Carson and James are only a few days apart in age, so we were blessed with an instant playmate for Carson when we moved into our house three years ago.
They both played together in this weekends soccer game:
Caroline is James older sister, she is SO patient with these two wild monkeys! (Carson adores her too)
All the kids enjoyed their "daiquiris" after a round of bowling:
I think the boys downed theirs in about 2 minutes.
I can't wait until Summer to see how much trouble these two can get into! ;)

This week you went to your 2 month check-up and had to get your first round of vaccines. Your dad and brother took you, so I was saved from the embarrassment of crying along with you at the doctor's office. Yay!
We also got an update on your stats:

I think you are going to be a Daddy's Boy because he can get you smiling and jabbering better than anyone. And of course he is eating it up! So, when it is picture time Dada always gets called in the room and assigned the job to make you smile. (I obviously took this picture. lol)
P.S. Thanks for the hand-made blanket, Jill! :)

Carson's favorite position is goalie, and he did great at blocking all three balls that were kicked at him.
At the end of practice the team had to decide a name. The coach (who is fabulous, I might add) let the kiddos pick. One kick said the "Purple Team" (their uniforms are red!), another kid said the "Orange Team." lol He had the kids name animals instead. Carson said "how about the 'Horses'?" Coach Mitchell, liked it and said "why don't we call ourselves the STALLIONS!!" Everyone loved it.
...he was still excited to get his uniform and his number. He is #2!
Our game was Saturday and we met before to decorate our cars for the "car parade." The parade consisted of us driving to the field together and honking our horns the whole way there. Carson was excited nonetheless.
The kids looked so cute in their uniforms!

- You celebrated your first holidays this month: St. Patrick's Day & Easter.
- Speaking of "firsts" you smiled for the first time and also started cooing recently.
- We are still so excited by how well you sleep! You are waking up about once at night, and it is almost always at 4:30am on the dot.
- You sleep in our room usually in your carseat or bassinet. Sometimes your Dada sneaks you in bed with us and I will roll over and find your cute little face snuggled up next to me.
- You really love taking a bath! Bath time and first thing in the morning is when we typically get the most smiles out of you.
- You also love looking around and putting your whole hand in your mouth when the pacifier isn't in there.
- You are so alert now and can follow us across the room with your eyes, or look for us when we walk out of your sight.
- Your neck is getting so strong too, and you like laying on your stomach or being held so that you can practice lifting it up.
- Our family is getting into a routine now and life with you is starting to feel "normal." We can't imagine our lives without you in it!

Waiting for the eggs to dye.
Ethan provided us with some music while we worked. Doesn't he totally look like a teenager!?!
The boys stayed up late playing wii, but eventually fell asleep so that the Easter Bunny could stop by. Carson got the "Cars" basket filled with Gormiti & Deacon received the chicken basket with some pacifiers, hats and a teether. Ethan had money in his basket and Austin's had Gormiti's too.
Deacon & Brian got dressed before we woke up the boys. I thought Carson & Brian looked so much alike, but I think Brian & Deacon look like twins!! They are so cute in their matching yellow outfits!
Carson was the first to hop out of bed to check out his Easter basket. He was thrilled to find new Gormiti's (yes, he is still obsessed!).
After the kids finished hunting, they decided to hide eggs for the adults. Since I was hunting, I didn't get a chance to take pictures, but let's just say the adults didn't play fair & nice like our well-behaved children.
