Birthday Pics!!!!


So it has been a long time since I've posted anything on our blog...I blame it on not having a computer or internet at our house. That makes it a bit tricky.

Well, lets see...since our last post Carson has learned to scoot, crawl, stand, walk, eat big boy food, has 6 teeth and 2 molars coming in, and so many other things that would take too long to list. The three of us got in an car accident on September 1st and totalled our car. We just had some bumps and bruises and were pretty shaken up, but otherwise really lucky. We got an 05' Chevy Trail Blazer to replace the car. We like it's bigness and think of it as our "family car".

Carson has lots of fun with Grandma DeAnne watching him 2 days a week and with Alta, who runs a daycare out of her house, (she has some openings right now if anyone is looking for a great daycare) 3 days a week. Adam and I are both still working full time and are enjoying our jobs.

On September 25th we went to the Hogle Zoo for Carson's birthday. We had tons of fun watching Carson discover the different animals for the first time. We watched a little show with the elephants and he loved watching baby Zuri use her trunk and eat bread given to her by the zookeepers. A couple days later we had cake and ice cream. I made Cars a little baseball cake of his own to eat and destroy---he didn't react quite the way I thought he would. lol. He immediately stuck his hands in and then wouldn't touch it again. I don't think he liked his hands being messy, so I ended up feeding it to him. Thank you to every one who came to the Zoo and to the party and thanks for the gifts too, he loves them!!!

Hey. Just wanted to give an update since its been a while.

Carson is now 4 1/2 months old. He is getting pro at grabbing anything he can get his hands on and it goes right to his mouth. He loves bouncing whether you are holding him or he is in his bouncer. He rolled over for the first time this last week, from his tummy to his back. I think he took himself by surprise because his eyes got really big when he realized what had happened:) We also recently started feeding him rice cereal. He wasn't quite sure what to do with it at first, but now we can't shovel it in his mouth fast enough. :)

Adam and I are still working at the same places. We just got a new 37" LCD tv with our tax refund. I never really paid attention to the difference between different tvs and the different qualities, but I can sure see the difference now. Its fun.

Well that's all for now.

Happy Boy

Getting ready for Christmas!!!

Here is Carson wearing the Santa outfit Grandma Dallof bought for him:)
At Carson's last appointment he weighed 12 pounds!! He is growing so fast! He has the sweetest personality and it develops more every day. He is still sleeping through the night (thank goodness) and through much of the day lately too.
We are so excited for his first Christmas. Its funny how the season seems more meaningful with him around. Every time I hear someone talk about baby Jesus I feel so thankful for my baby boy and wonder how Mary must have felt holding her little child who she knew was divine. I love this season and couldn't be happier to spend it with Adam and our new addition:)

Adam's Project

Well this has been my recent project. I have been wanting to make something for a while, but couldn't think of anything. I was online the other day and saw these plans to make a poker table. I really wanted to make it so I put my own spin on it and off I went. This is not complete yet, but the last picture is what it will look like kind of. There will be a "racetrack" around the blue playing surface and then the base will fold up for storage. It has been fun to make and I can't wait to have a poker night with it!

Prego Pic

Well, I finally got a picture of my prego belly. I know I feel like I am huge, but some people say I'm still small. Today I am 32 weeks and 4 days (but who's counting, right?). I've been wearing Adam's clothes now for about a month cuz none of mine fit:)
We still haven't decided on a name. We both liked Boston for a while and then Adam started leaning towards Caleb. Now I just think we are waiting to see him before we decide for sure.

Baby moves around a lot and keeps me on my toes. Actually he keeps me laying down because he's in my ribs a lot and when that starts to ache laying down is the only thing that relieves it:) Also I've been one of those lucky ladies that has developed gestational diabetes so I get to control that with changing my diet. I basically just have to count carbs, but its hard to get used to. There's only so many cucumbers and lettuce (both have 0 carbs) a girl can handle. :) Oh and I get to prick my fingers 4 times a day to check my blood sugars. I don't mind too much. Just part of the drill now and my baby boy is worth it.

The other pic is just of some cute little outfits we got today. We are trying to slowly get ready for the arrival of our little boy, but there is still a long way to go...

Our Baby Boy!!!

Well, I think its time for another post. So here it goes...

Adam and I are pregnant!! We just found out last week that we are having a boy and he is due the first week of October:) I am feeling our little wiggle worm move around all the time now and Adam has felt him a few times as well. I think that's gotta be one of the best feelings I've experienced. We have some good pictures from the ultrasound, so I picked out the three that are easiest to see him in.
The first is pretty obvious...its his profile. Doesn't he just look perfect?! (I'm biased already:))
The second is looking down on his face. You can see his arm up by his head and even some little fingers, and also his round belly.
The third is the pic where we can tell he's a boy. I won't give too much detail except to say that you are looking at him from below.
We are so excited!! I am going to be better at updating our blog now that we have some more excitement in our lives. We are sure enjoying the anticipation of the arrival of Baby Rogers:)
