End of a long week

*First off-Happy Birthday to my nephew Peyton !!

It's the end of a long week at the Graham household. Long because Paul has been in Colorado all week. Boo! We don't like it when Daddy is gone!! Thankfully my Mom has been here to help me which has been great! It's also been an emotional week. The Dad of one of my childhood friends passed away. Things like that quickly remind me how short life is and how blessed and lucky I am.

We've got a busy weekend ahead of us. More updates and pictures to come. But here are some from this past week.

Pulling up on everything!
Carving Pumpkins...hard work

This is Carson's new thing- that's his tongue sticking out under the passy

Jack was very excited to get started

Carson's first trim

His shirt got stuck like this, looked like two big ears!

Playing sweet!

Monday again...and half way through October!

Where do the months keep going? I'm amazed that October is almost gone and Carson is already 7 months old! I still haven't gotten all the pictures off of the camera from our trip to Canada, but I did want to update the blog and posts are no fun without photos!

Paul being silly with Dad.

Carson and he a Graham or what? Still haven't figured out what to do with Carson's hair. It grows STRAIGHT forward!

Grandma Viv & Carson. He was back to his normal happy self by the end of the week!

This week is yet another busy one! Paul has been working in the yard like crazy trying to get everything cleaned up. He's still got lots of wood to split, but the yard looks much better! And that's a good thing because we're hosting my friend Callie's baby shower at our place this Saturday! Thank God for Mom! She's coming this week to help me and will stay through next week since Paul will be in Colorado for the entire week.
Then next weekend we're going to a halloween party ;-) and then trick or treating on Saturday! Jack is going to be Buzz Light Year and Carson is going to be Woody! The costumes are hysterical, I'll definitely take lots of pictures...but here's a sneak peak because I just can't resist!

He immediately starting posing and saying "To infinity and beyond!"

So, I guess that's it for today. Lots of things coming up so hopefully I can be a little faster with the photos and updates.

We're Lindsay

We arrived yesterday as planned and are enjoying our time with the family and the beautiful colors!

We had planned to leave Birmingham between 3-4 pm on Wedesday but didn't get on the road until around 6pm. Carson has had a fever virus so Paul and I split the workday and he had several things to finish before we could leave. The drive over was fine and Carson slept the entire way which meant he was WIDE awake when we arrived at the hotel. We had a bit of a rough night with him up on the hour, but we are still glad we went over the night before.

the boys at the hotel
Our flight was great! The airport wasn't too busy and our flight was even early! We had a great flight attendant, Joe, and we sat on the front row. (the camera was in the overhead so pics of Carson's first plane ride will have to be taken on the return!)

Finally out of the car!

Beautiful weather & great walk outside

The leaves are just starting to change...the walk was beautiful!

Heading down the road

More to come...

Carson on the move

Just a quick video of Carson on the move.  Little by little he’s exploring more and more. Tonight while I was making dinner I thought he sounded a little closer than normal. As I came through the dining room I saw him sitting near the front door, chasing Frank. This was the first time he has come all the way out of the den!  He will also pull/push up on ANYTHING!  He pushed up on his little drum this week. They call him the dare devil at school.


I took him for his ENT follow up  this morning and they said his ears & the tubes look great!  We also had his hearing retested and he passed with flying colors. Only bad news is that he has a bad case of thrush. Poor thing, we get his ears better and now his mouth hurts. I’m also certain he’s got another tooth (or teeth) coming through. He’s FINALLY sleeping through the night…praise God!

Jack got his hair cut tonight. I always hate to cut his beautiful curls, but as the humidity goes away, it doesn’t curl quite as much and it was very long. We’re going to Cate’s birthday party tomorrow so I’ll try to get some pictures. Next week starts our month of craziness so I’ll be doing good to get posts up!
