A bunch is going on

So, I don't have any pictures because I haven't had time to load them!!! We just got back from visiting Jason and Danielle in Washington and had so much fun! Carter had a blast with his cousins. So, there's lots of pictures to come from that! But we're also in the middle of moving. We've decided to rent out our house so that we can take advantage of the lower house prices now to buy a bigger house. We DID have our house rented already and are halfway moved in to Justin's mom's house, when I get an e-mail from our renters last night saying they can't rent it anymore due to a family emergency! SO SUCKY!!! So, I guess we'll keep trucking along to find another renter!
Also, I think Carter might suffer from night terrors (def: A state of intense fear and agitation sometimes experienced, especially by children, on awakening from a stage of sleep not associated with dreaming but characterized by extremely vivid hallucinations.) Ever since we moved him from his crib to his toddler bed, I think his room kinda freaks him out now when he wakes up. In his crib, I would hear him wake up sometimes, but he would go right back to sleep by himself. I think in his toddler bed, his room seems so much bigger and open when he wakes up. So, for instance, last night, he woke up screaming bloody murder at 2:30, so I went in there and sat with him for a minute and left and he went back to sleep. Then, at 3:30, he woke up again screaming and yelling, "Help me!" He wasn't coming out of his room again, so I went in there and he was sitting in the corner of his bed with his blanket up to his chin crying, "Help me!" It just broke my little heart for him =( I know he's obviously scared to even get out of his bed when he wakes up sometimes. Other times, he'll cry and come running out of his room and want to sleep with us. I just feel so bad when this happens that my little one gets so terrified. Hopefully it doesn't get worse or anything when we move! He was verysad when we left some of his toys over there last night. He got a frowny face and said, "Mine!" when we were walking out the door. Poor guy...

That poor baby! I feel for him. He just needs more cuddly toys around him and put a picture of mommy and daddy by his bed so you're close to him when you're not :)
