Carter's first birthday party

This is just a quick post to say that Carter's first birthday party far exceeded my expectations. It turned out perfect. I had so much fun planning it. I'll be posting more about it including lots of pictures as soon as I have a free moment, but in the mean time I'll leave you with a teaser picture.

Here's the cake. It turned out so much better than I expected. It was a hard cake to make (yes I made it).

Today Carter is 3 days away from turning 1 year old!!! :)

Father's day!

Father's day was great. I wanted to make this father day, Grant's first father's day, a very special I bought him a motorcycle. You have no idea how much he wanted one. I don't like the idea of him riding it but he was going to get one no matter what so I thought I should just be the one to get it for him. He was so surprised/excited/shocked, he had NO idea he was getting it. 

He loves it!

11 month photos...finally!

I know you've all been sitting in front of your computer waiting for this moment, Carter's 11 month photos. I won't keep you waiting any longer, so here you go;

Here you can see his teeth. He has 5 in so far and the 6th one should be here soon.

Today Carter is 11 months and 3 weeks old

Wow, I should be fired from my own blog...'s okay to fire me. I haven't posted for almost a month. You wanna hear something even worse than that? I haven't even taken Carter's 11 month pictures. Yep, that's right it's more than 2 weeks past the day he turned 11 months. Oops.


*Carter is doing great. A few ear infections here and there but he's such a trooper. He had an ear infection in May, then took him in again June 5th because he had another one in his other ear, then during his follow up appointment a week later BOTH ears were infected, then today, at his second follow up appointment, only one ear has cleared up. Honestly though, you'd never even know he was sick. He's such a great baby.

*He's trying to walk unassisted. He cruises along ALL of the furniture and pulls up on anything and everything near him but won't let go yet. He's so funny, he pulls himself up on the TV stand, cruises along it to the bookshelf, then around the corner to the hallway and will walk all the way down the hallway scaling the wall.

*Carter's birthday is just around the corner. I'm so excited for his party. It's going to be so cute and fun. I've been having so much fun planning it.

Oh and I mentioned all those doctor appointments before? Well he gets weighed at all of them so here's his stats;
June 5th; 17 pounds 4 oz
June 11th; 18 pounds
June 17th; 18 pounds 9 oz

Yes, that's right in just 12 days he gained almost 1 and a half pounds. This is great because he needs to gain weight. He's now in the 4th percentile, go Carter. You wouldn't believe how much this kid eats though, it's ridiculous.

I can't even explain how cute he I'll show you! =)

Today Carter is 11 months 2 weeks and 3 days old
