11 months old...Really?!!

Wow! I can't believe Carter is so close to ONE YEAR! It is crazy really! Like clockwork-right at eleven months he started pulling up on things. Yikes!
He has been working on it for about two weeks. He would crawl over to the coffee table and get up on his knees but couldn't stand up. Well now that he figured out how, he is pulling up on EVERYTHING. It's a little scary.

So....this is what happened. I was cooking supper and carter was playing with the dishwasher...SITTING on the floor. He was banging and splashing in the little bit of water that was in the lid. He started to get very quiet so I turned around and this is what I saw!!!! He was ON TOP of the dishwasher lid!! How did he manage that?? Not sure but it almost gave me a heart attack! (The next day is when he started pulling up.)

Carter acting silly in the bathtub...like always! This boy will smile at anyone-at anytime! I just love it!!

My little 11 month old! He is so handsome :)

Usually I don't let the dogs lick all over his face but this was too cute...and bathtime was right around the corner. He just giggled and giggled every time Clyde would lick him. So cute!!

~~I am grateful for:
-11 of the BEST months!
-being a mommy
-Carter's sweet smile
-baby giggles

Bluebonnets are here!

On Saturday went to my parents in Jewett for the day. My dad bar-b-qued and we sat around and laughed-mostly at Carter. He is so silly. He makes the cutest faces and noises. Ty and Chris(my sister's fiance) went fishing and caught a bunch! We brought home 3 bags of bass. Good thing Chris and Ashley don't eat fish.
There is always a HUGE field of bluebonnets down the road from my parents house. My mom, sister and I decided to take Carter and get a few pics while the guys were fishing....we actually took a TON! He was too precious and SO curious! It was really sunny and really hot but we made some good memories!
Hope your Easter was GREAT!!

My mom took this one of me, my sis, Carter and my dad. We couldn't stop giggling! My dad was like "Come on girls!" He is not a picture taker at all.

Carter and Gran

I love this one. We kept making him clap in hopes he would look at the camera. It really wasn't working.

As you can see, the sun was in his eyes. He was such a trooper though.

I found this dishpan thing on my mom's porch and thought it would be cute in the pictures. I think it turned out cute!!

He is the sweetest thing!!!

As soon as we sat Carter down in the flowers he started picking at them. He was very curious. I wonder what he was thinking? :)


Things I am grateful for:
-wildfowers and bluebonnets
