Fisher Price Commercial
October 31, 2008 - We
saw Carson's commercial on tv for the first time!! It is real
cool to see your kid in a commercial.
Carson walked up stairs
September 23, 2008 - Today
Carson walked up the stairs for the first time instead of crawling.
At nineteen months, every day is a power struggle
as Carson strives for independence. Outbursts of anger and frustration
is common when Carson is struggling with something that he is
determined to accomplish. Carson loves to draw and wants every
pen he sees.While Carson bursts with energy, he's also more
interested in sitting still longer, especially when he is interested
in something on TV.
Filmed Fisher Price Commercial
June 10, 2008 - Carson
filmed his first commercial for Fisher Price today. He was the
first choice out of over 800 kids!
Carson filmed his first commercial on June
10th. The producers saw over 800 kids and Carson was the one
chosen to be filmed! He was sick on filming day, so hopefully
the final product is good, otherwise they will need to go with
their backup. He is starting to point at everything and shakes
his head "No" when he doesn't want something. Carson
uses a handful of words on a regular basis, which include "Daddy,
Mama, Jazzy, Joey, oh-oh, shoes, Thanks." He is more stable
on his feet and loves to climb all over the furniture. Carson
is fascinated with Uncle Mike's drums and guitar and loves to
listen to him play.
At seventeen months Carson is 20 pounds 8 ounces
and 77 cm tall. He is walking everywhere. On April 30th, he
climbed up on the couch for the first time. Carson had a commercial
audition for Fisher Price Toys on May 6th. He even got a call
back which is a big accomplishment as most kids don't ever make
it this far. He is continuously walking around the house talking
on the cell phone, loves playing in his ball pen and takes toys
apart and puts them back together.
April 6, 2008 -
Carson walked for the first time today. Both
of his parents were present to see him accomplish this huge
Carson finally took his first steps at approximately
1:30pm on April 6th! (16 and half months!). Both his dad and
mom were present to see this big accomplishment. He hasn't grown
much in the last four months due to his fincky eatting habits
so we are working really hard on getting him to eat more. Carson
often cracks up over something he thinks is funny, which keeps
us entertained. We love when he gets excited and yells "daddy"
when his dad gets home from a long day at work.
on his Own
March 16, 2008 - Today Carson wanted
to eat my ice cream so I made him stand while he ate it. He
stood for about 10 minutes all by himself....eating away!!
March 1, 2008 - Carson
came to me out of the blue and gave me kisses for the first
time. This was a really cool moment.
At 15 months, Carson is still not walking. Not
because he is incapable but because he is lazy and a little
scared. He stands on his own until he realizes he is on his
own then down he goes. He knows how to climb into the dishwasher
and can get himself down off the couch without a problem. Carson
enjoys sitting at the dinner table with us and wants to eat
whatever we are eating. He also knows what a brush is and tries
to brush his own hair. Carson is becoming more and more affectionate
and now gives his mom and dad kisses on his own and even tries
to give his puppy dogs kisses too! When Carson sees something
he wants he takes off really fast. He loves chasing the dogs
and playing ball.
Our sweet little boy sure has a mind of his own.
He definitely does not like to hear the word "NO"
and has no problem telling us either. Carson is eating really
well now. He is feeding himself things like toast, fruit, grill
cheese, cake, cookies etc. Carson's newest trick is to crawl
backwards. He thinks this is the greatest thing. Carson has
discovered toilet paper and loves anything with water in it
(toilet, dog bowl)...whatever! Carson is really good at matching
shapes and stacking mega blocks. His love for music is becoming
more and more apparent. He dances and stops whatever he is doing
when a good tune comes on. Soon he will have his own drum set
and guitar as we would like him to pursue this interest. Carson
is still very adaptable to whatever situation he is in. He is
taking one nap during the day and sleeps throughout the night.
At 13 months, the world
is starting to open up for Carson. Although he is still using
furniture or other objects to support himself, he is moving
on his own and no longer has to wait to be lifted or carried.
He is cruising around the house exploring everything he can
get his hands on. With his new freedom he can roam where his
growing curiosity takes him, which usually means opening every
cupboard and pulling the contents out, or playing in the dog
water bowl. Whatever he is up to it is a great achievement.
Carson is also starting to understand simple instructions such
as "clap your hands" or wave "bye-bye".
We call Carson the "Singing Barber" because he will
play with your hair while singing for a long long time...if
you let him.
December 8, 2007 - Carson crawled
up stairs for the first time today
December 2, 2007 - Carson has finally
learned how to crawl the proper way!! Now we can't keep our
eyes off of him. He has already wrecked one of our Christmas
November 26, 2007 - A
couple of days after Carson's first birthday, he pulled himself
up and was found standing while holding on to the sofa. Now
that Carson is able to stand, those magical first steps toward
independence is just around the corner and means a lot more
exercise for me!
One Year Checkup
December 4, 2007
At Carson's First Year check-up he is 18 Pounds,
8 Ounces and 74 cm tall. We are blessed that he is a healthy
One Year Old
We can hardly believe how far our little man has
come in the past 12 months. He started out tiny and helpless,
and now he's mobile, independent, and full of personality. This
coming year will have its own challenges, but for now we are
enjoying what Carson has already accomplished.
I know I haven't been the best at updating his website but
I will try to do a better job this year so make sure to come
back to see the latest addition to Carson's website. Don't forget
to leave us a message in the Guestbook!
