Christmas Tree!

No gifts yet...


Dusting off the treet (circa 1970)...


Lights on!


Dylan and Carter know not to touch the tree...but Carter tests his limits (I was somewhat proud by the attempt)...

Mmmm...cheese dip!

Toothy smile!

On this Thanksgiving...

Dylan is thankful for Chick-fil-a!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We spent Carter's 1st Thanksgiving with Nanie and Gramps at Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal...

Daddy...Woody Woodpecker is a woodpecker, hence his name - not a duck...




If you look closely, there is a little man jumping the fence to get the gifts...








Basketball tattoo...
Balloon artist...we got a sword and a laser gun!


Scooby Doo's furry hands are funny!


Happy Thanksgiving!

Carter at 8 Months

Here is an update on Carter at 8 months :) He is such a good baby!
  • crawling very well.
  • has two teeth and is working on more.
  • just started clapping.
  • starting to wave bye-bye.
  • imitates the words we say with sounds.
  • starting to get stranger anxiety.
  • typically a good eater but doesn't like green veggies.
  • trying to pull up to a stand but can only get to knees.
  • wants whatever Dylan has!!!
He is super cute and we are having a blast with him. This is from today at the pool.

Hoops...and sand!

By the expression on his face, I can tell he's thinking, "Daddy. I got this game."


Way in the distance, after a very hard imaginary foul, Dylan tumbles off the court into the sand...


...and thus, it became a bath night.

Dyl's giant hug for Hillary. Good luck in Denver, Hillary & Matt. We will miss you - and the kids simply won't have as many presents coming their way!

Fun with Cousins!

The Sweets have arrived! Dylan picked up right where he left off with them last visit, and Carter eventually warmed up to all the new faces.

Ford, Dylan and David. Yes, Dylan is in an exersaucer.
Carter loves his cousin Hannah (and Nanie, of course!).

Crawling!!!

Carter is on the move :)


video

What you can't see from the video is that he was crawling to get a garbage truck. Just like Daddy!
