Remembering Jillian Ellen

Today is Jillian's 2nd angel day. I met Jenny at a MISS meeting before she lost Jillian. Jillian was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 when Jenny was pregnant. I hate that we met this way but she is a awesome friend. We have a ton of similarities. See below: (I took this from Jenny's blog).

1. Both of our names are Jennifer Nicole
2. We hated Denver when we moved here, I actually went back to TX
3. Both are quilters
4. Last name is Haynes and Mayes
5. Husbands names Ryan and Brian
6. We received the call to adopt Carson on Jillian's due date

Even though Jillian may not be here, she is definitely loved and missed. She will always be remembered. We love you Jillian!!

Park Day

We went to the park today and Carson had a blast. He loves to go on the slide, swing and go up any stairs that he sees. He sometimes gets knocked over by the bigger kids but gets right back up and keeps going. It finally got into the 50's and was a gorgeous day. We are going to definitely go again today!

When I change Carson's diaper his name is on the wall above the changing table. I ask him to spell his name and he will get up and point to the letters as I say each one. I just had to capture it because it is so cute!! He is getting so big!

I put Carson down for his afternoon nap yesterday and then went outside to clean up the backyard. When I came back in after about 30 minutes I thought he was asleep. I sat down on the couch to watch tv and then I heard him talking. I left him in his room for about another 15 minutes and then I heard him jumping up and down. I finally went in to get him and he was all smiles. I am hoping that he is not done with naps!! He normally takes between 2-3 hours and he needs it! I guess I will have to wait and see what happens today.
