>Celebrating Carson!


8 years ago right now we were at home watching an ice storm make its way into NC. My parents encouraged us to go to Gastonia (an hour away) to make sure I’d be near the hospital in case Carson decided to come overnight. They met us there and we all crashed in the same hotel room: Mom, Dad, me, Matt and Hayden. I remember Matt was studying for a seminary exam… (random memory)
Sure enough, my water broke during the night and we were right beside GMH. Sweet Carson joined our family at a whopping 9 lbs 11 oz and with the sweetest cheeks you’ve ever seen.

He is the easiest kid to get along with, rarely complaining
about anything. He reads so fast I have a hard time keeping up with him even when we reserve books from other Army libraries. His giggle is so cute, even if he tries to hide it from us. He looks too cute in his Army hat and we are thankful that Ms. Jennifer had a replacement for the one he lost.

Carson doesn’t like fruit, but will eat veggies, so it’s a trade-off. His favorite food is his mom’s spaghetti but looks forward to any chance to eat pizza, especially when it is for his own birthday celebration!! šŸ™‚

He’s decided to be in the Army when he grows up… he wants to fire at targets like on the AFN commercials. (He likes the “pop-up” targets.)

He just told me thanks for a Christmas gift we gave him 2 months ago, yet another example of his appreciation for what he has.

Carson doesn’t get a lot of the limelight in our family… Parker’s the baby, Bailey’s a ham, and Hayden’s the first to accomplish each next step. But that doesn’t mean he’s any less special to our family. His quiet nature is part of who he is and yet another positive attribute that he gets from his dad. From me, he gets his love of surprises, not wanting to know what his presents are until it’s the right time! He even wants his gift from us on Saturday, the day of his small party, instead of tomorrow, his actual birthday.

I enjoy this opportunity to celebrate the young man who is Carson.

About Jennifer

"Yes, they're all mine." The answer to the question I hear most often.
