Now I know that if you read my blog you probably don't see me on a daily, weekly or regular basis. Well except my Mom. :) But if you have seen us since 2012 began then you would have seen my sweet boy in his red shirt. Carson has been wearing the same red shirt, day and night since 2012 began. We make him take it off for church but other than that its just not worth the fight. We are not sure what caused this love affair but every time I think it may have passed and I get him to wear something else to go to bed or something when he wakes up he immediately starts saying, "take this off, take this off. Put on red shirt!" My sweet mother got him these pajamas for Christmas and ordered him another pair for washing. I've alerted all of his friends in his playgroup that I will hand out a reward if they can get him to take it off...none have been able to. I hear this is a two year old thing... let me tell you so fun. :)
He wears it for everything. The other night I couldn't find him when it was time to get ready for bed. I finally went into my room and flipped on the light to find this:
Carson is phasing out his nap and when he is awake and Camilla is sleeping we try to do some fun activities. After our painting day we definitely had to give red shirt a "bath."

Our darling Camilla had her 6 month check up this week. I seriously love this age, it is the best! She is so interactive and social and fun, yet not moving...quite yet. Although she is giving it her best effort by already trying to crawl. Luckily she can usually just take one step and then falls over. But that is how we find her in the morning or after naps or anytime I leave her on the floor. Up on all fours, rocking, just waiting to make her move. :) Height: 26 1/4" (75th) Weight: 16 lbs. 5 oz. (55th) Head: 17.5" (90th) She's just growing away and we are loving the chucky, chunky legs! Big news for this month are that Camilla already has 2 teeth. (I didn't even notice when the first one broke through while we were in Arkansas for New Years) Random fact: Carson also got his first tooth while we were in Arkansas for New Years but it did not come in quite so smoothly. :) Also Camilla started eating rice cereal.

We decided to visit the Arboretum on a beautiful December day before heading to Arkansas for New Years and Cole's baptism. It was seriously beautiful weather and we had a wonderful time wondering around the arboretum with our family. Soon after we got there we were joined by Carson's cousins and my sisters in law and my Mom. The arboretum looks so different in the winter time but it was still so beautiful. Carson loved running around everywhere and especially all the water and ponds. When we went this fall we didn't even make it through a half of this place so it was fun to be able to see more. I wish that it was closer and we could go more often because it is so beautiful. The kids were worn out by the time we made it to the car they both fell asleep before we made it to the highway. Aaron and I were pretty worn out too.

As soon as the kids were up we prepared Carson to come out for a big surprise. He walked into the living room and immediately gave it a scan. Well we had out for him a new bike, a t-ball set, and his new books. Well this little boy breezed right past the bike and toys and straight to the new books. He picked it up, came straight up to me and said, "mommy read it." We cuddled up on the couch and read it again and again until I told him that he had to check out his bike. He was pretty excited about it, perhaps a little more about the helmet. We rode around the living room until Camilla was up and we were ready to open presents.

These pictures just show you what my life is like with this Angel girl. This is how it is with my princess every day but I love how these pictures show how much fun we had the night before Christmas. I am pretty sure that I love the night before Christmas much more than the actual day of Christmas.
AS part of our Christmas holiday fun we went with my family to the Gaylord to see the Ice show and do the sledding. Okay the ice show was SO cold. It was amazing to see the detail in the ice but poor Carson had a hard time getting into it. There was a slide at the end and I hope you can see the pure terror that came over Carson as he slid down. He did not like the fact that I put him on that slide to go down alone. By the end of the show our lips were blue but the end of the show is the coolest part. We were lucky enough to have Aaron come with us and that made it such a fun night.
