"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Big Brother Night

Nana and Papa stayed at our house while Carson took a nap so that Matt and I could go to our ultrasound. Matt had to go back to work afterwards, so I went home to tell Carson the news. When he woke up from his nap, I went into his room and told him he was going to have a baby brother. Of course he had know idea what I was telling him, but I burst into tears with the thought of Carson being a big brother! Carson says "Baby" all the time and lifts my shirt to kiss my belly. I showed him the ultrasound pictures.
Before Daddy got home from work, I took Carson to the grocery store for his favorite sprinkle sugar cookie. Matt and I wanted to take him out for some fun and celebrate that Carson was going to have a baby brother! We went to Red Brick Pizza, yum! They have TV's at every booth, and we put his favorite "Yo Gabba Gabba" show on so Mommy and Daddy could enjoy their pizza too. :)
Then it was off to Babies R Us to try out some double strollers and let Carson pick out a toy for his new baby brother.
Of course Carson picks out the most expensive teddy bear you can find! Ha! He loved on this giant Winnie the Pooh.
We finally got him to settle on the same thing, just a smaller version. He had fun running all over the store with Daddy, and I looked at bedding, and blankets, and cute boy clothes. We are so excited to have another son, and can't wait for Carson to be a big brother. Here is a video of Carson trying out the "Sit and Stand" stroller. I thought he was way too young for this stroller just yet, but he proved Mommy wrong. Such a big boy!

  1. Love that he picked a bear bigger than him! I think the "sit and stand" is perfect! Remember when we used to stand & ride on the end of the grocery cart? It's just like that - he'll love it! :)
