Here is what we've been up to lately.....
-Yesterday was a gorgeous day! We cooked a brisket on our new bbq pit-well actually we got it at a garage sale. Daddy was trying to keep the sun out of Carter's eyes.
Bathtime fun! This child is ALWAYS smiling! I love it!!
Carter's 1st Halloween-he went as an elephant. Is he cute or what?
He loved the costume. Didn't seem to mind a bit.
Still smiling.....

My sis, Carter and Me on our swing. It was such a nice weekend!
I think he played too hard =)
Ty and I went to a wedding Friday night and my sis watched Carter. 1st time to leave him-we got home around midnight. I just had to go in and give him kisses.
I think he is working on some teethies...he is drooling everywhere and all the time. He hasn't been too cranky though so we'll see if one pops up soon.

This is a blog a friend of mine has been following so I checked it out also! Every Wednesday is "Wishful Wednesday"......check out her blog to see what it's all about!

I wish I was going on vacation tomorrow and I was going.......................somewhere TrOPiCaL!! I am thinking of white sandy beaches, pretty blue water, hot sun, toes in the sand and a pina colada in my hand! I'm just gonna close my eyes for a minute...Ahhh! I can almost hear the water ;o)

Pumpkin Patch

We went to a pumpkin patch in Conroe Sunday afternoon to get some pics with the pumpkins. They turned out super cute. Carter is such a great baby-we woke him up from his nap to take the pics. He was in such a great mood the whole time we were there! I think he only gets fussy about once or twice a week. Other than that he's one happy baby =)

We are so thankful to have such a peaceful baby. After months of not sleeping well we are finally in a groove. He goes down around 7:30(in his OWN bed!!) and we don't hear a peep from him until 4 or 5 am!! Then I usually put him in our bed so we can snuggle. We usually fall back asleep until at least 6:30. Sometimes even 7:30!! Sleep is wonderful when you haven't had it in a while! Carter LOVES his baby food too-we have already went through all 5 fruits and veggies in stage one. He usually has cereal and bananas in the morning and then a veggie/fruit or 2 veggies for dinner. I can't believe how much he eats! I honestly think he is sleeping so well because I stuff him full of food! The pedi said babies have the best appetite control and won't eat if they aren't hungry so I'm not worried about it. A full baby makes for a happy baby ;o) Mommyhood is GrEaT!!!!

Me and my sweet, sweet boy!

We had to be in every picture since Carter isn't sitting up by himself yet.

This is the closest we got to getting a pic of Carter by himself! This one's my FAVE!

We tried to prop him in the photo below but he fell over...he looks happy to be rolling in the hay!
Love him!
My mom got him the little camo jacket- I love it!
