Carson's new blankie

Well I have been battling some new challenges this week so I have remained silent. I will hopefully be able to clear my head and move forward.

Coltan and Cody have been home every night this week and their Grandfather is in need of some huge prayers. He has been battling cancer for the last few years and now it has come to a dead end with his treatment. I have been very upset over the latest news. I'm not only praying for him but Coltan, Cody, their dad Chris and his mother, wife, and three other children. What they will endure over this journey is going to be extremely difficult on all.

Carson has had a better week. He is eating a little better which is a huge step forward in my book. His heart monitor still goes off several times a day so we are calling those strips in. Baby steps right??

Now for the pictures. My dear friend Lacey from Jaxson's Fight was thoughtful enough to take the time and make Carson this awesome Thomas the train blanket. Carson LOVES it. He is a very big blankie boy and he always has to sleep with one. Also he carries one around the house and likes to sit down and put it over his lap and then play cars on top of it. When we got this in the mail, you should have seen his face....it was priceless. So Lacey, THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART! Carson has even named it. He calls it his "Choo Choo" blanket.

Here we are showing off our new blankie. Still being a ham with his blanket.

Look how sweet he is. I can sit up all night and watch him sleep. He is such a blessing.

Glad Carson is eating better - I am sure that's a relief. He is just beautiful! I think each picture he gets cuter!

I am so sorry to hear about the boys' grandpa. I will keep him and the family in my prayers.

Kaden is a big blankie boy too. He doesn't carry one around, but needs one to sleep with at night. He is now into tags (you know, like on shirts, towels, blankies...). He loves to put his thumb through them and hold on. So I found this "blankie" that he got when he was little that had little tag type silky things that went all the way around it thinking he would love the thing...blankies and tags together, doesn't get much better then that right??? Well, he wasn't impressed.

Anyway, enough of my rambling. I can't get enough of Carson's smile. He is just so darn cute!!!

I don't know where you find the time to blog and update with all these awesome photos. Especially since now I know that you sit up all night and watch your cutie sleep!

Actually, I would have liked to watch my boys sleep last night, but alas, they were up five or six times (and the two times I tried to sneak a tooth fairy move, I woke MS as well - urgh!)

Have been praying for you and your boys. Wondering how you are, but know that sometimes life just gets in the way of keeping in touch. May God hold you close and send lots of friends to keep your arms up when you are fatigued!
