Our big boy!

Carson is growing so much!  He's got sweet rolls all over the place, and I can't stop kissing those precious cheeks!  He skipped the newborn clothes and went straight into 0-3 months.  Those are too tight now and has to wear 3-6 month onesies or 6 months clothes.  His weight gain also means that he sleeps longer! YAY! The car seat is getting to be a bear to tote though.  I think people feel sorry for me when I am straining hobbling along in the parking lot. People have stopped and asked if I need help.  I am thankful for the generosity of the other Smithfieldians, but I know I just look pitiful.  That is why  I started doing P90X (but mostly so I can hopefully fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes before winter!).  Here are a couple pictures to show how much Carson has grown over the last few weeks!

He loves walking around like that with Dad.  Another 6 month outfit a sweet friend of Jeff's sent. (4.5 wks)

Roll out! Chubby but content baby! Carson at 6 weeks

Happy 80th Birthday Grandma!

This past weekend, we drove two hours to South Hill for Jeff's Grandma's surprise 80th birthday party!  She and Papa were very surprised!  Everyone was there including her brothers and sisters.  Grandma is just the sweetest and reminds me so much of my Gammy:)  Carson, our six week old, did amazingly! Because he eats about every two hours, we had to do some creative planning. (Thanks Adele!) Everyone wanted to get a piece of our little big man.  He did so well meeting all of his extended family!  Here are some pictures from the party taken by Aunt Carrie:)
