Watch his weight...

This past sunday Devin and I got out our dominos and played Mexican Train (thank you Jesse and Emily for teaching us that game). Well Carter wanted to play too. So we took all the dominos and put them into carters onesie, and he actually tried to crawl with all of them in his shirt. It was pretty funny.


Mom... What are you doing to me?


OH that is what is in my shirt...





Playing with Daddy... He LOVES daddy...
It is so sweet to listen to babies trying to talk like we do...

Growing Up

I was just reading my friend Brooke's Blog and read that she uses her blog like a journal. Great Idea. So I am going to do the same. Thank you brooke for the idea.

Crawling...
Well Carter is growing up so fast. He is crawling all over the place. Our apartment is small so we take him to places like RC willey and let him down. He puts his head down to focus and takes off. He goes so fast. Then he stops, sits up and looks around to see how far he had gone. His little knees, toes and hands get so dirty. He will also play with us. We go and hide around a corner and he will slowly come and peek around the corner at us then get way excited and back up and do it all over again. He is pulling himself up on everything also. The past couple days he has been smashed by a mirror, (it didn't break thank goodness), a dvd rack (and all the dvds), a big picture and a vaccuum. He has had a hard week. But we are learning very quickly how to baby proof EVERYTHING!!!

Eating...
Carter loves eating!!! Everything we eat, he wants a bite. He loves chicken and beef with gravy, green beans, peas, squash, bread, tortillas, cheerios, veggie cheetos, gold fish, crackers, multi grain baby cereal, carrots, pears, mostly all vegatables, ice cream and otter pops. (don's ask)

He's not to fond of: peaches, apples, grapes, applesauce, any kind of juice, rice cereal with apples, and mango. So he really likes his veggies but not his fruit. I can't complain...

He has 6 teeth now, and I know, from the past few sleepless nights, that there are more coming.

Fun Times...
Things are so much fun when you have a little one to enjoy them with. Who knew that swimming every single day could be so much fun. Or swinging in a tree swing, or reading silly kiddy books, or trying different kinds of food for the first time. Life is so much fun through little eyes.
They learn so fast and so much... it is hard to grasp. I hope he knows how much I love him and how proud I am of him and all that he has learned how to do. He is such a happy baby and he is loved by so many people.

My Only 2 Cousins... and Yes they are girls...:-( But they are beautiful

This past weekend we were able to go to Idaho to see Devins Sisters, Hilary and Nat and Nats 2 little girls... Sophie and Ivy. It was the first time we got to meet Ivy and man was she cute. Carter was twice her size... as you can tell.  But that is because he is a Man.

We were trying to get a picture of all of them together looking at the camera, but like most men, Carter got distracted... 
So we just stuck with the girls... they like the camera...

It was so great being able to be with  all of Devins family this weekend. It will be so fun when Sophie, Carter and Ivy all grow up and be around the same age. Family reunions won't be so boring for them now. 

Big Bath and LIttle Bath Time

At Our apartment complex we have a very nice clean pool. And  Carter loves it. Grandma and Grandpa Hendersen bought this little blow up car for him to swim in and he loves it. He kicks his feet and splashes his arms and  is just in heaven. 


As for his little baths... He cries when ever we take him out. And He no longer likes his toys, but this pumpkin flavored shampoo is now his favorite. 

I am not sure how sanitary bath water is, but compared to the other things that he has eaten, well...this is definitely not bad.
