Sandra Bullock's statement

"You know, I have always felt like, just because a child didn't come from inside your body doesn't mean it's not your child, it just arrived somewhere else...There are so many children just waiting who need love and to give you love back a thousand times more and they're everywhere...You would be profoundly amazed at how many children are out there just waiting for you to love them."

I wish everyone felt this way...

A broken foot

Carson's Uncle Joey broke his foot the other day. He is having surgery on Friday in Virginia. The surgeons will be placing a screw in his foot. So needless to say he will be out of work for a few months. We are praying for a quick and healthy healing.

Back up plan and costume

Saturday night Jonathan and I went to see Back up plan starring Jennifer Lopez. The movie emulated my life (No I was not inseminated but I adopted a baby being single). I really think the writer knew my life story as he was writing the movie. Without going into detail however in the movie Jennifer had twin red head girls. Its a must see chick flick!!!

Its baseball season so we are at the baseball field watching my Dad's team at least once a week. Last week Carson told us that he wants to be a catcher because he would get to wear a costume. So now he is calling his baseball glove his catcher. He has two more years left until he gets to play T Ball. UH!

Is that thunder?

Tonight Carson yells from his bedroom, "Mommy, is that thunder?" I replied, No, its an airplane. There was silence for a minute than he yells with excitement Mommy, Its Uncle Joey, I hear him. Hi Uncle Joey, be careful up there.
Carson loves his Uncle Joey!

So comfortable with PopPop

Another week of treatment

Carson had another follow up visit with the physician today regarding his ear. The physician was not completely happy with the healing progress. So needless to say, Carson will be on treatment for another week. Carson told the physician his ear is still bothering him ( he was talking to her like a little old man).
I pray there is no long term damage.

The first time I met Carson I told my parents he was an old soul. The older he gets the more his old soul comes out.

A what?

Perforated Eardrum!! That's right the physician said, Carson has a perforated eardrum. Wow! He was in tremendous pain until he received pain medication. Now, he is high off of the medication and has gross, crusty, thick mucus coming from his ear non-stop. I have no idea how this happened....

The conversations we are having...

I can not believe the type of conversations we are having at my home now with Carson. The other day Carson told us one of his "girlfriends" told him, if he did not play with her, he could not come to her party. Carson replied to the girlfriend, Ok, bye and walked away from her.

The next day, he told us Jesus died on the cross for him. When we asked how he knew that, he replied my friend Justin told me at school.
Then he proceeded to tell us about the nails that were put into Jesus hands. Wow, that was a deep conversation.

Thursday night we were driving home from the horse stable and Carson leans his hand out the window and says, God where are you? Tears filled my eyes faster than I could blink.

Oh how I wish he would keep his innocence.

Easter 2010

We had a very blessed Easter. The weather was great and spending time with family was even better. I love having my family over and sitting around the table talking and laughing. Sure, there are times where a comment or two is made that are off color however we have learned to roll with it. Nothing is ever said to be hurtful... Saturday evening we had our traditional English muffin pizza's and dyed Easter eggs. Sunday we went to church and then the family Easter egg hunt. My prankster Dad pulled a belated April fools joke and had us looking for eggs in a spot where they were NOT hidden. This year's golden egg winner was first time egg hunter, Shauna.
After the egg hunt we went to the Wildwood boardwalk and rode the rides.
Overall we had a wonderful day.
