*I'm starting with the best one -- Carson is speaking! A month ago, he was repeating sounds, numbers and songs. All of his words came from memory and none of them were intentional. What a difference a month makes. He loves to say "no-no" if he doesn't get his way and of course he says "ut oh" and "oh no." He says, "Momma - love you" all the time which makes me melt. Every time he sees me he says, "Hi Momma." Some other new words are: tickle, cow, corn, chicken, train, night-night and YAY! He says "yay" for everything. After he sings his ABC's he screams, "yay!" in celebration. He is so proud of himself and so are we! He also knows his shapes and says, "circle, oval, square, rectangle."
*Fall weather - we are enjoying this Indian Summer and taking full advantage of it. We go outside everyday and love spending time at the park.
*Music - Muse, Ray LaMontagne and Bruno Mars.
*P90X - not sure if this should be in the "happies" section but I am thrilled that we have decided to do P90x as a couple. We are in the middle of week 2 and it is quite a workout. Nathan is pushing me and I am holding him accountable...and we are laughing a lot! To be a fly on the wall...
Let me just say there are results already! We are excited to see where we are at in December. Just in time for the holidays, of course.
*Alex - what a precious phase. Tonight at dinner her prayer was, "Jesus, thank you for being in my heart. Please stay in my heart forever. You are sooo handsome."
