1 Year, 12 Months, 365 Days!

Happiest of birthdays, to my darling little boy!

Dear Carson,

Wow.  Just like that, it's here.  Your big day.

I still can't believe a whole year has gone by and I still can't believe you haven't been a part of my life since the beginning of forever.

You are such a sweetheart; always smiling, always happy.  There are so many things about you that make my heart swell with pride and love.  To put my love for you into words is quite impossible, but I've done the best I can in a private letter just for you.

I love you so much more each and every day.


12 Month Update
Weight:  22 pounds
Length:  30+ inches
Nicknames: Milkman, Milk Monster, CT, Hungry Hungry Hippo, Bubby, Monster, Buddy Boy
Sleep: You've started going to bed earlier since you are using so much more energy during the day.  Typically you are out by 7:00 and awake around 6:00.  You are still a champion sleeper.  You like to sleep in your crib - you definitely don't want to be held or in bed with us when you go to sleep.  Although those moments where you are snuggly and fall asleep in our arms are extra special.
Eating:  You love food!  Some of your favorites are pancakes, Ritz crackers, macaroni and cheese, carrots, chicken and dumplings, banana, hummus, Nutrigrain bars, and pears.
Clothing: 12-18 months

Exciting Moments:
You started walking on 12/5/14
You are saying more words: dog, dada, mama, that, uh-oh
You shake your head no and you're trying hard to be able to nod yes
When we say "no" you look at us and smile and wave your hands up and down as if to say, "Don't worry - no big deal over here."
Momma's Milestones:
I have made Success Club with my Beachbody business every month since becoming a coach and I earned a free ticket to the Summit for 2015.

Just look at the change!
