For the first time in his life, Carson finally left Grand Rapids and ventured out to Lake Michigan. On Sunday we celebrated Nate's mom's birthday in Grand Haven . Before we left I gathered all the things I could think of that Carson might need; baby things may be small, but boy do they add up! Our car was packed to the brim by the time we left. When we arrived Grand Haven was surprising warm (eliminating the blankets, hat, and sweatshirt I packed for Carson). I doubt Carson ever realized that he was anywhere significant, but we had a lot of fun taking him around to all the sights.
More familiar to Carson of course was his check up again with Dr Foody, his neurologist. We were pleased to hear that Carson's head ultrasound looked great. In fact, Carson won't be back for another head ultrasound until July!
Recently Nate and I got to hear Carson's first baby laughs! It was probably the most adorable thing I've ever seen/heard. Adorable and slightly awkward; think Goofy's laugh but in a baby's voice:) Ever since the first set of laughs we've been trying to get him to do it again. Apparently we're not funny enough; he doesn't laugh often, but he sure gives us lots of smiles so we're thankful for that!
Please keep Carson in your prayers this week. We're visiting his eye doctor again.
