Mason Probal Labonte

I just talked to my social worker from Dillon. We are still hoping that we may be able to travel by Christmas. I won't be super disappointed if we can't, since my sister is due with her first child on December 27th. If we haven't travelled yet, I'll be going to Virginia to be with her!


Tami also told me that I could post now, so get ready for a whole bunch of pics covering his first 2 years :) He is super gorgeous, and I love his big old grin. We also got a small update this morning. He is sitting without support if he is put in a sitting position, he can stand with support, he is saying a few words and calls his Ayah "aye." All of this is good news for us. I'm not a medical expert in any way, but watching his videos, his legs look straight and strong, so we're hoping we can get him mobile once he gets home.
OK, the much anticipated pictorial debut of Mason:
13 days old



This was the first picture we saw of him. Love at first sight.


We've heard that he's very attached to his Ayah.

I know he looks sad in this one, but look at those curls!
Those big, brown eyes
There's that grin!
Completely infectious!
He thinks everything is funny :)

Julie, our whole family thinks he looks like Rup. With his curls, his crinkley nose, and that grin. Like Anju said, this is God's Blessing.
