7 Months

I am amazed and have no idea how Carson knows to smile every time a camera is pointed at him, but he is definitely photogenic!
The biggest change with Carson in the last month physically has been his growth of hair. We are glad that he isn't totally bald anymore! His new skill has been to grab Cheerios using his thumb and forefinger. He recognizes his name and will look at you after you say it and he likes all types of food, his and ours. The meat entrees seem to be his favorite because he will ask (grunt) for more.
Since Christmas I don't quite think he knows what to do with himself because he actually has toys to play with, imagine that. I had gone to Babies'R'Us before Christmas to find a present for him and I walked over to the MASSIVE toy isle and felt like the worst parent in the world because there were sooo many toys (educational, lights and sounds, award winners, crib toys, soft&plush toys, car seat and stroller toys, rattles and teethers, classic toys....the list goes on.) You name it, they had it and at home Carson had hardly any at all. The great thing about his age is he didn't know what he was missing out on.

One of my nephews was around cameras so much that he always knew to smile also.
Side note: It's best to perform Annie with a straight face - that way the people in your ward will want to laugh out of embarrassment for you, but they'll be too nervous to laugh since it looks like you're taking it so seriously. That way, it's your own private joke.

Carson so cute. I can't believe it's been 7 months. Man, time goes by fast. Clara doesn't have a lot of hair either. It's like peach fuz.
