Carson turns 1

O.k, so he has been 1 for almost a month, but I am just now getting around to posting! We celebrated His birthday with Grace's, who turned 3 two days before he turned 1, at the park with some family and friends. Here are some photo's of him enjoying a cupcake for the first time with Grace. He absolutely loved it!

Carson is such a sweet boy. Right now he has taken a break from talking (he said some words before he started walking and now says "mum" only) and is practicing kicking a ball, working on his throw-ins, and playing with cars. He also continues to be our curious kid. Yesterday I found him in the bathroom and he had thrown one of his sisters bracelets in the toilets! And he is the only average kid we have, 50% in everything, sorry Grace. Praise God for the blessing of having him in our lives.

Just a funny little story that you other moms might enjoy, and may help you feel a little better about your own parenting!
As you know Sunday was Mother's Day and we went to the park after church with my family. However, before church Cait had been coughing a lot from allergies so I decided to give her some cough and cold medicine to see if it helped. Well it did not work very well. On the way from church to our house Cait fell asleep, kind of unusual for her, but we did just get back from vacation. Then at the park she took a nap on a blanket instead of playing! This is definitely not my child!!! When she woke up she was very happy and her normal talkative self. So that night we decided to give the cough medicine another try. That is when Tim pointed out I had give her nyquil! To quote a friend "I am that Mom!"
Happy Mothers Day! (Am I still qualified to be a mom?)
