I’m not sure why I haven’t written this week. It’s been a real lazy week so I have no excuse, except laziness. Oh well….. We did our usual Mother goose story time at the library on Tuesday. I must say that I really love this class. I might even like it more than Carson does, or at least it’s a close race. We always sing songs and read a short story while having a snack. It’s so mesmerizing to watch his reaction. I can just see the wheels turning in his brain, if only I knew what he was thinking.
Wednesday, Carson woke up sneezing, congested and had a runny nose. I really needed to run to the grocery store so of course I pick the worst one, Walmart. He did okay until we got to the check out line, by the time we left everyone in the store could tell he wasn’t feeling good. We ended up staying home the rest of the day nursing and snuggling.
Friday, Carson was feeling much better so we kept our play date at the funfactory. I met a couple of other moms from AM and we had so much fun. This is where the title of this post comes in. While playing with Carson in one of the bouncers I had this overwhelming feeling. I was so thankful to be sharing this day with him, making all these fun memories. I have not regretted leaving work to be home with him and I know that I made the right decision. I am so thankful that I get to spend everyday with him, he fills my heart with such love and joy.

Fun weekend

Yesterday we went to the Heart of Dixie railroad museum, where they have the pumpkin patch express. It was great to spend the afternoon with Brandon and Carson. We rode the train out to the pumpkin patch, jumped in the bouncer, took a hayride and picked out a small pumpkin for Carson.

Today I took Carson down to mom and dad’s house. He did his usual, play in the dirt with Dusty, talk to the animals, ride the tractor and polaris. Grandmother D came over and visited with us for a while. I can’t wait until our house get’s built and we can move down there. I find myself dreaming about it alot lately. It will be nice for me and Carson.


I’ve been wanting to do this for a while so today I’m taking the plunge. So much has been going on in our life lately that I don’t even know where to start. We just sold our house after having it on the market in 9 days. We now live in a cramped apartment until our house is built.

Carson is getting soooo big. He is into EVERYTHING, there’s no stopping him. He has learned to say “no” and he’s not afraid to use it. It is fun watching his personality develop. I love how head strong he is, just like me and his dad. I struggle daily with how to parent him. Brandon and I both believe in gentle parenting so figuring out how to get through to a 1 year old is challenging. I feel so blessed to be his mom and get to spend every day with him. I really try to make everyday fun for him.
