We SO miss Story Hour at the Nashville Downtown Library!!

We were in Nashville last week for a consignment sale & Mason's 18-month check-up, and we happened to be there on a Wednesday so we were so excited that we could go to story hour! It was our little tradition earlier in the summer before we moved to go to story hour with Andrea & Baby Luke; Angela & Baby Cooke; Melissa & Bady Madison; and sometimes Jenny Beth & Baby Grant joined us! This visit was a little bit different though, and extra special! Mason was FINALLY big enough to go up to the stage to sit with the "big" kids when we sang "What a Wonderful World" at the end of story hour! Before, he would just sit in my lap and look on at those kids wondering what in the world they were doing up there, but now that he's walking and into all that stuff, I perched him right up on that stage and he actually stayed there! He looked the cutest. He had the privilege of sitting right next to "The Professor" so he got some extra attention! Mason just sat there and looked at the Professor, and then right into the eyes of the little girl next to him. Thank you. He was holding Luke's little play cell phone and kicking his little feet back and forth on the stage. I will never, ever forget it! It was definitely a reminder of the fact that my little boy is growing right up. I also couldn't believe how different Luke & Cooke act at story hour now that they're a few months older. They sit right up on their own and stare at everything going on, taking it all in. Cooke was even clapping his sweet little hands at the appropriate times! I wish we could go to story hour with our friends every Wednesday! BG girls, let's start taking a little trip down to Nashville on Wednesdays! ha ha! :)

"Come on Luke, man! It's okay, let's go hang out with Pete for a while! I'm sure your mom will let you. She's cool!" says Mason, while Luke's mommy is trying her best to grab a hold of her now-crawlin' little ball of energy! :)
Mason trying his best to get Pete to notice him. Pete is one of the characters who does story time sometimes. He is Marc's favorite!
Wait, how is Mason really that much bigger than the 2 other boys? It looks like a HUGE difference in this picture! In a couple of years, I'm sure there won't seem to be too much of a difference!
"It's A Wonderful World..."
Look at my sweet boy just sitting up there being so good! I think he was the most confused though.
Mason falling in love...
Getting special attention from the Professor
Kickin' his little feet back & forth against the stage... he is so proud of his new big boy Keds!
Mason running off from the little ones
Aww, Mason is all cuddled up against the Professor! But of course still looking at the little girl on the other side of him...
Look at those 3 boys paying the most attention to the story being read! Mason is trying his best to see over tall Cooke & his tall mommy! :)

Wait, where is Mason going?

Me, Angela, & Andrea with our sweet boys!

Looks like a lot of fun! Mason does look like such a big boy up there on stage. He's too cute. Love the last pic! Isn't it great to have girlfriends who have children about the same age!! Love it!!

Mason was so funny up on that stage by the Professor! Hope you get to come to another story time soon!
