Carson's Baptism

Brian, Pastor Michael, me and Carson

Papa Ted and Mimi with Carson

The church had a reception after the Baptism and it was really nice. We got to see a bunch of people who have been praying for us. They were with us through it all from Grace to Carson. We are very much blessed and loved by this congregation!!

Grace's angel day

We survived the day! I can't believe that it's been two years since we lost Grace. It seems like yesterday and it feels like we should be planning her funeral. I'm sure people want to know when a parent will "get over it" but really what happens is we learn to "live and deal" with our new life.

I think of all the things we have missed out on and dream of what she would be doing. I'm sure she would be walking, getting into everything and just being a girly girl!! We miss her so much! I know she was with us today because it was so awesome. The weather was great and the balloon release was gorgeous. Brian, Carson and I met Suzanne, April, Corinne, Jill and Jenny out at the statue and did the balloon release. I have met all of these amazing people since we lost Grace and they have been so supportive and listened to me cry. They have also been very supportive of our adoption. The many ups and downs of this year have been very emotional for both Brian and I.

After the balloon release Brian, Carson and I went and had lunch and then we came home and put up the Christmas decorations. Grace has her own Christmas tree and it is on top of the TV console. A butterfly is on top of the tree with all of the decorations that I've made her every year. We make Christmas decorations at our MISS meeting in December and I cherish these dearly. I will post pictures soon!!

Thank you to all who have been there for us!! We couldn't have made it without the love and support from our family and friends!!

We have a thumb sucker!!

Carson had just woke up and this is his "milk face"
He has learned how to suck his thumb and it is always in his mouth.
This is how Carson is a lot of time. He loves to stand and that is when he is the happiest. I keep saying that he is going to walk and skip crawling! I guess we will have to wait and see.
