It's been awhile, yes I know. But better late than never right? I thought I'd write some updates for anyone who actually reads this.
Carter: Will be 4 in a few weeks. He's such a great kid. The terrible 2's were a little rough, and the horrible 3's were a little more than rough, but we've noticed that he's starting to calm down a little bit. He is seriously the best big brother in the world. We knew he was going to be a great big brother but I had no idea he would be this great. Carter has the biggest heart in the world and would do ANYTHING for his "Miss Olivia". He's always making sure that she's happy and shares all his favorite things with her. Don't get me wrong though, he still goes through times where he likes to pick on her and take her toys, but luckily that's not too often.
Carter's favorite things; bananas, watching Netflix or playing games on Daddy's tablet, cake, poles and trees, birthday parties, peeing on trees, the ocean, his grandparents, baths, camping, water puddles, anything sweet, Spiderman, dancing, and of course his little sister.
Olivia: Oh boy does she have her own personality. And it's a BIG one! She's cute and she knows it for sure. And she's such a ham. She's a great kid though. She’s learning new words every day. I can't even count the words that she knows because she's constantly saying new ones. Her most said words would be; mamma, daddya, dog-dog, Carter, Coco, more (this is a heavily used word as she is a big pig), yeah, ball. There's more. Like yesterday she said Santa when we were reading a Christmas book. She's fun, always keeping us on our toes. And like I mentioned before she's a pig. She eats more than Carter at times. But she's still tiny. At her 15 month appt she was only 19 pounds 6 ounces. I don't remember how tall but she was 50th percentile for height, 25th percentile for weight, and something like 75th percentile for head circumference (haha, she's her father's daughter for sure).
Olivia's favorite things; eating, making a mess, animals, brushing her pretty hair, baths, dancing, holding her babies, sleeping (still takes two naps a day), singing, being outside, her big brother Carter, tickling people, Mickey Mouse, and playing doctor.
I'm 30 years old and I married the man of my dreams on June 21st, 2008. We have a house, a dog and awesome friends and family. We found out we were expecting our first child just four months after the wedding and we were so excited. Carter was born June, 2009. Just before Carter's second birthday we found out we were expecting again, and along came Olivia in February 2012. We have a perfect family now. Life is great!
