The things people say

Carson got these burp rags from a friend of mine who I work and quilt with. They are liked by a ton of people and someone from my mom's work wants to make some for her grandchild. So, the following pictures are for show and tell!! Thanks-Wendy

Okay- for the dumb comments. Brian had to go get his blood drawn yesterday at the VA and he took Carson. In case you don't know, Brian has Carson two days a week and Brian's mom watches him three days. We are so lucky to not have to put him in daycare. It makes it much easier for me to go to work. Back to dumb comments- The lady said to Brian, "So, you are babysitting?" Brian said no that he is his baby. The next thought is- oh, your wife is African American? I get the same comment all the time if Brian is not with me. Or, they will say what a cute bi-racial baby and I have to correct them and say that he is ours!! Some people are closed minded!!

Remembering Grace

Today we had The Walk to Remember at Clement Park in Colorado. As most of you know we lost Grace in 2006 and I'm apart of a group of bereaved parents who help raise funds to give bereavement packages to hospitals. This is something very dear to me! I am so thankful that we received a package when we lost Grace. The information and support was amazing. I have made some awesome friends who are friends for life in this circle. It sucks that this is where you meet some of your best friends but they are awesome and so supportive.

My mom, Brian, April, Kim and I participated in the walk this year. April and her family have been so amazing in the support that they have given Brian and I. We are very thankful to have them in our lives. They love Carson just as much and his Auntie April can't get enough of him!!

Here are some pictures from today. We did a balloon release and it was breathless. Enjoy!!

Bella came home today!!

Bella doesn't like to sit next to Carson. She is much happier if she is at the other end of the couch.
I love his smile!
He was looking at his furry brother and sister.
My two furry four legged dog children. Just to get them to sit together was a task!
