Bahamas, Monday & Tuesday

Hey everyone! We have internet in our room, so I'm able to update. :)

We've been having so much fun here and we've spent lots of time in the pool and on the beach. Carson loves the pool and the sand, but is scared to death of the waves. :) I keep trying to take him just to the ocean's edge, but he is just so scared, it's really funny! He watches the waves as they go out and come in, but as soon as they get close to us, he turns away, hugs my neck really tightly and wimpers. :) It's really sweet. Today, I carried him out into the ocean before he realized what we were doing, and once he got used to the waters' temparature, he seemed to like it quite a bit. He hasn't tried to eat the sand too much, thankfully. We've also had some really good food thanks to the suggestions of the people Cary is working with. Last night we had a seafood feast at this restaurant called The Stone Crab. It's on the beach and we ate outside on the patio, and the food was SO good! Our feast had lobster, shrimp scampi, crab legs, conch bites, and potatoes. YUM! And then tonight we went to this fish fry that was right in the sand. Oh! And for lunch yesterday I had fried conch, which is really good - kind of like lobster meat, so if you like lobster and you ever get a chance to try it...DO! :) Anyway, we've been having a great time enjoying the sun and the oh so good food! :) I have lots of pictures to show you all, but I forgot to bring the adapter so that I could upload them. Oh well, I'll have to have a Bahamas picture post when I get back! :)

This just in...

A tooth!


This morning on the way to church, I noticed a tiny dot of blood on Carson's lip. I couldn't figure out how he had hurt himself and couldn't find the source of the blood. Then a few minutes after we got to church it donned on me that he's been working on his top teeth for a while. I felt his top gums, and sure enough! His first top front tooth has popped through! Yay for Carson! I'm sure the next one isn't far behind. I'll post pictures as soon as there is more than a white line to see! :)

8 Months Old

Happy 8 months, Carson James!! You are getting so big!

He's learned all sorts of new things lately, and is now a pro at the army crawl. He still gets up and rocks back and forth, but that tends to send him backwards instead of forwards. He's also trying to pull himself up on the furniture, and is about half-way successful before he gets too frustrated. But if we prop him up, he'll stand there for several minutes.

He LOVES fruit baby food, and is still eating like a champ. He's also discovered that the bumper pad of his crib moves and there are slats behind it! Every morning when he hears me come in his room, he pulls down the pad and looks through the bars and gets SO excited.

He had his first taste of twizzlers - thanks to daddy - and my parents dog, Kai, had a taste too - gross!

He's also taken a ride down his very first slide with Poppi (my dad) at Trail Dust the other night - it didn't even phase him. He's such a stud! :)

These are the excitement of our days lately, and he is doing so much to make us laugh. Oh, his hair is also getting curly in the back, so I'll post pictures of that soon.

I just can't get enough of this kid! :)

Fun Website

Go here


You upload a photo and it measures your features to tell you which celebs you resemble. It's fun! I uploaded a few different ones and it says that I look 70ish% like Jennifer Aniston, Shania Twain, Courtney Cox, and Penelope Cruz. Cary looks 60% like Michael J. Fox and George W. Let me know who you all look like :)

1 week, 3 days and counting

Needless to say, I am still very excited about our upcoming trip. I want to start packing now! :)

In all of my excitement, I have been pulling out all of my summer clothes from several years ago, and to my amazement, very few things don't fit, and some are even too big! Woo-hoo! And although, I may not look as good as I used to, and although my skin is not nearly as tight and smooth as it once was, I am feeling suprisingly comfortable in my own skin. I've never really delt with major body issues, and I've always been thankful for that, but I am really surprised that after having a baby, I feel even better about myself now than I did before. Maybe things are just in a better perspective for me, or maybe after being hugely pregnant anything smaller is good, but whatever the case, this is most definitely a nice post-side-effect of pregnancy.

WOO-HOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Cary has to go to Freeport, Bahamas for business in a few weeks, and Carson and I get to go with him!!!!!!!!!! Oh my gosh! I am so excited I can hardly stand it!!! We will be there for 5 days and 4 nights! We are staying right on the beach and right by the duty-free market! SO EXCITING!! So while Cary is working, Carson and I will be hanging out at the market and on the beach, and then when he gets done at 4 or so, we can check out the sites of the town. How fun is that!! AND, we're using airline miles to get Carson and I there, so we only had to pay the taxes portion of my ticket! WOOOOOOO-----HOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Oh, and on a even brighter note, the shorts that I wore on our honeymoon......they FIT!!!! What a fantastic day!
