The "Great-Grans" were so cute together! Two peas in a pod...

I hope this entry finds everyone well! I can't believe that 2009 is almost over - what a year for our family... new baby, move, job changes, new house... so many blessings and so much to be thankful for. Brent and I feel SO blessed.
Noah is growing up so fast! He is 9.5 months and crawling everywhere! He is always on the go, and I have a feeling it won't be too long before he starts walking. He continues to be the delight of our lives - such a ray of sunshine. His toothy smile is the best! He enjoys reading books with mommy, hanging out in the wagon while Daddy does yardwork, and playing peek-a-boo. Love that little boy!
Christmas was a fun one this year. Brent's parents and grandmother came down, and on Christmas day Granna, Ed, Tal, and my parents were here too. It was great to have everyone together. Noah had fun unwrapping the presents on Christmas morning... he was more interested in the paper than the toys. :-) He got a rocking horse, and has already got the hang of riding it!
We are ready for the next year and are excited about what's to come. May God bless you in this New Year and always!

Fall Oh Nine!

I can't believe it's already November!! Time is flying by, and our Noah is already almost 8 months. He is sitting up, and gets into crawl position... but no crawling yet! I actually kind of like him stationary. :-) He is such a delight! Full of giggles and smiles. Brent and I have loved watching this little person develop! He is going to be one special kid!

We've had a great Fall so far, and have really gotten settled into our home. Brent is really enjoying a much needed relaxed work schedule, and I am working one day a week. I sure love my time home with Noah - it's definately where my heart is!

Noah was a lion for Halloween, and was the cutest thing ever! His costume really displayed his big blue eyes... we sure love our "little boogins"!

Home Sweet Home!

We're here!!! Finally! Brent, Noah and I have settled into our new home and we just adore it! It is such a peaceful, special place - not many like it. We have been enjoying coffee on the front porch in the morning and sunsets under the jasmine in the evening. We've only been here for one week, but it feels like we've been here forever - the perfect place for the Carnathan family!

The past few months have been busy ones... living in a one bedroom apartment after our house sold, a trip to Florida for job searches, buying our beautiful home, attending the Tennessee Walking Horse Celebration, and celebrating Brent's 30th Birthday! Brent's party was held at Tombigbee State Park in Tupelo, MS and we celebrated with friends and family. We caught up with the Dick cousins, Gran, Aunt Jackie, the Parrott and Black families, the Whites, the Kellys, and other friends. Brent had a hard time blowing out all those candles. :-) Noah finally got to meet Avery White, Kelly and Micah's daughter, who was amazingly born on the same day as Noah! They LOVED each other! Noah had his first kiss! They were adorable together. Weston and Noah got to spend some QT together too!

Noah is almost 7 months, and is sitting up well. He continues to be the light of our lives! He laughs and smiles all the time! He loves his new house, and is so glad to have his nursery back! I just can't believe that my baby is getting so big... time really does fly.

It's been a whirlwind, and now that we are mostly unpacked it's time to breath again. Saying goodbye to friends and family in Tennessee and Mississippi was hard and we will miss all of you greatly. We hope to visit soon and are open to company any time!

I think that Noah is just as glad to be HOME.

Brent's 30th Birthday!

My best girls and our precious ones!

Hard to believe we've been best buds for 12 years now...

Parrotts and Carnathans

It was SO great to see Kelly and Micah, and meet sweet Avery!
Noah and Avery, March 5th babies, meet for the first time! I missed the moment they actually kissed!!!

Catching up the Laurie, Henry and the boys!

Saying goodbye to Sarah... AND getting excited about baby Bennett! He'll be here soon! Can't wait to meet him!

Noah... 6 1/2 months!
