Carson's been my "baby" for 5 years now. That's a long time to get comfortable in your family position and I worried he might have a hard time "giving up the throne" to a new baby sister. To help him make the transition from BABY to BIG BROTHER, while I was in the hospital I asked my wonderful mother-in-law if she wouldn't mind taking Carson to the store to pick out a special gift that he -- only he -- could give to Charlotte to welcome her to the family. He then got to make a visit, all by himself, no other brothers or sister allowed, to his new baby sister.
We had to chuckle when we saw what he'd picked out. I figured he'd get a little book or maybe a baby rattle. Nope...he got a stuffed animal. Or should I say "stuffed alien"? It's a pint-sized Yoda doll. Truly a gift from Carson's heart!

It looks right at home with Charli's
other little toys, don't you think?
