Until my wonderful friend Kerri reminded me this morning that I hadn't updated in a while, I didn't realize how long it had been. This winter seems to be just flying by.
I honestly wish I had a camera attached to my head, carrying around Beckett all the time makes it kind of hard to snap all the moments I want to.
Like I wish I had caught Carson's first time on real skates. We went up to the outdoor hockey rink and he was so excited to sit in the trailer with the other kids and strap on his skates. I didn't have a hockey stick for him, so we borrowed one from a family who had some extra. We just walked around the rink (I only held him with one hand) and he's more comfortable on his skates now, he just kind of shuffles/walks along but I figure that's the first step.
I wish I had caught him playing with all the other kids outside the school in the big snow banks. Kindergarten is let out at 11:30 so we try to make it at the same time so there are other kids to play with - it's like an accidental playgroup! We saw Naomi, who Carson used to go to daycare with so that was exciting.
I would have loved to catch on camera the fun times we had at Sofia's birthday party with a ton of other kids.
The weather has been so nice, I would have loved to catch some action shots of Carson jumping in the puddles.
If it wasn't so cold the other morning, I would have showed you Carson in his total element, standing on the street corner for 30 minutes just watching the snowplows and dumptrucks. I don't know how many of you have boys, so I don't know how normal it is, but since he was about 7 months old (when I think he held his first car) he's never let go his love affair with trucks. Cars. Trains. Tractors. Trucks. If it has wheels and moves, he's in love.
It's easy to catch them in their sweet moments in the house. Carson loving up his brother. When Beckett sees Carson, he breaks into the biggest smile imaginable and is always trying to grab for him. Carson, in return, loves his brother unconditionally (that's most likely only because Beckett can't take Carson's toys yet) and is always kissing him, wanting to hold him, telling him all the things they will do together when he's older.
It's the sweetest thing and I love seeing my boys together.
