I Need Mom Advice!!!

Mason is just over 5 months old now and he is still waking up at least 3 times through the night. After 5 months without a good nights sleep i am physically drained!
I have tried so many different things like, keeping him up later at night, or putting him to bed earlier, pumping and giving him a bottle to make sure he is getting enough right before bed. I wanted to wait until Mason was 6 months before feeding him cereals but i've even tried that out of desperation!! I've also tried giving him baths before bed and keeping him up longer during the day, not letting him take as many naps. The other night after the 6th time he woke up i made Bryce go get him and put him in bed with us cuz i couldn't handle it anymore. Now its a regular thing, after the 3rd or 4th time he wakes up i just put him in bed with us and you know how uncomfortable that is!! But even if he is in bed with us he still wakes up wanting to nurse, well not really nurse just be latched on then he goes back to sleep!! Sometimes his binky will be enough but most of the time he wants more!  He has had a little cold the last couple of week that may be adding to how many times he wakes up through the night but i'm not sure.
 Am I supposed to let him cry himself back to sleep even though he is a little sick and sounds like he is starving? I know i can't do that, it would be way to sad! Please help I'll take all the advice i can get!

3rd Year Anniversary!!

It's amazing how fast time flies when you are having fun!! Today is our 3rd year anniversary and we are more in love than ever!

So much has happened in the last 3 year but our favorite was when we became parents of course!! Bryce is such a good dad and Mason absolutely loves him!

We had our first Christmas as a family of 3, it was so much fun with Mason even tough he didn't understand any of it! I love the look on his face haha!

Bryce and i met while we were skiing up at Snowbasin almost 4 years ago.  We both would go skiing about 3 or 4 times a week for a few hours before school or work and we met when i jumped on the gondola with him and his friends. We ended up skiing the rest of the season together and we fell in love!

We celebrated our anniversary early because Bryce started school today but this year we went skiing up at the Canyons. It was such a beautiful day we were skiing above the inversion, as you can see in the picture. We left Mason with my mom for the first time longer than a couple of hours and it was so hard for me and i kept calling whenever i got the chance just to see how he was doing and ask if he missed me! After skiing we stopped at my parents to feed Mason and then we went out on our date to Thaifoon at the gateway and a movie. It was such a fun day!

5 Months Today!!

Oh wow can Mason really be 5 months old already?  It has been a blast the last 5 months, Bryce and I absolutely love being parents!!  Mason is such a happy boy who loves life.  Everyone always told me that it would get easier after 3 months, it actually took 4 with Mason but he seems so much happier now!  His acid reflux is so much better and he hardly ever throws up anymore it great. I always felt so bad for him and i felt like I couldn't do anything to comfort him, but now he is sleeping more at night and he is all smiles.  He has still only slept through the night once though!!

I just cant get enough of his cute smile!


It was so much over the holidays to see family, this is the first time all of the cousins on my side were together. It was really hard to get a good picture! haha

Mason tried solids for the first time!! He only likes it when Nana feeds it to him though!

I was so worried about our new life with a baby and our one year old dog, but Marley is so good with Mason and Mason love to watch her. He just stares at her, I think he is trying to figure out what she is!  Its so funny!

One day i laid Mason on his blanket in the living room to play so i could get some cleaning done and while i was in the other room i heard him laughing, when i went to check on him, Marley was jumping around him in a circle and then licking his hands as she circled him. Mason was still really little and it kinda scared me seeing her jump so close to him and as soon as i saw her i yelled NO! I felt so bad afterward and Marley has never played with him like that again its kinda sad.
