It's Been TOO Long!

Disco Baby!

Carson dancing it up at the reception!

Carson and his sweet cousin that is only ten days younger than him think he had a bit of a crush!

Me and Russell

So a lot has happened since I last was on here and I can't believe how bad I've been. I just completely forgot about my blog for a long while! Anyways since my last update we have moved into a town home in Lenexa which we are happy about, we had a family reunion on my mom's side along with my sister Stacey's wedding the end of June, I've been working at the dentist office that I used to work at before I had Carson but will be done with that next week, I've decided to go back to college to finish my degree so I will be starting that online in a couple weeks, my sister-in-law got married mid August and my husband almost got kicked out of Chiropractic college because one professor was a huge jerk. I think that about sums it up. So it's been an interesting summer in case you can't tell! I've attach a few recent pictures from my sister-in-law's wedding above to show you how grown up Carson has gotten. He's such a fun age right now!
Oh yeah and one more thing I have started this google adsense thing to try and make some money so you will notice that my page now has a search engine sponsored by google. From my understanding of this thing I'm doing if people use my search engine to look at anything and click on ads posted by google at the top of the page ( you don't have to buy just click and get out) I make a little bit of money off of it so feel free to use it because heaven knows I need the mula! Oh yeah and one more thing if you could spread the word to people about the search engine it would really help me out. All they need to do to use it is my web address Thanks guys!

Cute Jammies!

I love these pictures of Carson in his bright colorful pajamas. I bought them for him like 5 months ago because they are for 12-18 months (Carson is almost 15 months) but they are still way too big for him, he's just a little guy! The pictures say it all!

New Soccer Chair

This past week Russ went to Nebraska Furniture Mart to kill time while his car was getting repaired and found a cute little soccer chair. He called me and told me about it but I didn't know what it looked like. It also was pretty expensive but we think it will be a good purchase for a long time to come because it's sturdy. Here are some pictures of Carson relaxing in his chair.

Fun at the Park

I was trying to act excited for having our picture taken so Carson would smile for it but it didn't work out so well. I just look like a doofus instead!

Yesterday was a really nice day here in Kansas City so Russ, Carson and I decided to take advantage of the weather and go to the park. It was really fun. Russ brought along his soccer ball and Carson just started playing with it like a little pro!

Carson and Koda

These are pictures of Carson and my in-laws dog Koda. Carson loves Koda, whenever he sees him he makes really high pitched arf sounds and says doggie. It's so cute!

Daddy and Carson

I love this picture! Carson and I woke up earlier one morning and after playing awhile we decided to wake up Russ so I put Carson on the bed and all he wanted to do was lay down next to him. It was so precious! He stayed there laying with him for about 15 minutes and to a baby like Carson who is always on the go that is a long time!

Finally an Update

We haven't had to0 much of anything interesting going on lately so I haven't been putting up any new posts. Just a few things are going on around here, Russ started the doctor program for Chiropractic in January so that has been keeping him pretty busy and we're having to get used to not having him around as much. The hard part too is that when he is home a lot of times he's unavailable to us because he's busy doing schoolwork. He really is excited about it all and so far he's done pretty well on all of his tests so I'm very happy about that.
Carson has been learning so much and changing from a baby to a little toddler more and more every day. It's hard to watch them grow up and wonder where the time went. He has recently started saying lots of different words such as papa, doggie, done, night night, bye-bye and many others I can't think of right now. He also signs a lot of different things because Grandma Birdsall bought all the signing time videos so he likes to watch those while he eats. It's great to be able to communicate with him. Unfortunately, Carson has gone through a couple spouts of sickness this year already and both lasted longer then I would like and have seemed to make a huge difference in his weight. He's pretty scrawny now but I'm trying to fatten him up. He still nurses, (not to my desire) and loves it. He's always signing milk but I try to distract him with other foods so that I can someday stop NURSING!
As for me, not a whole lot of change has gone on with me. I'm still trying to lose that lovely baby weight but it's a lot harder than you'd think when you still have to worry about eating to have milk. I have recently taken up a love for the stairmaster which hopefully will start to make some big changes in my body. My dream is to get to my ideal weight before I get pregnant again and depending on how long that takes is how long we'll have to wait. Other than that, I'm still keeping busy with my church callings, (nursery chorister and visiting teaching supervisor) and looking forward to spring coming so that Carson and I can spend a lot of time outdoors playing. Russell and I both are looking forward to May because that is when we will be moving into the townhome. It will be nice to be in our own place again, get organized, and have all of our own stuff! I think that's it for us for now. I hope that all is going well with all of you and hope to hear from you!
