Such A Talker......Now

I love Carson......
not just because he can be sneaky......goofy......and just plain adorable.......But because he talks so well! He has worked so hard and done so great on his speech. His speech was delayed. On his 2nd birthday he was only saying a few words. A lot of the reason he was having speech issues was because of this:

he is a thumb sucker. So we put him in Speech Therapy and a playgroup and he improved leaps and bounds. He is now all caught up with just a few articulation issues, but is doing so AWESOME!!!! Now we can't get the child to be quiet. I love it!!! I am just so proud of him. He is a little STUD!!
His phrase of choice right now is, "oh snap!"

Luckily a wonderful lady from our ward was there at the 5K to cheer her daughter on, so as we finished she snapped our picture too.
See we really did do it!

Joshie's 1 Yr. Pics

We Did It!

This past weekend was our City's celebration. Nate and I decided to run the 5K on Monday, at the last minute. Without really being prepared, I was nervous, but WE DID IT!!! Our first 5K and running event all together and we weren't last! It was so fun to do it with Nate. We pushed Joshie in the stroller and he loved every minute of it. Nate did so awesome. I was so proud of him! I have always wanted to do something like this and now that I have, I am less intimidated and I think I am hooked. We are planning to do a 4-miler on Thanksgiving and then my goal is to run a half marathon in 2010. Wish me luck! It feels so great to accomplish something that you have never done before. Unfortunately we didn't get any pics. What was I thinking not documenting this with a photo?! The best part of the whole event was doing it with my Honey and Best Friend!

Carson, Carson, Carson!

Carson did this again. This time around was not as pleasant and easy as the first. So after:
  1. one Pedatrician
  2. one Ear, Nose and Throat doctor
  3. multiple "tools"
  4. a screaming, fighting 3 yr. old (this kid is freakishly strong!)
  5. a shot for sedation (I cried. So NOT fun!)
  6. one wonderful husband who came to my aid after my teary eyed phone call
  7. a wonderful Aunt Carrie who watched our other 2 boys

2 hours later we were left with an extracted popcorn kernel and this banged up, bloody right ear. Luckily there is no damage to the ear drum, just the inside is scratched up. I was emotionally exhausted by the end. Poor kid. I think he will really NEVER do that again......atleast we can hope!

A new little one will be joining the C* family in March. Now, now don't get ahead of yourselves! We are NOT having a baby! However, this cute couple is and it will be their first! Hooray for Caytee and Preston (Nate's little sis and hubby). We are thrilled for them. Congrats to you guys and we love you!
