God might have thrown us another curve ball. Once again, we feel His hand guiding us and we are having to give up all control. That's okay since He thankfully knows best. More on that later. Or more on that when we actually know what is going on.
Josh and I just finished painting our new office that he constructed last week. I love being married to a handy man! I decided to just go for it and paint our bedroom as well. I'm glad I did. It's amazing what change can do for the soul. I've been wanting to do something massively different with my hair, get a tattoo, or you know something crazy, but for now this has satisfied my desire for change and has for now prevented anything I might regret. I finally get to unpack and then hang some of my beloved decorations from our old house. This place is finally starting to feel like home.
Carson's vocabulary is budding. He picks up a few new words each day and it is shocking us! My favorite words are still, "where'd it do?" Or "Where'd Daddy do? Melts my heart. You probably have to hear him say those words to understand just how adorably cute they are. One of his newest words is quickly making the top 10 list and it's turtdle (turtle). Somehow he manages to add that d in there along with the t. He LOVES books which makes me very happy. Is it wrong to think your child is the smartest kid on the face of the planet? Whenever I try to trick Carson out of something (like giving him watered down juice instead of pop), I hear Josh's voice next to me, "he's not stupid you know." Yes, I've discovered that. Today he looked at me and said "that's not pop" in his baby voice. He also now says please but instead of using the word in the form of good manners, he decides to use it to try and get what he wants. This is usually how it goes: Carson: "Nummy? Mommy, Nummy? Me: "No, Carson you've had too much sugar today." Carson: "Nummy, mommy, pease, (sad big brown eyes) pease mommy?" For pete's sake! I almost cave each time. Key word though is almost!
I'm loving this stage. Other than the fact that he is growing up way too fast and can now create a screeching sound that nearly blows the eardrums, this age is perfect.
