Brotherly Love

When Natalie was born, Carson was so soft and careful with her, and he just loved her so much. I wondered if it would last. Half of it did. He still adores her and loves to be with her and share, but he is no longer soft. One minute he'll be cooing at her, and the next he's jumping on her or pulling her hair. The crazy thing about it is that she still loves him! No matter how rough he is with her, she still gives him the biggest smiles, and nobody can make her laugh the way he does. He'll play Ring Around the Rosies by himself, running around in circles in front of her, and she'll laugh and laugh. Mike and I sure can't get he to laugh that hard. He loves to play with her, and he always shares his

favorite toys with her.

I Love Having A Girl!

What an angel! I was worried that I wouldn't know what to do with a girl, but I have been pleasantly surprised to find that I love it! I am particularly fond of her new hairdo with 2 ponytails. And finding cute dresses is the best! I love having my little girl! What a perfect addition to our family.

Too Skinny?

Carson has always been a skinny kid. A few weeks ago, he got pretty sick, and he hardly ate anything for about 10 days. He lost weight, I could tell, because every pair of pants he had would fall off. One day I let him pick out what Natalie was going to wear, and he chose this cute jean skirt with pink tassles from Jadi. But instead of letting Natalie wear it, Carson decided to put it on. The crazy thing was this: It fit him around the waist! My two year old son is only slightly bigger around the waist than my 5 month old daughter! He's been eating much better the last week or two, so hopefully he will put weight back on quickly so he can't wear any more of her clothes.

Carson's Baby

Before Natalie was born, we got Carson his own baby. Though he liked it okay at the time, it has turned out to be a great toy now that Mommy has a baby. He says his baby is a girl and her name is Natalie, too. She wears Natalie's clothes and diapers that are too small for her now. And whatever Mommy's Natalie is doing, Carson's Natalie has to do the same thing! It is just so cute to see him take care of his baby!

Carson has always been more than willing to share all of his toys with his sister. This is his new favorite toy that the Easter Bunny brought him. I doubt he'd share it with his friends, but here he is, putting it up to Natalie's mouth so that she can lick it, because he knows that licking stuff is one of her favorite things to do. What a sweet big brother.

I just went out to get the mail, and I was surprised to feel how warm it was! The weather was just gorgeous. I came inside and checked our current weather conditions. 45 degrees with winds at only 14mph. What a balmy, spring day! Gotta love the Rocky Mountain region! :)
