My New Chair.

Today, Carsen received a gift from his friend Kennedy.  He is having a blast in it. Or at least I'm having fun taking his pictures. Go figure. He such a fun model. Take a look... Oh and I promise I did not match his outfit to his chair. It just worked out that way.

Hmm... Where should I put it?

Under the bar?...

In the kitchen? I can't quite see in here.

Awe... Right here is perfect!

"America's Next Top Toddler Model" 

Are you watching me Mama? 

This is my chair... stay off! 

Thanks Kennedy! My chair rocks!  Shout out to your mom, Melissa too. She has good taste. I can't wait to hang with you in 2 weeks. I might have a little surprise for you too. My mom says I need to keep it a secret.  See ya!

The Many Faces of Carsen

So today is Father's day and well... Carsen and I decided to have a photo shoot to cheer me up. I'm amazed everyday how much he is changing. We had so much fun hanging out today.  I never get pictures of him looking at the camera. Not to mention a smile on camera. He had the giggles and couldn't stop laughing. I took full advantage of it. 

Happy Father's Day to my sweetheart Travis. You're the BEST dad and husband EVER!!! I love you!!!

Carsen's 1st Year Stats

Carsen is learning the word "No".  He just started doing this head thing.  I don't think he really knows what it means except when I'm trying to get him to eat something he doesn't want.  

This video was before we went to his Dr's appointment. Check it out.

As usual the  Dr. office was awful. I hate taking him to get his shots. Travis always goes with me.  Him and Carsen are inseparable. They are "best buds".  But to top it all off Carsen  had to get his finger poked too. Not fun!  At this  appointment I was really emotional for some reason. I started crying before they even gave him a shot. Crazy. Travis kept telling them that I was OK just pregnant. 

Well here are his stats for the 1 year appointment...

Weight 21 lbs  42%
Length 31 inches 85%
Head 18 2/3 70%

He's healthy and crazy as ever. We are very blessed. 

As you know we have two babies Carsen and Mico Tico Taco. They have a love/hate relationship.  Mico is constantly fighting for Daddy's attention. This was last night when Travis came home for work. Carsen sees what's happening and wants in on the affection.  It's so cute watching them fight over him. Mico will not give up his spot...

Mico takes his spot...

Oh... I guess I'll share but I'm not happy about it!!!

Carsen Dancing

Oh my goodness. Can I just say how much Carsen LOVES to dance. It's the cutest thing ever. We just noticed one day that every time any music came on he started to bounce. I guess he gets this from watching me. LOL!  This video was taken in Travis' parents hotel room at Tylers graduation.  They had the radio on and he started bouncing. I had to record it.

Happy 1st Birthday Carsen!

Well the day has arrived that my baby has officially turned 1.  Carsen has gone through so many changes over the last few weeks.  He is now taking more steps. I wouldn't say he's walking but getting real close.  So much chatter. Sometimes I think he's really saying things... like he's answering me. He has officially said Ma Ma!!! YEA! It only took Travis leaving the country to get him to say it. But it's so cute. Now I know how Travis has been feeling this whole time.  Another thing he is doing lately is dancing. Anytime any music comes on he starts to bounce.  I'll post a video of him doing this later.   

Here are a some of my favorite pictures from the last week. Enjoy!

Carsen preparing for his party. Loly pops make this a lot easier.  This was his first one. 

Always has to share.... I love this about him!

As you can tell my theme was "little prince" even though he's a "little monster".

Mom, Mary and I spent all week preparing favors and decor for the party. All the kids had personalized crowns to wear for party hats. It was super cute.

Ok... I may have gone a little overboard with decor but couldn't help it. He had to have a banner!

I can't believe all the compliments we got on this cake.   I think it was the hit of the party. My mom made this cake... not a bakery. She has made all of our birthday cakes over the last 42 years. She's had a little practice. Thanks Mom!

Carsen wasn't that into the cake. Mainly because it was nap time. 

Here we go sharing again... :-)

Yea.... a smile from the Birthday boy!

He loved the balloons. They were all over the house.

Yes... Carsen is sitting on top of the presents. LOL! 

Carsen and his AWESOME Grandparents! One smiling from Heaven.

He wasn't too interested in opening presents but he LOVED playing with the strings.

It took us 2 days to open all of his presents. You can only imagine. He loved everything he got. My living room now looks like Toys R Us.  Thank you to everyone who helped, traveled, and participated in making Carsen's 1st Birthday so special. It will be a day that will be cherished in my heart forever....
