A crazy month!

This has been a crazy month so far! Starting back to work, taking Carter to the babysitter, and all in all trying to help my baby boy gain weight! I have also been trying to book people parties for Scentsy with all the new things they have coming in the Fall. Carter turned 4 months old on the 20th and tomorrow my goal is to put up his 4 month post!
All for now. How are you all? Has it been crazy for you?

Blog hop- Encouragement

Don't mind the just got out of the shower have no makeup on look. I just wanted to share my sweet boy with you
This weeks theme is Encouragement!

Here is my favorite saying....... "When you are at the end of your rope reach out and find the hem of his garment.." Someone sent this to me this past year and it really touched me. I wrote it down on a sticky note and left it on my desk at work so I could always read it. I think that the reason I love it so much is that it reminds me that I am never alone and can only do everything I do through God. Everyone has rough days, things that don't go the way you think that they should, or just feel down sometimes and this should remind you that he is always with you and will never let you give up! My mom always told me growing up God will never give you more than you can handle. As a kid or really a teenager this is such a hard concept to understand. But now as an adult and a new mother I realize that this is such a true quote. All the things that you thought as a teenager were going to be the death of you or the things that you then thought would never get better were really not the end of the world and you will get through it! If only I could have known that back in high school! :)
Do you feel this same way? My 5th graders I teach sometime throughout the year will always ask me what it was like when I was in 5th grade or in High school and I always have to remind myself to be professional and not tell them oh how I would never go back and do that again~! While I loved SOME moments of my schooling back then you just grow up so much from then to who you will be now and oh how life gets so much better! Enough rambling What do you think?

We found our feet!

We had a very fun busy weekend! I have been wondering when Carter was going to find his feet and I was so happy on Friday he did! I was working on the computer and Carter was on his mat playing and I looked over and he had his foot in his hand. I had to take a picture for Daddy because he is always at work and misses all the fun. Ryan's mom watched Carter on Friday night so we could have a date! We went to the Cheesecake Factory and to see the movie The Ugly Truth. It was a fun night. Saturday we all went shopping and to Ryan's sister Leslie's house in Allen. Sunday was fun because Leslie and I got up early and went to Canton and then a package came to our house! I had been wanting to order Carter the Praise Baby DVD set and the sleepy time cd but thought I would wait until he was 3 months old. IT CAME SUNDAY! If you have not heard of it check out the website It is like Baby Einstein except it uses Christian songs! Here are a few pictures of Carter watching his first DVD yesterday!

I think he was singing along here!

Getting a little tired mommy!
He would smile every time a baby would come on the screen!
