Daycare reports that Carson has scaled back his nap time as of late. This may be due in part to the general active lifestyle that Carson has begun to lead. Since he spends his days babbling away, trying to grab everything in sight, and pulling himself around the room....there really is no time for napping. So after a grand total of 80 minutes spent napping today, I expected Carson to crash on the way home from daycare, no such luck. Around 5:30 I began to give Carson his nightly feeding, tonight's featured cuisine was sweet potatoes and oatmeal, and during a break from the food Carson drifted off to sleep. This kid will sleep anywhere, just not necessarily the time requested of him. Oh well, such is a day in the life of Carson. He sure looks peaceful here!

Sorry about the lapse in posting, but life sure has been busy. Carson has occupied his time by mastering the fine art of rolling over (still from back to belly only), sprouting two teeth on his lower gums, and expertly sitting up on his own.
Bill and Lisa loaned us a jumparoo that they have for when their nephew visits them from eastern Washington. We expected Carson to jump right in and start having some fun, but it appears that he needs a little more time before he figures this one out. He can stand for awhile, but then decides to sit down in the middle of the jumparoo for a respite. He'll figure it out soon and come close to launching himself into outer space.

About two weeks ago we noticed Carson's first tooth breaking through his lower gum and then a few days after that we noticed tooth number two. Maybe Carson's teething had something to do with the mild fevers and other symptoms that he has experienced in recent weeks. Yesterday as we babysat Calder and Griffin, Carson flirted with the idea of crawling. Don't get me wrong, he still has a ways to go, but as we sat on the floor together, Carson learned that he can push up with his arms and legs and make himself turn in all different directions. He can now move his body a full 360 degrees with this new method, I imagine this is a precursor to crawling. Oh yeah, he also recently mastered the art of sitting up by himself and only needs a boppy behind him to provide a safeguard for any potential tipping backwards, which happens with less and less frequency. Finally, Carson enjoys making different consonant sounds like "Ba", "Da", and "Ga".......Trish claims that he also says, "Ma", but I haven't heard it yet....since it's Mother's Day we'll take her word for it.
