On Memorial Weekend

At our house when it rains it pours. Friday afternoon I received a call from Carson's school stating he was not feeling well and had a temp of 103. Yes, 103. I was at his school within minutes to pick him up. Yup, he is on another course of antibiotics for an infection. My poor boy has been on and off antibiotics for three months. He has a follow up at children's hospital regarding his ear in 2 weeks. However even with medication otc and prescriptions his temperature is hovering around 101.1. Last night he came into our bed around 2am. Carson was all over the bed. I never realized a little 32lb 3 year old could feel like an elephant in the bed. WOW!!
Friday night around 10:00pm we noticed we did not have water. NO WATER! Needless to say 15 hours later and one thousand dollars in the hole we have a new water pump. UH! How do people do it in Guatemala without running water?
Saturday I only left the house to get hay for the horses and take Shauna to Stone Harbor. UH! Usually on Memorial Weekend we are on the boardwalk soaking in the beginning of summer weather at the Jersey Shore :)
Sunday Jonathan went to church as he had to teach children's church. I stayed home with Carson since he was still running a temperature. Later that evening Carson was feeling a little better so we decided to talk a stroll on the Sea Isle Boardwalk. We did not stroll too long since a little boy was getting very whiny.

Adopting again

Jonathan and I have been talking and praying about adopting again. I really want to adopt again from Guatemala however that's going to be a long wait. I have been researching other countries and the wait time because we just got married is two more years before we can apply. Yes, there are other countries which would be quicker however we are lead at this time to the Asian population. If we adopt domestically we could adopt a new born within three months. I am really struggling with what to do. Even though I've been praying I have not been trusting nor listening. I've been doing all the talking and planning. Carson is getting to a great age to have another baby in our home. Hopefully one day soon!

Rainforest and E.N.T.

We took Carson and Shauna to the Rainforest Cafe last weekend. It was Carson's first time. He loved being in the "jungle". As you can see from the below photos he was very happy however he was a little concerned when it was thundering and lightning(every half hour). He was telling the elephant that the storm would be over soon and it will be ok. Carson thought the animals were real. Jonathan and I did not have the heart to tell him differently. When Jonathan was walking Carson around the Cafe Carson did not like the monkeys. He said, keep going Daddy, I do not like him and buried his head into Jonathan's shoulder.

On not such a happy note, Carson's physician is referring him to an E.N.T. Doctor at Children's Hospital in Phila. We can not get his ear to clear from an incident that occurred a month ago. UH- my poor sweet baby boy.

He keeps me laughing

Carson asked last night if he could listen to my "odd-pod".

On the way home from the mall last week Carson said, can we go to tinker bell and get a taco? My stomach hurt so bad from laughing....

Carson- Mommy do you like Barbies?
Me- Yes
Carson- I don't like them. Their hair is gross!

Mommy, can I go to your work and see all the sicken (sick) people?

Mother's Day

As Mother's day quickly approaches my mind is on Carson's Birth Mother. I think of her often however on special occasions she is at the fore front of my mind.

Dear Carson's Birth Mother,
Carson wishes you a very happy day. I would like to thank you for giving me the best gift ever. I am not one to promise however I promise to give Carson the best life, to love him and protect him the best I can. Carson is a very handsome 3 1/2 year old boy. He loves to learn and excels very quickly at what he is taught. Sports are his thing. He is very athletic and wants to be a catcher when he is older because they get to wear a costume (lol). Carson is a little fellow. Currently he is in 24 month pants, size 6 shoe, 2t shirt. We are still working on potty training. Its been a long potty training program at our house. He is very stubborn and has a temper! His eyes are like chocolate. They are big and extremely expressive. His skin is beautiful and his hair grows like a weed. Overall,Carson is a very loving and happy sweet boy. Everyone he meets falls in love with him.

I am sure Renato (Carson) crosses your mind. I can not imagine the thoughts and feelings that linger in your mind. However, please rest assured "our" sweet boy is safe, warm and very loved. If there is any way I could ever repay you for allowing me to raise and love Carson I am willing. My prayer is one day you and Carson will get to meet face to face and have a wonderful relationship. I am sure you will be very proud of him.
Until then may every day be Mother's day to you!

first time and not a fan

What a beautiful weekend! The weather was perfect. We spent most of the weekend outside doing "something". Saturday late afternoon we headed to Wildwood so Carson could enjoy some amusement rides. He is getting so brave. He went on the boats, spin wheel, spook house and the bummer cars. Saturday was the first time Carson went alone on the bumper cars. He want in circles and hit the wall the majority of the ride. It was too stinkin cute.

I have received numerous request and emails about being "friends" on facebook. I am not on facebook and I am not a fan of the product. I am sure there are pro and cons with the services however I have ABSOLUTELY no desire to be on there. So without going on a soap box or giving my personal reasons as to why I do not have a page please feel free to continue reading and commenting on my blog.
