Yoda-layheehoo! He's not "the baby" anymore!

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?
Yes, the force is strong with this one...

A true boy. That will be a fun story to tell her over and over. He will be her protector as she grows up because they will be together the most in the family. Wyatt and Halle will be gone when she is in those hard middle school years but Carson will be there for her. We are excited and happy fro you all.
