Working Mom

I am going back to work tomorrow. A couple of years ago I didn't think I wanted children, then I decided that I could be a mom but NEVER a stay at home mom. Work is quickly approaching and I'm wanting to be that stay at home mom now. I know that this is not a possibility for us right now, but hopefully someday I will be able to stay home with Carson. Until then I get to go back to work and see my other kids! I have mixed emotions about going back. Should I be excited to go back and see my kids or should I be sad to leave Carson. I thought that I would be a total wreck to leave him, but then I think about all of my sweet kids at school and I feel at peace. I think that God has really given me a very rewarding job. I love the people that I work with and the children that I get to spend my days with. I know that tomorrow isn't going to be an easy day, but I think that I'm going to be okay. I'm so blessed to have my mom, who is going to keep Carson while I'm at work. She is an amazing mom and she has taught me so much the last 8 weeks. I know that Carson is going to have a great day tomorrow with her. Please keep us all in your prayers and we embark on the "Working Mom" adventure.

Zack and I are going to leave our sweet little boy for the first time tonight. It had to happen sometime and I needed to do it before I go back to work. We are going to the Heart of Texas Fair Gala tonight. Clay Walker is performing! He is special to Zack and I bc that was the first concert we went to together. So...wish us luck. I hope we can have some much needed Mommy/Daddy time.

Here are my boys watching the Cowboys play. Hopefully they will win again this week. Carson has been having some fussy nights. He goes through a fussy time almost every evening. It is almost always when Zack gets home from the bank. We like to call it his crying hour. It isn't what Zack would want to come home to, but he usually is fine after dinner. Carson slept from 8:30 to 6:30 last night. It was a much needed solid night of sleep for Zack. He has been working a lot lately. It takes him away from Carson and it is really taking a tole on Zack. I am thankful for how hard he works with the business and in school. We just have to stick through a couple more semesters with him going to school. I think once he is done I'm going to try to go back for grad school.

I went and took pictures of the house this weekend. I need to figure out how to put pictures on a slideshow on here. Things are moving along....but not moving along fast enough. It's getting very frustrating. I just want to be able to live in the house we bought almost 3 months ago. I know once it is done we will love it and it will be "our" home. I'm just ready to have Carson's nursery done. He is getting big for his bassinet. Pray that our house gets done in a timely manner.

6 weeks

Here is Carson after his bath time. He hates taking a bath. I'm hoping that he will start to like them when he can finally be in the water. We still have to be careful with his umbilical cord still being attached.

I can't believe that Carson was born 6 weeks ago today! He has grown so much! He is smiling and cooing. He is absolutely adorable. We want to get his picture made but we are still waiting for his umbilical cord stump to fall off......yes you read that right he STILL has it. We went to the Dr. last Weds and she said that he was just trying to set a record. If he hasn't lost it by Weds of this week we have to go back in and she will give us some meds to help it come off. My mom informed me that she didn't lose hers for a long time as well. She actually had to have hers removed in the Dr's office. I am hoping that he doesn't have to do that. Please pray that it will come off in the next two days.

News from the house....we are still waiting. Things are starting to really come along though. I will take pictures today or tomorrow.
