Kentucky fun

Yesterday Jonathan, Carson and I had to say goodbye to our new forever Kentucky friends. We met so many wonderful, thoughtful, sweet people in Kentucky. Each person we met through our four day stay we gelled with right away. We can not wait to visit again. Besides that, I must say my sweet little boy was wonderful during the whole trip.

We are leaving on a jet plane..

In less than 24 hours we will be in Kentucky. We are so excited to meet so many wonderful people. However, I am tad bit nervous about keeping Carson entertained on the plane. I will admit, in the past I could not stand to hear a baby cry or a toddler yelling on the plane. Please pray Carson does well on the plane and we have a safe trip.

Carson loves playing in the arcade. His two favorite games so far, skee-ball(my favorite) and race car driving.

Wow, Carson is saying new words weekly. At this time he says the following words:
Taceee (for Tracey)
What's that
Amy (my horses name)
trash truck

My Dear Carson,
You are such an amazing littl boy. I love to hear you talk. Your voice is so sweet. I am so proud to be your Momma.

I love you sweet baby boy!

Baseball and Beep, Beep

Sunday morning Carson woke up yelling Momma, BASEBALL, Momma, BASEBALL. Carson loves to throw, catch, and kick any type of ball. However, my Dad coaches baseball so Carson has been to many of his games, listens to my Dad talk about baseball, and watches baseball on t.v. so needless to say Carson learned the word baseball from my Dad.
Today as I was working around the house, Carson walks beside me and says, Momma, beep, beep. He keeps me smiling.

One year today Carson was placed in my arms.

Today is our forever family day. As I was preparing for the day, my mind was reviewing the events which unfolded the day Carson was placed in my arms.
On June 3, 2008 my sister Tracey and I were getting ready in our Marriott hotel room and my emotions were intense. I was extremely nervous, joyful and excited all at the same time. I remember saying to Tracey, 'I do not think I can do this. Let's forget it and go home'. She laughed and replied "It's too late, Greta Jo." UH! My heart fell to my stomach and I started shaking. She said, "Let's go. We are going to be late." Late to my sister is fifteen minutes before the event takes place. So we proceeded to the lobby, however, once we arrived in the lobby I was too nervous to sit inside. Therefore, we sat outside on the bench giggling and conversing about anything and everything while waiting for Carson. All of a sudden Tracey looks at me with wide eyes and says softly, "Did you bring a picture of Carson with you?" I replied, "No, why?" Her response was priceless, "What if you do not recognize him and what if they switch him for another baby boy?" I laughed and said, "I know what my baby boy looks like." Then, I silently thought to myself, what if? No, they would never, well, maybe, NO, stop it, I have seen enough pictures of Carson to know what he looks like, and I did receive a few update pictures a few days ago. I will know him when I see him. Within 10 minutes of having an argument with myself, a young boy and a tall woman holding a beautiful baby boy started walking towards us. I stood up and said, "There he is, there he is!" Tracey said "Are you sure?" I replied, "Yes, it's Carson." I could not take Carson fast enough from his foster mother. As I was holding Carson for the first time, my heart was so light and I was praising the Lord. Carson's foster mother and I exchanged a few words, shed many tears together, and smiled. June 3, 2007 has changed my life forever. Carson, I love you sweet baby boy!
