Carson turned 1!

While I'm on a roll and staying up way later than I should, I figured I'd finally post about my lil man turning 1. He turned 1 on May 7th! Yikes, he's turning into a toddler (or is one?)! I love seeing him grow but it happens too fast! I took him to the zoo with my mom and sis in law + kiddos on his bday and Garrett and I took him to Ihop that night, which he loved and devoured the majority of his kids meal (lol the only time we've bought him his own food at a restaurant).

This is what most of our pictures of him look like now, a blurr...

He got his owie on his bday, freak accident in the car with an ice scraper while I changed his bum (he didn't even fall so don't ask me how he managed it!)
Walk down memory lane (backwards apparently, someone smarter should have set up blogger easier/quicker to use)...
9 months

6 months

4 months

2 months

So fresh and so new... It's fun to see him grow but it's sad looking at his newborn pics and knowing he will never ever be that little again and everyday he changes and doesn't go back... Something every mom probably always battles with!

The next day after his birthday, he had his big birthday bash, which of course was a perfect day except for when we were rushing to set it all up and it got extremely windy and then lasted through the majority of the party before it was perfectly still. I know it could have been worse but I was about ready to kill the wind at first but luckily I had lots of help and except for 3 of his balloons escaping out of the car, it was a success! He ate his whole piece of cake and another half and loved all the attention!

I can't brag about making this awesome cake but I can brag about having awesome enough friends who made it for Carson and helping with some ideas(?)! Thanks again Angie & Kyle!

Mason left on his mission a few day after this, we'll miss you Mase! He is such a good uncle (& babysitter lol).

What a happy lil birthday boy!

such a cutie!! I feel you when you say they grow up so fast. I feel like Aiva is growing SOO much faster than Jackson did and it really scares me sometimes. I liked when jack was one, it was a fun age. Happy birthday carson!

He is such a cutie! I'm pretty sure he is as big as Brekke is now when he was 2 months old! ;) He looks like such a toddler in that last pic
