Go Broncos!

Carson's first Christmas, First Feeding and fun pictures

This picture makes me laugh because I was pushing the sounds on the book and his eyes were huge!!
This is his first feeding and he ate sweet potatoes. He was not sure what to think but then I couldn't get them in fast enough before he started getting mad. We have since purchased a high chair and he enjoys eating. We had to buy the high chair because he can almost get out of the bumbo seat.
This picture is from today and he was a happy boy. We had just got back from taking the dogs on a walk. Let me just say- it was a fast one because it was just me, the dogs and Carson. My dogs are not the best on leashes and we were the ones being walked- not the dogs!!

National Grief Week

This is National Grief week and I would like for everyone to remember all who are not here with us now. I miss Grace everyday and think about her every minute of the day. I so wish she were here to play with Carson and fight with each other. It is so hard to lose a child because it just never gets easier. I will always have apart of my heart missing. The poem below is something that I got from one of my MISS mommies.

You can shed tears that she is gone,
Or you can smile because she lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her,
Or you can be full of the love that you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her and only that she is gone,
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what she would want.
Smile, open your eyes, love and go on

~David Harkins

I really love this poem because Grace has made a huge impact in my life. I truly feel that I am a better person because of her.

Santa Claus

We took Carson this afternoon to see Santa and he was very good! He smiled and talked for us and he was such a happy baby.

What a week!

I wrecked my car this week. I'm fine but I have to put it in the shop tomorrow and it will be there all week. I was taking the dogs to go play on my way to work and I slid on some ice and down in the ditch we went! I hit a stop sign and dented the right side. They have to replace the right side panel and fender and repaint the right side of the car. I'm just thankful that we were not hurt!!

Enjoy all the pictures of Carson. He is getting so big!! He loves to jump in his jumparoo and screams when he does it! He also can roll over from his stomach to his back. I will update more about his progress on the 17th when he turns 4 months old! I can't believe how fast he is growing!!

PS- The picture with Carson and his hat on is one of my favorites! We had just got home from the grocery store and it was snowing outside with the temperature at 4 degrees! It's freezing up here!!!
