LOVE the sunshine!!!

The weather has been just PERFECT lately. I could stand it about 10 degrees warmer though. I am ready for the summer. I have been trying to sit outside during naptime to get a little sun....I am like a ghost! Carter even has more color than me! ha! I need one of those proffesional spray tans...yeah right! I am not standing in front of anyone and letting them spray me. :)

Carter loves the dishwasher! As soon as he sees me open it he's on his way.

Now doesn't he look just pitiful? We had a birthday party earlier that day and my sister was visiting. I think Carter was pooped! I just love this picture though!

Seriously....he is almost ALWAYS smiling!

I love this bathtime picture of him. We did a funky mohawk =) Actually, this was before his haircut. I think. I can't seem to keep track of anything anymore.

We planted some flowers a while back. Just in hanging baskets...I can't keep a flowerbed alive. We planted petunias, impatians, and some hawaiian mix. So far so good! Carter had fun picking all the flowers off. I'm sure he ate a few...but he's a boy so I'm sure he'll eat worse things than that at some point and time! lol!!

Things I am grateful for...

Sleep and springtime!

Well Ty and I have been dreaming for months what it would be like to sleep past 5 am. Carter has been waking up between 5-6 am every morning for a bottle. Sometimes he goes back to sleep and sometimes he doesn't. It happened like magic...all of a sudden...As soon as Carter hit 10 months he started sleeping until at least 7. Crazy huh? I don't know why or what triggered it but let me just say....IT'S AMAZING! Waking up in the morning before he does is so nice. I get my coffee and then wait for him to wake up. :) I love it! Our little man is growing up....

We bought this little wagon about a week ago and we LOVE it! Especially Carter! We go for rides everyday. If he's fussy I stick him in it and we go for a ride. It seems to do the trick! :o) If you have a little one-I would definitely suggest buying one. Ours is Step2 brand. I even put it together all by myself! YAY! Oh and the corn was for the squirrels...LOL!

The weather has been perfect lately! Carter and I have been taking advantage of it and spending a lot of time outside.

This is the box Carter's new wagon came in. He was so curious about what was inside of it. I put the ball in it and he crawled through. :)


So does his Aunt Ashy!

Carter is finally on the move!!

Carter saw me getting some foil out of the drawer last night while I was cooking. Next thing I know, he is right under my feet! So I put him back on the rug where he was and sure enough...he was CRAWLING!! yay!! When Daddy got home we had to re-inact it for the camera. =) He just made our day!!

Carter's 1st Haircut!!!

Carter was giving his daddy a very serious look. Wonder what he was thinking??

He did so good! He sat in the chair by himself and didn't cry one bit. I didn't expect him to cry because he hardly ever does- but I thought he would at least be fussy. He was such a big boy!

Carter was so cute while she was cutting his hair. He kept trying to look behind himself to see her. Once he found the mirror he just stared at her.

The lady who cut his hair gave us the sweetest 1st haircut certificate for his baby book. It almost made me cry!

Carter Jay is growing up!! He will be ten months before we know it. I have finally figured out what we are going to do for his birthday....a MONKEY theme! I cannot wait to have his party!! Being a mommy is so much fun :~)

A teacher friend of mine, Kahla, always post things she is grateful for at the end of her posts....So I am going to do the teacher like thing and copy her! LOL....

I took Carter's duck tub out so he can take big boy baths now. He still likes to play in it : )

He LOVES mashed potatoes!
