A whole lot of CORN

Your new favorite vegetable is corn these days! You can devour about half of a can all by yourself. Now unfortunately its not all that nutritious and comes out of you looking the same way it goes in.... but I'm glad you like it!

Fun with Mommy

 When you get up from your afternoon nap you always join me in the kitchen while I cook dinner. Today you woke up extra smiley and so I played a game of peekaboo with the camera. You silly boy, oh how I cherish that smile :)

Big boy table

It is sometimes the little things that remind me how big you are getting. Tonight before church we had a snack in Griffin's classroom and you were able to sit with him at the big table. What a big boy you are!

Getting brave

You have been taking steps here and there for a few weeks now but tonight while we were having dinner with friends you were extra brave! You took about 5 in a row and the most yet!

Dinner with friends

 We went to dinner with the Messersmiths tonight. One last celebration for the birthday boy and just a great excuse to hangout since we dont get to see them that often.

Griffin and Papaw... and because I dont think I've ever shared this with you. Yes his name is really Micah but your Daddy has been calling him Papaw ever since I was pregnant with your brother. He is one of your Daddy's bestest buds and because he has grandfather-ish characteristics.. he is your "Papaw" :)

I apologize for the blur in the picture but you truly never are still enough for a picture anymore. The reason for this picture was to show how much you CHEW on everything! Its non-stop teething these days so you will chew on anything for relief!

Here is the picture from you!

Bye bye buggy

Its crazy to believe that you are already big enough for the bye bye buggy. This is the stoller they have at church that everyone loves and so tonight while we were waiting for the service to start I took you and your brother for a stroll.

Messy eater

I could give you a bath after every time you eat... and you are just proud of the mess you can make!

Mickey Mouse Cleanup!

 You two are Mickey Mouse crazy. Anytime you are crying if I give you Mickey you stop. And ANY time you hear the hotdog dance song you start clapping!
Today during playtime you learned to follow your brother's lead and helped clean up! You were dropping blocks back in the bin and I was shocked and impressed!

 Good morning to you
 Good morning dear Carter
good morning to YOU!

Super Carter!

Griffin got out his new cape and mask tonight and we put it on you as well. You of course wanted to rip it off as soon as we did but it lasted long enough to get a few pictures :)

Your brother has been shooting the basketball a lot lately and I am so thrilled to see you more aware of balls now too!

Party Animal

 You went to one of your first birthday parties today for Miss Lottie Messersmith. She turned 2 and had a Sesame Street party and you were quite the party animal! First of all you wore the party hat which made me ever so excited for you to wear one on your own bday!
 Griff and the birthday girl at the kid table, which you frequented often and almost pulled the whole tablecloth off of!
 The Isham boys
 Loved blowing the horn too
and even pretended to be her baby doll in her new stroller :)

NCAA Championship game

 We watched the NCAA championship game tonight at Aunt Carolina and Uncle Brandon's house. Caro is a big BAMA fan and they in fact beat LSU!!
 Caroline was happy to have you at her house and specifically in her arms!
 We also practiced some walking. You do walk holding onto our hands or anything you can grab but are still not brave enough to let go!
You brothers did have a sweet group hug :)

Caught... AGAIN!

Pretty much a repeat of yesterday, and every day for that matter these days! Carter LOVES food and has now found a way to find it when he wants it :)

Monday, January 9, 2012

Look what I found!

Again, you love the kitchen. And food. So this morning after breakfast I follow you in the kitchen and you go straight for the cabinet where you know the food is. You proceed to get out these breakfast bars that love and showed it to me. Ok Carter, I understand you cant talk but you can definitely communicate... especially when you get something and hold it up to me and grunt as if, "I want This!"

Jump Jump!

We spent the afternoon over at the Jones' house, with the James family as well. You and Heather had a blast on the trampoline!
