ease. But thats ok to be paranoid for your first baby right?

Mason rolls over so fast now you cant take your eyes off him or you'll miss it!

Look at his cute fat rolls, it took a long time for him to get those!

Mason's favorite things in life besides his Mom and Dad are getting his bum changed and taking baths!! What is it about boys loving to be naked? I don't get it! haha!

Hooray! Something Mason loves!!

I love this kid more than anything and i love how much he loves me but sometimes i just need to put him down!! Masons motto in life is hold me now and forever! He hates tummy time and his swing, and he is starting to get to the point where other people cant hold him even Bryce! Isn't 3 months a little early for that?  Any way my house looks like a Christmas bomb went off!  Yes i know its early but i am so excited for Christmas i just couldn't wait! Little did i know that it would take 5 days to put up the small amount of decorations that i own! Don't worry I'll wait until after Thanksgiving to put up the tree. (Bryce's doing not mine!)

I found this bouncer yesterday and Mason absolutely loves it!  And now i have time to actually clean and decorate. Its a win win situation we are both so happy!! :)

Did you know that Bryce is crafty? Look at this awesome hat that Bryce made for Mason. Isn't it so cute? It only took Bryce a couple hours to make. Im so proud of him i could never do that!!

Jade got to stay at my parents for a week while Dust went to his family golf tournament in St. George it was so fun and they got to meet Mason for the first time! Jade was able to see mason while he was in the hospital but for only about 20 minutes. Tate was so cute and always remembered baby Mason in his prayers! I cant wait until they live closer to home so we can play together more!

Can you believe that Paisley isn't quite a month older than Mason?! She is so cute and such a good baby.  she just learned how to spit and it was her favorite thing to do while she was here!

Jade and my mom made these and they are the best caramel apples i have ever had!! I kinda wish i never had one because i have been craving them so we made some more the other night with the Yeips! Haha

My friend Bri took these pictures after our Halloween party at about 10pm!!  She did such a good job and Mason was being so cute!!

Look at him he already knows how to pose for the camera!! Oh i Love being a mom!!!

I had to add this one as well!
Mason was wide awake early this morning after another long night, so Bryce took him so i could go back to sleep(isn't Bryce so sweet?). Bryce said that Mason sure was happy to see the sun come up, he was all smiles and he even giggled twice!! We think he giggled a couple times just over a week ago but we weren't sure. I'm so sad i missed it this morning.

Oh my goodness look how cute Mason's little smirk is!! I finally was able to catch the rare little smile on camera!! The doctors said that Mason will be behind in most things, especially emotional progress. I have just been dying to have more smiles, I really cant get enough of them!! Mason's first smile was when he was 8 wks old, which I guess that means he should've only been 2 wks! But i still only see smiles rarely now that he is 11 1/2 wks old.
I know this one is really fuzzy but it was such a cute big smile!! I stayed at my parents house Tuesday to wednesday canning grape juice and my mom was trying to get Mason to smile the whole time but he just wasn't up to it. Finally we were getting ready for bed and Mason was just staring at the wall and he got the biggest smile on his face. We looked to see what he was smiling at and he was staring at a picture of Jesus!! Isn't that so awesome? It was such an amazing experience it made me want to cry!
After canning the grapes we headed home. We hadn't seen Bryce for two days and as soon as Mason saw him, not only did he have the biggest smile I've ever seen him have, he kept that smile for a really long time!! Mason loves his daddy so much its so cute!!

Blessing Day

Mason was Blessed on Sept 27th in our home. The blessing was beautiful, Bryce did such a great job! Look how cute Mason is, he is wearing Bryce's old blessing outfit!

Here are the 4 generations of Coys. It was fun to have the family up to support Mason. Mason sure has been a blessing in our life, and we are having a blast raising him.

Hopefully we will be able to get him out to see the rest of the family as soon as possible.

Happy due date Mason!!!

Yesterday was Mason's official due date! Its so crazy that for the last 6 weeks he wasn't even supposed to be here! It has been he most amazing 6 weeks and i really cant imagine life without our little Mason! I was curious to see how big he is now that he is actually supposed to be he, so i had him weighed and measured him and he is a big boy! He weighs 8 lbs 10 oz. and is 21 1/4" tall.

"YA YA" loves Mason and we all love Ya Ya! SarahBeth leaves tomorrow to serve a mission in San diego, California. She is going to be such an amazing missionary I'm so excited for her. And by the time she gets home Mason will be calling her YA YA just like his cute cousin Tate! Its so weird to imagine that. Last night we had to say good bye to Sarah, they dont let you go to the MTC anymore so we just had to say good bye at my parents house. I'm going to miss her.

When my sweet grandma first saw Mason she kept saying "He's so perfect" and "I'm so happy for you!" over and over. It was so cute, I love my grandma!

The 2 most lovable boys in the world! Bryce is such a cute daddy, He helps me with Mason so much and whenever he holds Mason he just stares at him, smiling and then he'll finally say "Isn't he so amazing? I can't believe he's ours." I feel so lucky to have Bryce and Mason. Not only is Bryce a great dad but i couldn't ask for a better husband, he makes me so happy and i feel so safe when Im with him. I made a great choice for a husband and I'm so excited for our life together and the future kids to come!!

Its about time!

Finally an update on our lil' Mason! He is just over 5 weeks old now and is growing like crazy! we took him to the Dr. a week ago and he weighed 7.3 lbs its a huge difference from when he was 4.14 lbs he looks like a normal newborn now. We are so blessed with how well he is progressing.

Our camera broke so we haven't been able to get pictures up but we just got a new one so hopefully i can get better at blogging and keeping up to date on my posts!

Isn't he the cutest thing you've ever seen? I cant even believe how amazing it is to be a mom. Actually it is still sinking in that i am one! Its weird that Bryce and i are parents, but it is so wonderful! a lot harder than i thought, but wonderful!

I want to get Masons pictures taken so if anyone knows a good and inexpensive photographer let me know!

This is a picture of Mason's great grandpa Stockberger, he comes up to visit once a month. He's the perfect definition of a great grandpa. Always telling jokes and playing tricks, my face always hurts from laughing after he leaves! He calls Mason a Jar head! He is so silly.

And here is Uncle Shea! we named Mason "Mason Shea"! Mason has an Aunt Shay and an Uncle Shea! it just seemed right that we should name him Mason Shea after both of them! Shea loves having a nephew named after him, every time he sees or talks about Mason its "Mason Shea" he's so funny! Mason is wearing little shoes that Ana, Shea's Girlfriend made for Mason, they are so cute and it was so sweet of her!

Baby Mason

I (Jade, Tessa's sister) am posting in behalf of Tessa and Bryce because they are a little pre-occupied with being at the hospital. Is Mason not the cutest thing ever? I got to go meet him the other day and fell completely in love. He is such a special boy with such a special spirt. He is doing so good. He is now off the oxygen tubes and finished with the lights. The only help he needs now is with his feedings.

Tessa is doing so well. After 48 hours in labor in the hospital she has recovered quite well. She is quite the trooper and is by Mason's side every chance she can get. Both Tessa and Bryce are good parents.
