This time 10 years ago, we were preparing for the birth of our second son, Mason. It’s hard to remember a time before we had kids, but this boy stole our hearts and energy the minute he entered this world.

We thought that we knew everything there was to know, since we were already parents to our 3-year-old son, but this kid broke all of the barriers of what we knew as parents. I should’ve suspected he would never “fit a mold” when he started sleeping 12 hours through the night at a month old.
