Time flies too quickly as you are raising a child. I am in shock that our little boy is not so little (23 lbs.) and is getting in his big boy teeth. Soon ( 8 weeks away) our little boy will be the big brother as we welcome little boy#2. All of this happened way too quickly. I'm picking out the double stroller, sewing baby blankets, and starting to waddle. All the while Carson is beginning to say more words, crawl better, and navigate me to Target's snack bar so that he can have popcorn. I'm not kidding ---- the boy points and directs me by grunts how to get there as soon as we enter the store. :)
He also has turned into the biggest flirt in town. I told Bob today that he is not allowed to take Carson out without me. The girls flock him. As we were eating our lunch every waitress in the restaurant came over to tell their little buddy, "hello". To which he can now wink and blow kisses. The other night we were out with our Pastor and his wife. As the waitress is clearing the table I notice Carson's hand is pinching her hiney. Of course I'm bright red and embarrassed as I grab his hand and apologize. That's one of those stories I'm going to tell at his wedding and embarrass the socks off him. Payback.
So amid the terrible teething we have had some fun. What a blessing to just stop and realize how special and amazing and wonderful he is. How different he has made life, and how happy we are to be his parents. So happy Friday everyone!!! Congrats on another week completed.
These pictures were taken last week, but made me smile and encouraged me through this week.
