Tuesday, April 26, 2011


Have you ever tried to work in areas where you struggle?
Are you strong enough to admit you struggle? I am...

I struggle at being a good wife.
I struggle at being a parent (Mom).
I struggle with not tell people how I really feel.
I struggle with letting go of someone who really hurt me.
I struggle with allowing people to fully enter into my life.
I struggle with guarding my heart.
I struggle with two face people...
I struggle with being a christian at times.
I struggle with understanding why people have to hurt others to get what they want...
I struggle with people who "think" they know me however they do not even have a clue.
I struggle with people who try to buy my love or friendship.
I struggle with fake people.
I struggle everyday... I thank God everyday for helping me through my struggles...

37 days to go...

I think my heart just skipped 20 beats.... My emotions are like the weather forecast. Every day they are completely different. I am very excited about the arrival of the baby however extremely nervous and full of anxiety. Currently the baby weights 4lbs 12 ozs and is doing great! Carson loves to touch and kiss my belly. We still have not picked out the car seat and stroller. We are hoping to purchase a the combo set this week(if I can decide on the color and brand,LoL.)

Carson's post to Best..

The below is directly from Carson's mouth...

Thanks for taking me out today. I had fun with the barbie song and playing with your friend Alicia. I can not believe I got a chocolate bunny. Mommy can I have some more of the bunny? Bye Best I love you more...

An outing with Best

Carson spent the afternoon with Best (my sister). They went to the local recreation Easter egg hunt where Carson won a chocolate bunny and collected a handful of plastic eggs. Then off to the county park to visit the animals and play on the playground. Carson absolutly LOVES his Best- I pray Carson and Best relationship continues to grow. They sure do have a very special connection. Thank you Best!

Life has gone on...

I still think of you..
I wonder where you are....
I wonder what you are doing...
Do you ever think of us....
Have you ever wanted to meet Carson...
Have you ever wanted to send an email or a letter...
Have you ever wanted to rewind times....
Have you ever wanted to do it over again....

block patch test

On Saturday Carson received his second patch in karate. The second patch is called the block patch. Carson had to learn and demonstrate four different blocks without assistance. He did great on the first try!

do you really know me...

If you really want to get to know someone you need to:
ask questions
spend quality time
have special dates with that person
be there
call them out of the blue
tell them you care
do not judge them
do not brag about yourself
drop a card in the mail

A pregnant photo finally...

WOW! Is that really me? Yup, it's me at 31 weeks pregnant and off to work.

31 weeks tomorrow...

This week, your baby measures over 16 inches long. He weighs about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and is heading into a growth spurt. He can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin. He's probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby's kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy.
Carson is so excited for the baby to arrive. He was talking about the baby sitting next to him at the dinner table. :) He is going to be an awesome big brother!
