I see "GRADUATION PICTURE" written all over this! Wouldn't you agree?
At least "First Date"
Waiting and waiting and WAITING! Love the little hospital booties!
One last time to hold his little sister. Aaahh such a loving moment! Look how proud and happy he is just to sit and hold her.This is after surgery. Justin trying to wake him up by scaring him with a PUKE bag on his head! No puke included of course! :) He was SUCH a trooper. He didn't cry or throw up during recovery. They said he would be like a little bearcat when he was waking up and this was the position and attitude he kept the whole time! I was completely amazed! I love this little man! He is the easiest sick child we have so far!How many times do you think the surgical clinic has had a child ask to wheel THEMSELVES out to the car after surgery! Like I said, the easiest sick child EVER! The funniest thing he would do is go into our bedroom in the morning and get the tote of movies out from under our bed and get five or six movies out and take them to the living room and pile them on the floor by the couch. Then he would proceed to say, in kindest tone "Boy, wait till Logan sees that I get to just lay here and watch ALL these movies!"
Sidenote: When a child gets their tonsils out, what do they look the most forward to? Endless ice cream, popsicles, soup, pampering! Right!?!
- WRONG! Carson is begging and pleading for lasagna, steak, spaghetti or the very least a JUICY HAMBURGER!
All the things he CANNOT have for at least two weeks. So we proceed to promise that when he is healed he can choose wherever he would like to go and celebrate.
Our suggestion - Golden Corral
After pondering and weighing the options -
His suggestion - Rodizio Grill!
Needless to say, that request is still pending! But he has enjoyed LOTS of the tomato covered pasta, steaks and JUICY Hamburgers!
What a kid!
His friend Ceci brought him a get well gift - Hermit crabs with the WHOLE setup! He got to take care of her hermit crabs while she was gone on vacation. It was love at first sight! So she thought it would make a perfect get well gift! And it did!
Sidenote: They are even still alive! At least four weeks later! Thanks Rita and Ceci!
Now, the big news! Joni started eating rice cereal! I didn't even take a week to contemplate about it! I just found myself mixing pear juice and rice cereal, then trying to get her to eat it before I even realized what I was doing! She is not the biggest fan of it.
Sidenote: Still three weeks later she is still not in love with this kind of food!
Still just loves the plain 'ol milk!
How can you NOT spoil this adorableness! Logan and Carson, standing around waiting for their names to be called next! It was a hot day!
As I look at this picture, I am still trying to figure out if Carson is trying to cheat during the halter class horse show. Can you cheat by looking under your brothers horse at the next horse to see if you set yours up correctly? What IS he looking at? Or does he just have to go to the bathroom? Maybe he was looking for the judge? Who knows about our little donkey in his own Carson world!
