This picture is taken in our backyard where we planted wild flowers in Grace's memory. On her angel day April gave everyone a pack of flowers that attracts butterflies and we all planted them. I always see butterflies surrounding these flowers and I just love them!!!

I was going through Carson's stuff and I couldn't resist putting this hat on him!!
We had a friend of mine from the MISS group come by and see Carson today. They are adopting from Ethiopia and I can't wait to see their bundle of joy. I am so excited that Carson will have a playmate!!

Relaxing day

Carson after his bath!!

We did not do much today-Thank goodness!! We went to Brian's parent's house so that they could watch Carson while I took Duke on a much needed walk. He has started howling, crying as if he's in a caged up house. Bella is gone because she is in season so he is bored.

Tomorrow we are going to eat lunch with some friends from work and then hang out. Another nice relaxing day!!

1 Month Old!

I can not believe that he is 1 month old today!! It seems like we just came home- 1 week ago today and he is already growing and getting bigger. He is such a sweet boy!! You will notice that he has 2 different outfits on in these pictures because he pooped just as I taking a picture and it went everywhere!! I mean everywhere!!! It got on the carpet, me, Duke and of course all over him. We love him so much and he is already spoiled!!

Here is an update of somethings he likes and dislikes:

LIKES: loves to eat, bath time, cuddle (He is a great cuddler!!), pacifier, go for a walk in the baby bjorn

DISLIKES: car seat, having his clothes changed, diaper changes,

We went to the doctor yesterday to get Carson established and he weighs 8lbs 15oz. He has gained 6 oz since Monday. His thrush is looking much better and we have a week more of medication to go. He had some bloodwork done and did not even cry. I was amazed!! He is such a good baby.

We have just been hanging out and getting a routine down. The dogs came home yesterday and they love him. Duke thinks that he is a toy and Bella likes to smell him. When they first met him, Carson's head was soaking wet from getting licked by Duke and Bella. They are starting to get use to him and it will only be time before Carson is chasing them everywhere!!

here are the pics of Carson New Room. PJ and Aunt Nancy painted picked out furniture, Dad Picked out the rocker, and put up the border. Everything looks so good. We were very surprised when we got home to see that his room was ready.

We're Free!!

Well we got the call today and we are officially free to go home. We were at the Coca Cola store and my phone was ringing. Brian answered and he smiled and said we can go home. I wanted to jump up and down and scream. I have felt like a chained animal here and I'm definitely ready to go home. Here are some pictures of our last day in Vegas

We were watching the water show at the Bellagio and it was to the song God Bless the USA. I had the chills the entire time just thinking about what we were doing in Vegas and how lucky we are. I have to say that it was a powerful show!!

I do have one question for everyone- Who can go to Vegas and not play one slot and not drink one drop of alcohol?? I have to say that was us!!!

Quiet Day

Carson is watching Monday Night Football!

The first thing we have that has his name on it!! I loved it.

Today we went to the doctor to have the thrush checked out and he is 8 pounds and 9 ounces. He said that he is growing strong, doing well and everything looked good. He changed the medication for his thrush because he said that it should be better than what it was.

We also went to Babies R Us to look for a stroller/car seat. We found one that we liked and will probably get it when we get back. Other than that, we went to Target, and to pick up some papers from the agency. We've also beeen doing laundy because it is piling up here with the three of us. Everything smells lovely from the 103 degree heat!! We will definitely be sleeping in tomorrow because I'm tired.

Bass pro sports and the "explosion"

We went to the Bass Pro Sports store last night for dinner. A huge salt water tank was in the middle of the store and we took some pictures in front of it. Everyone loved him there. A lady next to us wanted to hold him and Brian reluctanly let her. They didn't have much for Carson in clothes so we didn't look very long.
The "Explosion"- Last night Brian was holding Carson and he started saying that something smelled. I said that he probably farted and brushed him off. Well the smell started getting worse. Brian started gagging and I started laughing. He was pooping and it smelled the entire room. His poop was the grossest foul, smelling poop ever. He was worst than any grown man ever!! Brian was spraying the room with cologne and then we were gagging at the smell. Brian went and took the diapers and threw them in the dumpster because it would definitely smell the hall if we put it in the trash out there.
