We all went over to Nathan and Diane's house last night for supper. When we got there, we were all told to grab a cupcake. And, that is how the gender was going to be revealed. Inside of the cupcake was a little pink star that said "It's a Girl!"
They also handed out little Hershey bars that said "HERESHEIS" and had the estimated arrival date on it. August 17th. That is the BIG day we are all looking forward to so much!
Carson also went to the party with the most appropriate shirt around. "BEST BIG COUSIN EVER" I am sure Carson will show his little cousin a thing or two about how to get in trouble. Ha.
He also enjoyed some blue M&Ms. I guess he was thinking the same as I was....he thought the little one was going to be a boy, too!
We are so thrilled for Uncle Nathan and Aunt DiDi during this exciting time. They are going to make wonderful parents, and soon will experience the world of parenthood.....which, is the best! And, I am excited to spoil this little girl rotten!
In other news.............
Carson likes to try on Daddy's new boots. They are about the size of him, and weigh about as much as him, too!
Carson has also discovered that the tape measure is pretty fun to play with as well. He will pull the tape out, and it retracts back, all by itself...and he thinks that is the coolest thing! His eyes get really big when it happens, and he gets a look of complete amazement on his face.
And this would be a typical morning when Daddy is in charge......Carl will ask: "Carson, you want to eat in the living room, and watch Sports Center, and ESPN? Ok, we can do that buddy!" Carl will then tell me....."Honey, Carson asked to eat breakfast in the living room, and you know me, I just couldn't turn that cute little face down, so I gave in and said yes." Ha. Ok, my dear. Whatever you say! :) Apparently they have this 'Father-Son' talk that a Mom just wouldn't understand. Or, so Carl says.
This, my friends, is our handsome little guy all dressed and ready for church. His cute little bod is enough to make your heart melt. Every. Time.
I will say he does an excellent job, and I am very impressed because of how narrow the railing is. His hands do sometimes get in the way, and knock a few over while he is putting another one up, but he just continues about his way.
Then the 'boy' in him kicks in, and he will shake the railing, and laugh as they all fall down. And, he will then start all over again.
Carson was back at daycare today, and he had a great report. I was so pleased to hear he had a good day! I personally still don't feel as if he is completely back to himself, but we are hoping it will happen soon. It sounds as if the weekend weather should be decent, and I think the fresh air is calling our name. Along with a walk, and the park, and the windows are begging to be opened. Our house is also begging for a fresh breeze to be rolling through it. So, hopefully we will be able to satisfy all of the above!
