Mr. Social

Sorry it has been so long since I have posted last.  We have been very busy with the business, an active toddler, and a pregnancy.

Thankfully our schedule is going to slow down a bit so I should be able to keep up again:)

Carson has become Mr. Social.  He went through a shy stage that we thought was pretty normal.  Both Josh and I were extremely shy growing up so we thought he would be the same. Well Carson has seemed to grow out of it.  He now wants to say hi to everybody and I mean everybody.  Even people who don't want to say hi to him.  Which really bugs me.  How can you not say hi back to an adorable two year old!  The nerve of some people.  However, it is teaching him about the real world, it's just hard as a mom to watch.

This new social interest is also causing Josh and I to step out of our box a bit.  I don't think I've ever talked to strangers so much in my life!  Suddenly I'm striking up conversations with random people at the grocery store as I interpret what my son is trying to say to them.  Plus what he's trying to say is usually very two-year old oriented.  "Hi, HI, I have Lightening McQueen on my shoes.  He goes fast and my shoes light up...see...oh they didn't light up...sorry blows raspberry."  When I interpret these conversations people look at me like my child is strange.  Oh well, it makes sense to a two year old and I happen to find it adorable :)  I make sure to reassure Carson since I think his new budding social life is good for him.
