Oh I have wonderful news! I am now eating chocolate again. For those of you that didn't know, I cut chocolate completely out of my diet when Carson was about 5 weeks old. The doctor told me that could be contributing to his fussiness. So, because I wanted him to be a happy baby I made a HUGE sacrifice and just quit cold turkey. It was so hard. Seriously I didn't think I could live without it, but I did. I survived. I have recently been adding chocolate back into my diet slowly. It hasn't seemed to effect Carson. I could just cry I am so happy. I feel like life is so good now that I can eat chocolate. I was not going to even try it until after the holidays were over so that I could avoid all the chocolate sweets that make me fat, but I just couldn't do it. I plan to take it easy, but we'll see what happens.

We finally went out and bought Carson a high chair. We have been using his little BeBe Pod to feed him, but he hangs off the side and I swear he is going to fall right on his head. I needed something that could confine him a little better. I think I was way more excited than he was for the high chair, but he definitely likes it.
I forgot to post last week, but Carson is 7 months old. He is growing like crazy and just keeps getting cuter and cuter everyday. I just love to kiss his little cheeks. He is such a sweet boy and loves to give hugs and wet kisses (and he tries to bite my cheek at the same time). He started waving last week and it is the cutest thing ever. His favorite person to wave at is himself in the mirror. He just learned to drink out of a straw. He is becoming a pretty good eater-finally. He still isn't crawling, but he wants to so bad. I'm sure he'll get the hang of it one of these days (or months). He can be a complete goofball at times, but most of all he is just an all around happy boy.
Carson is playing with Chill's name tag. It is one of his favorite things to do.

Yes I am admitting that yesterday I listened to Christmas music while I was driving in the car. I get so dang excited for Christmas music and I can't help but listen to it. It just gets in in the Christmas mood. Kozy 106.5 plays all Christmas all the time. I am usually a closet listener from the day after Halloween until the day after Thanksgiving, but I've decided to confess to all of you. It seems that after Thanksgiving it is socially acceptable to listen to Christmas music but not a minute before. I haven't even told Chill yet because I know what he'll say. Now please don't judge me because I know that there are a lot of you out there that have already listened to it too. I'm sure some of you are headed right now to turn on your radio just to get in the Christmas spirit! Now as for the equation above: Carson has had a cold for the past little while and has not been the happiest camper at times. Well yesterday was one of those days. We were in the car and he was just screaming away while I was up front driving, singing to my Christmas music and having a good old time. I decided I turn up the volume a little in the back. The moment I did that, SILENCE...and then he was fast asleep. I could have cried because just the thought that Carson might just love Christmas music as much as I do is just wonderful!!! Chill isn't a big fan, but he is so nice and puts up with it the entire season...well after Thanksgiving that is. So to all of you out there that love Christmas music and are already listening to it...just know you have my support!!!

We were able to spend the day on Saturday in Logan for our friend Kyle's wedding. My friend Andrea was nice enough to watch Carson for a few hours so that we could go to the wedding ceremony at the Logan Temple. After the ceremony and pictures, we headed over to get lunch at one of my favorite spots, Firehouse Pizza! Yum Yum. We had a great time and Carson was having a great time playing with Steve and slapping his bald head. After lunch we all took it easy for about an hour at Andrea's house and then we all piled back in the car again and it was off to Ogden for the reception at Union Station. Carson had pretty much had it by that time. He was not a happy camper because he didn't get to nap very much during the day. At some point he got his second wind and was a happy boy. He also has a new best friend, Morgan. She was so sweet and took care and entertained him most of the night. At one point she had him on the floor and she blew bubbles for him for like an hour. He loved it and it was a good break for me. Although the day was long, we had so much fun spending the day with all our friends.
