A Cars Obsession

I've wanted to write about Carson's obsession for a while now, and this sleeping picture I got last week fits the subject perfectly.
Carson generally has no interest in the TV, but a while back he suddenly became riveted to the movie Cars. Since then Cars has become an obsession. He excitedly points out anything he sees recognizable from the movie and the Cars books we have have become his favorite (and the books are now looking a little more "well loved") Even when we went to the lake a bit ago, just looking at the Cars print on one of the other boys' T-shirts lying around made him happy after being rather cranky. When another kid came to see what was so interesting and started touching the shirt, Carson got all upset and possessive.
The Cars obsession has now actually morphed to include all vehicles. Our truck books are now getting as much action as the Cars books and even car commercials get him pointing and saying his Carson words used for all the vehicles (we don't know what he's saying, but it's always the same thing for that stuff).

I should also give a shout out to Curious George as Carson's major likes go. Avery had a large stuffed Curious George like the one in this pic that recently Carson has become attached to (luckily, as much as Avery loves Monkey George, he never attached to that stuffed animal). So Curious George (who really is large - his head is bigger than Carson's) is a preferred bed mate as well now and the Curious George books are also now getting some serious preference.

I'm adding this next picture just because it fits the sleeping theme. It's from last Saturday and I liked Carson's bed head. Don't worry, the sad face doesn't last long, you can see the tearfulness went away in minute and then he just looked like he was still waking up... I wish when I get all red and puffy it went away in only a minute!!!

Carson has almost the same look on his face as Curious George does. What a sweet boy. I can't wait to come and give him a big hug.

Happy Due Date tomorrow! Sorry you're still pregnant. And as far as names go, since I will never need another boy name again (yay! Blog high-five!) I am passing my final fave name on to you: Tucker.
