Tonight Carson had his first dentist appointment at the new dentist office in Somers Point with Dr. Mark Raab. We were highly impressed with their customer service along with the way staff walked us through each step. Carson was very cooperative and followed the directions with caution as normal. The dentist office had flat screen t.v.'s above every chair showing disney movies, at least 6 video games in the waiting room, an electric train which traveled round the office, toys and little gifts for the kids to pick out after their cleaning. Carson was able to pick out two gifts for being such a good patient ;)

Today is Tracey's birthday. Carson calls her "Best". He is totally in love with her. They have a great relationship and I pray it continues. Best and Carson usually have a date night once every other week however they see each other weekly. Best and Carson frequent the boardwalk, zoo and their favorite of all favorites once a year Monster Truck show in Wildwood. I asked Carson want he wanted me to type to Best for her birthday so here it goes...
Happy Birthday. Thank you for my present. Thanks for the Christmas card. I am going to see the monster trucks crash into cars. Thanks for taking me to the monster trucks. That's it.

I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture.

Tonight Carson was eating lasagna for dinner and he says, "look Mommy there is white ice cream in my pasta". Of course I had to look at what he was talking about. I replied with a laugh, "No Carson that's ricotta cheese".

For the past month or so I have not felt like my peppy self. My energy level has been extremely low, I do not want to do anything, I am very sensitive and I am not sleeping at night. When I do fall asleep, I have had some of the most emotional dreams of my past. My dreams have been so vivid. I either wake up in a panic or crying and the rest of the day I am thinking about my dreams. Why? Is it just the month of September? Knowing the cold weather will be quickly approaching? depression? needing a change? unsettled issues? However, I am very thankful for Jonathan as he is very understanding...
Carson started soccer on Monday. Carson did very well (of course he is Guatemalan). He followed directions and kept his manners. That's big stuff for Carson right now as he wants to give the directions not follow them. UH! He is such a LEADER!!

Today is Carson's Uncle Joey's 29 birthday. We all love Joey very much. We do not get to see him as much as we would like however when he is here we have a blast (sometimes lol). As I have mentioned before Joey is a commerical pilot so needless to say every (I mean every) plane that flies by Carson thinks Joey is flying it.
Dear Joey, We wish you a very Happy Birthday. We love you very much! Carson loves playing with you and furthermore he loves when you push him on the swing. I pray that God gives you a healthy year. We miss you so much and love you even more!

Today we celebrate Carson's 4Th birthday. We had a wonderful birthday prayer for Carson today along with praying for his birth parents. I can not help but to think about how Carson's birth mother is feeling today. I pray the Lord will give her peace and comfort.
Carson, Happy Birthday sweet baby boy. You are growing up so quickly. You are such a blessing to everyone you meet. Your smile and laughter is contageous. You are a quick learner, you love to read, complete puzzles, you want to play every sport, you swim like a fish, and love playing video games. With that being said, Carson, you have a temper that goes from 0-60 in 3 seconds. It's wild! At times you have difficulty controlling your hands and mouth when you get mad. You are working on it and we truly hope its just your age. You are a very determined young boy. You like to do everything yourself. You will only ask for help when you really, really need it.
I pray you have a wonderful year. That you continue to be healthy and strong. I can not wait to watch what the Lord has in store for you this year. I continue to pray for the Lord's guidance with being your Mommy. I know I am not always the best Mommy to you however I love you with every inch of my being. Carson you will never know how much you have changed my life. You are a true gift! I wish you the happiest birthday I love you sweet baby boy!
