What If This Were a Last

I was Busy. "The List" was steadily increasing.
Carson was halfway into his nap and Chelsea was ready to go down. Then...time
Malerie time. Time to eat. Time to put on my make-up. Time to do laundry. Time to work on the budget. Time to blog. Time to catch up on my favorite show. Time to clean the house. Time to knit. Time to read. Time to work on my calling.

"Alright Chelsea, let's put you dowm for your..." Stop. What is that? Crying. Carson?? NO!!!
Way too early for him to be up. And usually he isn't crying.
Put Chelsea in her bed.
Go into his room. Pick my little boy up. He stops crying. Sit down to ask why he's crying but he puts his head on my shoulder. Ok, I can hold him for a sec.

He nestles in. Relaxes. Becomes calm.
He's falling asleep!
Alright, hurry and get into the "sleep mode" so that I can put you back down.
Chelsea has been faintly crying. She could use my help to fall alsleep.
Try to move...whimpers from Carson.
Ok, I'll wait.
Chels getting louder.
Stuck. Do I get up and hope he goes back down (unlikely at this point..he needs longer)... Do I wait and let Chelsea put herself to sleep.... I really need them both to sleep so I can see to that list.... I only have so much time....
Shhh. She's stopped. Good.
Almost get up. Wait.

Realize I'm holding my baby boy. My sweet darling Carson.
Realize he's falling asleep in my arms. His face is peace
Realize I love this moment.
Realize he is getting older.
Realize this may be one of the last times I get to hold my sleeping son.

Carson Life

Here is a photo update of our little boy

We went to the zoo on Memorial Day...he loved it!

Had to get in position when talking to Kellie one day.

I had no idea he had answered the phone and was really talking to her! I thought he was pretending.

It's amazing that he fell asleep while watching Veggie Tales

Just watching a show

This kid is all boy. We love it. He is quite the character and he is loved by all.
