We had a jam packed day for Carson's birthday. First, after waking up, Carson opened his gifts from us and Meme, my Godmother in Florida. The kids played for a bit.
Then we got ready and headed to story time at the library. Carson had a great time and danced more than ever. He's really getting into it now. Then we went to lunch at Luby's, our first time there. After lunch we headed to the zoo. This was Carson's second time going. He was only 5 weeks old for his first visit. We ended up getting a yearly membership which I'm really excited about. The zoo is getting so big. There's too much to do in one day, especially if it's really hot, like yesterday. It'll be nice to go often and at our leisure without having to feel like we need to do it all to get our moneys worth for the day. We're really lucky that Houston has such a nice zoo.
After the zoo we swung by our pediatrician's office for Carson's one year well visit. Yes, mean Momma! In my defense, the office isn't that close by our house and is on the way home from the zoo. Plus, having Joe stay in the car with Finley was super nice instead of me having to tote both kids there alone on a separate day. So, there's that. It was quick and little man didn't even cry for the first shot! Tough boy. He did for the second but only briefly. I was really surprised. Carson now weighs 17lb 6oz. He was 5lb 8.5oz at birth. Our little peanut. I didn't even get his height or head measurement but Dr.K said everything matches up perfectly.
Then it was time for dinner with family after a quick run to pick up the cake. Tradition. This is the same restaurant we had our engagement dinner at as well as Finley's first and second birthday dinners.
After our action packed day we were all exhausted, especially our ONE year old. Joe commented after we finally got home "wow, we really squeezed it all in today". Indeeeeed we did.
