At 1:13 PM today our boy will be TWO years old. I loved the day he was born. I really do remember it like it was yesterday. He was born right into my arms. My "wonderful surprise" I called him over and over again. It seemed like everyone we knew and loved came to meet our son that night. It was one of the proudest and happiest days of my life. TWO years later he is still surprising us.

His loving heart makes me smile everyday. When I am away from him all I have to his think of his latest smile or laugh and I instantly feel better. Carson has that way about him. You just can't help but smile when you around him. Sometimes he will pull away from my hugs and shout loudly, "Cars! Trucks Mommy!" But mostly, yes most of the time, he will cuddle and hug with me a very long time. He has this endearing way of leaning his body into you and wrapping his arms around your neck. I love it. While Kate has started to duck my kisses and even wipe them off sometimes, Carson lets me cover his face in kisses.

I love how God reveals his personality more and more everyday. This boy is going to have a huge heart for people. This is my favorite Carson story of his 2nd year and shows his true character. He just LOVES!  It started one night when his Daddy was holding him and saying his bed time prayers. I was standing just a little bit away from both of them. Suddenly Carson reaches out his arm wraps it around my neck and PULLS me in close to both of them. I LOVE this. Ever since that night I stand a little bit  away to see if he will do it again and every night when his Daddy starts the prayer that little arm flings out and wraps around my neck and pulls me in close.That story tells so much about Carson and who he is. Happy 2nd Birthday to our sweet loving boy! We can't wait to see what God has in store for him this year!

Betsy what a precious video! I love every e-visit I share with you and yours. "Miss Mary Joy" loves you and prays for you often. Hope to meet your little ones some day soon!

God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
