186

That is the number of times Carson said my name between 9:30 and 11:30 am, one hundred and eighty six times, unbelievable...I actually think he might have said it more but I lost track when he said "mommy" multiple times in a row. This morning I took him to the mall to play because it had rained last night and was still a little gloomy out plus it is always nice to get out the house. So we get to the mall and he literally is the only kid who will not just go play, all the kids are running around, climbng, sliding, and exploring. He would venture off somewhere and then call my name or cling to my arm and end up crawling in my lap. He is so attached to me and it drives me crazy! I love that he is a lover-boy and that he likes to cuddle and I undertand that I am his only play-mate most often but sometimes a little space would be nice. He was not being bad mind you just clingy and it makes me wonder what will I ever do with two? I have never before counted his words but I was getting a little annoyed and was quickly becoming irritated with a headache to boot and thought to make light of the situation I would make a game out of it and it helped! I guess I am just anxious for Andrew to come home, I think I am realizing that three days is my limit.

Post-nap update, up ten minutes 24 "mommy's" and counting but what I realize is that although he may drive me crazy he makes me feel like a million bucks the next. I'm going to go cuddle that sweet boy who is all curls because he sweats when he sleeps and enjoy these moments because I don't know anyone who loves me as much as he does...ok maybe my husband but that's a close call.

hahahah....okay...I can only laugh because my kids have ALL gone through that phase. It will get better and he will definitely learn to be more independent when baby #2 comes :)!!

Oh...and we were at the mall too - I didn't see you though. WE did a little shopping and then played for a bit at the tiny play place near Children's Place.

Yeah we started at the small play place and ended up at the other one. I think I saw you when you walked by The Body Shop, at that moment Carson was playing on the Bob the Builder tractor, sorry I missed you!

Go Tiffani - you really are patient. What a way to make a game out of it. Miss you guys, & Will misses having a playmate.

Carson is the sweetest! It will be so fun with two! {how are you feeling, btw?} But yeah, I think they almost sense that another one is coming and then get all clingy. Enjoy the cuddle time! I hear they grow out of it, but I'm hoping not!

The good thing about 2 kids is that they play WITH each other and don't need Mommy all the time...which is so nice! I miss it in a way, but it's a whole other freedom.

Hope you're feeling well.

That is so sweet... yet annoying. That is a great way to keep sane though, I'll have to keep that in mind next time I'm hearing my name constantly.
