Carson Ray

I just felt like sharing some pictures of my cute little man.

A tad bit spoiled

I must say I am pretty spoiled by my husband. I am so fortunate to have a man like him. I get to stay home and hang out with my baby boy. Once a week I have a day off when Carson goes to MDO. We have a nice home, and nice cars. I couldn't ask for more. I am just so proud of his hard work.


Trying to unlock the back door. I hope he doesn't figure it out anytime soon. I'm not sure what we are going to do about this yet.

Spicy seafood jambalaya

Tonight I made spicy jambalaya for dinner. It is so easy, but not so quick. You buy whatever meat you want to put in it and just follow the directions on the box of Jambalaya mix. We normally use smoked sausage, tonight I did it a little different. Last week I had bought raw shrimp instead of cooked. What a mess that was, I definitely learned my lesson. Once I deveined the shrimp I froze them and decided to throw them in jambalaya and it was great! We eat our jambalya with black beans and Ryan likes Texas Toast.

I love this picture, I look so thin. This is my inspiration to keep working out. Bathing suit season isn't too far away.


No more bangs

My hair is finally long enough I can do this^^^... I am trying to grow my hair back out long again. It is so hard to grow it out, it seems like it takes forever. I have to get used to my bangs being put back when I wear it up, it kind of looks weird to me. I don't know the last time I saw my forehead. It's not the best picture of me, but it's okay Carson makes up for it!!! He has been loving taking pictures! I am so glad, I hope this means he does great when we have our family pictures taken.

This is Carson the day he was born. A healthy 8 lbs. 14 oz.
This is Carson today. 28 pounds. He is exactly 20 months old. I just can't believe how fast time goes by. In just 4 months I will be a mom of a 2 year old!!! WOW! I can't say I feel old, because I am only 22. I am just amazed at how much Carson has grown and accomplished in such a short amount of time. I am so proud of him!
Now, for all of the people constantly asking me when I am having another one. It will be awhile. I want to enjoy having just one child as long as I can. Don't get me wrong I get baby fever often, but then I think about carrying bottles, taking the infant carrier out of the car, I would need a double stroller, it's hard to find people who would want to watch two kids instead of just one. So many things would change. I like bonding and spoiling my very busy little man!

The perfect snack cup for toddlers

I LOVE these snack cups. They are awesome for the car and on the go. You just fill them up with whatever snack you want and they stick their little hands down in there and grab it. Carson hasn't figured out how to take the lid off yet, so we're still good to go. I know it won't be long before I am looking for another snack cup he can't take the lid off of.


Lately every night on the news they have talked about this new grocery store. I am so ready for the one in Rowlett to open. I think it is going to be the closest one to me for now. They say it's cheaper than I guess Wal Mart? I sure hope so, I would definitely drive the extra mile. Anyone know much about it?

kids can sleep anywhere...

I'm not sure why this photo came out so dark? It could most likely be because I took it from my phone. Anyway... Carson was napping and he woke up crying. This means he wasn't really ready to get up. He came into the kitchen and decided to finish his nap next to me while I am on FB. ha. He is just so sweet. I can't imagine he could be too comfy or warm I know the tile floor has to be cold. I'm cold just sitting around.
