I see it's been a few weeks since I've posted anything. Well, everyone is doing great. Carter is growing too fast. He's not crawling on his hands and knees yet, and I don't think he will, but he sure does get around by scooting. He's showing a lot more interest in walking now too. He pulls himself up on anything and everything he can get his hands on and he loves to stand. Lately his new favorite thing is to stand in the crib and jump. It's really cute. The crib mattress is lowered all the way and the drop side is up so there's no way he could get out.

Carter LOVES daycare. He even has a little "girlfriend" there and they like to share toys and get in trouble together. I think Carter's best friend of all is Coco though. It's so cute, if Carter is upset or crying all we have to do is call Coco over and he's all better. It works wonders, lol.

There's not much else going on. His 1st birthday party is just a little over 5 weeks away, I can't wait.

Today Carter is 10 months, 2 weeks and 6 days old.

10 month pictures

Yep it's that time again. Time for Carter's monthly pictures. Every month I say it but I can't believe it's been another month. His 1 year birthday is NEXT MONTH!!! I'm starting to do a little planning for his party and while I'm so shocked that my baby is going to be a year old I'm so exciting to be throwing him a birthday party. 

Here are some pictures that were taken over the last couple of weeks. 

Carter doesn't have another appointment until July 1st, his 1 year check up, so I won't have his official weight or length until then. But in the mean time I may get it myself.

Carter has been doing so good! I swear his is the BEST baby that I've ever met.  He's learning so much, you can just see him take everything in that his little (well big, really) eyes are capable of. Here are some things that he's up to now a days;

* Clapping (if I say "yay" or "good job" he will clap)
* Pulling himself up to stand
* Plays Peek-a-boo
* Feeds himself finger foods
* Tries to walk while holding our hands
* Still not crawling on hands and knees but he can scoot really fast =)
* Recognizes words like; mama, dada, coco, grandpa, fan, no, Carter
* He knows the work"No!" really well. When I say no he immediately drops whatever he's doing/holding/trying to eat

I'm sure there's more but it's late and that's all I can think of.

A couple of weekends ago Grant and I took Carter up to his his great grandparents in Oregon. They live in a beautiful house just 2 blocks from the beach. We had a great time. Carter did so well on the 6 hour drive on the way there and back. Here are some pictures from that trip;

Well this post is already long enough and I'm pretty sure there's some kind of cap on how many pictures can be posted so I'll save my post about my newly-almost-completely-painted kitchen. It turned out really good!

Today Carter is 10 months and 4 days old
