Well, I'm packing up our apartment as fast as I can because we have to move everything out this weekend. We have until the end of the month, but Cary will be gone all next week on a business trip, so this weekend it is... It's slow going with a toddler. While I pack, he unpacks. :) I tried giving him something to work on, but he likes my projects better. I think we'll get everything done though. We'll be staying with my folks (thank you Mom and Dad!!) for the next month or so until everything is done with the house. The mortgage guy says everything looks good with underwriting, so as long as something doesn't come up, we will hopefully close the 2nd week of September. I'll post when we know for sure. Then it should take 3-4 weeks until we can move in. I'm really excited! :)

Our little rebel

Yesterday, our church had a back to school rally for our community and there were lots of fun things for kids. Carson picked out his own temporary tattoo at one of the booths - a skull and crossbones. Then today, I took him to get his hair cut, and Aunt Natalie gave him a faux hawk once he was done with his trim. Isn't he a cutie? :)

Holy Molar

Carson has recently just cut his 8th tooth. He's been so much happier for the last week or so. Well, today I was getting ready to put Carson down for a nap and he threw his head back with a fit of giggles, and I saw something in his mouth. So I felt around, and low and behold, he has cut his top 2 molars since yesterday, and his bottom right one feels like it will bust through any moment, his bottom eye teeth are also inflamed! Crazy kid! He hasn't even acted like they have been giving him any trouble. This has been one easy week of teething, I must say! :) Oh, so now the grand total of white things sticking out of his gums is 10. That's a mouthful! :)

12 weeks, 4 days

Well, I've received a few requests for belly pictures, so here you go. I'm for sure showing faster with this one. It seems I'm in that fun "is she pregnant, or did she just eat a lot of pasta recently" phase. My waste has definitely thickened quite a bit in the last week or two, but my maternity clothes from Carson are humongous still. My regular jeans don't fit anymore, and I tried just going up a size, but then I just looked ridiculous (they fit in the waist and were humongous and saggy everywhere else), so my mom took me shopping for my birthday (which is Sunday, by the way :)) and I got some really cute maternity things that should fit for a while, and they don't look at all maternity - which is so fantastic. (oh the jeans in this picture are the ones that are the size up so that's why I look a little thick on bottom...oh well :).

I'm for sure showing faster with this the last picture with this one that was taken when I was 19 weeks pregnant with Carson. I guess your body really does have a memory the second time around...

Things with the house are going fine, just waiting to hear about the financing and all....this whole waiting thing is so stressful! But people continue to offer their services --- yay!!! Carson is doing well, he's cut a few more teeth, and is SO busy! We went to the fair today to see one of the girls in our youth group show her sheep for auction, and he was so funny. He was so interested in the animals...from a distance. When she brought her lamb to show Carson he was very interested in it, and then it bleated and he was SO terrified! He tried so hard to get out of his stroller and crawl away, and I was laughing so hard, it took me at least a minute or two to undo his buckle. Poor kid. Oh, another funny thing that happened today...I was giving him a bath and he pooped in the tub, and neither of us realized it at first, then he turned around and saw what was in the water, and he FREAKED OUT! Screaming crying and the whole bit. It was SO funny! Poor baby. At least I know he won't be playing in it any time soon!

We have a walker

Carson started walking a few steps here and there a few weeks ago, and I finally got it on video. He's so proud of himself, it just cracks me up! Ignore my voice - I always forget that I shouldn't talk while video taping because I always regret it....oh well. :)
