Carson Dennis Smith

July 10th 2010 is the day that sweet little Carson came into our life! We are so blessed to have him, we love him soooo much!!! He weighed 5lbs 14oz. and he was 18 inches long. When the nurse laid him on my chest he was seriously the most precious, beautiful little baby i have ever seen! I was in awe! Even though we were tired Brandon and I were on cloud nine!

We are proud parents!
Brand new!
So sweet!

mommy's little boy!

We love him sooooooooooo much! (that's an understatement)

Because Carson was so little he had to pass the car-seat test
Poor thing had to sit in his seat for an hour before they let us go home. at first i thought it was lame, but since we have traveled so much after he was born it made me feel better.

This is us right before we left the hospital! So exciting!

Brinley's Birthday Bash

Brinley had a black light dance party for her 19th birthday. It was a lot of fun. I was there dancing like a fool, prego belly and all! That night after the party at 3:30 in the morning my water broke! I think it was all the crazy dancing. it was a lot of fun though...

Fat and Happy

If you are going to be pregnant you might as well do it with your friends! I was so lucky, Me and 2 of my best friends were all pregnant together. We were due with in days of each other!

It has been so fun having Emily and Chandee to be excited with every step of the way!

The big 24!

For my 24th birthday i was not really thinking about me, all i cared about was the fact that i was 37 weeks pregnant...full term. Brandon had other plans though. He took me out to olive garden for dinner, and had a little surprise party planned for me. It was really nice.

I am so lucky to have such sweet family and friends to celebrate with!

It's a BOY!!

It felt like forever waiting to find out if we were going to have a boy or a girl, and i was pretty convinced it was going to be a girl. I don't know why, that is just what i thought. I wasn't the only one either. Dennis was calling my tummy Lucy the whole time. Watching the ultrasound was an incredible experience! And i was definitely wrong we were going to have a boy! We were excited for either, but as soon as we knew it was a boy we were ecstatic. And now we could stop calling my tummy it and start calling him a he.

We are having a BABY!

I know I am way behind as usual, but i want to post this any way. At thanksgiving time Brandon and I went to California to spend the holiday with our families. During that break we found out we were pregnant! I was late so Brandon decided to go to the 99 cent store to by some pregnancy tests. He bought 2 of them. We went into the bathroom at his parents house and did the tests. Both of them said positive in less than 3 seconds. We were so excited but we didn't want to make any noise because we didn't want people in the house to hear us. at the same time it almost didn't feel real because the tests were from the 99 cent store....long story short they were right!
We decided to tell our parents that week because I was staying in California to work for my dad and Brandon was going back to Idaho to finish the last 3 weeks of school. To tell them we made them think we just wanted to have a family BBQ before everyone left, then we pulled out two little gift bags for each of our parents to open. They were very confused at first, then they opened the bags and saw the diapers, bottles and pacifiers and very quickly understood what we were telling them. We were all soo happy and some of us were even crying.
