I'm handsome

Don't you just love his new outfits!! I love dressing him up. I originally thought only girls were fun to dress but boys are too!!

Carson had a ear infection this week and it was no fun. We went to the doctor on Tuesday when he had a fever of 103. I took him in and sure enough he had a ear infection. He slept okay Tuesday night but Wednesday night he cried the entire night! I was up from 12-6 and I was exhausted. I stayed home with him on Thursday and we went back to the doctor. They gave us some miracle ear drops that numb his ear and he has slept the entire night since. I'm so glad they gave us the drops. I don't know how much more I could last staying up at night.

Uncle Byron is coming next weekend and we are excited. I think we are either going snowmobiling or skiing. We will have to wait and see what he wants to do.

Carson ate spaghetti for the first time the other night and he loved it!! He is eating so much more variety and it's great. His favorite fruit right now is kiwi, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries and bananas. I go to the market to get fresh fruit so he is always trying something new. He is drinking pomegrante juice (mostly water with a splash of juice) and loves his milk!!

He is starting to talk up a storm! He says:

bye bye
good boy
waves bye
hello when the phone rings

I am absolutely in love with this little boy! He has brought so much joy to our lives and I thank God everyday!!

We are still alive!!

Carson loves riding in the wagon. He was spoiled when we were in Texas because Mimi and Papa Ted took him all the time. In the summer, we ride in the wagon everyday.

Carson was making sounds with his mouth in the pictures above. He copies whatever sound his daddy makes.

Brian went hunting with my dad and had a great time.

I am going to be a aunt!!! Byron and Misty gave my mom and dad shirts and surprised us all on Christmas eve! I am so excited and I can't wait.

Carson got cymbals from grandma Mayes and he loves them. He doesn't bang for very long which helps!
Where to begin.... The week of Christmas we had Christmas on Monday night with Brian's parents, Tuesday night just us and we left for Texas on Wednesday at 4:00 am. We went to my grandma's house and stayed until the day after Christmas. Carson had more fun ripping the paper than he did opening the presents. I can't wait until next year when he gets more involved. We went to my mom's house and my aunt Sheila came down and stayed with us for the week. We went shopping everyday and Carson was a trooper! Brian and I got to go on a date night and we saw Blindside. If you haven't seen it, you definitely need to go.

We came home on January 3rd and celebrated Brian's birthday on the 4th. We went to dinner and had a good time. I decided to step down from the Nursing Director Position and be a staff nurse. I am very excited about having a day off a week. I am going to be more of mommy and wife and I can't wait! Carson is only going to be little once and he needs his mommy. My New Year's Resolution this year is to simplify!! I am definitely on my way and look forward to what 2010 has to offer.
