This time a year ago I was in recovery and you and your Daddy were probably in the nursery. You weighed 6 lb 14 oz and my hands were so swollen I could barely bend them. Thankfully your Daddy is hands on. He changed your diapers for the first 48 hours. You were wearing itsy bitsty Newborn diapers and yesterday I just bought size 4 for the first time. Technically you can still fit the size 3, but they were getting a little snug.
You now have an extra tooth on top for a total of 3 on top and 4 on bottom.
You've totally switched to whole milk.
You are funny. You enjoy peek-a-boo. Some times you just laugh out loud. I'm sure one day you'll tell me and Daddy the story.
You have the sweetest little belly.
You are still timid with the whole walking thing. It will come.
Carsyn. This last year has flown by. I hope some day you will read this blog and enjoy it. That you will appreciate our daily life and know that your Daddy and I love you so much!

Here is the view form our Tahoe driving north to Oklahoma on Christmas day.
What should have taken 2 hours 45 minutes tops, took us almost 6 1/2 hours. With a 1 year old. Thank the Lord she slept most of the way.
The roads in Texas were horrible. No exaggeration, we probably saw over 100 cars/trucks/semi on the side of the road between Bowie and the river.
It was a LONG day. Notice the sun is setting?
Here is the Red River. It divides Oklahoma and Texas. We were so thankful to be at my parents house safely.

So we sold them on Craigslist. Nuts. No W/D. What will I do with all my spare time????

It doesn't look high to Carsyn. Nope. She climbed up the stairs last night. Went to change clothes when I got home from work, left her to play in the living room. Crawled from the living room all the way up the stairs.
Yup, it was terrifying. She was laughing and my heart was in the throat. Forgive me for the lack of baby in the picture. We're trying to discourage the stair climbing and I didn't think it was wise to put her back on the stairs to get a pic.

Tonight she got to enjoy the fruits of our labor.
It was a hit. But Daddy's home and who cares about food now.

I can hardly breath typing this. 11 months. 11 months. With so many friends and family members pregnant, I recount the day Carsyn was born often. I remember everything so clearly. I remember the pain, the stress, the lack of sleep, the stitches, the invasion of privacy, the fear, the first cry. Oh my, that first cry. The world stopped. I took a deep breath, looked at Tony and said, that's our baby. The world stopped for that moment and it was just us. After that moment, the Earth started spinning at warp speed and hasn't slowed down. The ride has begun and there is no getting off. That's ok though. You are worth it all. Thank you for being our baby.
Ok, so you're a little messy. I'll let it slide because you were at Granny's house. But next time Aunt Misty won't be there to pick up your books. You'll learn. I'll teach you.

Basically I'm more of a loser because this is the only other good picture I got. Here is Tony's sister, Charity, and her new husband Chris.

Mostly to satisfy my own curiosity, I have Carsyn a piece of toast at Golden Corral on Saturday. Half a piece. She couldn't get her hands on it fast enough. She really really tried hard to get the entire thing in her mouth. Needless to say, I took it back. All of it. She hadn't managed to get one little bite. I'm sparing you the yuckiness that followed. Then I gave her little pieces of the other half.

Oooo, maybe I like these bubbles. Let me try. I need to touch it, maybe taste it.
OK, I'm serious now. I need to get to the bottom of this bubble thing.
Sorry, I don't have a good pic after this. I was on 'don't eat the soapy water' mommy mode.
