S: CARSON: THE NEXT 4 YEARS
1: To keep you busy, I had you counting the underwear I'd picked out- I had 1 last pair to find, went to hand it to you- but you were gone. I called out "Carson!!" and got no response. In a slight panic, I started looking for you. As I rounded the corner, this is what I saw: | Need I say more?
3: An odd rhino picture, but I kinda like it. It's different. I like different. That rhino marches to her own beat. She's unique, a bit edgy; a take-charge kinda girl. This book is about someone who holds his own and isn't afraid to be himself. I love that confidence. He's someone who holds a special place in my heart. Any guesses??? xoxo Mommy
6: Right on! It's all about you, Carson! And there is oh-so-much to tell......... You have become a sensitive, sweet, mischevious, insightful, strong, hold-your-own kinda kid. you continue to entertain us and offer the sincerest hugs. Life with you and Ben keeps getting better every day. I love you, love you, love you! xoxo Mommy

57: This is a funny picture- You stayed home from school for a doctor's appointment. Afterwards, you, Carly and I went for a picnic by the waterfall at the Bog Gardens. The funniest part is that this was in late spring- no where near Halloween. You decided the candy bucket was perfect for carrying our lunch!!! (and the cape was simply part of your everyday wear)
