Look Mommy!!

This is Carson's new face that he is doing. It is hilarious!! He breaths really hard through his nose and makes a funny sound. Brian can do it back to him and they go back and forth. One night they did it for an hour. His personality is just so dang cute!

Guess what else he is doing---sleeping in his own crib in his bedroom. I got sick this week and he stayed with my in-laws for two nights. The first night he slept from 10-7:30 and didn't take a bottle. He normally gets up every 2 hours and eats 4 ounces. So, when he came home he went straight to his crib to sleep!! I was so excited. I loved having him sleep with us but I now know that he wasn't sleeping that good. He slept last night from 9:30-8:30 this morning and only got up once. He was only awake for about 5 minutes and was fussing. He is on a good routine now that he is sleeping in his crib. He gets up between 7:30-8 most mornings and goes down for a 3 hour nap at 11. He probably could have gone to his crib sooner but I just wasn't ready to let him go!!

Mimi left today

My mom has been here for the last 6 days and I always hate when she leaves. I have lived here for 6 years and it doesn't seem to be getting any easier. On top of that, I am sick and feel awful!!! These are a few pictures that we took over the last few days with mimi.

New adventure

I got this crazy idea that I needed to make Carson's baby food homemade. I thought that it was going to be hard and time consuming but actually it was really easy and fast. I made sweet potatoes tonight and tomorrow I'm going to make carrots.

I cooked the sweet potatoes in the oven and then let them cool. After that I skinned the potatoes and mashed them in a bowl. I then pureed them and got them to the consistency that I wanted. I used formula and a tiny bit of water. After that I poured them into the ice trays and they are in the freezer. Tomorrow I will pop them out of the ice trays and put them in labeled baggies and they are ready to eat!! I hope he likes it! The 2 potatoes made 2 ice cube trays full and he is only eating about 1 ice cube size right now. He is still preferring his formula but we are trying to get him to eat more. He was only doing about 1-5 spoonfuls but now he eats about 1/2 a container of food.

I will keep you updated on how everything goes and what other kinds of food I try to make.

Happy New Year

I can't believe that it is already 2009!! This has definitely been an exciting year and I hope that 2009 is just as good to us. The outfit that Carson is in is for Papa Ted (my dad). We got it at Cracker Barrel when we were in Texas. My mom, brother and his girlfriend are coming up in 2 weeks and Brian and I are excited to see them. We are going to go snowmobiling in the mountains and show them around Denver.
