So I don't know how else to say it except that my heart is just overflowing with love and happiness with Carson around. He is so pleasant all the time, and Richard and I are enjoying this stage so so much. It's the best so far. Carson laughs all the time and is always so smiley and giggling and excited about everything. He really is the cutest thing I have ever seen and I just want to hug him and kiss him all day long. Unfortunately he is an active little guy and would rather pull at my necklace and twist and turn to see everything else. :-)
Richard and I enjoy him so so much right now. We love having him with us and miss him when we have to put him to bed. Every night as we go to bed we walk into his room to "check" on him and marvel at how cute he is. We wish he could sleep with us. :-) Despite his poor napping skills he is just a pleasant fellow and always willing to smile or laugh and loves our attention so much. The age right now is perfect, he is just starting to crawl which makes him so happy to be able to reach things he can see far away, but he isn't very mobile, his schedule is perfect, he sleeps at night wonderfully, and is eating great.
Being a mother has been the best thing, and sometimes I wonder if I'm starting to like to be home more than out. (Usually I am a social person and am dying to talk to people every day). But lately I think I just like to stay at home and keep Carson on schedule, and enjoy his smiles at home in our cozy place. Plus there always seems to be something I can do now, and I'm never bored. :-)
I endeavored on the task of making baby food this weekend. It wasn't too hard except that I didn't really know what I was doing and have a small food processor that requires doing a lot of small batches. But I feel proud of myself and hope to keep doing it, I think it will just get easier as I keep doing it.
