Birthdays and friends

So we moved to Norman almost 3 months ago...that seems unreal!
Well we have met some wonderful friends while living here!
Our neighbors are fabulous people and they have a 2 year old named Arya, he and Gabe love playing together and almost every evening you can find our two families sitting in our front yards spending time playing with our boys and enjoying each others company!
Below is a picture of Arya's mom, Manjew. She loves Gabriel and Gabe loves her, anytime he sees her he reaches for her...i love it!

Well my big boy turned ONE a couple of weeks ago!
I can not believe how fast the time has gone by. He is getting so big so fast! He is crawling ALL over the place, up stairs, into the bathtub, out the back door! We are having so much fun!
Here are a few pictures of Gabes birthday party!

Here he is tuckered out and ready for a nap with my mom
Here he is trying on his new sun glasses:)

I mean no one ever say that my boy doesnt get excited about food...just like his momma:)

We are so excited for the summer and loving this beautiful weather that we have been having!
Carter is officially done with work for the next 2 months so we are looking forward to being  able to spend more time with each other and just enjoy our family!
We leave for florida next week and can not wait!
I hope that all of you are having a wonderful summer so far!

Carter and I found out that we were pregnant a couple of weeks ago.  While we were pretty shocked we were also SO SO very excited!
Well yesterday I found out that I miscarried. I don't really know how to articulate the way that I was or am feeling, it was a sadness that can not be comforted, it just has to take its course. I felt, and still feel sad, confused, disappointed, and anxious.  My heart hurts for this baby that Carter, Gabriel, and I will never know until we get to Heaven. It really just puts things into perspective for us.
So please excuse me if I am a little somber, somewhat not fun, and not very talkative for the next few days.  I just need to be sad....
