Sleeping Beauty

 This is my favorite picture that I have taken of you yet! Sleeping so peaceful and my little sleeping beauty :)

I have to remember this when things such as this happen: I was changing your diaper and you had gone poo. Well evidently you werent done bc as soon as I got the diaper off you had explosive poop that shot across the room. It literally went on the walls and in your diaper cady. GROSS! But I still love you :)

 Daddy is in charge of keeping you awake at night just before we put you down. Here you are doing everything you can to go to sleep but he just wont let you!!!
sweet kisses

Catching up on sleep

 This morning Mommy decided we needed to catch up on our sleep instead of wear ourselves out by going to church. You of course are always good at sleep and even getting better at it at night! We hung out with Daddy when he got home and then went back with him for the evening service. You stayed with us in the service and made lots of grunting noises and even burped a few times. I was SO thankful I decided to leave when I did though bc you pooted like a grown man as soon as I did. Whew.. are you trying to embarrass Mommy, son? :)

Happy birthday Mommy!

 Today is your Mommy's 28th birthday! To have you here to celebrate it with me makes it EXTRA special!!! You wore your "I love Mommy and Mommy loves me" shirt. OH SO TRUE :)

 we went to Isaac's birthday party and you did a lot of what you do best.. SLEEP!

Lily loves holding you!

I am so blessed to be the wife of your Daddy and a Mommy to you two boys!!!

Eat, Eat and EAT!

This was the view I had of you most of the day. You are still in your 2 week growth spurt and just about every time I nurse you are still hungry and have to have another 2 ounces of formula. I am starting to worry that its not just the growth spurt but also that I am not producing enough for you. We are making sure you get fed though, dont worry :)

Growth spurt!!

 You are getting a little baby acne on your sweet little face and although I know there isnt much I can do (its just a phase and your brother had it too) I just feel bad!
 Daddy loves to come home and get your kisses!

 You are very alert these days. When you are awake, you will sit and just look at us!

 You and Mommy took your first trip to Walmart for a few groceries. Uncle Phil came over to hang out with Griffin so we could have some time together. I ended up getting some formula so that I would have it on the occasion that you needed it and I am sure glad I did! You ate 4 times in 4 hours tonight- can we say, "GROWTH SPURT!"

Mommy's little man

You did okay tonight and I think its from practicing with our naps on your side during the day. You slept from 11-3, and ate again at 6 and 9. Judson came to meet you today and Griffin was excited to play with his buddy Ella Claire. I cant wait until you are big enough to play too! We also went to Wednesday night church for the first time. You did good but your brother had a meltdown so I am thinking we will wait to do that again for awhile :)

practicing your naps in the crib!

Adorable Mr. Froggie

Today we tried out sleeping on your tummy. You always sleep the very best in Mommy's arms but we are trying to get you used to your crib now. I think your favorite position is actually to be swaddled and on your side!

2 week checkup

 Today was Mommy's first day at home with just you two boys! The morning went very well and I was so thankful. I did learn it takes a long time to get the 3 of us ready to get out the door... but I was so proud because we actually made it to your doctor's appointment 15 minutes early!

You have gained 1 pound and 3 ounces in 11 days! I knew you were an eating machine but goodness little boy!!! Doctor Ercolino said you looked very good and the appointment went well except that you peed when we stripped you down to weigh you. Always an adventure :)
 Grayson came over to meet you today. Love seeing you 3 boys together!!

We took you to church for the first time today! It was quite the adventure getting 2 boys ready to go... but we made it! You are still so small that nothing fits really so we had to roll your pants up 3 times so they wouldnt fall down ha!
You were a very good little boy- slept through the whole service!!!

Funny story about your protective big brother: Anytime anyone other than Mommy was holding Carter, you would say, "No, Mommy hold him!" He wanted to make sure you were okay, knew you belonged in Mommy's arms and didnt want to share you :)

It was our first day at home with just our family of FOUR! It went pretty well and I loved seeing my 3 boys together :)
Daddy gave you your first bath.... you werent too sure about it at first and cried.
Once you got used to being naked and the water you liked it more!
All soapy! Daddy made sure to get you VERY clean :)
All done

First long car ride and walk at the park

We drove 1/2 way to TN today to take Mimi to meet Potts. We were all sad to see her go!! You did excellent on the car ride... sleeping just about all 6 hrs we were in the car.

You finally fit in an outfit and looked "too cute for words!"

When we got back home we decided to take a trip to the ballpark because it was so pretty outside. You and Griffin had your first ride in the double stroller!
You did what you do best the whole time... SLEEP!

We attended your first birthday party for Mommy and Daddy's friend Brian from church. We were proud to show you off and yet again all you did was sleep :)

Lots of sleeping

I am learning that with the 2nd baby, I cant just sit around and let you sleep on me all the time. SO... we practiced sleeping in different places today... and you didnt seem to mind!
Big brother will say, "Shhh, Carter sleeping!"

sweet boy... you love holding your hands together
